In this blog, we are going to get into the last summer seasonal and one of my favorite of this season, which is very rare. The beer is Brooklyn Summer. If you read my earlier blog on their Brooklyn Brown, you know a little something on this brewery. I try this in their can and bottle. I was wondering if there was a different from the can and the bottle. There was a little differences between the packaging. The first thing is the carbonation from the can to the bottle was different. Let us sample them out.
Brooklyn Summer Can
It is a clear golden color with a constant white head. There is a heavy carbonation to this beer. It has a very sweet smell. It is a light in body with a sweet light very malty taste without an aftertaste. It is easy to drink for the very hot Summer days.
Brooklyn Summer Bottles
Just like the can, it has the same golden color without a head on the beer. In the bottle, it has less carbonation. It has a very sweet malty smell. The beer has a sweet carbonation malty taste without an aftertaste. It is extremely drinkable beer.
Here is the description from the bottle and can:
Brooklyn Summer Ale is a summer refresher with a difference. The difference comes from the malt-100% British two-row barley, prized for superior taste. Our Summer Ale is gold in color, with a soft bready flavor, snappy clean bitterness and bright hop aroma, and will taste best before the date indicated.

In the end, this light in body beer with its refreshing taste brings that old school feel to the beer drinker. It is different then all the rest of the other Craft Summer Brews out there. American Craft Breweries do American style lager or some wheat and that is not my mug of beer. I still want something with some flavor to it. This brew from Brooklyn brings me exactly what I am looking for in a summer seasonal. This is a great beer and I am sad to see this season ending. If you can still find it, go get some! Drink it! Enjoy it! Metal it! \m/
