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.

Bottle, best by October 2014.
Appearance: The body is clear with a golden amber hue, the head is short but hides the body from the top for a while with a white hue.
Aroma: The aroma is strong in presence from the hops which are providing a slight sweet gummy aroma, a touch of spiciness, an herbal presence and a whiff of skunk. As it sits for a second it becomes a bit medicinal and cloying.
Taste: A bit sweet with a firm bitterness towards the end. A slight astringency is noted towards the end. There is an herbal sort of medicinal almost tongue numbing feeling and flavor that lingers. A slight skunkiness shows up but it’s subdued.
Palate: Full-bodied, low to moderately carbonated. Not as crisp as I like.
Overall: There’s something odd about this that isn’t meshing with my palate in the flavor and aroma department. I would also like a little more crispness to this. It’s not bad, but it’s a hard sell next to Victory or Sly Fox.

Pours light honey color, with a small foamy head. Aroma is light hops, not much otherwise. Smells is a bit stronger and more pleasant than Heineken. Taste is crisp, refreshing. Light, but not as light as some other lagers, yeasty. Medium carbonation. Overall good for a pilsener, but I wouldn’t drink this if it wasn’t summertime.

kramer (4866) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 29, 2014
Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy yellow gold body under a one finger fizzy white head that had really nice retention. The nose is mostly bready pale malt with just a bit of floral hops. The flavor isn’t quite as clean as I was hoping for, the hops are pretty lacking for my tastes. The malt has a bit of a bland cereal grain taste to it. It just doesn’t quite taste as well lagered as I would expect, the finish isn’t very crisp at all. The minimal bitterness level doesn’t do anything to help the situation either. Light bodied and a little clingy with soft fizzy carbonation. Not up my alley as far as Pilseners go.

The body has a bright golden color with very good clarity and some nice streams of fine carbonation rushing to the head. The head builds up tall and fluffy. It is bright white in color, has good retention and makes some lacing on the glass. Its aroma has a light biscuity malt presence with some floral hops. The flavor is very clean, crisp and very well balanced. A subtle biscuity malt mixes with a mild floral and almost fruity hops. The hops bring a pleasant bitterness and dry crispness to the finish. It has a smooth light texture with just enough carbonation to match its light to medium body.

Pours a pale gold with 2 finger white head. Smells basic of malt and bit of hops. Tastes pretty good. Bitter and also malty. Light palate. Overall, it's not great but not offensive to drink. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Good classic pilsner. Golden color , medium white head. Aroma of malty and grassy. Grassy floral taste with moderate malty sweetness. Bittersweet , hoppy aftertaste. Refreshing and easy-drinkable.

From a bottle. Not a big fan of pilsners. This one has a bit more flavor and is quite good. I was surprised, a pilsner I can drink.
