4/5  rDev +10.5%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Presentation: 12oz brown bottle. Freshness date cleary marked.

Appearance: A rich looking, bright chestnut coloured beer with a creamy, patchy and sticky off-white head.

Smell: Malty sweet and fruity in the nose with a complex hop aroma.

Taste: A very malty brew with a sweet profile and smooth overall feel on the palate. Grape and passion fruit flavours come to the front, followed by dextrin sweetness and light toasted/biscuit malt background flavours. Hops strike with an assertive citrus bite, crisp dryness and distinct coarse/raw herbal flavours and oils. Finishes a bit dry with a tea-like sweetness.

Notes: A classic example of (an American made) English Pale Ale. Very true to the style. Brooklyn's tribute to the world champion Brooklyn baseball team.

Grain, light floral notes, with a fairly bitter finish. Crackery malt, and there's a bit of a tangy/metallic character.
