COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brooklyn Pilsner is a refreshing golden lager beer, brewed in the style favored by New York’s pre-Prohibition brewers. In the 1840’s, the pilsner style emerged from central Europe to become the world’s most popular style of beer. Like its ancesters, Brooklyn Pilsner is traditionally brewed from the finest European two-row barley malts. German-grown Perle and Hallertauer hops provide a crisp, snappy bitterness and fresh, floral aroma. We ferment Brooklyn Pilsner at cool temperatures and then give it a long, gentle maturation (lagering), which results in a beer of superior complexity and smoothness.

Pours a pale gold with 2 finger white head. Smells basic of malt and bit of hops. Tastes pretty good. Bitter and also malty. Light palate. Overall, it's not great but not offensive to drink. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Good classic pilsner. Golden color , medium white head. Aroma of malty and grassy. Grassy floral taste with moderate malty sweetness. Bittersweet , hoppy aftertaste. Refreshing and easy-drinkable.

From a bottle. Not a big fan of pilsners. This one has a bit more flavor and is quite good. I was surprised, a pilsner I can drink.

Light malty aroma and flavor, more body than a light beer. Dry finish with maybe slight barnyard funk to it. Full flavored, but not too complex. Enjoyable and drinkable, but I wouldn't seek it out. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12 oz bottle. Golden pour, nice head. ORange zest and herbs in the aroma, subtle malt sweetness. Flavor is heavy on toasted malt flavor, subtle earthy and grassy hops. Oddish yeast character

Reviewed from notes. Consumed May 4, 2012. The appearance has a clear yellow colored body with no head, no lacing, no rings in my pint glass. A fair amount of carbonation was seen rising slowly. The smell has some sweet grains with some malts and breads in the background. The taste has some malts and breads with the sweet grains in the background. Some floral tones came out in the taste. On the palate, she sits pretty light, comes across pretty sessionable and crisp, and the carbonation was definitely felt in my mouth. Overall, I guess its not a bad beer, but nothing to scream about. From what I’ve read of other reviews, I was hoping for a better appearance, but was let down a bit. I’d probably only seek this out again if I found it on tap.
