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.

shrubber85 (10524) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - NOV 26, 2005
Bottle. A pecan syrup malt aroma. Dark opaque brown with small head. Flavor a mixture of sweet malt and hops - nicely blended but weak - on the watery side. A bit of a let-down in the taste department.

Medium lasting beige head. Red-brown body. Sweet and malty aroma. Malt flavour with notes of lemon. Bitter aftertaste. OK - but not extra ordinary.

TheBeerOrg (2145) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - NOV 9, 2005
Pours reddish brown with a thin wispy tan head. Aroma of toffee, sweet caramel, hint of raisins. Taste is lightly toasted, notes of walnuts, brown sugar, and some citric floral hoppiness in the finish. Medium bodied with medium/high carbonation. Good, but I donít think itís 84%tile good.

punkeedo (498) - Covington, Louisiana, USA - NOV 5, 2005
Iím only slightly surprised by this oneís rating. Stout-ish, b/c of a soy sauce and cinnamon taste. Not much head, but nice and dark. OK.

JonMoore (2062) - Loughborough, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - NOV 1, 2005
Bottle. Dark brown with a creamy beige head. Sweet, nutty, malt aroma. Taste is of malts, nuts, chocolate and caramel with a nice light bitter finish. Quite a light, foamy mouthfeel. A good brown ale.

xray (50) - Bloomfield, New Jersey, USA - OCT 29, 2005
29JUL05-Bottle. Pours a dark reddish brown. Small, short lived, thin beige head. Weak but pleasant sweet aroma. A very dry, weak, almost watery ale, even for a brown ale.

TINOZACCA (146) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - OCT 29, 2005
This is a great brown ale. The body is thick with a nice dark color, and a nice lasting head. The aroma and flavor is all malt, and has a strong nuttiness to it. There is also some sweetness from chocolate. The aftertaste is strong and lasting with a nutty flavor. A very good November beer.
