look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Serving Type: 355 mL bottle poured into a Brooklyn Brewery tulip pint glass.

Appearance: Fizzy head dissipating to a light haze with minimal lacing. Clear, pale golden color.

Smell: Full cereal malt aroma with slight citrus and resin of hops.

Taste: Malty bread flavor with gentle underlying citrus rind from hops and a slight (and pleasant) tendency towards saltiness. Semidry finish.

Mouthfeel: Clean, slightly creamy. Lightly carbonated.

Overall: Light and refreshing, but complex enough to be a more enjoyable summer seasonal, especially with its slightly savory, salty flavors.

Brooklyn Summer Ale brewed by Brooklyn Brewery with an ABV of 5.0 % This brew pours out a nice amber color with a nice white head. The smell is rich grains and sweetness. There is nothing overpowering in the smell. The taste is nothing to write home about. It is clean and refreshing. Brooklyn Summer Ale is also smooth. There is nothing overpowering in this brew. The mouthfeel is nice and clean. No bad after taste just smoothness. Overall I'm giving this brew a 4.25 out of 5. I would get this brew again.
