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

Draft. This is really better listed as a bitter to me but whatever. It’s got english malt and yeast with very little hopping. I’m surprised to see amarillo and cascade listed, my guess is that is no longer what is used. It’s so under hopped (my guess is low levels of English hops) that you mostly taste unfermented wort. Oddly enough I once made a bitter that tasted very similar to this. Not very well done.

Golden color with a fine white head. Lovely hoppy and light fruity aroma. Fresh hoppy and citric flavour. Makes summer a lot better :-))

Pours strawberry blond with small amount of head that disappears fast. Slight hoppy aromas. Little bready. Light flavors for an ale. Just ok.

bottle at home, exported to the netherlands. poured a golden colour with a white head. notes of citrus, zest, crisp malts, cereal, wet cardboard, grass, and a bit of a watery weak mouthfeel. refreshing do, but not enough hop notice as you would have expected

Pours gold with fluffy white head. Aroma is light fruity citrus and sweet caramel undercurrent. Flavor is crisp and slightly fruity but has a somewhat watered-down feel to it.

Tometclo (162) - FRANCE - JUL 19, 2015
Mousse blanche de 0,5 cm qui se raréfie rapidement, couleur jaune orangé,non troublée, arôme de houblon fruité et malté, peu persistant. Au goût un peu de citron, d’agrumes, du malt. C’est léger, je n’ai pas été convaincu par cette bière de printemps. 355 ml Galeries Lafayette.

An okay beer. Light and pretty easy drinking but nothing much to remember. Still waiting for the beer from these guys I really like
