Clear pale yellow, w no real head... lemony slightly hoppy decent aroma... Flavor has an initial hoppiness that is nice but ends in a malty finish that lingers while being slightly dry...

Brooklyn Summer Ale is a very clear light golden ale with a thin white ring of a head. It has a fruity, wooden hop aroma, with a note of lemon. It is light, fluffy and crisp in the mouth. It has a boozy taste. It’s lightly bitter, with notes of lemon and light grain. It seems a little strong for a summer ale.

Pours golden with a white, fizzy head. Smell is wheat, whipped whites and grassy hops. Taste is grassy, metallic and with mild malt sweetness. Kind of an egg white like flavor as well. Medium to thin body with crisp carbonation. So so beer with some flaws, but its drinkable.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a refreshing gold with thin white head. Aroma hard to place, but definitely bread/biscuit, wheat, grass, with ever so slight hops. Flavor is similar, refreshing, but nothing very memorable. Mouthfeel is a bit too slick for my taste out of a gold/blonde.

For a summer lawn mower brew it is quite good. It has a bready flavor. It is light and crisp a good beer for a hot day. Hops are mild and a little thin bodied to be my regular beer.

Way too much burnt popcorn for my tastes. I honestly thought I would come here and find that this was a kolsch, considering that all American Kolschs I have had tasted very much like this beer.

Light gold color. Smells of skunked malts and wheat. Luckily the taste is much better than the smell. Has a smooth summer ale taste. Leaves a little bit of an aluminum taste in the mouth after.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours a clear yellow with a two finger white head that dissipates quickly and leaves no lacing. Doughy aroma with grassy hops, English malt. Taste is bready, doughy, with some okay hops balancing. Watery mouthfeel. Crisp, clean aftertaste. Okay session beer. Nothing to rave about.

Well, it hit over 90 today, so I thought I would crack my first summer offering. This one fits the bill. It seems to be better than its parts. Very quaffable. Extra points because it is trying to be winpy yet flavorful. Decent amount of spices and citrus.

bottle. Pours a clear golden with a small frothy white head. The aroma is a corn malt and slghtly hpppy. Good sticky lacing along the glass. Medium mouthfeel, sweet hop taste with honey and a sweet finish. A good blond ale from Brooklyn.
