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.

Crockett (1012) - Southampton,Ontario, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 3, 2005
Red brown with a little off white head. Very slow moving carbonation. Toasted woody malt, sappy aroma. A bit of citrus carries over. Well balanced. Strawberry. Spiced bread crust. Light caramel. Chocolate. Apple and stewed pears. Nuts and buttery. Citric finish. Good little beer. Best before August 2004, whatever.

Radek Kliber (6519) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - JAN 2, 2005
Quiet refreshing aroma: impressive amount of hopps blended with brown malts, some woody - chocolate touch. Rich yet subtle. Flavour follows path of aroma . It does not disappoint. Light ale, refreshing hop front, then some sweeter malts and at the end bitter chocolate. Full flavored, still light and refreshing. Perfect session beer.

npdempse (934) - St. Petersburg, Florida, USA - DEC 22, 2004
Clear, brown, tan head. Chocolate ice cream nose with some grassy hops. The weak flavor evinces a light sweetness, chalky, metallic tinge, medium bitterness, some chocolate/carob.

nyf (2) - Aalborg, DENMARK - DEC 22, 2004 does not count
35.5 cl bottle. Purchased at Salling, Aalborg. Imported by House of Beer A/S. Color is golden brow with a decent head. Aroma is fruity and refreshing, while the taste is darker and chocolatey... Overall, it’s not what I expected and certainly not like any other brown ale I’ve had. It’s good, but needs balancing.

jmuhops (669) - Winchester, Virginia, USA - DEC 6, 2004
Pours a nice brown color with a decent head. Aroma is hoppier than I expected, with some roastiness to back it up. Flavor is nutty and chocolatey, with the hops coming in at the end. Pretty good.

Beautiful brown color. Slight chocolate flavor, but overall nothing hugely amazing.

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!

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?)
