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.

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.

On tap at the art of beer festival Stammtisch. Watery lightly golden color. Slightly citrusy-lemony aroma and flavor, lightly hopped. Overall plain and boring.

Ubiquibeer (140) - Cleveland, USA - OCT 3, 2003
Pours a standard golden pils color, with a lasting head. Crisp malty aroma. Taste sweet malt, with some earthy hops. I would characterize this as an American Pils; nice brew, but I just don't consider this a great example of a European pils. I consider Prima pils the quintessential American Pils--this is not at that level but it is a very drinkable beer, though. An example of a pils on the same level of this would be Goose Island Pils.

A refreshing Pilsner. Nothing complex, just a crisp Pils with a dry slightly hopped finish.

egajdzis (5952) - Pennsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 21, 2003
Poured a slightly dark golden color with a medium sized head and some lacing. Slightly fruity, yeasty, almost hoppy aroma. Diactyl is certainly present in the aroma as well. Slightly malty, crisp, slight hop bite at the end. An average pilsener.

MaiBockAddict (1497) - Good Beer Bar Deprived, New Jersey, USA - SEP 7, 2003
I expect more coming from one of the most hyped brewers in the country. Aroma not as clean as I like, with Diactyl/DMS notes a little high.Malt/hop balance is ok, but a little DMS is noted in the flavor. Overall, not bad, but have had better.

hopscotch (10532) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - SEP 6, 2003
Slightly hazy, straw-colored lager. Large, frothy, white head with weeping lacework. Bold nose for a pilsener! Biscquits and chicken broth; light butterscotch and a bit floral. A touch on the sweet side up front with a burst of clover honey and corn. Balanced by lightly bitter and tangy hops on the backside. Light-bodied with a silky mouthfeel and lively carbonation. Slightly sweet finish.

beerguy101 (5354) - Newark, California, USA - SEP 4, 2003
Orange gold color. Small white foamy quickly disappearing head. Aroma is grainy, grassy, fruity and sweet. A medium bodied pilsner. Malts are fruity and slightly sweet. Hops are very spicy for a pilsner. Very nicely balanced, Clean and crisp. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is a touch dry and clean. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

Uglyradio (791) - Greenville, South Carolina, USA - SEP 3, 2003
It has a nice, orange golden color with a thin, fizzy white head. The head dissipates within a minute, leaving some bubbles and a thin ring. It has a nice pilsner aroma of malts and hops with some grass and hay notes. Light body with mild carbonation and a crisp mouthfeel. The flavor is good and hoppy, with a long finish and final hop burst at the very end. Not my favorite pilsner, but definitely tasty and refreshing.

Cobra (1100) - - AUG 9, 2003
A true 3 beer if ever there was one. 12 oz. brown bottle. Best before September 2003. Poured out an orangish color, with not much head to speak of. The head faded to a curtain of lacing on top of the beer. Aromas are very subdued, not very prevalent in any manner. Slight vegetable aroma, they must use corn as an adjunct in this beer. Either that, or it is already past it's prime. Tasted ok, but nothing to write home about. Underhopped in my opinion.
