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.

malvrich (56) - durham, North Carolina, USA - JAN 25, 2015
A: Haystraw yellow with perhaps a bit of chill haze. Nice two finger rocky head with very good retention. Average to low carbonation swirling up. Good amount of lace left behind. S: Cracker malt and little else. T: A biting dryness up front. Crisp crackers again which I like. Earthy hop flavor on the finish. Good balance and overall a fairly distinctive flavor. Very good. M: Light to medium mouthfeel with a nice tingle from fine textured carbonation. O: Another nice pilsner to add to my stable of favorites. Maybe not in my top 3 of the style but one I will surely always go back to.

A nice clear, no haze, straw color. Clean crisp taste with hints of sweetness. Good dry finish that rolls off the palate. Head is a bright white and the aroma has notes of noble hops like a good pilsener should. Fantastic carbonation.

Brewfoolery (28) - 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.
