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.

Clear yellow pour, creamy white diminishing head, very minimal lacing, light to medium body, straw and grain, wheat, a bit metallic/skunk, not much too it, crisp, good is hot and thirsty and hot, bit of a sour aftertaste, not my style but good comparatively, tastes like other Brooklyn Brewery brew and this style suits the inherent taste, not bad for whatn it is

Vestlake (236) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - AUG 7, 2015
Bottle pour. Pours a yellow color with a minimal head. Pretty good Pilsner. Not quite as good as the German and Czech pilsners, but I would try again.

Coloração dourada,baixa formação de espuma,média carbonatação,líquido ligeiramente turvo,aroma maltado,mas,já se nota um leve cítrico do lúpulo,no sabor esse equilíbrio se inverte com o lúpulo mostrando sua força com seu amargor,álcool é notado;refrescante,boa drinkability,bom custo benefício como praticamente todas Brooklyn,boa breja.

jkwood04 (4814) - Connecticut, USA - JUL 10, 2015
12oz bottle. Looks light. Aroma of pale malts, floral hops, and some dough. Flavor the same. Average texture. A standard pilsner but nothing exceptional.

trapped (1428) - New York, TURKEY - JUL 7, 2015
Bottle. Pale yellow with small foamy white head, little hops aroma, high carbonation, slightly bitter watery taste, abrupt finish. Smooth but not as crisp as better Pilsners.

BrewMaster0912 (49) - Marysville, Ohio, USA - JUL 4, 2015
Pours a cloudy golden amber color with a light head. The aroma is a malt smell, you can smell the barley in it. The taste is a typical pilsner taste but a little better than the average one, leave a bit of a dry aftertaste. Overall beer is ok but not the best.

skmikeg (1359) - Cherry Hill, New Jersey, USA - JUN 27, 2015
Pour golden yellow with a thin soapy white head which fades to a little lacing. Aroma is of pils malts, biscuit malts, floral hops, grassy hops, light pine, and some light spicy hops. Taste is pils malts, bready biscuit malts, grassy hops, herbal hops, spicy hops, and light pine. Has a medium-light body with a slightly watery mouthfeel and a semi bitter, semi dry, medium finish. Overall, a pretty tasty pils that is both refreshing and drinkable.

Underdogs88 (261) - New Jersey, USA - MAY 22, 2015
Floral, spicy aroma with notes of pils malt. Appearance is light gold with a white head. Flavor is crisp a slight malt sweetness from the pils malt. Hop flavor is spicy with notes of flowers. Mouthfeel is medium light. Overall, I'd prefer more hop aroma and flavor. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

willisread (937) - Tokyo, JAPAN - MAY 22, 2015
Old rating. Bottle from Old Town. Clear straw color with a nice white head. Grassy nose with some faint biscuit and grain that come through. A touch of citrus as well in the nose. Taste is clean, crisp and refreshing. Great carbonation and mouthfeel for the style. A solid pilsner.

bavarian81 (111) - Massachusetts, USA - APR 22, 2015
Aroma is a nice blend of tartness, grass, and light bread. Deep, clear gold color with plenty of carbonation. It has mostly a soft mouth feel and very crisp. Taste has a nice sweet malt/bitter hop balance. This is one of the better pilsners I’ve had.
