Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a pilsner glass.
A - Pours a clear pale yellow. Head or good looking; its thin and bubbly but dissipates quickly. Lots of carbonation from the looks of it.
S - Sweet malt, hops, some floral notes.
T - Sweet malts, hops with lemon flavors. The lemon and grain continues into the after taste. Good bitterness. The citrus flavors are a nice touch but they seem to mesh with the hops creating a kind of off taste. The malt and hops should be the focus and I feel the lemon hurts its balance.
D - Light bodied with ok carbonation; its at times overly prevalent and takes away from the flavor. Crisp and refreshing.
O - I've been trying a lot of American-made pilsners as of late to compare to my own homebrew pils. Sadly, this doesn't seem to stack up to others I've had recently. Don't get me wrong, its not a bad beer but its not a good one. Drinkable and refreshing though not a brew I'd go back to.

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.
