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.

Lowe1983 (1475) - Dayton, Ohio, USA - JUN 9, 2006
Pours a dark brown color with a thin tan head. Aroma is of caramel, chocolate, roasted malts, sweet malts, and a hint of hops. Flavor starts off with the caramel and sweet malts and give way to the roasted malts and chocolate. The finish is a touch bitter with hops but not too much.

12oz - Best before 8/05 so I’m 10 months past due - Aroma is of roasted nutty malts. Pours brown with huge creamy head and great sticky lacing. Flavor is also nutty and roasty with a bit of hops showing up. Palate is sticky. Pretty tasty brown but I wonder if freshness would help it any?

A very good brown ale! Draught, delivered to the table with a nice foamy white head and a deep brown/umber body. Quite balanced, none of that burned malt taste that some examples of the style incorporate. THe only complaint is that it was a little dry, but still very drinkable.

Bottle: chocolate, copper, and a little smokiness. Nutty. Not overly carbonated. Brewed to style very well. A good session ale.

At the VA Beer Festival, Norfolk, VA. Nice deep, clear brown with an off white head. Malty, nutty nose and flavor. Decent lacing and an extremely mild bitter finish. Liked it.

JFURYCAT (1079) - East Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 20, 2006
Bottle at Coopers in Scranton. Medium body which veers slightly to wetness. It has that brown malty nutty flavor which is quite tasty but way too subdued to make this something extroadinary. A good session beer but I’d rather have Troegs any day as I find it a bit one dimsensional. Not that it doesn’t come from a fine brewery with great products.

Gr0ve (2177) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 15, 2006
1 pint draught, Stout NYC. Small head, but one that clings to the glass leaving a nice lace around the glass. Sweet malty toasted aroma. Mellow roasted flavours. Aftertaste is slightly dry from hops and a litlle roasted and nutty malts.

Pours a dark brown with a small head. Aroma is fruity with a slight vanilla touch and sweet malt. Flavor is the same and the hops jusr hang out quietly in the background. Body is middle of the road with a slight fizziness and carries over to the aftertaste. Mine was a bottle but I prefer the draft version. I’l take this over Newcastle any day.
