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

dantheman278 (1361) - SCOTLAND - MAR 12, 2011
Pours a clear amber-orange with a bubbly head that fades to nothing. Aroma is full, buttery, bready and malty, with a touch of citrus. Taste is thin and somewhat bitter. Doesnt live up to the aroma. Medium carbonation, some light hops on the aftertaste. Crisp and smooth, but slightly underwhelming.

Good ale. Not very heavy and easy to sip. I would purchase this beer once a year so I guess its a good thing that it is only produced for summer.

degbert (1771) - Austin, Texas, USA - OCT 26, 2010
Bottle. Definite bready and lemony notes on the nose. Pours a lambent yellow with a pillowy head. Palate is citrus-heavy with a small amount of hops bitterness and a slight peppery edge. Crisp and clean on the close. Good session drinker.

On tap at Winking Lizard. Golden color with a thin white head. The aroma is very light, but there was a noticeable maltiness to it. Flavor is a honey sweetness with a little malt. Watery mouthfeel. Easy to drink, but doesnt bring much to the table.
