COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Formerly known as Pennant Ale '55...Brooklyn Pennant Pale Ale '55 is a classic English pale ale, brewed with the prized Maris Otter Malt and Fuggles, Willamette and Cascade hops. Maris Otter is an old malt variety that yields an incomparable biscuity flavor. Pennant is chesnut-colored, medium in body with a hearty malt palate and smooth hop finish. This beer is a tribute to Brooklyn’s world champion baseball team.

12 fl oz bottle, as Brooklyn Pennant Ale ’55. Orangey dark amber colour, foam white head and aroma of biscuity malt, caramel, yeast. Taste is sweetish malty, caramel, bready with a light fruity spicy bitterness. Light to medium bodied, medium carbonation, dry bitter finish. Quite OK.

Advocate_Ames (417) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 9, 2014
Pours a clear bright amber with a soft head. There is a biscut like malt aroma with a very lite hop scent. The flavor is mildly bitter with a malty bread taste. The finish is nothing special, it leaves a semi crisp and dry grain bitterness taste. Overall a good standard brew.

12oz bottle of Brooklyn Pennant Ale ’55 from Wegman’s, Buffalo, NY. Golden amber with a ring of white head; caramel aroma; sweet biscuity body; and some more caramel to finish. More a Vienna lager than an EPA.

As "Pennant Ale ’55," best by Aug 2014. Pours deep golden to amber with a fair creamy khaki head that settles quickly and leaves a few touches of lace. Very subtle nose of mild toasted malt and some fruit, perhaps a bit of dust. Somewhat sweet, a bit tart, mildly bitter. Medium bodied, fair action, oily, with a lengthy toasted and tart fruit finish. Certainly drinkable, pleasant if not very exciting.
