Brooklyn Brewery is a very well respected brand in the craft beer industry.
Sadly, when I had their excellent Sorachi Ace very early in my journey so there was no chance I could appreciate it at the time.
Now that I've got a lil 'sperience under my belt, I can really enjoy my Brooklyn beers.
I had this at a dinner party a few months ago and thought it was top notch. Let's see how it is at work.
Look-The light yellowish tones you'd expect from a pilsner
Smell-Crisp barley in the nose
Taste-Again, crisp on the lips. That hearty barley flavor is front and center.
Mouth-Light bodied. Refreshing and slightly bitter. Dry finish.
Overall-This is a great beer. Your run of the mill pilsners are good session beers because of their low ABV but they don't really burst with flavor. This has all the flavors you'd want in a hearty beer with an ABV that makes it perfect for watching a game with some buddies. Stock this on Sunday and be the envy of your neighborhood party.
About Brooklyn 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 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.
