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.

RichardGretton (4423) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - AUG 31, 2005
Bottled. Dark brown beer with a constant strongish head. The aroma is dry, roasted and chocolate, and the flavour is quite mild, slightly milky, dry but overall smooth. Quite a nice beer.

thedm (5141) - Fort Wayne, USA - AUG 31, 2005
This bottled brew marked best before 6/05 poured a medium sized head of foamy fine to medium sized light tan colored bubbles that left behind a good lacing and a carbonated transparent dark caramel red brown colored body. The aroma was malty and doughy with mild brown malty notes. The mouth feel was initially tingly and lingered in the finish with a very nice brown beer caramel malt flavor. Very yummy with even a mild chocolate note in its background.

SpudClampDawg (1029) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - AUG 29, 2005
This beer is a complex example of what can normally be a drab style. The mildy hoppy nose is well balanced with sweet toffee malt and an apple fruitiness. The body is nutty, sweet and roasty, but not overdone in any way. The crisp, lively mouthfeel makes this an easy drinker as well as a thirst quencher. Would make a great session beer and I would definitely buy again.

Bottle. Reddish dark brown color, very clear. Aromas of roasted malt, mainly, with a slight hop bitterness, creating a somewhat earthy smell. Palate is a nice balance of bitter and sweet, impressive for such a malt-forward beer, resulting in a general roasted, nutlike flavor. Very enjoyable.

ABUSEDGOAT (2416) - California, USA - AUG 23, 2005
UPDATED: OCT 15, 2005 One of the better Brown Ales I’ve had. Aroma is roasty caramel. Hints of chocolate in there. The flavor is the same, but also smokey. Nuts are there too. For me, I think this is 3rd to Rogue and Sam Smith.

savitska (163) - Smyrna, Georgia, USA - AUG 21, 2005
It looked great, deep reddish-brown, and smelled like heaven, but it was too malty for my tastes. Still a fine, relaxing session beer, but I would have like a more balanced hop-to-malt ratio.

NYHarvey (2153) - New York, New York, USA - AUG 19, 2005
Nice base malt aroma with a pleasant kick of hops atop it. Dark amber with a frothy white head. Sweet malts with a pretty decent wallop of low bitterness hops. Very nice feel and flavor palate. Has a tingly sugary feeling to it in the aftertaste. Thanks, Slob

Bottle. Tan, small smooth head that mostly diminished, fine-small sized bubbles, lacing was very sparse, transparent, carbonated, and a reddish brown hue. Aroma was malty, chocolate and hoppy. Flavor of malt, coffee, chocolate and hops. Smooth mouthfeel. Medium body. Nicely done!
