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.

Not bad, part of the Brooklyn brewery tradition, but kinda soft. Not so graspy as most Pilsners but quite refreshing.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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...

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.

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.

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.
