COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brooklyn Pilsner is a refreshing golden lager beer, brewed in the style favored by New Yorks pre-Prohibition brewers. In the 1840s, the pilsner style emerged from central Europe to become the worlds 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.

OK, not the best pils I have had, but a damn good one. Pretty light colored, nice head, clear crisp taste with a bit of funkyness.

SpringsLicker (3480) - Tennessee, USA - FEB 8, 2004
Rich yellow beer supporting a white head as one would expect for a Pilsner. Slight hop bitterness and crisp finish make this a drinkable Pilsner.

Ernest (7438) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - FEB 5, 2004
Head is initially small, frothy, white, mostly diminishing. Body is medium yellow. Aroma is lightly malty (toasted bread), moderately hoppy (herbs, flowers). Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation, slightly metallic. Very authentic...not exciting, but in a blind test I wouldn't be able to tell this from an average German-made pils. There are better examples, but I like it when American brewers don't screw up a style like this with high-alpha hops and so forth.

Yankovitch333 (612) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - JAN 31, 2004
Pale gold with a thick white head. Aroma is mildly sweet. A little malty with a touch of hops. Not bad for a pilsener. My sister gave me 20 bucks and sent me down the street for beer. I had to buy something I thought she'd like. I also came back with a bomber of Ballantine. Sometimes I just can't help myself.

on tap at bowery ball room: probably the astmosphere had something to do with it and i was on vacation. but i enjoyed about 5 (plastic cups) of the beer. golden in color and hoppy nose, not too overbearing with the hops and a descent bitter finish. all in all good, would like to try again to see if it tastes the same.

LordNeuf (136) - Acton, Massachusetts, USA - JAN 16, 2004
Typical Pilsner, a nose slightly sweet and citrus. Clean taste and crisp finish. Nice but nothing exceptional

Draught at the Brooklyn Brewery, Brooklyn, NY.</br> Golden fizz, not really that enjoyable. Fizzy, dry, with cheep bitter hopping.

BBB63 (6557) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - JAN 6, 2004
Golden hue with fizzy large white head and some lace. The aroma is...well pils in nature, aromatic and grassy hops with a light citric and buttery tone. The taste is mild bitterness with a solid base of malts. Clean and crisp, easy to drink all day. One of the better American made pils I have had.

TheBeerGod (6066) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - DEC 29, 2003
Pours yellow with a tall white head. Aroma is European hops, malt, and grass. The taste is more hops, grass and citrus fruit. I'd say lemon. Somewhat crisp mouthfeel and finish. There's better pilseners but this is pretty good and would be excellent and very refreshing on a hot summer day.

A rather nice pilsner. Typical pale yellow/golden color with thin white head and some lacing. Tastes slightly malty and hoppy with just a touch of sweetness in the finish. Very good.
