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 the Winking Lizard on Bethel. I havenít had this in a while, and I was pleasantly suprised with what I have forgotten. A nice malty flavor of caramel with an attack of hops on the back...maybe a little too much on the back. Itís body felt a bit thin, but only a bit. A very nice brown ale, but nothing extraordinary.

Delirium (652) - Houston, Texas, USA - JAN 16, 2006
UPDATED: FEB 2, 2006 Bottle. Pours a clear dark reddish brown with a moderate tan head. Sweet malty aroma, with hints of chocolate. Taste is dominated by roasty malt and a bit of chocolate or caramel, with some hops accentuated by above-average carbonation. Could do with a bit stronger flavor and less carbonation, but not bad.

theacelatrain (262) - Washington DC, USA - DEC 27, 2005
Bottle. Pours clear, dark, reddish brown. Minimal malt aromas, flavors of caramel and lightly roasted malts. A bit of smoke or chocolate roast. Not all that complex, and aroma couldíve been much stronger, but at the very least, succeeds in being what macro brown ales only try to be.

beerbill (3605) - Laurel, New York, USA - DEC 23, 2005
12 oz. bottle. Pours a clear, dark brown with a thin to moderate head that disappeared somewhat quickly. Light caramel aroma. Flavor is caramel and lightly roasted malt. I didnít get any of the creaminess listed in the description. Ok, but not great.

Brown with a light brown head. Aroma is generic. Nothing you look for in a brown ale or anything for that matter. Maybe construction paper. The flavor was probably sucked out of this one and added to there Imperial Stout. That is my only explanation for why this tastes like crap. Pure garbage.

whaleman (2178) - North Wales, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 21, 2005
Bottle. Amber-brown body with moderately high carbonation and a foamy off-white head. Aroma of caramel and toasty malt plus toffee and sweet milk chocolate. Flavor is of caramel, chocolate, dark fruit skins, earthy hops and a touch of smoke. Medium-thin to medium body. Gets a little stale and cloying, but basically a decent quality brown ale that paired well with some buffalo jerky. Feel free to put that last part in the next edition of your book Garrett.

beachbum25 (1086) - Powellville, Maryland, USA - DEC 20, 2005
Bottle-Poured deep deep red w/light brown head, almost looked like a root beer. Had a nice malty flavor w/traces of chocotate & molasis. Had some hops to back it up, but didnít overpower the flavor. Nice balance, long finish, I enjoyed it. Refreshing, I would drink this again.

GTown (127) - New York, USA - DEC 20, 2005
Draught and bottle. Heavier on the hops than other browns. Chocolate and coffee come through nicely. Smooth mouthfeel. A very decent brown ale.

Smoky taste, roasty, a little chocolately bitter. Heavy for a brown ale. Darker color, minimal head.
