Brooklyn Summer is one of the beers I like the most from this brewery.
It is light, without being vacant of flavor! It has a citrus-ee note but not like Sam Adams.
It is smoother and more refined than Sam's Summer Ale - especially on the finish!
The mouth-feel is alive and bright - like a lager.
This pairs well with grilled veggies and lighter fare - chicken/fish. Not that I would throw it away if having it with a burger or steak :o)
So far..this is one of my favorite beer surprises this summer season!
