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 yellow. Has a light aroma like any average pilsner. Taste is unique - watery but still has a light pilsner flavor. Watered down taste comes in fast and stays for an after taste.

TheBeerCollector (633) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - JUL 20, 2013
Pours a hazy golden copper with a short lived head. Aroma is sweetly floral. Well balanced flavor is a little watery and thin. Refreshing but not memorable.

Believe it or not, at one time this was one of the better Pilsners. Wasn’t able to find it much in my area. My local Canals just started carrying it. I guess Brooklyn upped its yield but lowered the quality for more distribution. What a shame.

Frothmeister (544) - Ontario, CANADA - JUN 23, 2013
12 fluid ounce bottle. Slightly hazy pale gold with an off-white head. Aromas are minimal. Faint grapefruit, herbal notes, and caramel. All very light. The taste is light citrus, tangy hops, light malt notes, Euro-style hops in the finish with a light bready note. Nothing special, but not bad either.

BeerKurve (481) - - JUN 12, 2013
UPDATED: JUN 13, 2013 Clear yellow straw color with high carbonation and a soapy head with good retention and lacing. Aroma of lemon zest, yeasts, pale malts, barley and grassiness. Flavor is surprisingly malt forward, with some floral hops, lemon zest and yeasts. Aftertaste is resiny and a bit grassy. Body is light and so is the carbonation but it does feel a bit watery. A Solid Pilsner overall

Pours a straw yellow with a nice white head. Aromas of corn, grain, and mown grass. A refreshing pilsner that has good bitterness and lacks a bit in finish. Nice carbonation and lightness. No prima pils though.

Great crispy malts and hops - nice nose that has some faint floral tones and a nice dash of citrus. Very refreshing beer.

queenholly (2827) - South Whitley, Indiana, USA - MAY 19, 2013
Bottle sample at Beoir Go Leoir. Very light fruity malt aroma. Clear yellow gold with a small white head. Fruity bready malt and light grass flavor. Light body, soft carbonation.

Block (1319) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - MAY 8, 2013
Yellow pour, thin white head. Aroma is sweet, corn, grass, wheat. Flavor is sweet as well. Light but not very refreshing. Not lingering flavors.

5000 (6180) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - MAY 3, 2013
Bottle:   Straw, slightly hazy, moderate frothy white head, spotty lacing.   Grassy nose, very faint fruity and floral aspects.   Fairly clean, a bit bright on the tongue.   Less mealy than many other examples, mainly European ones, which is nice.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Clean grassy finish.   This one was fairly crisp, had a slight sweet grassiness, and was very clean.   An absolutely great summer Pils IMO.
