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.

A fun brown ale that delivers what a brown should and nothing more. Flavor has a hint of vanilla in it that adds to the nutty body. Good but not great.

Rich golden brown color, aroma of dried fruit sprinkled in just a little brown sugar and baked. Flavor remarkably more balanced than I would guess from the sweet aroma, self-possessed hop underpinnings to balance the nutty toffee flavor.

Unmistakable dark ale nose and a full, highly satisfying burnt ale taste -- this is a neat brew indeed. It’s so tasty and morish that I found the bottle far too small. I wish I had a double-up to follow this one up. Cheers again to Brooklyn!

Bottle. Very dark brown with a tan/brown head. Aroma is of sweet malt and a little hop. Taste is much the same, with a rich smooth malt taste giving way to floral hops in the finish. Very nice.

On draught at Anam Cara Feb 2005. Ruddy brown color, tans and mahogany tinges throughout, transluscent body and a small off-white head. Smells of brown sugar, caramel, raisins and light barley. Flavor is sweet, lightly sticky texture, with vanilla and an ever so slight amount of coffee. Medium-light body is my biggest complaint, but for a sweeter, dark malted session type ale, it’s quite good. Moderate carbonation, low hops profile.

Pours deep copper/red. Nice head and decent lace. Nose is complex of chocolate, almonds, caramel, bit of hop acidity, pine. Nice medium-full, creamy body. Tasty, rich and deep malts, caramel, chocolate on the the palate making it a moderatly sweet tasting beer.

On Tap at the Brooklyn Brewery. Not the best brown ale I’ve had by far but still pretty good. Great caramel-red color with a nice hop bitterness at the end. Tastes kind of chocolate-like reminding me a little of brown sugar and nutty. It s good and refreshing but nothing really special.

Dark brown color. Small sized tan foamy head. Aroma is malty, nutty and sweet. A medium bodied brown ale. Malts are fruity, nutty and sweet. Hops are floral and spicy. Nice brown ale. The nutty sweetness really shines in this beer. It’s fairly sweet, but is balanced by a nice dry finish. A very flavorful brown ale. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is sweet.
