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.

Serving type: bottle

3.79/5  rDev +3.3%
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.

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Pure golden blonde, very clear with ample bubbles rising from the bottom of the glass. Thick white head. Beautiful lacing. Nose is clean with pale light malts, hint of floral and mildly citric hops. Super clean and refreshing with a healthy carbonation.
