COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brooklyn Summer Ale is a modern rendition of the "Light Dinner Ales" brewed in England throughout the 1800's right up until the 1940's. They were also called "luncheon ales" or even "family ales", because they were refreshing and flavorful without being too heavy. We brew our Brooklyn Summer Ale from premium English barley malt, which gives this light-bodied golden beer a fresh bready flavor. German and American hops lend a light, crisp bitterness and a citrus/floral aroma resulting in a beer with a very sunny disposition. FOOD PAIRING Excellent with salads, seafood, quiches, and lightly spicy dishes. It's also great at a brunch. SPECS Style: English Style Light Dinner Ale Malts: Two Row British Malts Hops: German Perle and American Cascade, Fuggle, and Amarillo Alcohol: 4.5% by volume Original Gravity: 11 Plato

Légers goûts de malt et de miel avec une pointe de citron. Bière bien agréable et rafraîchissante d?autant plus qu?elle n?est pas forte en alcool. Moi qui ne suis pas fan des américaines, c?est une bonne surprise.

Pas trop mal ! Légère et corps pas ridicule malgré un titrage en alcool assez faible. Le houblonnage est classique mais rend le tout plutôt aromatique et desalterant. Soyons honnête : rien d’original ni d’extraordinaire. Elle présente un sympathique équilibre pour la boire fraîche !

Tap: Gold colors with a crisp malt flavor and finish. Full body. Just what’s needed for a hot summer afternoon at Coney Island!

Bottled. Pours clear honey, small white head. Aroma is light malt character, honey notes, light citrus notes. Not much there. Flavor is similar. Light sweetness, light maltiness. Not a ton there. Light and easy drinking.

Flaska på Brooklyn i hbg - lite lager toner, något friskare. Ljus i kroppen näst intill utan skumkrona. Väldigt lättdrucken. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

weordie (328) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - JUN 30, 2015
Pours amber with a decent foam head. A very grassy, earthy aroma. Quite sweet, thick and tastes like a lager, albeit a very good lager. Not unpleasant but not outstanding.
