Review - Brooklyn Brewery's Pilsner
"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." -- Brooklyn Brewery
Pours a light yellow color with small, fizzy white head that quickly dissipates leaving soft lacing. Faint aroma doesn't provide much oomph, but what we did get up front was fruity which has since faded to a now non-distinct scent. The first taste gives us a moderate bitterness up front that provides grapefruit notes, slipping to a light bitter finish that leaves us dry with a moderate duration. Light bodied, it has the aforementioned dry texture with very light carbonation.
