Slight hint of hops and yeast in the aroma. Pours a clear amber with a white head that quickly fades away. Slight biscuit flavor, touch of citrus hops to balance it out. Nothing extraordinary, but very drinkable.

Very clear, lightly golden. Malty and hoppy gave it a good mouthfeel on the palate.A good summer ale different from the others. Found the beer to be quite uninteresting.

On tap at TJ FInley’s in NY. I thought this was a decent beer. Not much to speak of on the aroma, but it smelled of light malts. The taste was citrusy, and I thought I picked up on a taste of grapefruit. I will say I had this after a few, and it went down very easily. I will probably have this a few more times this summer.

Blah. A very bland and boring golden ale. This style is not known for being very exciting to begin with, but this is worse than average. Very faint chalk aroma. Pour was a nice light gold with a 2 finger white head. Taste was very bland. Tasted like dirty carbonated water with a hint of of grass. Not very enjoyable but ice cold and in the outdoors would beat a B/M/C.

Smooth and subtle in taste. Slight citrus flavor lingers for a short time. Great beer for a bbq in the summertime.

bottle. pours a golden body with a white head. Aroma is sweet malt and some earthy floral scents from the hops. Flavor is light and crisp, a subtle hop character, and light malt flavor. no etoh.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Good break from the usual styles of summer seasonal beers. This is a lightly complex, tasty ale. Light, airy biscuit aroma with fresh nuts and plenty of floral/grassy hop notes. Clear golden copper color with a lasting 1/2" white head. Moderate lacing and tight carbonation. The body is malty, but not too heavy with a complimenting bitterness. Drinkable to boot, this could be enjoyable throughout a warm weekend. Fresh, doughy malt flavor backed up by some nuts and caramel. Light, spicy, grainy flavors balanced out by noble hops along with a touch of citrus. The flavors are all mixed together in a nice subtle fashion. Well done Brooklyn for a seasonal that is off the beaten path.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Crisp clear golden coloured body with a nice large slightly off-white head. Aroma of fresh light a.a. hops, malt, sugar and a bit of bread. Light-bodied; Strong malty flavour up front with some hops and a floral taste. Aftertaste shows some character with more malt than anything else, along with a slight bit of perfume. Overall, a nice summer beer - very refreshing and definitely worth trying! I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Chevy Chase Wine & Liquors in Washington, D.C. on 03-May-2008, sampled on 31-May-2008.

Probably one of the tasties summer brews i’ve had in a while. Indeed very complex and many different flavors coming from all areas. Pours a vibrant golden colour with a full white creamy head. Love how the roasted malts and citrusy hop character compliment each other creating a very unique mouthfeel.
