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.

Caramel, bread, and grassy hops in the aroma. Flavor is mild, slightly sweet, and smooth, with a little grassy bitterness in the finish. Given it’s low rating, I was very pleasantly surprised.

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.

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.

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.

12oz bottle. Pours a copper color with small tan colored head. Sweet malty aroma. Sweet flavor with a touch of biscuit. Definitely malt-forward. Smooth finish. Pretty good.

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.
