Very nice solid take on a pilsner. A bit darker than your average, but not by much. The aroma and flavor both showcase the malts, but are balanced well by some spicy hops. Very good. Perhaps not in my top 5 US pilsners, but very well done if you are a pilsner fan.

Poured from the bottle into a pilsener glass, an orange-yellow hue with an ample fluffy white head. Smells like doughy pale malt and assertive floral-spicy noble hops, pleasantly tangy and vibrant with a subdued rounded sweetness. Taste is saltine crackers, subtle lemon-lime citrus, faint celery stalk, white pepper, blackberry, maybe hints of apple, and a rounded corn-like sweetness: I think Brooklyn did indeed capture some preProhibition flavor here. Not overly green but does feature a more rounded floral citrus hop note, almost like perfumed tea, with a sweeter than usual malt backbone. Moderately carbonated with a smooth mouthfeel and thin but not watery body. Great pils in my book. I dig the sweeter malts and noticeable fruity hop flavors, although things don't stray too far from style guidelines. Top notch patio beer drinkable in quantity.
