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.

Dark brown color. Small sized tan foamy head. Aroma is malty, nutty and sweet. A medium bodied brown ale. Malts are fruity, nutty and sweet. Hops are floral and spicy. Nice brown ale. The nutty sweetness really shines in this beer. It’s fairly sweet, but is balanced by a nice dry finish. A very flavorful brown ale. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is sweet.

On tap at Barley’s Taphouse in Asheville, NC. Reddish caramel-brown in color. very creamy mouthfeel. This also has more hops than most ales of this style that I have had. usually, I’m not a fan of brown ales because they are just too mild. This makes me take notice. Aroma is slightly fruity in addition to the fine hop bitterness. Way better than average brown ale if you like this style.

Crockett (1029) - Southampton,Ontario, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 3, 2005
Red brown with a little off white head. Very slow moving carbonation. Toasted woody malt, sappy aroma. A bit of citrus carries over. Well balanced. Strawberry. Spiced bread crust. Light caramel. Chocolate. Apple and stewed pears. Nuts and buttery. Citric finish. Good little beer. Best before August 2004, whatever.

Radek Kliber (6602) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - JAN 2, 2005
Quiet refreshing aroma: impressive amount of hopps blended with brown malts, some woody - chocolate touch. Rich yet subtle. Flavour follows path of aroma . It does not disappoint. Light ale, refreshing hop front, then some sweeter malts and at the end bitter chocolate. Full flavored, still light and refreshing. Perfect session beer.

Clear, brown, tan head. Chocolate ice cream nose with some grassy hops. The weak flavor evinces a light sweetness, chalky, metallic tinge, medium bitterness, some chocolate/carob.

nyf (2) - Aalborg, DENMARK - DEC 22, 2004 does not count
35.5 cl bottle. Purchased at Salling, Aalborg. Imported by House of Beer A/S. Color is golden brow with a decent head. Aroma is fruity and refreshing, while the taste is darker and chocolatey... Overall, it’s not what I expected and certainly not like any other brown ale I’ve had. It’s good, but needs balancing.

jmuhops (669) - Winchester, Virginia, USA - DEC 6, 2004
Pours a nice brown color with a decent head. Aroma is hoppier than I expected, with some roastiness to back it up. Flavor is nutty and chocolatey, with the hops coming in at the end. Pretty good.
