Beer News: Brooklyn's Pilsner Tops in Blind Tasting

Paste Magazine blind tasted 62 Pilsners, (click Here for full article)
and Kosher Certified Brooklyn Brewery's Pilsner came in at #6.
Here is the clipping.

6. Brooklyn Brewery Pilsner 
ABV: 5.1%
The verdict: An old reliable pils that one could easily take for granted, Brooklyn Pilsner is all the more likely to be overlooked when their classic, better-known flagship is already a Vienna lager. Crackery, grainy malt is the foundation for balanced, moderate hops. The varietals are both German and Czech in origin but come through a little differently than most—floral, yes, but also with some nice citrus on both the nose and palate, an impression like lemon and even a bit of orange. It is, all in all, a milder pilsner than some of the other bruisers, but impeccably put together and reflective of its American heritage. It’s kind of crazy to think this is a beer that Brooklyn has been making for more than 15 years at this point. If it’s been a long time since you last sampled one, this might be a good time for another evaluation.
