4/5 rDev +10.5%
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.

3.5/5 rDev -3.3%
I was pleasantly surprised after pouring this from a 12 oz bottle. The color was a rich, nutty brown with a decent off white head. The aroma was very malty with just a hint of hops. The taste backed up the aroma with a nice caramel malty flavor with just a hint of sweetness in the finish. The mouth feel was rich and the carbonation level very good. I would recommend this one to any fan of English style pale ales.
