Itís from Brooklyn. Great things come from Brooklyn. Okay, this isnít great but it ainít bad either. Dark amber color with a light tan head. Malty nose with some floral and some fruit. Nice feel in the mouth. Flavor is nothing extraordinary but itís good. Some sweetness and maltiness.

Bottle - many thanks to slob! Pours clear dark amber color with a smallish off-white head that mostly diminishes. Aroma is of ripe fruity malts and light floral notes. Flavor is caramelly sweet and malty, quite mellow character with little hoppiness and a mildly bitter finish. Medium body and gentle carbonation.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a beautiful sparkling clear reddish amber with a quickly fading head. Aroma is sweet, malty and bready. Taste has notes of caramel, toffee, toasty malts, light english hops, some citrus and a hint of apple. Pretty sweet, not much bitterness. Medium bodied and a little watery on the back end. Overall, pretty solid but VERY boring.

Draught, JFK International Airport: darker brown than many pale ales, boasting more malt flavour on top of some bitter English style hops. Finish is long and malty, really a tasty treat while waiting to boardÖ

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
10.20.04 12 oz bottle for the ALCS game seven. Looks rather coppery in an English pale sort of way -- Oliver calls it chesnut and I think thatís right on. Aromas are lightly floral with a nice toffee note and some apricot. Flavors are mild, pale, and ripe. At temperature the beer blossoms nicely and some floral character comes through on the palate. Medium bodied, very light eff. Thereís a slight sour note that seems to be shared by many of the Brooklyn beers Iíve had: not bad, but sour.

A beautiful ale, with textured caramel flavors. Maybe slightly more watery than the Brooklyn Lager. Gorgeous and refreshing, as Brooklyn beers are. This declares it, hands down--Brooklyn is my favorite brewery. Donít know what their process is, but all their beers Iíve tried--most of their major ones--have been incredibly flavorful, creative, and refreshing. Cheers for a sizable ale here.

This brew pours red with i nice thick head. Not a bad brew, but taste is watered down. Aroma is maybe kind of nutty perhaps.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottled. Clear reddish brown. Caramelly and clean. Boring brief caramel flavour followed by a short finish with low bitterness. Lifeless and industrial. Is it just me or has this brewery gone downhill?
