Brooklyn, NY

Its a little late in the season for a Brooklyn Pilsner, but I am huge fan of their beers and could not resist when I saw it in the store - even if it was a warm on the shelf.

The Pilsner pours a deep golden color. Its not orange or copper, but a dark yellow with a nice head but a significant amount of haze. The aroma is mostly clean, with a slight hoppiness mixed with a faint touch of sulfur. Both the haze and the sulfur notes bely this beers age - the bottle is stamped good through January 2013, but cold storage would do it some favors.

Brooklyn Pilsner is a big bodied, hoppy example of the Pilsner style - inline with its Czech predecessors. You can taste the German hops - spicy, some perfume notes and a little oily. The body is full and crisp - this is no light beer. It finishes very clean, with no lingering bitterness.

Pilsner is one of my favorite beer styles, strong hop flavors combined with a full, crisp malt body and a clean finish. There's nowhere for a brewer to hide off flavors - no sweetness or over the top bitterness to hide poor craftsmanship or beer design. Brooklyn Pilsner is an outstanding example of what a good Pilsner should taste like.
