Brooklyn Summer Ale brewed by the Brooklyn Brewery - New York


Brooklyn Summer Ale brewed by the Brooklyn Brewery - New York         

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. Malts: Two row British malts. Hops: German Perle and American Cascade, Fuggle and Amarillo. Alcohol by Volume: 5.0%. IBUs: 18
    

Brooklyn Summer Ale

                     
Beer Review by Beer Advocate:
Appearance: Pours a clear golden yellow in color with some very light amounts of visible carbonation. The beer has a two finger tall dense light beige head that reduces to thin film covering the entire surface of the beer with a couple of slightly thicker patches and a thicker ring at the edges of the glass. Moderate lacing is observed.

Aroma: Light to moderate aromas of bready malts with some lighter hints of floral, grapefruit, and citrus hops.

Taste: Like the smell, the taste of the beer starts with some bready malts and also includes some light floral and grapefruit hops. There is a good balance to this beer and some light spice notes in the finish.

Mouthfeel: Light bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Smooth.

Overall: Very refreshing, very easy to drink, and quite enjoyable. This is a great summer seasonal beer and is very easy to drink on a hot summer afternoon/evening.
  

                        
Brooklyn Brewery
Brooklyn Brewery makes beer. Good beer. Not only does it taste good and make your meal better but we like to think that since its founding in 1988, Brooklyn Brewery has brewed flavorful beers that enrich the life, tradition and culture of the communities it serves. Its award-winning roster of year-round, seasonal and specialty beers have gained the Brewery notoriety as one of the top craft beer producers in the world. While striving to brew the best beer possible (and make time for our growing families), The Brewery promotes the proliferation of good beer and good food whenever it can. Brooklyn beers are currently distributed in 25 states and 20 countries. Throughout 2011 The Brewery underwent an expansion that will double overall capacity in 2012 and quintuple by 2013. Brooklyn Brewery probably exports more beer than any other American craft brewery.
