Commercial Description

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

    Imagine an industrial lager but with floral hop aroma and bitter hops for a balanced finish. A good, easy beer for hot weather - you can spend some time with this or you can drink it and grab another. Perfect for the season.

    Clear golden almost amber in color. Nice soapy off white head that settle into a fine ring. The smell was of roasted malt with hints of a doughy biscuit. Had a mild, dry, leafy hop smell that was very well balanced and very clean. This beer had a bready/biscuit taste that lingers on the palate nicely until the next sip. Somewhat of a smokey flavor I thought. Had a medium/thin and sort of chewy mouthfeel. The finish was smooth and slightly dry. A bit heavier in the mouthfeel than most summer ales. I rather like this beer. I would enjoy this even through the fall season. Not a typical summer brew and I like this better than most summer wheat beers that I have tried. This would be perfect for those hot/humid summer nights, but I don't know about the scorching hot part of a summers day.
