Beer Review: Brooklyn – American Ale


Brooklyn American Ale has more crystal malt than Summer Ale and is more heavily dry-hopped. The dry-hopping in Summer Ale is all Amarillo, while Brooklyn American Ale has a blend of Amarillo and Cascade.

Brooklyn – American Ale – Review

The beer pours with golden amber colour with with some gusto,  there is a fluffy white head which dissipates quickly like clouds on a sunny day. The look is clear with no residue, there are large carbonation bubbles which cling to the side of the glass, giving it a sense of life and ready to tickle your taste buds. The taste delivers a fresh cut grassy kick, with grapefruit notes that are followed by bready malt. The sensation of a biscuity malt flavour begins to roll into a fresh hoppy tang. The taste is not overly bitter, which finishes with citrusy notes.
