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.

Bottle. Dark brown color with a moderate off white head. Sweet malty aromas with caramel, nuts and dough. Light chocolate and nuts in the flavor. Some mild floral hops balance. A very palatable brown.

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.

Brown toffee color, vanishing brown head. A bit tight malty and cheese aroma. Medium-bodied, malty, late hoppyness. Lacks normal sweet notes of brown ale.

sayravai (4674) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 3, 2005
UPDATED: FEB 18, 2008 (Draught@Pikkulintu) Clear dark reddish amber with a small, partly lasting head. Chocolatey-fruity aroma with caramely malt. Dark-fruity, nutty-hoppy flavor with some metallic-alcoholy, lagery hints, and some ashy roastiness. Medium-bodied, quite carbonated palate. A brown ale somewhat in the style of a Belgian Oud Bruin. Not much hops here. (Bottled@HBF 2005, was 7-4-8-4-14=3.7) Dark amber color with a medium, lacy head. Aromatic-hoppy, nutty and slightly alcoholic aroma. Smoothly malty, nicely hopped flavor. Medium-bodied, slicky, bitter and slightly alcoholic palate. A pleasantly smooth, yet bitter and aromatic brew. Could hide the ABV better, though.
