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.

Itís from Brooklyn so I wanted to give this great scores. Couldnít do it. The aroma was sweet, caramel, nutty. Yet there was a very unusual hint to the nose. The flavor was off. Sour and bitter with an unusual finish. Something just didnít seem right. Expected better.

UPDATED: NOV 7, 2004 Great Brown ale! Pours a nice reddish dark brown with a tan head. Aroma is nutty and malty. Taste is of nuts, toffee, roastiness, caramel, with a hint of chocolate. Moderately sweet, has a good hop presence. Mouthfeel is very full and round. Nice lacing and head retention.

Appearance: deep, rosy-reddish coppery hue, with a slim tannish layer of film atop. Aroma: brown sugary sweet, notes of toffee and caramel, light, malty & pleasant. Taste: hmmm....first of all, the neck label asserts that this asserts a higher hoppiness in contrast to the malt, but, oddly, thatís not how I found this brew. Quite the opposite. To continue, tasty mouthfeel, richly rounding the palate and coating it good, brief, but tasty hops, lush, chocolatey malt. Medium body, feeling thinner as we drain the bottle, with a simple, but assured finish. Definiely tastier than the milder versions out there, (Iím talking about you, Newcastle)but not by too much.

A small amount of caramel colored head, goes along nicely with the very dark brown color of this fine ale. Only downside is a little bit of a rough after taste, almost as though it leaves a residue on your tongue. Still wonderful taste.

Brown w. small head. Very malty flavour that goes on into the nice bitter finish. Notes of vegetables and liqourice. Ok palate...

Nice almost coca cola like colour with small fine head. Aroma is malty with some caramel and coffee notes. Flavor has a nice roasted taste with a fine bitter finish.

Nice. Nutty, almost almond-cashew. Heavy , but not syrupy/motor oil heavy you see with some beers. Very well done. Applause to Brooklyn Brewery.

Bottle. Nice fruity hoppy aroma. Lots of hops in the flavour for a brown ale. Unable to detect the malt that everybody seems to be talking about. But nevertheless, I find it to my liking.

Nice smooth ale. Has a sweet, nutty aroma and taste to match. It also has that great malty flavor taht I like. I am a big fan of this beer and its sister brews.
