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

mrjez (410) - 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.

355 ml bottle from a Netto discounter. Clear, copper colour with a thin, white head. Sweet aroma with citrus fruits, bread, floral notes and light caramel malts. Taste is light bitter. Medium body with a creamy texture and a soft carbonation. Finishes dry and slightly bitter with citrus fruits and soft, toffee notes. Fine, balanced.

AVLarsen (96) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 10, 2016
Bottle. A very fruity and easy-to-drink ale. Nice and hoppy but without the body of an IPA. Which is ok for a summer beer but i’d rather have a real IPA...
