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

Westmeister (2129) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - MAY 31, 2011
Draft. Clear golden pour. Initially a decent white head that quickly vanishes. Funky, bready aroma that was not very pleasing with some minimal citrusy notes. The taste had the same funky bready taste as the nose. Some malt and a touch of cirtusy sweetness. I am hoping that the lines were bad on this one because it was a drain pour for me after a managed to drink half the pint.

oobawa (1575) - Tennessee, USA - MAY 24, 2011
Easy drinkin’, not much flavor-wise, but solid for what it is: a light, weak-ass stereotypical Summer Beer. A lawnmower ale. Looks decent, smells kinda like burnt hair, tastes like well-constructed MGD, feels summery and smooth, and ends up being a beer I could both drink and forget very easily. (5/27/09)
