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.

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.

A nearly perfect pilsener. Balanced, balanced, balanced. Not sweet or overhopped. Excellent mouthfeel. Had this at John’s Pizza down by Times Square, and it was a real complement with the great pizza there. Or vice versa.

Didn’t really appreciate this pilsener, golden in color, nice soft white head, a little too strong on the hops, the hops definitely overpowered everything else in the flavors of this brew

One of the best American interpretations of this style. A little maltier than a traditional German or Bohemian. But wonderful hop presence ... pleasant zest and tongue tingles. Thin and preeminately drinkable, this is the perfect summer beer.

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!
