Bought it expecting light and bubbly but found it’s a bit dry and almost homebrew tasting. Solid ale but nothing amazing.

Hmmm. This is apparently a different beer than "Brooklyn American Ale", which is sold in markets in Finland. However, the ABV does not match the 5% "Summer Ale" I sampled at Brooklyn Brewery a month ago. The rating below is for the latter:
Golden color, white head. Hoppy aroma with a hint of lemon. Fairly light, malty flavor. Light body, medium carbonation. An easy-going summer ale.

Hazy golden yellow with lasting lacy white; Flava is light crisp and citrusy with grainy notes; feels light some fizz; finishes dry and slightly tart and a bit cloying on the tongue.
