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.

På tapp på Onkel Oscars i Namsos. Ravfarget med fint skum. Noe vannaktig i smaken. God tørsteslukker i varmen.

Bright clear gold beer, small pale cream coloured head. Palate is light and a little dry. Modest carbonation. Smooth dry malt. Whisper of overripe fruits. Touch of bitterness before the dry finish. Duller than dishwater!

Bottle. Clear amber beer with a large off white head. Aroma is malty with notes of caramel, biscuits, herbs, nuts and some citrus. Flavor is malty with notes of caramel, biscuits, herbs, corn and nachos. Not very impressive, seems like an old bottle.

Pours a clear medium copper with a short head diminishing rapidly to nothing, no lacing. Nose is caramel and biscuity malt, very faint hops, yeast. Taste is similar. Medium body, with low persistent carbonation and a mildly bitter finish.
A decent enough English Pale - nothing to distinguish it, but nothing offensive, either. I don’t regret trying it, but moving the remaining five out of my cellar might be a challenge.

Pours a dark golden color with hardly any head. Smells mostly like malt and slight citrus. Tastes like biscuit and honey, watery towards the end. Light and crisp. It was just ok but drinkable.

Bottle pour. Light brown with beige head. Nose is caramel and buttered toast. Hint of spruce. Taste us straight forward for style. Bready malts. Caramel. Pleasant.

From the bottle. This was a nice beer. Had a cream ale type flavor. Outside of the IPA, my favorite Brooklyn beer.

Bottle. Hazy gold/copper with a thin white head. Aroma is raisin and toffee with light earthy hops. Taste totally falls apart. Awful skunky mineral finish. Not pleasant. Spritzy mouthfeel with decent body. Everything is great except the taste.
