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.

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.

Bottled from,157th street bodega,-,nice brown color,white head,crisp strong taste,i think they should still call it Pennant 55 ale just cause it's BK history, damn fine beer very flavorful.

This is a very malty English-style pale ale; it actually kind of reminds me of a brown ale. The flavor is sweet and a little nutty, with just enough hops to balance it out. Good color and decent aroma. A pretty good example of the style.

harlequinn (2744) - Tacoma, Washington, USA - APR 25, 2004
This is a very tasty example of this style and the reason Garrett is one of my favorite brewers. Pours a deep hazelnut color, with a light frothy head. The aroma is full of sweet malts, the flavor is full of toffee and caramel, with a bit of a nutty taste following into the a bit of a bite in the aftertaste from the hops. I could drink this all the time.

kwoeltje (2232) - Manchester, Missouri, USA - APR 24, 2004
(draught) Lovely copper color with small whit head. Some malt aroma. Very balanced hops and malt flavor. The hops aren't over the top-definately an English style (as opposed to American) pale ale. Would be a fine session beer.

Lubiere (9999) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - APR 6, 2004
Light brown ale with a hazy cloud. Nose of malt and cardboard Sweet malt with some nuttyness and a light hops, but again, the beer is oxidized, with the stale cardboard coming out. Body is still nice and would be medium.

adrian910ss (2358) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 6, 2004
Copperish, nutty brown in color. Has a honey nut smell to it with a decent head. Tastes of slight alcohol and malt. A better than average ale from a better than average brewer.

Jokes (1453) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 25, 2004
Chestnut and copper with almost no head. A nice combination of malt and hops. English Breakfast tea, honey, grains and pine. The body is fairly moderate with a clean finish. The flavors in this one are nice, however, it's just missing something and can't compare with some of it's siblings.

MAP (1133) - Lakewood, Ohio, USA - MAR 18, 2004
Nice abmer body and a thin head on it. Leafy hop aroma with malt in toe. Flavor is smooth, quite oily at first, and ends with a good crisp feel to it.
