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.

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.

raymow (1514) - Bensalem, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 3, 2003
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.

Bottled. Tasted and looked like a pils. Nothing special.

This sharp, dry, crisp and hopsy pils went down easy! (perhaps too easy... but thats my fault for drankin' on an empty stomach!) Peanuty. Finely carbonated. Not fruity at all. Good-tasting (not Great, mind you) if not a bit unsurprising and bland! Gotta love their logo though!

A decent pils, although I could have used a little mory spicy hops. A little more malt flavor than I would have expected from the style.

It was ok, nothing special. At least it didn't have the nasty aftertaste that so many Brooklyn beers do.

Clear golden colour with a large dense white head. This is a Pils by appearance! Definate floral hop characteristic in the aroma with a light maltiness and a subtle sweetness. This one smells more like a Helles than a Pils. Light-Bodied; Strong malty flavour then masked by the hops. A decent amount of flavour, especially for the style. Aftertaste is more bland only showing a bit of each of the hops and malt. Overall, a good pilsner, no complaints, just not THAT special. I bought this twelve ounce bottle at Beers of the World in Rochester, New York.

UPDATED: OCT 30, 2003 Sweet aroma. Taste of soft floral hops with a mild dough finish. Crisp yet tasty, I usually don't enjoy pilsners that much but this one had enough flavor to make it enjoyable. Would make a good extended session beer.

On tap at the art of beer festival Stammtisch. Watery lightly golden color. Slightly citrusy-lemony aroma and flavor, lightly hopped. Overall plain and boring.

Ubiquibeer (140) - Cleveland, USA - OCT 3, 2003
Pours a standard golden pils color, with a lasting head. Crisp malty aroma. Taste sweet malt, with some earthy hops. I would characterize this as an American Pils; nice brew, but I just don't consider this a great example of a European pils. I consider Prima pils the quintessential American Pils--this is not at that level but it is a very drinkable beer, though. An example of a pils on the same level of this would be Goose Island Pils.
