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

Its a little too hoppy for a blonde, a little too light to be a PA. The result is a drinkable compromise that isn’t particularly good.

stantheman (1074) - British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 15, 2017
On tap at Biercraft on Cambie St in Vancouver. A pale amber beer with generous white head. Moderately hopped and malted, clean and refreshing, well balanced, an easy drinking summer ale with no world class pretensions whatsoever. 2.9

tfontana (1009) - Fremont, New Hampshire, USA - AUG 12, 2017
Taster pour at Craft Beer Race New Haven. Appearance is clear light yellow (urine-like) with mild head and lacing. Aroma is slightly yeasty floral sweetness, cracker. Taste is thin, lightly tart, without hop presence. Palate is light bodied with thin texture, soft-to-average carbonation and tart, dry finish. Overall, it is certainly a light-drinking beer, true to its description, but other than some floral aroma there’s not much here.

Canned. Thanks Airbnb guests who left this! Clear body, medium white head. The aroma has toffee, malt and herbs. The taste is more citrusy with nice balanced finish.

Pour is a crystal clear gold with a large white head. Aroma is some honey malt with a white sugar. Flavor is a slight honey malt and that is about it. No hops, bitterness or yeast ester. This is about as bland as a beer can be, but on the flip side you could crush this all night and not feel a thing.

(Keg at Black Door, 20170723) The beer poured golden and clear. Its head was medium sized and white. Aroma had fruitiness and white bread. Palate was light bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were fruitiness, sweetness, white bread and bitterness. Aftertaste was lightly bitter. A thin pointless brew.
