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

Not really a fan. Pours a beautiful gold color with a thick, rocky head. Flavor however is lacking, and what flavor there is is of sweet malts, but somewhat too sweet. Probably wouldn’t pick up again.

Bottle. Pours a clear yellow with a two finger white head that dissipates quickly and leaves no lacing. Doughy aroma with grassy hops, English malt. Taste is bready, doughy, with some okay hops balancing. Watery mouthfeel. Crisp, clean aftertaste. Okay session beer. Nothing to rave about.

DarkSong (381) - Dacula, Georgia, USA - JUL 21, 2010
12 oz bottle. Pours a dark yellow color with a small white head. It has a strong lemon aroma, a resin hop aroma and a floral aroma. This is a very drinkable beer. It doesn’t have a lot of taste to it but it’s very easy to drink.

patrick767 (4164) - fort wayne, Indiana, USA - JAN 27, 2011
bottle - Pours clear gold with a small white head. It has a malty, slightly citrus aroma. The taste is mild and sweet. It’s crisp and light bodied. This brew is underwhelming.

lcwakshul (244) - Chester, Maryland, USA - APR 21, 2011
12 oz. bottle in a snifter. Nothing great about this one. Very mild all around. Definitely drinkable, especially during the summer, but still not great. The best of the golden ales I’ve had so far, but that’s not saying much.

2.6
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.
