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.

12oz bottle. Pours a deep brown color with a white foamy head. Nose is cocoa powder, some hoppy notes, and hitns of yeast. Palate is full and creamy with a clean finish. Flavor is chocolate and cocoa with a creamy feel to it and some dark malt notes.

Pretty clear ruby/brown color. No head. Smells lemony with hoppy notes. This beer tasted slightly bitter with weird bitter aftertaste. Very thin and I have to say I was not impressed at all. Brooklyn Please step your game up!!

This was a bit disappointing for such a nice craft brewer. Just middle of the road.... Deep mahogany pour, good lace and not much of a slight tan head. Nuts/legumes to the aroma, if there was one. Similar soured nut flavor, some caramel with a tiny nut-bitter finish. Feels somewhat medium to the palate.... very average and mediocre. Much better than the average macro swill, that’s a given, but nothing spectacular here either.

Eh... I mean what can you say about this one, had it draught with a meal. Not terrible not wonderful, has some flavor but not that outstanding really. Absolutely no aroma what so ever, color was nice but probably fake. Better than Newcastle but that isn’t saying a whole lot. Average brown ale. Nothing more nothing less.

Pours brown (obviously) with thick tan head. Malty scent and flavor. Has a slight spicyness w/ a candyish sweet background. Creamy body with a nice dry mouthfeel in the finish. Decent brown ale.

thewolf (12081) - Kolding, DENMARK - JUN 18, 2006
Dark brown-red colour with small brownish head. Fresh nutty aromas with caramel and toffee tones. Taste is sweet at first, then transforms into a slight bitterness with nutty feel.

Bottle. Creamy lightbrown good mostly lasting head. Brown colour. Week fruity aroma. Light acetic/bitter taste. Watery palate. I really dont think this is a very good brown ale. But it is still an ok beer.

Dark, almost red.Rich brew, full of taste, far beyond the brown ale from Newcastle. Brown bread, coffee, dark chocolate all rounded up by dry hops.
