one of the great summer beers of the northeast, and now that its canned, its even better. a light golden color, clear, with a creamy white head. it smells like pilsner malts, English ale yeast, and a crisp fruity juicy hop finish, more than is common in a summer brew. in taste, I get a nice combination of lighter malts, as well as some citrus fruit, ruby red grapefruit mostly, but a little lemon too. a touch of spice from the yeast is evident in the finish as well. effervescent carbonation is this beers best feature, it keeps it light and bright, summery. clean finish, ill take another please!

Bought a 12 pack of Brooklyn Summer Ale from Beers of the World for $ 13.99 on 7/27/13.

poured into a nonic, served cold.

appearance: lemon yellow with a 2 finger linen white head, visible carbonation. respectable lacing.

aroma: a fruit salad of peaches, apricots, lemons and a little grapefruit.

mouthfeel: solid, tingly with carbonation.

taste: bready malt starts things off followed by a fruitiness and then a subtle citric tartness.

notes: this is a nice little Summer sessioner that tastes great right out of the can.
