COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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

Pour is clear and yellow but not a rite yellow with a fast dissipating head. Aroma is lite sweet and malty. For a 4.5% beer great full flavors starts out wheat and malts with a lite earthy hop finish.

Nice session brew, light sweet but pleasant slight hay light taste. Medium lasting. Not bad for a hot summer day.

Kjedelig ale fra Brooklyn. Tamm smak lite skum og ingen ettersmak. Filtrering řdelegger denne alen.

Shot (129) - Westerville, Ohio, USA - AUG 2, 2014
From a bottle. Pours golden with a fluffy head that dissipates fairly quickly leaving clumpy foam. Aromas of sweet malt, cut grass, lemon. Flavors are lemon, black pepper, slight herbal notes. Light mouthfeel. Not a great beer, but not horrible. There are better summer ales out there.
