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.

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.
