Brooklyn Pilsner

I guess it was bound to happen sooner or later, but last night my wife was commenting on my hair getting long and said that in makes the balding spot on my crown look even more noticeable. That was the first I had heard about it from her, and the only other person to say something was the stylist at SuperCuts a few months ago. So I guess it's getting more prominent, but no matter how hard I try to chase my tail, I just can't see it. I'll get over it.

No SuperGalactic Awesomeness Beer-O-Rific named beers today, so nothing to get up my hopes, just my memories of my hair and my memories of the other two Brooklyn Brewery beers I tried.

Introducing Brooklyn Pilsner brewed by the Brooklyn Brewery in Utica, New York. On the bottle they make a point of saying that this is malt liquor in the State of Texas. Funny stuff! Well, the beer smells a bit dirty, kind of like my garage. The flavors are very light, mainly lemon and some hops and malts. As the flavors come around a bit, you get more of a chemical and medicine aftertaste. So although put together it sounds like I'm calling this watery medicine, it's not that bad. I guess it's more the style than anything. You could really drink this all day long, but you wouldn't because there are so many other terrific beers.

Update 8/13/2010: The Brooklyn Brewery was kind enough to send me the nutritional content for this beer. 5.1% ABV; Per 12 fl. oz.: 155 calories, 1.7g protein, 12.7g carbohydrates, 0.0g fat.
