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.

355ml bottle from deli in New York. Grassy straw like aroma, thin bodied but overall not too bad.

This smells and looks fine. Te flavor is light and crisp, but the best part of this beer is the finish, which is crisp, dry and some hops. Very nice.

Cadeau ramené de NY. Blonde claire, effervescence moyenne, petite mousse tombe rapidement. Malts caramel présents suivis par une gentille amertume, un peu sèche. Une bonne pils, sans plus!

Bottle at home. Pours clear gold with a medium, frothy white head, short retention with light lacing. Aroma is Pils malt and spicy, earthy Noble hops. Flavor is moderate hops and bitterness with crisp malt and a dry finish. Light body and moderate carbonation.

Nekronos (3646) - Xalapa, MEXICO - OCT 4, 2013
Not bad, part of the Brooklyn brewery tradition, but kinda soft. Not so graspy as most Pilsners but quite refreshing.

Crisp, clean, floral and spicy hop flavours. The pour is a bland golden colour with a sprizty carbonation and a thick two finger head. The nose is mild but well balanced with grassy and spiced hops notes as well as hitn of toasted bread. Sweet, grainy flavours with a nice hop forward flavour. Overall a great pils.

Part of a mixer 12-pack, gotta love those mixers! Great looking, monster head that lasted and eventually settled to about a quarter inch of dense white foam, leaving super sticky lacing all over the glass, Aroma is grainy, with a touch of hoppiness. Typically pilsner. Flavor is nice, it’s lightly sweet but bitterness is a bit stronger, a nice hoppiness and a strong grainy malt backbone. Flavorful by pilsner standards, but quite on the money. Seems almost medium bodied, not at all watery, yet still refreshing, leaving a lingering hop bitterness. Overall it’s quite tasty. If I could find it regularly I’d buy it regularly.

DATE TASTED: August 16, 2013 ... GLASSWARE: Paulaner pokal... OCCASION: Strat-O-Matic football cards arrive... APPEARANCE: tawny straw-golden body that supports a confident white froth; lacing is thick with rings; effervescence is steady... AROMA: pleasant floral fragrance with bananas and clove--a flavorful combination...PALATE: smooth, medium-bodied with a palpable aftertaste; the balance is striking ...TASTE: lightly malty, slightly hoppy--the airy scents translate to a lagerish depth and strength... OVERALL: mellow, predictable pilsner--but a compliment, considering the pilsner profile as a whole; as a player in the Brooklyn sampler, the pilsner holds up well...

S_Side_Smitty (488) - Lakeland, Florida, USA - JUL 20, 2013
Pours light yellow with a minimal white head. Aroma is grainy pilsener malts with a little citrus rind. Taste is actually a nice balance of light grains and light pine with a long, smooth, bitter finish.
