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.

Nice brown ale. Pours a deep brown color with a decent white head. Great slight hoppy, roasted nutty aroma. Perfect brown ale flavor. Good malty, roasted taste, sweet. Good, but I fell like I’ve had better for some reason.

ToolHead (266) - København, DENMARK - JUL 10, 2004
UPDATED: JUN 21, 2005 35.5 cl bottle. Label says 5.9 % abv. Served in Nørrebro Bryghus IPA glass. Chestnut color. Nice, tan head. Delicious, fruity aroma - very well-rounded. The flavor is pleasantly fruity, citrusy hopped, caramely sweet, lightly roasted, and nicely rounded. Superbly balanced. Easily drinkable.

DocLock (7829) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 9, 2004
Pours deep brown/burgundy, with a medium, foamy, white head. Aroma of malt, brown sugar, nuts, and cabernet. Tastes malty, nutty, with a slightly sweet caramel, brown sugar finish, yet maintaining a level of crisp dryness. I like Brooklyn beers, and this one is very well made.

hershiser2 (1210) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - JUN 25, 2004
Deep brown, with very little head. Aroma is sweeter than most brown ales- kinda fruity, and definitely full of flavor. Taste is sweet, medium bodied, and nice. Very drinkable beer.

BuckNaked (1230) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - JUN 23, 2004
Bottle: Another good brew from Brooklyn. Pours deep ruby/brown color with a medium tan head. Aroma is subtle with malt, fruit (cherry?), toffee, hint of hops. Tastes exactly like the malt described in the commercial description, a very nice blend. Has some coffee, nutty, roasted flavors, and later some tartness and bitterness provided by the black malt and hops. Worth your time.

ontario102 (794) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUN 17, 2004
This brew has a very nice mix of dark, roasted, coffee, nutty malt flavors, nice balance, and late tartness. Certainly a good brown, but it’s not as drinkable as it should be. I like other's better, and think this may be a tad over-rated
