Pours a straw yellow. Light head. I couldn’t get any scent out of this at all. Taste was standard pilsner. Not unpleasant, just nothing that sticks out. Move along folks...

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: MAY 8, 2013
Pale gold colour; Razor thin head and white foam which fades in 20 seconds; Small but sticky lacing with very active and lasting carbonation, close to fizzy; Light but fragrant aroma of light honey, lemon, light sweet malt and orange; Nice and light sweet taste of orange peel, malt, bitter lime and grass; Mid to Light body, slick palate. Taste profile is dominated by initial light orange / citrus and floral followed by expressive malt, and finishes with strong, lingering and pleasing mid-hop bitterness; Dry after taste, very crisp and easy to mouth.
Comments: this is a very well-made pilsenser. Its taste is very close to Rothaus Pils with that distinctive, grassy hoppiness - bitter, penetrating yet pleasant. With underwhelming head and aroma aside, everything else works out nicely. After having its EIPA, Lager and now this, this brand really grows on me. Highly recommended!

Had this on a cold winters night, much better than most Macro Pilsners. It would be nice to try this on a summers day, I imagine it would be nice.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Mild, mostly malty aroma with a little flowery and grassy hops. Flavor starts smooth and mild, with some spicy, grassy hops in the finish. Nothing spectacular here, but still pretty good.

I would have expected more from the Brooklyn Brewery, but this one left me quite disappointed. Bland, boring, and a letdown.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 ounce bottle into pilsener glass, best before March 2013. Pours lightly hazy golden straw color with a nice 2 finger dense white head with fantastic retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a nice amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of lemon zest, pear, pepper, apple, cracker, bread, earth, floral, grass, and herbal spiciness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity; but are quite mild. Taste of lemon zest, pear, pepper, apple, cracker, bread, earth, floral, grass, light pine, and herbal spiciness. Light grassy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of light fruit, pepper, cracker, bread, grass, floral, light pine, and herbal spiciness on the finish for a short bit. Nice flavor complexity and balance of malt and hop flavors; quite dry on the finish; with zero cloying flavors present on the finish as expected. Medium-high carbonation and medium bodied; with a very smooth, crisp, and lightly prickly mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with nearly zero warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is a very nice pilsner style. Well balanced with nice complexity; very smooth a crisp to drink. Very enjoyable and well put together.
