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.

Smooth, but burnt taste, possibly from the malt? Good crisp bitter taste, but a bit thin.

A beautiful orange beer with a small head. The aroma is powerful; sweet and hoppy - really nice. The flavor disappoints a bit after the aroma - it's sweet with notes of orange and then turns slightly bitter - nice hops - but not enough bitterness. Even for the lack of balance - I think it's the best pilsener I've ever had.

OK balance of hops/malt aroma - a little bandaid. Small off-white head on a bright yellow-amber clear liquid. Medium carb and watery body. God hops flavor and malty character. Corn? A bit watery in flavor.

Has a light yellow color with medium cabonation and a slightly fruity smell. Taste crisp, hoppie and finish with a refreshing bitterness. Overall I like pilseners and this is a good example of one.

Pale blonde. A little bit fruity. Floral hops like other Brooklyn beers. I wish this was a little more bitter.

Aroma wasn’t that bad, sweet a bit berry like. The taste was not true to its name. Lack of freshness, unpleasant, unbalanced. It was not sharp, crisp, hoppy nothing of that. If that is what people drink in Brooklyn I pity them.

Best before May 02. Light bready nose with a sour tinge. Rather sweet, metallic, and sort of dirty tasting. I think that this beer has suffered with age. Probably much better fresh, on tap, in Brooklyn.

I was again impressed by Brooklyn Brewery with this beer. Strong malt was dominant in the aroma. Appearance was very clear, I could have read a magazine through this beer. Sizeable white head that left some good lace. Flavor was also malty with only a hint of hop to clean the palate in the finish. A good beer.

A very very nice pilsener. Slightly weightier than most pilseners, but does not detract in my mind. Mild wheaty aftertaste stands out. Interesting mouthfeel - almost silky, but not in a basic way. Don’t see this much, but glad I was able to snarf one when I had the chance... in fact it became my ’beer of the rest of the night’ - @ Avalon - Richmond, VA. Absolutely will drink this one again.
