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!

Pours a light hazy yellow with a smell of citrus and a bit of spice to it. The taste was similar with hop citrus coming in first with lemon peel and grapefruit, but them sweet spices such as nutmeg make an appearance to give the beer a bit of a body. Very refreshing for the summer.
