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.

12 oz bottle from 2004. Pours a thick yellow, clear, but not pale or thin looking. Decent white head, and a mix of sweet honey and almonds with crisp floral hops. Flavor begins slowly of light malt, sweet and a bit thin, but then some sour yeast notes come in and it eventually finishes very crisp and clean. No adjuncts, no skunkiness, just a drinkable, well-made lager. Dosent have the aroma of the Bohemian pilsners, but still has a good hops flavor, though could use some more flavor altogether.

12 oz bottle, from Glenville Beverage in Scotia, NY. Perfect light golden, quite clear, giant frothy lasting head. Decent earthy/grassy hop nose, pleasant but unremarkable...a bit too smooth. Palate similarly smooth, quite tasty but without any really strong character. Bit of nice sourish-bitterish quality at the end, but it’s not strong enough to really matter. Ehh.

This is not bad either, not a favorite by any means, but the hop flkavor is definitely there as well as a little bit of nice floral aromas, some light acidity, the taste is very crisp and clean. This would be a great baseball game beer.

(draught) Pale gold with white head. Faint malt nose. Crisp pilsner flavorr with a hint of floral hops. A good pilsner in the European style.

Brooklyn. Great place. Some great beer. This was okay. Pours pale yellow with a foamy white head. Malty, floral to the nose. Light on flavor. A good drink on a hot day with food but doesn't stand well alone.

Clear, golden body with a thin, lace-producing white head. Fairly malty with a light hop kick at the end. The body is light, dry and refreshing. Not as much hop or malt character as the Lager and that would have to be the downfall of this beer. Otherwise, this is another tasty beer from Brooklyn.

Had on my holiday to New York. Usual pils appearance. Light floral hoppy aroma. APA like taste a lot of citrus and flora, very hoppy and very different to European pils.

Nothing terribly memorable about this beer, but it is decent and drinkable. Refreshing, which is more than i can say for a lot beers i end up drinking in warm weather. There are are several flavors combining to give it a complicated, yet clean flavor.

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.

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.
