Brooklyn Brewery Introduces Summer Beer
Here’s a brief description of the brew, according to brooklynbrewery.com:
“Brooklyn Summer Ale is a modern rendition of the “Light Dinner Ales” brewed in England throughout the 1800′s right up until the 1940′s. They were also called “luncheon ales” or even “family ales”, because they were refreshing and flavorful without being too heavy. We brew our Brooklyn Summer Ale from premium English barley malt, which gives this light-bodied golden beer a fresh bready flavor. German and American hops lend a light crisp bitterness and a citrus/floral aroma, resulting in a beer with a very sunny disposition.
