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.

This was a solid beer. And the color was amazing (reddish brown). I will admit I was anxious about it being a brown ale, but the taste was so malty and delicious, I got over my misconceptions and superstitions and just enjoyed the flavor of NYC.

Jax Beer and Wine - Atlanta, Ga - 12 oz bottle. Pours a medium copper with a thin, but persistent white head. Faint, but fresh toffee aroma.

NachlamSie (3279) - Denver, Colorado, USA - SEP 16, 2005
bottle. Pours a rich, deep brown with a full lasting head. There’s a sweet yeasty aroma with some hops. The flavor is fairly robust for a brown with a good spicy character and a small chocolate roast. Quite a tasty brown, indeed.

Sigmund (6719) - Tau, NORWAY - SEP 14, 2005
355 ml bottle, bought in Denmark. Deep brown colour, large light tan head. Pleasant aroma of dark and dried fruits and caramel, hints of chocolate, tobacco, oak and leather. Nice malty and nutty flavour with some caramel but not too sweet, well balanced with sufficient hops, hints of spices. Easy drinking, refreshing, decent mouthfeel. Moreish.

Pretty good, though a bit strong for the style (not a problem in my opinion). Good color and good balance of flavors.
