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 Brooklyn’s world champion baseball team.

Tap als Brooklyn ale amber. Prettig van smaak en goed kroegbier. Aangename smaakvariaties, maar niet verbluffend.

From Mar 2008 I got this in a trade with yobdoog. Thanks Trevor! This pours a clear amber with a 2 finger head of foam. I have to say, Brooklyn beers all seem to not be lacking in the foam department and most have great retention...as does this one. The smell is nice and sweet from caramel malt and I'm guessing, some fruitiness. The taste is a little lighter than what I expected but there's good notes of caramel malt, bread, a little roastiness, and some bitterish hop flavour that does some balancing. Mouthfeel is light, carbonation is medium, and it finishes slightly bready, slightly bitter, and at the end, a bit watery. Pretty good stuff and would be better if it hadn't lost all its flavour at the end. Still, I'd drink it again, no problem.

BB backlog. Draft in NYC before my sisters wedding. Gotta take what you can get sometimes. Pours an orange golden with average head. Stale hops and honey caramel biscuits are the main tasting notes on this awful beer. Light bodied and forgettable

Looks like a lager but is half way to an ipa. Lightly hopped with a malty hint too. Very drinkable.

Crap. High priced crap at that. Makes Rolling Rock look good in comparison.
