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

Poured into a duvel tulip. Pours a mostly clear yellow gold with almost no head and little lacing. Aroma is bread, lemon, and yeast. Taste is lemon, biscuit, and little else. Thin mouthfeel and it tastes pretty watered down. Pretty below average.

Draft. Pours clear pale yellow. Just tastes like malt and wheat. Smells biscuity. Light body and medium carbonation.

Bottle. A- Lemons, citrus, wheat, slight funk. A- Golden color, clear liquid, white head. T- Lemons, wheat, slightly sour, mild funk. P- Light body, average texture, average carbonation, soft finish. O- Overall, this was pretty bland. Not that I was expecting a lot but it felt like a mix between a shandy and sour ale. Could’ve been a lot worse, but could have been a lot better too.

Kjedelig ale fra Brooklyn. Tamm smak lite skum og ingen ettersmak. Filtrering ødelegger denne alen.

Bottle. Clear golden colour. Light fresh floral aroma. Sweet malt taste. No finish. Refreshing but no character. Pretty boring. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Golden brew with a small citrus aroma. Taste is pretty bland with small amount of citrus. Thin and watery and just not all that great. Pretty plain brew that I am glad to have only purchased one bottle of it. Noticed in my personal notes that I had tried this back in 2010. They must have changed the recipe because my notes from then said this brew was hoppy and decent with an ABV of 5%. They should have left it alone because apparently I liked it in 2010.

Questa la definiamo una birra??? Orribile come si presenta, orribile nell’aroma e nel gusto, retrogusto inesistente. Devo dire altro?
