Brooklyn Summer Ale – Beer of the Week at RBar

Brooklyn Summer Ale

BROOKLYN SUMMER ALE is RBar’s Beer of the Week!

Summer in Brooklyn is all about following your impulses, winging it from beaches and barbecues to stoops and rooftops. Brooklyn Summer Ale is a refreshing, flavorful pale ale made to accompany you on all your warm weather adventures. 100% British 2-row barley brings its famed bready flavors, capped off with German and American hops to provide a snappy, clean bitterness and a bright, floral aroma. It’s a sunny pale ale, Brooklyn style.

“…The color is straw yellow with short lived white head. It settles into a thin ring and leaves no lacing. The aroma is faint and lightly fruity. The taste is vague malt up front with fruit, especially berry, coming through on the end. Mouthfeel is fairly thin with strong carbonation and a slightly oily finish.”

Brooklyn Summer Ale

Come and try some Brooklyn Summer Ale at RBar this week!


Pours a nice golden color, with a half finger white head. Smells distinctly of lemon followed by sweet malt.
The lemon and hop notes take up most of the flavor, with malt close to the end, crisp, light finish. Mouthfeel is perfect for summer, light and crisp. Overall another nice offering from Brooklyn brewery, and a good summer beer.
