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.

IslandHaole (1091) - Yokosuka-Shi, Kanagawa-Ken, JAPAN - DEC 1, 2004
Brown and clear with a beige head. Cocoa, soy sauce, chocolate, coffee, caramel, w/ floral hops, very aromatic. Sweet and malty with the floral hop flavor. A touch thin but quite good! Hello to my friend E.J. from Korea who shared this with me!

PetetheMeat (621) - Hove, DENMARK - NOV 25, 2004
Reddish brown ale, short off white head. hoppy aroma with some sourness. Nutty flavour with roasted malts. Minerals? An underlying moderate sourness. A touch of some perfumy hops in the finish (cascade?)

tap. brown with ruby hues, aroma of roasted macadamia nuts, pretty typical, a little watery, easy to drink but nothing to brag about

Hangover (1058) - Atlanta, Alabama, USA - NOV 13, 2004
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 canít get enough of that stuff!!

SwedeDog (364) - Windsor, Connecticut, USA - NOV 11, 2004
Bottle. Pours dark ruby-chesnut color. Active carbonation that gives a quick head, and leaves a good lacing. Chocolate malt aroma, but itís light. Smooth finish. Not too hoppy, not too sweet, not too bitter. This oneís juuust right, Goldilocks would approve. All in all, itís 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 (2187) - 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.
