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.

Aroma wasn’t that bad, sweet a bit berry like. The taste was not true to its name. Lack of freshness, unpleasant, unbalanced. It was not sharp, crisp, hoppy nothing of that. If that is what people drink in Brooklyn I pity them.

Best before May 02. Light bready nose with a sour tinge. Rather sweet, metallic, and sort of dirty tasting. I think that this beer has suffered with age. Probably much better fresh, on tap, in Brooklyn.

I was again impressed by Brooklyn Brewery with this beer. Strong malt was dominant in the aroma. Appearance was very clear, I could have read a magazine through this beer. Sizeable white head that left some good lace. Flavor was also malty with only a hint of hop to clean the palate in the finish. A good beer.

Norton (329) - Southside, Richmond, Virginia, USA - DEC 6, 2002
A very very nice pilsener. Slightly weightier than most pilseners, but does not detract in my mind. Mild wheaty aftertaste stands out. Interesting mouthfeel - almost silky, but not in a basic way. Don’t see this much, but glad I was able to snarf one when I had the chance... in fact it became my ’beer of the rest of the night’ - @ Avalon - Richmond, VA. Absolutely will drink this one again.

Aurelius (4238) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - DEC 4, 2002
A nearly perfect pilsener. Balanced, balanced, balanced. Not sweet or overhopped. Excellent mouthfeel. Had this at John’s Pizza down by Times Square, and it was a real complement with the great pizza there. Or vice versa.

Didn’t really appreciate this pilsener, golden in color, nice soft white head, a little too strong on the hops, the hops definitely overpowered everything else in the flavors of this brew

Inveigler (371) - Ferndale, Michigan, USA - NOV 17, 2002
One of the best American interpretations of this style. A little maltier than a traditional German or Bohemian. But wonderful hop presence ... pleasant zest and tongue tingles. Thin and preeminately drinkable, this is the perfect summer beer.

CaptainCougar (7132) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - NOV 12, 2002
I’m not a big fan of pilsners, but this is a decent brew. Lots of Saaz hops in the aroma and palate, even some hints of apricot, with a slight spice finish on the tip of the tongue. Nicely balanced body with lots of flavor. One of my favorite pilsners.

Vac (2445) - San Diego, California, USA - OCT 9, 2002
The color is a pale gold topped with a medium thick white head. the aroma is malty, yet sour and bitter. the flavor is also sour and bitter with sweet undertones. Smooth going down. a relatively good version of a pilsner.
