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 beer pours a hazy golden orange color, and a quickly vanishing fizzy head. The aroma is primarily a dull, earthy hop character that is expected for an English-style pale/golden ale, but it lacks depth. The flavor profile is more varied, with a biscuity malt base balancing against a combination of lemony, grassy, and earthy hops. The fine, prickly carbonation drowns out any sense of complexity, though. Overall, this is a light and drinkable beer, but it is mostly uninteresting.

Light, sweet, and inoffensive, which is just what you want from a summer beer. It’s not exciting at all, and it’s a little too malt-forward sweet to be called balanced, but it does a good job of just being a beer to drink on a hot day.
