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.

On tap. Didn't like this as much as the last time I had it last year. I got a strong honey flavor from this, smooth, thin. Needs more hops to be a better pilsener. Go for the Brooklyn lager instead.

jskendzel (602) - Washington DC, USA - JUL 9, 2003
Clear light amber/yellow in color. Slight head fades fast. Background German hops and malt. Nothing extraordinary.

crazyvin (2026) - New York, USA - JUN 7, 2003
on tap-a nice amber color to it a slight hoppy taste that finished with a mild spiciness to it.

Nuffield (3771) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - JUN 3, 2003
Everything to be expected--color, some clinging head. Mildy aroma to the extent that water has an aroma. But the palate is held up with a certain fizziness and there are certainly worse pilsners out there. (on tap, Brooklyn Brewery)

I love this brewery, but their pils, while decent enough, does not compare with their other offerings. Pours nicely with a fine white head and enough flowers in the bouquet to keep you interested. It is smooth, bordering on watery. Not enough hoppy snap for a great pils.

Prostman (1077) - Pennsylvania, USA - APR 27, 2003
Nice crisp body combined with the old style of beer from New York before Prohibition, this is a great beer to kick back and relax with.

argo0 (11962) - Washington DC, USA - APR 3, 2003
UPDATED: JUL 1, 2004 Clear golden body with small off-white head. Aroma is light German hops with faint sweetness. Taste isn't very strong -- light-medium German-hop bitterness with just a hint of sweetness. Crisp. Nice session beer.

baobubba (455) - Starkville, Mississippi, USA - MAR 24, 2003
Noble hop aroma slightly buttery and nutty. Sticky malts. Semi sweet with a refreshingly bitter finish. Good pilsner.

TAR (2518) - Lafayette, Colorado, USA - MAR 21, 2003
Light pear shade. Retentive pad of rocky, white foam. Pleasant aroma of cotton candy, spicy Hallertauer, apple, light toastiness, trace of lemon, and burnt sugar. Mushy, soft, and jellyish palate. Balanced flavors of green hop and champagnesque toasted pale maltiness. Light traces of sour apple and acidity, and a dab of artificial sweetener. A well balanced pilsner, but overly simplistic.

ConiseurofBeer (242) - Downingtown, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 11, 2003
Thin head, fruity aroma, slightly lacking in the taste department. Very slight hops flavor. Not much else
