Notes / Commercial Description:
Brooklyn Naranjito is a classic American pale ale pushed a tiny bit further. An extra burst of aromatic hops and a sizable helping of sweet orange peel create just the right pop of citrus. It elevates your favorite meals, brightens spices, and proves what a little orange can do.

This is a nice light refreshing beer with some nice orange tones. I could see myself sipping on a few of these in a backyard with some tacos or carne asada. It's not anything mind-blowing or particularly complex though worthy of a high score. I give it a nice solid three.

The clear golden light amber beer pours out into a Duvel glass with a 1/2” off-white head that soon recedes leaving a small ring around the glass and a irregular shaped thin island of foam on the surface of the liquid. Sipping creates multiple small patches and legs of lacing, most of which cling to the sides of the glass.

The aromas are mild and pleasant with some mixed citrus that includes orange and orange zest.

The flavors are much as expected from the nose with lots of orange and orange zest riding over a bit of biscuity malt and a nicely balanced light sweetness and citric bitterness.

The mouthfeel is on the light side of medium bodied and slightly prickly with the finely bubbled persistent carbonation. The finish begins as most of the flavors begin to fade leaving a bit of orange zest and light citric bitterness to lead into the semi-dry ending.

On the whole I like this APA since it is drinkable and full of flavors but not in your face intensely flavored. I expect to be having more of it as we move into Spring since it is also refreshing beer. If it were available, I could see having this beer on offer as one of a few beer choices during a Summer barbecue.

Looks in color like a pils, nice white fluffy head and some lacing.Smells like malt, yeast, hops, and an orangeade drink. Tastes mildly watery, with pale ale flavor and orange. Feels a bit too thin for my taste. On a hot summer day this would be excellent, highly sessionable. Overall not bad, not really memorable either. This beer reminds me of a beer that a friend would give me that he brewed. It seems something is missing (flavor,alcohol,) are a few that come to mind. I definitely taste the orange.

Bottle from Big Y.

Clear light orange with a dense, offwhite head that falls off rapidly leaving little lacing. The nose has a mild citrus peel note, a weak dough note, a mild grapefruit zest note. The palate is weak with dough, a mild hop bitterness, a grassy hop note. Watery, weak and boring.

A: Nice slightly hazy golden orange color, finger of head that quickly dissipated after a minute.

S: Floral, citrus, hop-forward.

T: Follows the nose, nothing too special here.

M: Light/medium bodied. Perfect carb.

O: I thought this was nice to have for just sitting around. Sessionable and I like the citrus notes, but not something I'll seek out in the future.

See through and straw in color might be exaggerating with lots of carbonation bubbles observed and a white head. Boy this smells like it’s got oranges squeezed right in. This isn’t very sweet and you do get the orange flavor in a slightly astringent way through the finish where you also get a grainy malt ending. Nice zippy carbonation and a thinner feel. I’m not in love with this but I bet it could grow on me. It’s not bad.

From the 12 fl. oz. bottle with a Best By date of June 18, 2018. Sampled on March 1, 2018.

The pour is pale yellow amber with a slight haze that could be a chill haze. Modest white fizzy head that fades.

There are characters of orange peel in the aroma along with grainy malts and grassy hops.

Light to medium mouth feel but overall clean.

The taste has the same grainy and orange sweetness as the aroma suggests along with a pepper note that leads up to a mildly bitter but somewhat clean finale. Didn't blow me away but it was drinkable.

This is an interesting beer.....light in complexion...golden and clear with a white wispy head. The aroma is a little musty, but also fresh with hop scents....herbal, floral, pithy, and intense. The taste is semi sweet with lots of earthy flavor. Hops continue through the mid-taste to the finish. Nice.

Naranjito brewed by Brooklyn Brewery, with an ABV of 4.50% This American Pale Ale pours out a nice golden amber color with a nice white head. There is also some nice spotty lacing to this brew, it sticks to the side of the glass well. The smell is rich with citrus sweetness, hop bitterness, and grains and malts. There is a lot going on in the American Pale Ale. The citrus notes in this brew are a nice touch. Between the look and the smell this is a nice inviting brew. Now for the taste, it is bold with hop bitterness, and a mild citrus bitterness as well. You also pick up on some nice grains and malts in the taste as well. The body of Naranjito is a solid medium. There is nothing overpowering about this brew, it has a super nice balance to. This brew would go nice on a hot summer day. The mouth feel is Bold, Hoppy, Citrus, Clean, Smooth, and Refreshing. Overall I'm going to give Naranjito a 4.25 out of 5. I would definitely look this brew up again giving the opportunity to. Brooklyn Brewery, did a real nice job with American Pale Ale.
