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.

Pours a boring gold with a boring white head. Smells very boring, kinda like dirty pocket change mixed with cat urine, then watered down. The taste is decent, but rather boring. A blend of herbal and crisp hops match the lager smoothness and malt well, but seem pretty boring to me. The mouthfeel is, well boring. Overall, not a terrible brew, just BORING.

Brewfoolery (26) - California, USA - DEC 24, 2014
Appearance poured from bottle is golden yellow. Head is firm and white with persistence and lacing. Initial aroma brings noble hops with spicy vegetal nose that opens to Pils sweetness with temperature rise. Light carbonated mouthfeel that has Pils sweetness balanced by lingering hop bitterness. After taste is clean and all bitter, not sweet.

tricyclist (858) - Florida, USA - NOV 12, 2014
Really a pleasant pilsner. Bright pour with a nice full proper head. Nose is mild hop, citrus and grass, with a clean malt. Flavor is clean bright citrus and not too bitter hops paired with moderate malt... Clean, crisp, and enjoyable.

EithCubes (5090) - New Jersey, USA - SEP 1, 2014
Bottle BB OCT 2014. Nose is caramel, lightly spicy with earth and toffee, little bit of must/body odor. Pale yellow with what looks like a little chill haze, a soapy bright white head, and an overabundance of fast carbonation. Watery light body with dry, papery bitterness, dry on the whole except for light juicy sweetness from the hops. Tons of lemony citrus, good and authentic noble hop extraction, very faint spice with cleansing properties on the side. Fresh and relatively clean, but not crisp despite the carbonation, and the metallic/chalky undertones in the far bg start to wear. A good one for volume drinking in the summer, as the pleasant bitterness doesn’t add up too quickly and there’s really no sign of alcohol.

JHeath99 (1166) - Warner Robins, Georgia, USA - AUG 19, 2014
Tap at Lazy Dog. Pours a transparent golden with a layer of creamy head. Taste and aroma of malts, missing that crispness I like in pils.

floydslip (202) - Washington DC, USA - AUG 12, 2014
Golden beer with a foamy bright white head. Pretty mild nose of grassy hops, slight citrus, and a bit of wax. Flavor is quite a bit brighter with some pleasant fruit, like tangerine and lemon, followed by a mild bitterness without the funk of most pilseners. The finish is somewhat short, but smooth. This is a good, crisp beer that certainly quenches my thirst.

Transfer from BA review on 10-24-12- Poured from bottle into pint glass Appearance – Pours a medium golden color with a two finger white head. The head last for ~ 3 min before fading as the big bubbles pop to give a lighter level of lacing. Smell – The aroma is malty and bready with some lighter notes of a caramel sweetness. With these aromas are some lighter herbal and citrus hop aromas as well. Taste – The taste begins bready with a very small amount of sweetness. The sweetness is lost quite rapidly with some bitter earthy hop flavors coming to the tongue. A light citrus flavor then develops at the end and when combined with the earthy hop, it leaves a bitter and dry malt flavor on the tongue. Mouthfeel – The body was rather thin in nature with a carbonation level that is slightly above normal. Both are quite nice for the drier style and make for one very easy drinking and refreshing brew. Overall – Not a bad brew. It was rather lacking in some of its flavors and transitions, but it is quite refreshing.
