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

NosirIwont (2309) - Frederikssund, DENMARK - JUN 16, 2016
Bottle. 5.0%. Best before 22.02.17. Pours a clear straw yellow, bordering golden, with an off-white head. Fresh, hoppy aroma; citrusy, flowery, grassy. Light malt in the background. Flavour is sweetish, with a cereal-y note. Light (citrusy) hops in the back, increasing a bit as it warms. Mildly bitter finish, slightly dry. A bit grainy and with a lingering grassy note. Overall okay, but nothing special and rather forgettable. 15.06.16.

mrjez (406) - Osaka, JAPAN - JUN 14, 2016
Bottle at Token/Brooklyn Roasting Co. Pours a bright yellow gold, almost no head. A citrus aroma, like a fresh lemonade, quite bready underneath. Flavour is similar, lemon, peach, orange, light and spritzy, bready malt, slightly minerally and tingly at the finish, fizzy. Very crisp and oh so light in feel. Beach beer.
