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.

lagermonkey (725) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - JUN 4, 2005
Pours a reddish nut brown with a thin tan head. No lace. Smells of caramel and molasses. Taste is a bit one dimensional. Caramel malt and some hops in the finsih and thatís it. No depth or richness to the malt and I just donít think the hops mesh well with it. Itís a little thin. Not too enjoyable this one. Iíll give this Brooklyn offering a miss.

I adore Brooklyn Brewery. As does most other people I know. The brown ale is -of course- no exception. Itís beautiful to look at with itís deep brown color and creamy head. And the hops and malt even eachother out in a harmonious, quite bitter, balance. Yummy! On the neck-label, thereís an invitation to come visit the brewery. I definitely will next time, Iím in NYC.

leaparsons (9109) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - MAY 21, 2005
Bottle, from "The Offie", Leicester. Dark brown and red with a bubbly beige head. Aromas are sweet and malty, bready yeast, mellow berries and hints of chocolate. Flavours are sweet cookie malts with chocolate and some roast coffee. Quite yeasty with some fruitiness. Very smooth on the palate with fairly dry hops on the finish. Better than Newky Broon.

I once lived within walking distance of the Brooklyn Brewery and for some reason this was the one that I drank the least. I drink it a little more often now, even though lots of local stores suddenly increased the price by $3. I can imagine having a bottle of it with a slice of pecan pie, as the chocolate hints would go well with the pecans.

JoeMcPhee (9004) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 17, 2005
Dark brown with ruby highlights. Thck tan head. Very malty tasting, with toast, bread, caramel and molasses appearing amongst a smorgasbord of dried fruits. Raisin, cassis, and plum. A touch of nuttiness also adds complexity. Has a touch of citrus and spicy hops rounding off the sweet malts. Great brew.

Borrrris (110) - LINDENHURST, New York, USA - MAY 16, 2005
On tap at Majorís Steakhouse. One of the finest beers I have had the pleasure to meet. Small, tan head on a mahogany body with fine carbonation. Crisp, medium body. Nutty, malty, with enough hops for chacter but not to become assertive. Not a hint of "burnt" malt harshness or heaviness either. Compiments hearty food beatifully. BUY AGAIN? Oh, yeah

Jaedde (4) - Aarhus, DENMARK - MAY 4, 2005 does not count
The American brew I ever tasted (apart from "Budweiser"). What can I say? I was possitively surprised! I have since tasted several other Brooklyn brews, but the Brown Ale is my fave.

Never got around to rating this before, because I knew I would have it again! A fine brown ale with a lovely chocolate maltiness and a nice American hoppiness. I have a feeling that you canít really go wrong with Brooklyn Brewery - Garrett Oliver knows his stuff.

Bottle. Dark brown color with a moderate off white head. Sweet malty aromas with caramel, nuts and dough. Light chocolate and nuts in the flavor. Some mild floral hops balance. A very palatable brown.
