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.

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.

Bottled (BB 07/2005)
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.

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.

Crystal clear mahogany pour under a very light tan head which needed some coaxing to take off. Aroma very similar to that of an English Ale (and similar to Brooklyn’s East India PA but with more roasted malt and toffee notes). Well balanced flavors of roasted Crystal malt, toffee, brown sugar, chocolate - just a touch - and hazelnuts with a firm but modest hop backbone. Finish was clean, sweet, a litter bitter and even a tad smokey. Overall, this is a very refreshing and easy to drink brown ale which is a pretty good representation of an authentic English Ale.

Bottle. The colour is wine red with a tint of brown. The pale beige foam forms a finger thick rather compact head.

The smell is strong with fruity notes of sour fruit drops and roasted malt with some sweetness.

The carbonation is very strong with lots of small bubbles that tickled my tongue.

The taste is fruity and a bit sweet with notes of red wine and cherry jam. The aftertaste is dry and hoppy with some bitter notes and a long flavour of red wine and caramel.

A nice blend of a classic English brown ale and American micro-style hops.
