2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
on tap-a nice amber color to it a slight hoppy taste that finished with a mild spiciness to it.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
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)

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Noble hop aroma slightly buttery and nutty. Sticky malts. Semi sweet with a refreshingly bitter finish. Good pilsner.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Smooth, but burnt taste, possibly from the malt? Good crisp bitter taste, but a bit thin.
