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.

Enjoyable English Pale Ale that gets the balance between malt sweetness and hop bitterness just right. Proof that an East Coast brewery can brew an good English Pale Ale.

Gusler (2653) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - APR 16, 2003
As the beer sets in my glass, a deep burnished copper color, the head mountainous in size, the color a winsome light tan and the consistency creamy. Nose is malt, sweet, crisp and fresh, the start is richly malt, the top middling in feel to the palate. Finish has a spiteful acidity, the hops present and spicy in their bite, a dry aftertaste, and another good beer from a great brewery.

Sweet fruity (raspberry) aroma with some ice tea notes. Slightly sweet with a light bitter finish. Interesting pale ale. Would have again.

Dark amber with a light malt nose. deep malt taste with a touch of bitter hops. Not as good as their brown ale.

estoppel (1028) - Buffalo, New York, USA - FEB 24, 2003
Amber body, rising carbonation, medium white head, malty nose with a hint of hops. I don't really like the sweetness of the body. A bit of Cascades in the finish.

Ungstrup (29019) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - FEB 23, 2003
Comments A amber beer with a fine head. A nice malty sweet aroma. And a filling nice malt sweet and slightly bitter beer. A great pale ale.

Nate (3636) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 8, 2003
Aroma has a nice tinge of hops but also a woody/pine essence - OK malts. Has a fake caramel color and almost no head. Medium high carb with medium watery body. Decent taste - quite a bit of hops but not overly bitter. There is also a spicyness to it - pine or juniper? that I didn't care for. A little tart/sour, also.

argo0 (11317) - Washington DC, USA - FEB 4, 2003
Medium light-tan head atop clear amber body. Aroma is sweet and malty, with a hint of floral hops. Taste has strong floral and earthy characters, along with some subtle biscuit. Medium sweet. Mild bitter finish. Solid English Pale.
