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

This is a really good beer. Pours a nice golden color, has that light hoppiness. A good beer for those hot summer days. Only wish it had a little more kick to it! I will definitely buy this again.

Pours strawberry blond with small amount of head that disappears fast. Slight hoppy aromas. Little bready. Light flavors for an ale. Just ok.

Pours gold with fluffy white head. Aroma is light fruity citrus and sweet caramel undercurrent. Flavor is crisp and slightly fruity but has a somewhat watered-down feel to it.

Mousse blanche de 0,5 cm qui se raréfie rapidement, couleur jaune orangé,non troublée, arôme de houblon fruité et malté, peu persistant. Au goût un peu de citron, d’agrumes, du malt. C’est léger, je n’ai pas été convaincu par cette bière de printemps. 355 ml Galeries Lafayette.

Cybercat (4031) - Georgia, USA - JUL 12, 2015
Comes out of tap clear golden with a nice eggshell head. Crisp, malty aroma has a fruity underpinning and a hint of hops. Flavor is mainly malty plus apple, a bit of banana, and a snip of woody hops. Body and fizz are average, but it is quite refreshing. Enjoy on a sultry day.

A nice sweet crisp amber ale, very sessionable and different from what most summer seasonals try to be. Good beer.
