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.

Great beer. Brooklyn wins again, though this is probably not even their finest beer. I admit, I’m biased. Pilsners are my choice, but still a winner regardless.

This is the best American Pilsner I’ve ever had, bar none. I used to reserve Trumer for that designation, but Brooklyn has usurped the throne. Hoppy, refreshing, with a smooth finish all the way down. Perfect on a cool spring evening with a homemade veggie pizza!

UPDATED: NOV 9, 2007 Miller Lite labels say "True pilsner taste," not to bitch like a beer snob about major brand beers but I shall. "True pilsner taste" sounds like "real cheese flavor"; it may be made out of old Chinese newspapers, but the flavor is certainly real! Well, Brooklyn’s attempt at the classic pilsner style is a winner! Nice golden color with a white head and a lively carbonation; low hop character but everything about this beer works in harmony; reminds me of beer you can buy a keg of down the shore, while not disappointing anyone!

Very pale golden beer with apparent natural carbonation or at least it is definitely not overcarbonated. Holds a nice firm, creamy head. I poured this into a good conical pilsner glass and the beer looked very inviting. Faint aromas greet you before the first sip. Flavor is very balanced. Low hop character but everything about this beer works in harmony. This beer is probably one of the better pilsners available on the market. Certainly would not offend a drinker of ordinary domestic lagers and good enough to be enjoyed by even hard-core craft beer lovers. Very nice indeed.

Pours to a brilliant, golden color, with a bright white head, and a lively carbonation. The nose on this beer is excellent with lots of good, crisp pilsner malt aroma, paired with as the brewery says "snappy" herbal/grassy hop aroma. The palate is firm, with good pilsner malt flavor, on a round and clean body. This beer finishes with more crisp and clean pale malt flavor up front, then ends with a pleasing, "snappy", grassy hop bite that lingers. Excellent domestic version of pilsner, with a really good balance of malt character and hop character. Fire up the grill, throw on some burgers and brats, and enjoy.

Pours a light yellow with active carbonation and a adequate head. Aroma is of malt and straw. Taste is crisp clean and refreshing. A great balance of malt sweetness with a bit of honey overtones offset by just enough hops to keep it interesting. Say goodbye to miller lite!

Kinz (3251) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - APR 9, 2006
Medium gold, nice initial head fades away, some lacing left behind. Pretty. Pleasant aroma of grass, hay, flowers, and anise. A light sweet pale malt backbone is very nicely balanced by fresh, floral hops, with a spicy, bitter finish. This is a really nicely done beer, suffering from a bias against lagers in the ratings. Wonderful stuff.

Nice golden straw color, thin white head that laves nice brussels lace down the glass, big sazz boquet, sazz flavor all the way on a medium to light mouth feel, a touch of malt before the very dry finish. If you don’t like this beer, you don’t like pilsners.

On tap at Chadwick’s in Old Town Alexandria, VA. Clear golden color with no head (by the time the server got it to our table). Soft floral aroma followed by warm malty bready-ness. Front palate of mild hops with abundant malt in the middle and mild floral in the finish - like an orange blossom. Very smooth. The kind of beer you could sit around and drink pint after pint of on a hot, humid VA afternoon, and not too bad with a Cobb Salad, either.
