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.

CelticJohnny (73) - New Jersey, USA - JUN 1, 2014
Pours a dark golden color with hardly any head. Smells mostly like malt and slight citrus. Tastes like biscuit and honey, watery towards the end. Light and crisp. It was just ok but drinkable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

From the bottle. This was a nice beer. Had a cream ale type flavor. Outside of the IPA, my favorite Brooklyn beer.

conway (2210) - - MAY 22, 2014
Bottle. Hazy gold/copper with a thin white head. Aroma is raisin and toffee with light earthy hops. Taste totally falls apart. Awful skunky mineral finish. Not pleasant. Spritzy mouthfeel with decent body. Everything is great except the taste.

Pours a nice light brown color with off-white head. Caramel malt, bread, and a hint of pine on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes crisp with a nice hop touch.

danlo (2552) - Darlington, Durham, ENGLAND - MAY 13, 2014
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 (570) - 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.

Had a taster of this at a liquor store a while back. Light barely aroma, very light hops with only notions of citrus. Light bitter sour finish. Brown pour.
