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.

35cl bottle, Clear dark brown. Absolutely wonderful smell dominated by cascade hops. Thin mouthfeel. Disappointing flavour of fruit and piney hops. As it warms some faint cocoa can be detected, but no nuts,, sweet malt or caramel is found. Not what you would normally associate with a brown ale. Dry finish. Refeshing and a nose to die for, but not my favourite.

Pours a brown with a tan head. The flavor is kind of sweet with a good nutty finish. This is an ok brown ale.

I have only had this in a bottle. Sweet finish to the beer with no aftertaste. Short finish with a medium body. Soft carbonation.

On tap at Summits Wayside Tavern...As far as I’m concerned this beer sets the standard for brown ales..Excellent hopping which could be what sets it apart from the crowd...I thoroughly enjoyed this beer and will definitely have it again

Bottle. Very malty aroma, hint of bonbon. Nice chestnut colour. Light brown head, disappears too quickly. Malty, sweet/sour flavour, reminding me of a slightly failed homebrew. But nice enough beer still.

Poured dark brown with a white head. Aroma is less nutty than I expected, with a hop presence. Taste is pretty smooth... much smoother than Newcastle. Has little nut character to it at all. Has a mild sweetness. The taste still wasn’t complex enough for me, but pretty good.

MAP (1133) - Lakewood, Ohio, USA - OCT 20, 2004
Dark copper color with a thin, yet lasting, white head. Somewhat nutty malt smell with a bit of hop sweetness that has a slight grassy feel. Flavor has a bitterness unlike a strong bit of hops, but more of a vinegear feel. Im not gettn past that mouthffeel, it seems to overpower an attempt at some good malt-o-rama.

Yum yum yum. Now i am a fan of brown ales and so I really liked this one which i thought was a good model for the style. Brown color with good amount of froathy off white head. Aroma is sweet like caramel and chocolate. Flavor is sweet, chocolately and nutty with a bit of hoppy finish, but overall great balance. When first served to me i waited a bit for it to cool down and once i did it was delicious.

Thanks to Sandco for this one. I’ve never been a big fan of brown ales...just a bit too sweet for me, but this one was pretty tasty. Not too sweet, nice nutty hops.
