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

Tap @Barley Mow, Bristol. Small head, gold/amber colour, clear. Aroma of grain and malts, also interesting aroma of berries. Light bitter taste with fruity aftertaste, light body, lively. Generally quite good, especially the berries.

MiP (15454) - Snderborg, DENMARK - JUL 26, 2016
Bottle, 5.0%. Caramelly and slightly piney hop aroma, hint of grapefruit and ashes. Clear golden colour. Good stable white head. The flavour is a little caramelly like the aroma, but does not have much of the other notes that the aroma has. The bitterness is medium to high and a little sour. Good mouthfeel for the ABV. Refreshing and light but still with some flavour. Works well as a summer ale.

guzgorog (825) - FRANCE - JUL 14, 2016
Robe blonde bien dore, belle mousse blanche. Nez malt sur du biscuit et du caramel, pointe de houblons. Les armes en bouche sont trs lgers : pointe de malts, sucre, houblon lger. Le corps lger, armes lgers, longueur nulle. Franchement trs du, bire trs fadasse, sans aucun intrt.

phaleslu (9926) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 11, 2016
Draft served in a flight at The Casual Pint - Oakley Station. Pours a clear bright gold with a white sheet of film atop the liquid and lace along the sides. Not a whole lot here - straw, lemon zest, cracker, sugar, and grass. Light-bodied, with medium carbonation and a bright, clean mouthfeel. Cans of this would be crushable all day.

Light, fruity aroma with some citrus and biscuit malts. A bit fruity flavor, some sweetness, bitter finish. Notes of blue raspberry candy. Bright and summery in flavor, but very boring. Still better than industrial lagers.
