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.

TheBeerGod (5053) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - FEB 29, 2004
Pours reddish brown with a medium tan head. Nose is malty and slightly nutty. The taste is somewhat sweet with malt and a nutty charcteristic. Very pleasant and very drinkable. Smooth finish as well. Great beer!

rlgk (9492) - Göteborg/Jönköping, SWEDEN - FEB 15, 2004
Dark amber, with a small brownish head. Aroma is fruity with some cirtus. Flavor brings plum, and all together this is a rather mild and ok ale.

michael-pollack (4960) - King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 20, 2004
Great rich brown color. UNfortunatly it does not match the weak, malty flavor.

SpringsLicker (3046) - Tennessee, USA - FEB 4, 2004
This has a rich brown color with an off white head. Malt aroma is predominant. The flavor is rich, malty and sweet with a slightly bitter touch in the finish. Another fine Brooklyn offering.

Spiesy (2338) - Sydney, Greater London, AUSTRALIA - JAN 7, 2004
Draught, at the The Blind Tiger, NY.</br> The meeting of Spiesy and AustinPowers, a top five hero. Whilst waiting only a few minutes, I helped myself to some quality brews. This was a lovely start. Brown with a nice light brown head. Big forward malty aroma lifting from the head. Vanilla, vanilla, vanilla, lovely!! Good long palate as well. After a few choppy brews at the Heartland Brewery I sure was good to be back amongst it again. Bless you Mr. Powers.

wunderbier (1434) - Tampere, FINLAND - JAN 5, 2004
12 oz bottle. Tall, frothy, off-white head is slowly diminishing and sits on a deep brown body. Nutty, toasted light bread malt (M); spicey, citrus hops (M); heavily sweet flavor becomes a moderately sweet, moderately bitter finish. Medium-heavy body, creamy texture, soft carbonation. The bottom line is: rockin'.

Dorwart (2342) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - JAN 4, 2004
Decent head with good carbonation. Settles to a thin light tan head. Great aroma. Rich and malty with some molasses and roasted grains. Color is a dark red/brown in color. Big hops flavor which is somewhat hidden in the aroma. Slight malt also. Finishes with a toasty sweetness that is very good. Pretty well balanced beer. A very good brown ale.
