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.

Roasty Chocolate flavor. Its definitely more creamy than other Browns I’ve had. Great flavor. Not to hoppy or malty. Definitely a very fine beer.

Cornboy (424) - Eastampton, New Jersey, USA - MAY 24, 2004
Pours medium amber/brown with a 1 finger white head. Aroma is doughy, slight nutty hints and chocolate bitterness. A bit of hops in the finish, but the malt dominates.

iratherbe (255) - Marlton, New Jersey, USA - MAY 23, 2004
Surprisingly better than expected. Great rich brown coloring, pleasing semi-chocolate yet dry mouthfeel and taste, noticable nut and hops. A beer well done.

fasteddieIX (55) - Rochester, New York, USA - MAY 2, 2004
Pours dark with a small brownish head. Nutty aroma, with flavors of nuts, toffee, and malt. A bit like Newcastle, but more refined, and, in my opinion, better. Worth a try.

JagerQueen (123) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - APR 26, 2004
Pours a rich brown color, like warm chocolate. A light, foamy head with an strong toffee and smokey aroma. Tastes like an unsweeted, slightly bitter melted toffee, nutty chocolate mix. A little bitter, but very good.
