Brooklyn Summer Ale
My buddy Matt picked up a case of Brooklyn Summer Ale for our trip to the beach and we needed to have cans on the beach. The beer pours a golden color with a frothy white head. The aroma consists of wheat, lemon, pepper, grass, and funk. The taste is smooth and sweet with yeast and lemon, a grassy hop accent, and a pepper spice. The finish is slightly sour, but not a pucker sour. The alcohol content is 5.0% ABV. This is a nice, light, and refreshing beer to drink on the beach, and has a nice sour twist to it.
