Many people can vouch that Katz’s Delicatessen in New York makes the best Pastrami sandwich in the world and I totally agree. I’ve been coming to Katz’s 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 Katz’s 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 can’t 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 Brooklyn’s tend to be.

From lescar, sheffield. Amber ale with a hardy white head. Aroma is grassy and nutty, taste is malty and dry very clean. Prickly and medium-light bodied. Refreshing pint.

Not bad. Love the label but the beer ain’t anything to get excited about.. Golden yellow, earthy spicy hops and light biscuit and caramel. Not too exciting but well made. Probably a one timer for me."

Look here, this is exactly what you would want from an easy drink’er: a medium malty backbone, with a nice crisp hop presence. Don’t over-think this one, it is a fine session beer. Serving: Multiple pours off draft.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Transfer from BA review on 10-14-12-
Poured from bottle into pint glass
Appearance – Pours a golden orange color with a one finger white head that has a decent level of retention. Over a time of about 5 minutes the head fades to give a medium level of lacing.
Smell – The aroma is heavy of a sweet caramel smell. Mixed with this aroma is a sweet toffee and a biscuit and light herbal smell. Overall, sweet, but quite pleasant.
Taste – The taste begins with a bready taste with some lighter notes of caramel. The caramel flavor grows stronger as the taste advances further. As it moves on more there are other flavors of a herbal and citrus hop bitterness that subdue some of the sweeter notes well. In the end a balanced sweet/malty/bitter flavor is left on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the medium side with a carbonation level being just the same. Both are very good for the style and suit the flavors very well.
Overall – Quite nice and drinkable. A fantastically easy drinking brew with a good flavors.

Bottle from Glug Newcastle. Nice hefty biscuity flavour with a citrus aftertaste. Pretty classic, and another example of Brooklyn's versatility

Very enjoyable. English malts really make this one and I enjoy the hop of an America pale ale. Good. Not great.

3.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Clear, copper in color with a small foamy head fading to just a ring around the edge. Little to no carbo’s.
Nothing to write home as far as aroma: malts and hops with the hops having a slight lemony taste.
Nothing special tatse wise, maybe a bit of biscuit. Dry
Last night I had a Samual Smith Old Brewery Pale Ale. That was a very good beer in my opinion.
The reviewed beer doen’t match up very well.
Drink well my friends
