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.

Overall, an excellent pilsner. Has wonderful Saazy aroma, but also *quite* malty. The most incredible thing is the full mouthfeel...practically creamy, as User_Ex points out.

Had in a bottle- but poured in an ale glass(all I had at the time). An ok pils. Golden straw color with a small head which fades quickly. I will try again with a traditional pilsner glass. Taste of spicy european hops and a smell like a traditional czech pilsner. Not my favorite but still good.

Very pale golden beer with apparent natural carbonation or at least it is definitely not overcarbonated. Holds a nice firm, creamy head. I poured this into a good conical pilsner glass and the beer looked very inviting. Faint aromas greet you before the first sip. Flavor is very balanced. Low hop character but everything about this beer works in harmony. This beer is probably one of the better pilsners available on the market. Certainly would not offend a drinker of ordinary domestic lagers and good enough to be enjoyed by even hard-core craft beer lovers. Very nice indeed.

Nice looking golden with thin creamy foam. Some light fruit and musty hop aromas. Bordering light to medium-light effervescence. Creamy, round feel. Very good.

Clear yellow. Decent head and lace. Nose of pale malts and subtle flowery/perfumy hops. Thin body, sweet malts throughout, a bit of corn syrup,somewhat crisp and spicy hop bite. Refreshing and quaffable but not a whole lot here. I have been spoiled by Prima I think.

This reminds me of an IPA and less of a pils because the saaz hop smell and taste is very subtle. Not really representative of its intended style. However, it’s a very drinkable beer. Could use a better head, though. Czechvar is better. Bitter, with a crisp hint of sourness.

On tap Boston Beer Summit ’02: It didn’t look or smell that great, but this pilsener came through at the end with a great crisp taste.

pretty nice version of this style of beer. It’s light, sweet, tany, with a very nice crisp finish, that slightly reminds me of an IPA.

very nice pils. clean malt flavor with a sharp saaz hop bite. the hops lend a hint of spices and fruit. As good as most european pilsners.
