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.

Pours amber with an off white head and the aroma is weak or undetectable. Malty sort of scott taste with moderate carbonation but smooth going down. I don’t detect the hop finish described in the description. Good enjoyable Ale.

UPDATED: MAY 18, 2005 Standard ale straight from the brewery itself. As this was the last I tried, it didn’t. make that much of an impact. Beautiful rich, brown color.

ON TAP: light fruity smells, auburn color, low tight head. Toaste and fruity malt. Big mouth feel. Somewhat interesting and certainly well-crafted.

DocLock (7703) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 14, 2004
Pours a great copper color with a nice white head. Aroma of hops, malt, florals, and chardonnay. Tastes hoppy, with a nice malt, toffee, honey, cognac, fruit, and floral finish. Nice complexity. A great beer.

Slightly different from the Lager. Lighter amber color with a small white head. Decent hoppy aroma, malty. Same is true for the flavor. Well-hopped all around. Good beer.

BearBrewer (86) - New York, east village, New York, USA - JUN 13, 2004
Interesting beer. both mild and at the same time a little sharp. Pours with a substantial off white head, mild biscuity, bready aroma. Amber/brown in color, not too much body but a little malt flavor. Hops start out smooth and finish bitter. Not bad, but not my favorite

Amber, brown, clear color with small white head. Very malty aroma. Nice. Flavor is malty with a bitterness that comes and goes suddenly--like a ship passing in the night or a bad cliche. Generally good, seetness turns sacharin and has strange aftertaste.
