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 Brooklynís world champion baseball team.

This is a gorgeous beer -- nice copper body under a thick, offwhite head. Smells like malt with English yeast, fuggles are pretty apparent in the aroma as well. Nice malty body to the flavor with a bit of English yeast fruitiness in it. The finish has that earthy quality to it from the fuggles. For a standard PA, this really impressed me. Maybe Iím just in a good mood.

Bottle. Appearance: medium copper, small head that fades quickly. Smell is sweet malty, a bit earthy/dirty. Flavor is earthy/dirty/grassy/slightly malty. Nothing special or even tasty here. Drinkable, but why bother? Not the best offering by Brooklyn.

Deeper copper color, off white head. Earthy malt aroma, some fruit, and mild floral hops. Medium bodied, some dryness. Not overly exciting but fairly enjoyable.

12 oz bottle. The whole "pennant" thing threw me off. Label just says Brooklyn Ale. Some kind of baked goods taste in there? Chillaxin. Brooklyn makes solid stuff for reals

Jeppe (2631) - Brooklyn, Alabama, USA - DEC 17, 2004
Sampled from bottle at Stockholm Beer & Whisky Festival 2004 (#43).
Hazy copper colored with no head. Nice sweet caramelly aroma with some hops in there. Plenty of fruit (oranges) also. Bitter hoppy and fruity flavor. Quite mild but good taste.

Amber with a bready aroma sprinkled with accents of light citrus hops. Juicy body with a fruity, biscuity flavor. Quick, dry finish with a fresh bread aftertaste accompanied with a tangy, sour note.

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.

SDbruboy (1864) - San Diego, California, USA - NOV 13, 2004
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.

jasonp (1573) - Ashburn, Virginia, USA - NOV 1, 2004
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
