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

Bottle 355ml shared by Calisky. A golden beer with low head. Nose is very low, aroma is very also, just water, light malt, nutty, ant that’s it, very poor and boring.

ryanscourt (1154) - Latrobe, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 11, 2015
Similar to victory summer love. Grainy body with light hop sweetness and the end. Differs slightly from a session ale in the bready body.

nazbion (196) - Tübingen, GERMANY - SEP 3, 2015
On tap at The Boua, Rio de Janeiro. Hazy yellow with thin white head. Aroma of citric hops and malt. Taste is malty, light grainy. Light body, easy drinking. A nice session beer, but not very amusing.

Fresh orange, minty pine. Rich sweet citrus, grape, mango, lime, peppermint, dry finish. Pretty decent stuff, nicely balanced and refreshing as it is meant to be.

Douberd (3985) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - AUG 30, 2015
(Brooklyn Summer Ale) Tap at Cafe Samson, Nijmegen. ABV 6% Clear body, orange in colour, with one finger of white head on top, thick and with good retention. Sweet aroma, milk-like, old grass, grains. Taste also of grains, toffee, some iron. Medium thin body, soft carbonation. Nothing special and nothing summery about it.

I had it from the bottle. The taste was a nice balance of hops, bread, and malty sweetness. It was smooth but still had enough refreshing crispness to be a good summer beer.

planky84 (2644) - , Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 25, 2015
Keg at the Princess of Wales, Blackheath. Gold pour with a white head. Citrus fruit and peach aroma. Flavours of grapefruit and light spice. Quenches the old thirst on a scorching summer’s day.

Köpt på Harrys, Mariatorget. Stor besvikelse, har för mig att denna var mycket bättre för några år sedan. Inte mycket smak, mest malt, känns avslagen redan från början. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
