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

Bottled. Very weak in flavour. Tastes quite flat and cereal like, similar to a lot of alcohol free beers, Moderate lacing. Very dull, quite boring.

UPDATED: DEC 10, 2017 Bottle. Clear yellow color and white head. Taste is dry with low bitterness. Fresh citrus and mild hops.

same brewer - same issues. It would be great if they made 15 great beers. I am all for that!!!! But their beers continue to have too much hops, too little noticed flavor (other than hops) and far TOO MANY "extra" flavors that i do not recall tasting in any other beer I have tasted. no thank you, i will leave this brewer alone

chinchill (5343) - South Carolina, USA - OCT 24, 2017
12 oz 2017 bottle served in a lager glass.
Pours with a pale amber body that has excellent clarity and lots of visible carbonation. Fine white head with nice lacing.
A mild ale, but quite flavorful compared to, say a light beer. More flavor from the hops than the malts but very mild bitterness.
