COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Formerly known as Pennant Ale '55...Brooklyn Pennant Pale Ale '55 is a classic English pale ale, brewed with the prized Maris Otter Malt and Fuggles, Willamette and Cascade hops. Maris Otter is an old malt variety that yields an incomparable biscuity flavor. Pennant is chesnut-colored, medium in body with a hearty malt palate and smooth hop finish. This beer is a tribute to Brooklyns world champion baseball team.

From a bottle, at an art reception at "Semantics" gallery - This has a nice, hoppy pale ale taste, but the flavor doesnt linger, and its somewhat lacking in body. Still, this is a good beer, and Ill gladly drink some more!

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 Im just in a good mood.

hershiser2 (2857) - 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.

Jine (903) - Nutley, New Jersey, USA - JAN 1, 2005
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).
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.

Wiseblood (700) - Clarksville, Tennessee, USA - NOV 28, 2004
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
Its from Brooklyn. Great things come from Brooklyn. Okay, this isnt great but it aint 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 its 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.
