2.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Brooklyn’s Pennant Ale comes to the plate with a rusty orange color along with a medium home plate colored, foamy head. The glass delights the senses initially like a knuckleball with a sweet, floral aroma, but the excitement tapers off from there. With so many excellent beers in their catalog, it’s hard to imagine Brooklyn Brewery couldn’t engineer an above average pale ale. The starting pitcher seems to have been pulled after 2 innings: The body is thin, even a bit on the watery side. The flavor is too sweet with its citrusy overtones and brown sugar hints. The closer is an ending that is round with a rather stale bite to it. Pennant Ale isn’t terrible, but certainly doesn’t live up to it’s siblings in the Brooklyn lineup. There are better pale ales for the Midsummer Classic.

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

Tap at Lazy Dog. Pours a slightly hazy amber with a thin layer of off white head. Aroma is mostly malty with just a hint of citrus. Taste of biscuits malts with that hint of citrus popping up here too.

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.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.
