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.

DrSilverworm (7213) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 30, 2013
12oz bottle, picked up today from Party Source. Best by Feb-28-2014. Mostly clear golden orange color. Thin white head. Couple dots and short ropes of lace. Minimal head overall. A lot of old, musty hop aroma in the front. Not the good kind of hop, nor the expected pilsnery peppery type of hop, just big musty basementy dusty hop aroma. Caramel malt, and light toffee. Moderate sweet taste, light bitter. Medium body. Sort of slick. Lighter, kind of crisp carbonation. Quite a bit worse and much less quaffable than expected.

"Very pale golden brown body that looks mildly hazy in my glass a modest sized head was produced but was gone after a minute or two a small skiff remained that was constantly replenished with good carbonation bubbling to the top.

Basic beer. Pedestrian. A little malty with lots of bitterness. A little chemicalness in the finish that I did not like.

Funknmilla (727) - Wayne, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 12, 2013
12 oz bottle...straw pour with an off-white head...nothing fancy here...a simple pilsner...a decent easy going pilsner...average in all ways...a smidge of lacing...its a little sour at first, but that lessens as it warms up

dwyerpg (4686) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - OCT 18, 2013
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.

EddyBeer1 (949) - Brussels, BELGIUM - OCT 14, 2013
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.

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