2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
12oz bottle ad Pennant Ale. It pours a clear copper colour with a small white head. Aroma is malty with caramel, grains and metallic. Also tomato sauce as it warms up. Taste is sweet-ish with some grains, iron and tomatoes. Medium mouthfeel with lively carbonation. Quite flavourful but in an unpleasant way to me.

Clear amber body with minimal head. Aroma has hints of hop, resin and caramel. A bit of bread notes persist. Taste is balanced and mild sweet with a bit of a crisp hop finish. Not amazing but quite delicious

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
DATE TASTED: August 9, 2013 ... GLASSWARE: Howard’s Pub pint... OCCASION: home alone--meeting the family in Point Pleasant tomorrow... APPEARANCE: swirling activity below a two-finger thick froth that paints (rather than laces) the glass the body is a burnt orange with steady effervescence--drop-dead gorgeous , and only a foot away!... AROMA: smooth, malty base with a bit of bready dough that mellows the secondary citric kick with a surprising apple scent--otherwise, reserved, as an ESB might behave... PALATE: understated, almost buttery smooth with little resistance from teeth to throat--a bit watery...TASTE: a basically thin malt profile pervades; typical doughy funk intertwines with buttery notes and a bit of toast--not feeling this one as impactful or winning a specific category... OVERALL: Plusses include its attractive pour and easy sipping nature; negatives (if there is such a thing for Brooklyn brew) is its paper-thin fortitude and rather doughy aftertaste...bearing the "pennant" moniker, this beer should be more of a success that its name suggests; as it is, this beer is merely serviceable, but a lesser player in the mix pack than I hoped. I was surprised at the more favorable rating afforded by other reviewers, but I will stick with my experience...

Pours a burnt amber color with thin head and light lacing. Slight spice scent with mild hops. Tastes a lot lighter than it looks not much to speak of so far as taste slight spiciness and a little bit of acidity to it.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pint on tap. Dark honey color, dull, with good lacing. Almost no aroma. I’’m conflicted about this beer, I seriously can’t decide whether I like it or not. It has a few toast notes, and a bit of sourness as well as a punch of mild & floral hops. I guess I’m disappointed, this is supposed to be a good brewery!
