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.

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.

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.

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.

Clear light amber/yellow in color. Slight head fades fast. Background German hops and malt. Nothing extraordinary.

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.

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.
