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.

Borrrris (110) - LINDENHURST, New York, USA - MAY 16, 2005
On tap at Major’s Steakhouse. One of the finest beers I have had the pleasure to meet. Small, tan head on a mahogany body with fine carbonation. Crisp, medium body. Nutty, malty, with enough hops for chacter but not to become assertive. Not a hint of "burnt" malt harshness or heaviness either. Compiments hearty food beatifully. BUY AGAIN? Oh, yeah

The American brew I ever tasted (apart from "Budweiser"). What can I say? I was possitively surprised! I have since tasted several other Brooklyn brews, but the Brown Ale is my fave.

Never got around to rating this before, because I knew I would have it again! A fine brown ale with a lovely chocolate maltiness and a nice American hoppiness. I have a feeling that you can’t really go wrong with Brooklyn Brewery - Garrett Oliver knows his stuff.

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - APR 18, 2005
Bottle. Quite tasty, but not overly complex. Nuts, chocolate, caramel. With some orangey, spicey hop characters. Tasty stuff, and a lot better, and less sweet, than other Brown ales, which i liked.

Amber brown with descent light brown head. Malty sweet aroma. A well rounded brown ale. Very smooth flavor and mouthfeel. Can’t complain.
