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.

Another impressive brew from Brooklyn. Cascade/centennial hop aroma, a little peppery and alcoholic. Very dark brown, but you can see through it. Khaki head that clings to the glass. Lots of dry dark malt, without the sweetness that most browns have. Complex and balanced, warming. Mouthy, with a lingering, biscuity dark malt and hop finish.

daalamar (405) - new albany, Indiana, USA - NOV 29, 2002
According to the "best before" date this beer isnít itís best because the date ran out last month. Very weak aroma, mostly malty with faint hop presance. Flavor is Strong chocolate, black malts, only the faintest of hop in the finish. Very mellow from start to finish.

CaptainCougar (7129) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - NOV 16, 2002
Dark brown with copper hues and a robust creamy head. Big fresh hop aroma and mixed with lots of malt flavor. Slight roasted aftertaste. There is a lot of flavor in the body, but it could be more balanced. Overall, a very good brwon ale though.

SudsMaster (68) - Denville, New Jersey, USA - OCT 29, 2002
Highly Reccommend this brown ale. Malty blend gives it a great flavor to go with some hop, and overall a solid brew.

UnionMade (621) - Connecticut, USA - OCT 25, 2002
Not a bad brown ale. I thought it was too hoppy, but Iím not terribly familiar with the american version of the style. Medium bodied and effervescent. The bottle frothed over when I popped the cap. I donít care for heavily carbonated beers, but the flavor showed through. I enjoyed it.

Vac (2445) - San Diego, California, USA - OCT 24, 2002
Dark brown color with a medium thick tan creamy head. The aroma is sweet andmalty with a hint of caramel and alcohol. Slightly sweet malt falvor with a hint of coffee. This brown ale reminds me more of a porter or stout than a brown ale. the body is relatively heavy and soda like on the tongue.

daboskabouter (1470) - Fergus, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 15, 2002
Dark red color, thick tan head. Fresh nose of citrus, roast, and sweet malt. Body is spritzy with a good clean hop bite, semi-sweet maltiness and notes of tin. Nicely balanced brown ale.

UPDATED: MAY 21, 2003 A fairly hoppy brown that has tons of chocolate malt flavor (and an incredible aroma!). It's darker than a lot of browns and quite flavorful. There is definite nut presence here that you're bound to enjoy. A solid, honest brown. Re-rate: Wow! As good as ever. Stands tall as an utterly delicious brown ale. Not as much bitterness as I had tasted before. Oddly, most stores in NYC don't carry this, but instead carry other lesser Brooklyn beers (ie. Brooklyn Lager).
