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

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 23, 2011
Bottle 35,5 cl. Courtesy of joergen. Pours a clear golden with a small off-white head. Floral hop aroma. Light body, heavy carbonation, a discreet fruitiness with a dry hoppiness. Never really bitter though. Fresh and drinkable - a little late sulphur. 230511

pilsnerrogge (2945) - Finspång, SWEDEN - MAY 23, 2011

Pale amber with a dense head. Vague fruity aroma. Thin and watery flavour with some vague malty and grassy notes.

auerbrau (3203) - Ithaca, New York, USA - MAY 22, 2011
12oz Can, purchased at Wakefield Liquors - Wakefield, RI. Light lemon seltzer aroma. Flavors are light and airy, crisp and gentle. I’m enjoying this interpretation of Dinner Ale. It’s got that light, almost carbonic seltzer quality, but with enough clean flavor and ale quality to it to let me know I’ve got something that isn’t piss lager. A bit of juicy hops finish. This is eminently drinkable and I think will find it’s way into my summer can repertoire.

AlbertC (277) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - MAY 22, 2011
Aroma is hay, some citrus not very much. Taste is moderate with some hops (net enough to make a distinct character) and some lager notes. Faily simple yet nice and refreshing.

13mikey (503) - New Hope, Minnesota, USA - MAY 21, 2011
12 oz bottle from Princeton’s. Bright orange pour with a foamy white head. Aroma is bready, citrusy and flavor is more of the same with a crisp clean finish. Named appropriately because this is a great summer beer.

olsvammel (7220) - Örebro, SWEDEN - MAY 21, 2011
Bottle from Systembolaget. It poured a clear golden liquid with a small white head. Weak smell with some bread and flowers. Similar taste but I also got some metall. Harsh mouthfeel with a light body and medium amount of carbonation. No this wasn’t a beer for me, to mild to have a harsh mouthfeel like this. It should be allot more easy to drink.

2.9
VsXsV (4437) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAY 21, 2011
33 cl bottle from Systembolaget. Clear deep golden liquid with small to medium off-white head. Smells of herbal, floral hops and bready/biscuity malt. Maybe a little citrus as well. Flavour feels British with metallic hop taste, light to medium bitterness and some bready malt. Light to medium bodied with nice carbonation. Very drinkable and balanced, but not that interesting. Good thirst quencher, that’s all.

3.2
larsniclas (7067) - Billdal, SWEDEN - MAY 20, 2011
Bottled from Systembolaget Golden with a large white head. Citric, flowery aroma. Pretty light body and bitterness. Fizzy citrus-flavour with some spicies.

tkrjukoff (4335) - SWEDEN - MAY 19, 2011
Pours clear golden amber with a nice beige head. Aroma is slightly citric, biscuits, sweet, fruity and malty. Acidy thin fruity mouthfeel. Sourish, citric, malty watery flavor with some tones of caramel. Finishes shortlived fruity and bitter dry.

2.9
redtechnj (315) - Williamstown, New Jersey, USA - MAY 18, 2011
Pours a deep dark gold with a thinnish white head. Aroma is floral, sweet, slightly bready. More bread in the flavor with a acidic undertone. It’s a nice summery, well balanced beer.
