COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brooklyn Brown Ale, made exclusively with American ingredients, won Bronze medals at the Great American Beer Festival in the Strong Ale Category in 1991 and in the American Brown Ale Category in 1992. Brooklyn Brown uses pale, crystal, chocolate, and black malts to attain a complex creamy texture. It is more heavily hopped than its British forbears.

UPDATED: FEB 7, 2008 Thick head with nice lacing on the glass. Sort of chocolate malty taste, with a crisp finish and a slightly creamy aftertaste. This is a very drinkable dark ale. Would be a great introductory dark beer for someone that isn’t sure they’re ready for something heavier.

Very dark brown with a nutty-sweet aroma. Taste was less than great, possibly due to my heavy eating prior to this beer. Sweet, chocolatish malts were OK. This beer was too "in between" for me - I’d prefer either an amber or a nice stout, but not this half-breed that isn’t all that special.

via trade with goldtwins - Pours a clear brown color with a small off white head. Has a light caramel malt aroma and flavor. Has a lingering, dry aftertaste. Light to medium body. A decent beer. Thanks Larry.

Nice dark mahogony body with a creamy tan head. Aroma is lightly hoppy with some chocolate and light fruits. Taste was nice, nutty with some cherry possibly. A refreshing beer overall.

Draft at the Brooklyn Brewery. I guess i had this beer as fresh as it could get. Nice dark brown look to it, with a dark khaki looking head to top it off. A bit of a toasty hoppy smell to it with hints of almonds. very creamy and refreshing im sure this beer can be enjoyed on any occasion.

Sampled from bottle at River’s Bend on <b>9/1/2006</b> - Thanks Matt! I really enjoy all of Brooklyn’s brews which is why they are one of my favorites. Their brews are always aromatic, tasty, and true to the style. I feel that they are above average and worth trying at least once. For me, Brooklyn beer is what I usually go after when I need a good, somewhat unique, and relatively affordable 6-pack. Other than that, I will have to add more specific comments once I have a chance to really taste this beer again, although the Brown Ale is one of their best!<i>Rating: 7 3 8 3 15 = 3.6.</i>
______________________________

<b>9/18/2008</b>: Brooklyn Brown Ale has an aroma that contains some semi-sweet chocolate and sweet, caramelized malts. Its appearance consists of a transparent dark brown color that’s very attractive and a frothy beige head. The tongue is met with a well-blended and well-balanced malty flavor with a mildly hopped finish. Caramelized and some darker roasted maltiness is noted along with chocolate, fruity molasses, and a dry, roasty finish. Smooth and medium-bodied, this is another great beer from Brooklyn and a really, really good Brown Ale in general!

<i>12 fl. oz. bottle (Alc. 5.1% by Vol.) from 6-pack purchased at Jungle Jim’s International Market in Fairfield, Ohio. Rating: 7 4 8 3 15 = 3.7.</i>

Appearance: Pours a nice brown color with a red hue. Maybe you’d call it auburn or amber. Good two finger, off white/kaki head. Fantastic lacing! Smell: Nutty. My very first thought was of Tröegs Rugged Trail Nut Brown Ale, I think because of the nuttiness and the vanilla. The aroma was also malty creamy and robust. Taste: The taste is a bit malty with hints of bread, caramel and nuts. The taste is very straight forward, pleasant and rather boring. It’s very typical Brown Ale (but better than average), very good. Boring is not always bad. In this case I think it is good. Even though the taste is not complex it makes for an extremely easy to consume beer. Mouthfeel: Very clear maltiness. Full and creamy with a medium weight. Drinkability: This is a VERY sessionable beer to me. Extremely drinkable. It is inoffensive in every way; it is balanced, sits light in the stomach, low ABV, and it is not very interesting so there is nothing to think about except putting another down the hatch. This is a beer I could drink all night. This is a beer that your macro beer drinking friends would easily accept. It would be a suitable choice for your next party. Hope this is helpful. Cheers!

Brown and clear with a minimal head. Aroma is malty, roasted with some hops. Flavour starts semi-sweet wiht nice roasted malts before turning somewhat bitter from the hops. Smooth and full but I prefer lighter hops and more malt body in my brown ales.

bottle. dark brown with some ruby highlights near the bottom of the glass. Aroma chocolately, lightly roasty, and nutty. Taste is creamy throughout the palate, lightly nutty, light amounts of chocolate and some roast, with a good balanced hop finish.

Bottled. Not much can be said that hasn’t already been touched on. A good beer, but not a new castle.
