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

En fin lys smag og en hel del sødme. Ikke meget humle men en fin frokostøl til en let ret.

phaleslu (9296) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 11, 2016
Draft served in a flight at The Casual Pint - Oakley Station. Pours a clear bright gold with a white sheet of film atop the liquid and lace along the sides. Not a whole lot here - straw, lemon zest, cracker, sugar, and grass. Light-bodied, with medium carbonation and a bright, clean mouthfeel. Cans of this would be crushable all day.

Light, fruity aroma with some citrus and biscuit malts. A bit fruity flavor, some sweetness, bitter finish. Notes of blue raspberry candy. Bright and summery in flavor, but very boring. Still better than industrial lagers.

Rating #1170, flaske fra Netto Nakskov

En gylden øl med stort medium holdbart skum. Duft af smør og let humle. Smagen er let med smør og lidt krydret humle. Medium bitterhed. Let alkohol i eftersmagen. Forfriskende og lidt kedelig. Medium tykkelse og tyngde.

Nuffield (4048) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - JUL 3, 2016
Doughy, bready, caramel malts, light bitterness, somewhat generic profile. Pitched to me as its label would indic ate: a beer that isn’t trying to do much. Success! Bottle.

Fine renewable off-white foam. The aroma is almost lager-like, but also a little caramel, pine and citrus can be smelled. The taste is gentle and slightly malty caramel. Furthermore carries the malt relatively long in a comfortable and very well balanced bitterness occurs with mild taste of pine and citrus. It is a truly tasty and well brewed blond ale in the English style (it is in fact a little more hoppy than the classic Belgian blonde ales). Brooklyn has always for me been good and tasty beer - this time is no exception.

Bottle at skovenhaven took it. Pours clear goldenw with white head. Aroma of cara malts, pislner alike, citrus, light grains, light old school hops. Taste is rather sweet with a bitter touch of citrus. Pretty bland and generic.
