Brooklyn Brewery: Pennant Ale '55

Since this one is called Pennant Ale I made the assumption that it would be a Summer Ale style. Brooklyn Pennant Ale is not a Summer Ale style but I'm certainly not complaining. Brooklyn Brewery has unique ideas for this tribute to the 1955 Dodgers.

Pennant Ale pours a clear amber color with moderate carbonation and light, bubbly head. The first sip is well balanced but with more hops than a Summer Ale. This is a very traditional Pale Ale, certainly not over hopped, a very palatable and enjoyable beverage.

Grade: 4 of 5 possible pints.
