From the 12 fl. oz. bottle that says BB Feb 2015. Sampled on March 6, 2015.

The pour is straw yellow with good clarity and a lingering white foamy head.

The aroma is typical of a pilsener with maybe a slight apple thing along with the grains and grassy hops.

Body is light.

The flavor almost comes across as syrupy in its grainy and grassy character. Maybe that was the texture but I just seemed juicy. I'd drink it again on a hot day.

Easy to drink. Has that hoppy taste but not overwhelming

Being partly from Brooklyn, I want always to love this brewer (good) and six points. (Great!) (even tho many of their beers are made under license upstate I've heard).

This pilsner is great standout from Brooklyn that matches the Crisp, Smuttynose, and Full Sail for excellence.

A: Long lasting creamy ivory head and lacing for a pilsner over a slightly more honeyed/darker body. Wins on looks!

S: Deep, complex, floral, herbal and a bit gentle hop fruity.

T: Follows smell with base of cracker malt followed by full delivery of all that's offered in aroma.

F: Also gets high honors - with creamy medium feel for a pils. Agree with reviewer: "I wouldn't change a thing...my favorite offering to date from this brewery."

Must try!

I like crystal clear pilsners. This one was oddly cloudy. Taste fairly generic. Not bad.

A nice clear, no haze, straw color. Clean crisp taste with hints of sweetness. Good dry finish that rolls off the palate. Head is a bright white and the aroma has notes of noble hops like a good pilsener should. Fantastic carbonation.
