Share This Review

Brooklyn Local 1 is a Belgian-style Strong Pale Ale brewed by Brooklyn Brewery, and for the purposes of this craft beer review, the ale was served in a tulip glass from a 750 ml bottle.


The ale pours a hazy golden yellow color and topped by a thick pad of dense white foam that leaves behind some lacing. Effervescence is visible in the glass.


Yeast offers a scent of banana and lemon, spiced with clove, and mixed with bready wheat.
