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.

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.

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.

Golden straw hue. Creamy white head dissipates quickly. Fruity hearty aroma. Light bitterness is excellent. Sourness kinda throws me off, and I kinda dont like this brew. Yet it really isnt a bad pilsner.

tastes EXACTLY like a new shoe smells...while i love that in a shoe..i dont think it was really meant for a beer. also, this is quite sweet for a "typical" pilsner. not a great example of the style in my opinion, but not a bad beer either...i detect a bot of hop presence in the aftertaste.

This beer has a crisp fresh smell, just as the description says. This had more malt than I am used to in a pilsner, however it worked well with the hops. The hops were really evident in the finish. I liked this pilsner very much!

I tasted a very fresh sample of this Pilsner, which I have heard has been reformulated to be drier and have a bigger hop flavor. I was terribly disappointed and overwhelmed by a strong butter flavor that ruined the beer for me. I certainly hope that I just got a bad one, for I deeply appreciate this brewery’s efforts with their Lager and Brown Ale and truly enjoyed their earlier versions of the Pilsner.

I am agreement with the other raters in that this is a very full beer. There is no watery-thin blandness in this pils. To me it has a very woody, earthy characteristic going on. Hops are understated, but there is also a kind of small yeasty taste going on, which was very unexpected, but quite nice.

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.
