Poured out into my new Warsteiner pils glass I got from my little bro for christmas. I drank alot of Bitburger pils in Germany this summer, but this is my first american offering as well as my first from Brooklyn. Lovely golden amber color, honey tones, very light creamy head that billows out of the glass. lots of hoppy,piney,floral, bitter citrus aromas on the nose. very aromatic. flovor matches the aroma, citus,hops. very good, a lot more in this brew than i expected. will purchase 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.

Serving type: bottle

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.
