Orange-gold, plenty of creamy white head. Good retention, strong lace. Nose is lemony with plenty of citrus and malts; spunky hops in the background. Very pleasant, wish it were more bold.
Sweet wheaty malts dominate start to finish. Lemon citrus makes an appearance midway through. Hop backbone is definitely here too and balances well. This is closer to a hef than an English Pale Ale.
Big creamy body, festive carbonation. Glad I tried this on draft -- I'm not sure the body would be similar from the bottle. Very sessionable!
Not the best beer in the world, but it's great for what it is: a summer quencher. Cheers!
Serving type: on-tap

Serving Type: 355 mL bottle poured into a Brooklyn Brewery tulip glass.
Appearance: Fizzy head dissipating to a light haze with minimal lacing. Clear, pale golden color.
Smell: Full cereal malt aroma with slight citrus and resin of hops.
Taste: Malty bread flavor with gentle underlying citrus rind from hops and a slight (and pleasant) tendency towards saltiness. Semidry finish.
Mouthfeel: Clean, slightly creamy. Lightly carbonated.
Overall: Light and refreshing, but complex enough to be a more enjoyable summer seasonal, especially with its slightly savory, salty flavors.

Brooklyn Summer Ale brewed by Brooklyn Brewery with an ABV of 5.0 % This brew pours out a nice amber color with a nice white head. The smell is rich grains and sweetness. There is nothing overpowering in the smell. The taste is nothing to write home about. It is clean and refreshing. Brooklyn Summer Ale is also smooth. There is nothing overpowering in this brew. The mouthfeel is nice and clean. No bad after taste just smoothness. Overall I'm giving this brew a 4.25 out of 5. I would get this brew again.
