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.

Poured from a bottle. Copper orange color. Decent little head and not a bad amount of lacing. Very fruity nose, tasty tart taste. Slight filmy palate.

Bottle. Light copper with little head. Smells of grain. Mild flavor. Easy to drink but not super pleasant. Brooklyn does not win the pennant.

A very tasty pale ale. Good bread and buttery toast notes with a mildly fruity hoppiness. Part of a mixed Brooklyn 12-pack.

Keg at London Fields, as ’Brooklyn Pennant 8%’. I’m guessing that this is the same beer and they just got the ABV wrong. Hazy brown, still, decent off-white head. Aroma is metallic and yeasty. Body is medium, a touch of carbonation, slightly foamy in the mouth. Taste is liquorice malt, some metalllic notes. Very average.

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.
