This Summer Ale took me by surprise as it looked good in the glass after I poured it with subtle lacing and a thousand little bubbles. The first smell came on strong with hops, wheat, honey, and light pears before the first taste. Then the first taste was so light I had to keep trying it to register all the good things I had inhaled.
I was not expecting a light style beer at all. The Brooklyn Summer Ale tasted a lot lighter than Sam Adams' Summer Ale with a little more clean water and no perceptible hint of alcohol. This beer would be good for lounging around while watching the Dallas Cowboys trying to play tough with the Phili Eagles like I did today with a roast beef hero.

Reviewed based on tasting notes from a blind pale ale tasting.
12 oz. bottle inside a paper bag poured into a plastic tasting cup.
A- Dark gold to light amber in color.
S- Light malts, grassy hops with a hint of lemon.
T- Similar to bouquet. Also had some off, adjunct flavors. Not great.
M- Light for the style.
O- I was surprised this ended up being Brooklyn Summer Ale. I thought it would fare better. I won't be looking for this one next summer.
