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.

Draught at the Brooklyn Brewery, Brooklyn, NY.</br> Golden fizz, not really that enjoyable. Fizzy, dry, with cheep bitter hopping.

Golden hue with fizzy large white head and some lace. The aroma is...well pils in nature, aromatic and grassy hops with a light citric and buttery tone. The taste is mild bitterness with a solid base of malts. Clean and crisp, easy to drink all day. One of the better American made pils I have had.

Pours yellow with a tall white head. Aroma is European hops, malt, and grass. The taste is more hops, grass and citrus fruit. I'd say lemon. Somewhat crisp mouthfeel and finish. There's better pilseners but this is pretty good and would be excellent and very refreshing on a hot summer day.

raymow (1304) - Bensalem, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 3, 2003
A rather nice pilsner. Typical pale yellow/golden color with thin white head and some lacing. Tastes slightly malty and hoppy with just a touch of sweetness in the finish. Very good.

Bottled. Tasted and looked like a pils. Nothing special.

This sharp, dry, crisp and hopsy pils went down easy! (perhaps too easy... but thats my fault for drankin' on an empty stomach!) Peanuty. Finely carbonated. Not fruity at all. Good-tasting (not Great, mind you) if not a bit unsurprising and bland! Gotta love their logo though!

A decent pils, although I could have used a little mory spicy hops. A little more malt flavor than I would have expected from the style.

It was ok, nothing special. At least it didn't have the nasty aftertaste that so many Brooklyn beers do.

Clear golden colour with a large dense white head. This is a Pils by appearance! Definate floral hop characteristic in the aroma with a light maltiness and a subtle sweetness. This one smells more like a Helles than a Pils. Light-Bodied; Strong malty flavour then masked by the hops. A decent amount of flavour, especially for the style. Aftertaste is more bland only showing a bit of each of the hops and malt. Overall, a good pilsner, no complaints, just not THAT special. I bought this twelve ounce bottle at Beers of the World in Rochester, New York.

UPDATED: OCT 30, 2003 Sweet aroma. Taste of soft floral hops with a mild dough finish. Crisp yet tasty, I usually don't enjoy pilsners that much but this one had enough flavor to make it enjoyable. Would make a good extended session beer.
