look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3

Poured into a pint glass out of the bottle, a lively head with a straw golden body. The nose was of a hoppy, herbally, slightly citrus scent with a real malty, crispy bread scent. The taste is of a clean bread, almost like a french bread inside, real fresh. The hops were clean on the palate when I first swallowed, but towards the end of the glass, I noticed that I was getting an aftertaste that lasted for a considerable amount of time, which is why I dropped drinkability, wasn't as clean as a pilsner should be in my opinion. Other than that, a good pilsner that I probably won't grab again.

3.79/5  rDev +3.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Poured from 12oz bottle into a pint glass.

Appearance: light golden hue with a light haze and moderate effervescence. Head is a thick finger of frothy white foam. Pretty good!

Smell: lightly sweet malt with a yeasty character and a bit of a floral aroma. I rather like it.

Taste: drier than the aroma; there's a little bit of graininess here and a less-floral, more noble hop character. Bitterness and hops are subtle, but appropriate to a German Pilsner. I dig it.

Mouthfeel: medium-light body with a decent carbonation and concomitant creaminess.

Overall: highly quaffable Pilsner. It's not crisp and bitter like a Czech, but is appropriately rounded like a German version of the style. I think it is a success.

3.34/5  rDev -9%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

Appearance: clear straw yellow
Smell: very faint aroma, nothing jumps out
Taste: light hop bitterness with light malt backing, well balanced
Overall: solid German Pils. Can't go wrong with Brooklyn. Only scored it somewhat low because I'm biased towards Czech Pils which showcases the hops much better IMHO.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

A: It pours a straw color with a one finger white head that vanishes quickly.
S: There's grassy hops, some citrus and a hint of malt
T: Again, there's grassy hops, then some malty sweetness, and finally hoppy grassiness and bitterness.
M: Light and crisp
O: Really good for a style that's not my normal go to.
