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

Barreras (948) - Diamond Bar, California, USA - JUN 19, 2014
Pours a clear yellow color with a metallic aroma. Taste is crisp with light malt flavor. Easy drinking and mellow. Not complex, just a light toast flavor left on the palate.

Bottle from Harvest Market Crystal clear medium golden color with a huge frothy bone white head that persists forever. Aromas of bread sweet pilsner malt offset with some floral and spicy hops and just a touch of earth. The flavor follows the aroma. Sweet bready malt with enough spicy hop to balance but add a bit of non descript fruit. Light to medium body with a moderate to high level of carbonation and a bit of a watery mouthfeel. Nice enough easy drinking beer, I prefer a bit more flavor and body, but this would do fairly well on a sweltering summers day.

Pours a very light golden, light bubbles and a white head that fizzes away quickly. Smells light, citrisy, I can make out the English malts (most prominent), cascade hops and fuggle from the aroma. Light bodied English ale, citrus watery flavor balances a brew that is malt dominant. Easily session-able and good in the summer, opposite of a session IPA as the malt is the prominent flavor. Bubbly light beer i’m sure most drinkers could forget how many they had.
