Beer Mug: Brooklyn Pennant Ale '55
Name: Pennant Ale ‘55
Brewery: Brooklyn Brewery
Location: Brooklyn, NY
Taste: The taste begins with a bready taste with some lighter notes of caramel. The caramel flavor grows stronger as the taste advances further. As it moves on more there are other flavors of a herbal and citrus hop bitterness that subdue some of the sweeter notes well. In the end a balanced sweet/malty/bitter flavor is left on the tongue.
What makes it special: Brooklynites revere the memory of the 1955 World Champion Dodgers baseball team, and a beer was named in their honor. Brooklyn Pennant Ale is a honey-colored pale ale with a brisk malt palate and finely balanced hop character. Pennant is a traditional English-style pale ale. Brooklyn Pennant Ale is brewed from Scottish Maris Otter malt, which is justly prized for its toasty, biscuity flavor and the round smoothness it imparts to beer.
