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.

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

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.

Poured dark brown with a white head. Aroma is less nutty than I expected, with a hop presence. Taste is pretty smooth... much smoother than Newcastle. Has little nut character to it at all. Has a mild sweetness. The taste still wasn’t complex enough for me, but pretty good.

MAP (1133) - Lakewood, Ohio, USA - OCT 20, 2004
Dark copper color with a thin, yet lasting, white head. Somewhat nutty malt smell with a bit of hop sweetness that has a slight grassy feel. Flavor has a bitterness unlike a strong bit of hops, but more of a vinegear feel. Im not gettn past that mouthffeel, it seems to overpower an attempt at some good malt-o-rama.

Yum yum yum. Now i am a fan of brown ales and so I really liked this one which i thought was a good model for the style. Brown color with good amount of froathy off white head. Aroma is sweet like caramel and chocolate. Flavor is sweet, chocolately and nutty with a bit of hoppy finish, but overall great balance. When first served to me i waited a bit for it to cool down and once i did it was delicious.

Thanks to Sandco for this one. I’ve never been a big fan of brown ales...just a bit too sweet for me, but this one was pretty tasty. Not too sweet, nice nutty hops.

Crosling (1863) - Loveland, Colorado, USA - OCT 3, 2004
Deep burgundy in color with a wispy white head. The head lasts throughout. Doughy aroma, somewhat grassy with herbal and piney hops accompanied by a lovely chocolate and caramal malt backbone. This is a very solid brown ale. Sort of robust for the style and quite hoppy. The hops are herbal. The malts are fruity, chocolatey and carmelly. Good Brown Ale. I could pound a few.

Pours amber/brown with almost no head. Aroma is sweet and malty. Initial taste is hoppy and alcohol. As the beer warmed up it got much better. Sweeter and less harsh. Drink this beer cool, not cold. Good stuff.

Well made brown ale. Brown colored, slightly opaque, moderate tan head. Aroma is nutty, sweet, with a bit of carmel. Flavor is sweet and nutty, with a little hops bitterness. Sweet up front on the finish with the hops out lasting the malt on the tail end. Good Beer

UPDATED: JUL 14, 2005 draft -- a creamy chocolate brown with lots of lacing. nicely roasted malts and latte aromas. soft on the palate, with a lasting chocolate finish. smooth and rich, quite good. for a brown ale, it has many characteristics of a milk stout. not sure how it would hold up in the bottle. note added 7/14/05: bottle is a bit more bitter and ale-like, and less creamy.
