UPDATED: JUN 6, 2005 bottled, caramel nose, light bodied and amber colored. the flavor doesn’t quite match the aroma. a decent pale ale from nyc. not the best american pale ale, but it’s not bad either. garrison (812) - Cin. city, Ohio, USA - MAR 6, 2005
From a bottle, at an art reception at "Semantics" gallery - This has a nice, hoppy pale ale taste, but the flavor doesn’t linger, and it’s somewhat lacking in body. Still, this is a good beer, and I’ll gladly drink some more! Jonathan3584 (323) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - MAR 2, 2005
This is a gorgeous beer -- nice copper body under a thick, offwhite head. Smells like malt with English yeast, fuggles are pretty apparent in the aroma as well. Nice malty body to the flavor with a bit of English yeast fruitiness in it. The finish has that earthy quality to it from the fuggles. For a standard PA, this really impressed me. Maybe I’m just in a good mood. hershiser2 (3591) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - FEB 24, 2005
Bottle. Appearance: medium copper, small head that fades quickly. Smell is sweet malty, a bit earthy/dirty. Flavor is earthy/dirty/grassy/slightly malty. Nothing special or even tasty here. Drinkable, but why bother? Not the best offering by Brooklyn. IPFreely (1470) - Sanborn, New York, USA - JAN 15, 2005
Deeper copper color, off white head. Earthy malt aroma, some fruit, and mild floral hops. Medium bodied, some dryness. Not overly exciting but fairly enjoyable.

12 oz bottle. The whole "pennant" thing threw me off. Label just says Brooklyn Ale. Some kind of baked goods taste in there? Chillaxin. Brooklyn makes solid stuff for reals Jeppe (2631) - Brooklyn, Alabama, USA - DEC 17, 2004
Sampled from bottle at Stockholm Beer & Whisky Festival 2004 (#43).Wiseblood (701) - Clarksville, Tennessee, USA - NOV 28, 2004
Hazy copper colored with no head. Nice sweet caramelly aroma with some hops in there. Plenty of fruit (oranges) also. Bitter hoppy and fruity flavor. Quite mild but good taste.
Amber with a bready aroma sprinkled with accents of light citrus hops. Juicy body with a fruity, biscuity flavor. Quick, dry finish with a fresh bread aftertaste accompanied with a tangy, sour note. YourDarkLord (1800) - Urbana, Illinois, USA - NOV 23, 2004
It’s from Brooklyn. Great things come from Brooklyn. Okay, this isn’t great but it ain’t bad either. Dark amber color with a light tan head. Malty nose with some floral and some fruit. Nice feel in the mouth. Flavor is nothing extraordinary but it’s good. Some sweetness and maltiness. SDbruboy (1864) - San Diego, California, USA - NOV 13, 2004
Bottle - many thanks to slob! Pours clear dark amber color with a smallish off-white head that mostly diminishes. Aroma is of ripe fruity malts and light floral notes. Flavor is caramelly sweet and malty, quite mellow character with little hoppiness and a mildly bitter finish. Medium body and gentle carbonation.
