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.

Pours a dark brown with ruby highlights. Head is initially thick and slowly fades. Very nice aroma of Chocolate and vanilla. Medium bodied with active carbonation on the palette. Some mild nutty flavors come out, along with more subdued chocolate and black malts. Hoppy at the end. Pretty good for a brown ale. Slightly complex when warmed. Above average. My favorite from this brewer is their ipa.. I can’t get enough of that stuff!!

Bottle. Pours dark ruby-chesnut color. Active carbonation that gives a quick head, and leaves a good lacing. Chocolate malt aroma, but it’s light. Smooth finish. Not too hoppy, not too sweet, not too bitter. This one’s juuust right, Goldilocks would approve. All in all, it’s good, but the degree of difficulty is low.

Wonderful deep ruby brown color and a decent head. Malty sweet and just a reall pleasant pint of ale -- especially when fresh from the tap.

jb (2163) - Rochester, New York, USA - NOV 2, 2004
UPDATED: JAN 8, 2010 Beautiful reddish brown color, tan head that pours out thick. Not especially long-lasting though. Chocolate malt comes through adding a little sweetness, not too much though. Nutty taste, clean finish. I liked it.

ChristianSA (368) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 31, 2004
35cl bottle, Clear dark brown. Absolutely wonderful smell dominated by cascade hops. Thin mouthfeel. Disappointing flavour of fruit and piney hops. As it warms some faint cocoa can be detected, but no nuts,, sweet malt or caramel is found. Not what you would normally associate with a brown ale. Dry finish. Refeshing and a nose to die for, but not my favourite.

Pours a brown with a tan head. The flavor is kind of sweet with a good nutty finish. This is an ok brown ale.

I have only had this in a bottle. Sweet finish to the beer with no aftertaste. Short finish with a medium body. Soft carbonation.

On tap at Summits Wayside Tavern...As far as I’m concerned this beer sets the standard for brown ales..Excellent hopping which could be what sets it apart from the crowd...I thoroughly enjoyed this beer and will definitely have it again

MiP (13573) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - OCT 26, 2004
Bottle. Very malty aroma, hint of bonbon. Nice chestnut colour. Light brown head, disappears too quickly. Malty, sweet/sour flavour, reminding me of a slightly failed homebrew. But nice enough beer still.
