Many people can vouch that Katzís Delicatessen in New York makes the best Pastrami sandwich in the world and I totally agree. Iíve been coming to Katzís for a very long time and I always knew they had a pretty good beer selection on tap but nothing really caught my eye until I looked carefully at a Brooklyn Brewery tap handle they had that says Katzís Ale on it. Boy was I excited to try this Brooklyn brew! It pours a nice cold caramel color a tad lighter than the regular Brooklyn Ale. Medium-bodied with little head but nice lacing on top. Very crisp and refreshing. You could taste the malts that were kind of similar to the regular Brooklyn Ale but this one had a unique sweetness to it. This sweetness went well with the juicy sweetness of the pastrami sandwich on rye. As with any Brooklyn brew, you canít go wrong with ordering this one. A perfect match to perfect pastrami.

Caramel colored with a nice thin lacing on topof the glass. Refreshing drink. Malty taste with just a bit of hop bitterness at the end. A good beer overall but not as complex as most Brooklynís tend to be.

Smells of toffee and malt, easily recognizable as the English-style pale. Flavor is also similar, somewhat toffee. Overall itís just and okay beer. A tad sticky in the finish.
