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.

Papsoe (25084) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAR 17, 2005
(Bottle 35,5 cl) Dark amber, moderat off-white head. Fresh nose of malt and fruits with a fine, discreet hoppy aroma. Very pleasant and quaffable. Awakes nice memories of last years "Brooklyn Pig Fest" where this was a favourite. Thanx Garrett.

oh6gdx (20821) - Vasa, FINLAND - JUN 7, 2007
Bottled (as pennant ale 55). Dark amber colour, small white head. Aroma is caramel, grass and hops. Flavour is the same along with some raisins and even alcohol. The hoppiness grows a lot in the finish. Very pleasant product.

omhper (19796) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - SEP 26, 2004
Bottled. Clear reddish brown. Caramelly and clean. Boring brief caramel flavour followed by a short finish with low bitterness. Lifeless and industrial. Is it just me or has this brewery gone downhill?

anders37 (17182) - Malmö, SWEDEN - OCT 17, 2005
Bottle. Pours a nice copper colour. Head is white and disappears quickly. Malty in the aroma, some fruits in the aroma aswell. You have the malt in the taste too and caramel. The hops are there in the background. Has a smooth hoppy aftertaste.

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!

Draught at Amberjack Tap House, Surrey, BC
Amber color, creamy head. The aroma is quite buttery, caramel. Malt flavor, with light residual sweetness, a bit yeasty and just a bit too much buttery. Strong bitterness. It seems to be off.
