Starting a new beer tab, we are going to get into another brew from Brooklyn Brewery and the beer is Brooklyn Pilsner. If you read my earlier blog on one of their other beers, you are pretty up to speed on this brewery. Let us get into the beer.
Brooklyn Pilsner is part of their everyday beers. It has a clear golden color with constant white head and bubbles. There is really no smell to the beer. The taste is a dry slight carbonated to it with crisp finish. Just like all Brooklyn beers, it has that classic European style to it. This pilsner is extremely drinkable and perfect for anytime of the year.
Here is a description from the beer bottle:
Brooklyn Pilsner is a pale refreshing lager, brewed in the style flavored by New York’s pre-Prohibition German-American brewers. Brooklyn Pilsner tastes best before the freshness date indicated. Please write us or visit the brewery Saturdays noon to 5pm. 79 N 11th Street, Brooklyn, NY 11211, or visit our website at www.brookynbrewery.com.
Here is a description from their website (www.brooklynbrewery.com):
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 ancestors, Brooklyn Pilsner is traditionally brewed from the finest German two-row barley malts. Germangrown Perle and Hallertauer hops provide a crisp, snappy bitterness and fresh, floral aroma. The flavor of the malt comes through in the finish. 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. We believe that you will find there to be none finer. Unlike mass-marketed so-called pilsners, Brooklyn Pilsner does not contain cheap fillers such as corn or rice, nor does it contain any preservatives or stabilizers. Brooklyn Pilsner is the real thing.

Closing out the tab, I have really been enjoying Brooklyn beers. This beer style is slowly becoming one of my favorite beer styles. I really love the clean crisp finish and the medium body. It has a ton of flavor and perfect for any season from the Summer to Winter. If you love pilsners, this is one beer you need to try a few times. Go get some! Drink it! Enjoy it! Metal it! \m/
