look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Straw yellow with a pure white head and excellent carbonation. It's a little on the cloudy side for a Pils.

Typically aromatic Brooklyn beers use continental hops as well as anyone, and the floral Saaz hops present here are no exception. Lightly kilned malt provides just enough aromatic support.

The snappy continental hops join in for flavor as well, also balancing with light malt that leads into a crisp finishing bitterness. Slight sulfur, but fits the style without detracting. Excellent body with some backbone, while maintaining a classic pils ability to refresh on a hot summer day. You want a "lawnmower" beer? Take this over a thin bodied macro production after any day working in the hot sun. Very well done.

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.
