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.

Spiesy (2338) - Sydney, Greater London, AUSTRALIA - JAN 7, 2004
Draught, at the The Blind Tiger, NY.</br> The meeting of Spiesy and AustinPowers, a top five hero. Whilst waiting only a few minutes, I helped myself to some quality brews. This was a lovely start. Brown with a nice light brown head. Big forward malty aroma lifting from the head. Vanilla, vanilla, vanilla, lovely!! Good long palate as well. After a few choppy brews at the Heartland Brewery I sure was good to be back amongst it again. Bless you Mr. Powers.

wunderbier (1434) - Tampere, FINLAND - JAN 5, 2004
12 oz bottle. Tall, frothy, off-white head is slowly diminishing and sits on a deep brown body. Nutty, toasted light bread malt (M); spicey, citrus hops (M); heavily sweet flavor becomes a moderately sweet, moderately bitter finish. Medium-heavy body, creamy texture, soft carbonation. The bottom line is: rockin'.

Dorwart (2359) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - JAN 4, 2004
Decent head with good carbonation. Settles to a thin light tan head. Great aroma. Rich and malty with some molasses and roasted grains. Color is a dark red/brown in color. Big hops flavor which is somewhat hidden in the aroma. Slight malt also. Finishes with a toasty sweetness that is very good. Pretty well balanced beer. A very good brown ale.

Hildigöltur (5104) - København, DENMARK - DEC 29, 2003
Brown coloured with nice head. Pleasant cascade aroma. The flavour is malty with a nice hoppy and citrusy finish. Well balanced.

amx1970390 (480) - Southampton, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 28, 2003
Pours a very dark brown, sweet smell. Small, velvety head. Tastes almost like a Old Ale, strong, complex roasted notes. Hop finish. A really good beer.

UNCCTF (477) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - DEC 27, 2003
Rating #150!!! Mahogany coloring with a small off-white head. A very nice ale with a roasted mouthfeel perfect for a brown. Very good stuff.

haddon90 (1429) - Denver, Colorado, USA - DEC 24, 2003
Deep brown color with a thick creamy tan head. Roasted nuts spring from the glass, and some malt linger as well. Smooth, complex taste. Dry, caramel, malt, nuts, among other things. From the Brown Ale's that I've had, this is my favorite so far!!

fiulijn (14298) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 18, 2003
Brown-amber color. Fizzy aroma, white sugar (candy floss), malt, metallic, lightly hoppy. Quite dry, light mouthfeel, with a lot of caramel, some roasted malts and nuts, metallic. Average palate. Poor, IMO.
A big thank to Jens (Ungstrup), Jacob (Lövenlund) and Rasmus (Nørrebro Bryghus) for all the effort!

pjk33 (389) - Sligo - Curllsville Heights, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 15, 2003
UPDATED: JAN 5, 2004 Bottle. Pours a big head and the head retains pretty well with good thick lacing. Nose is actually pretty hoppy (maybe heavy on the Cascade hops?) with some sweet aroma, but not able to pinpoint what the sweet scent is. No body to this one. Those that call this a creamy texture are crazy. Watery and sort of blah with a sour and tart unpleasantly bitter finish. This is not a very good brown ale. It gets a little better as it warms (or my palate has been numbed). If you drink this one, try it at warmer temps. Completely overrated.
