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

njnut (424) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - JUL 1, 2014
Poured into shaker glass a gold color with a quick dissipating white head. Aroma was light and malty with a little caramel note. Taste was also light but with a malt backbone not corn. Some citrus very late in the finish. Body is light carbonation is fair. I think this is a good take on what is a bad, or boring style, as in its light but not adjunct. But why copy that?

copestx (61) - Vesterbro, DENMARK - JUN 22, 2016
Bottle. Smells slightly better than a macro pale lager. Tastes about the same. Mild (very) hop notes. So simple this beer is pointless. Who is the target market? I know this is part of Brooklyn’s macro line but this is just awful stuff from a brewery that can absolutely deliver the goods when it wants to (Sorachi Ace Saison!!).
