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 is another very solid brown ale. A little on the dark side for a brown ale, but good flavor and texture make it a great 1st beer.

very complex, but a bit over-bearing, love the aroma created by the dry-hopping

A decent dark beer that does a good job of mixing coffee and chocolate flavors. Excellent cost-quality ratio.

I was pleased with this beer. Dark with a nice mild chocolate that is hidden a bit by the hops. Good head and nice lace on it. Good stuff and one that I will have when the opportunity arises.

I had this a couple months after the reccomended date on the bottle, I dont know how much that matters. Has a nice malty aroma but its a little weak. The flavor is similar, has some good hints of flavor, but as a whole its rather weak and plain.

A gem in the hell hole that is Lewisburg PA and the Shangri-La camp site. rich malty aroma, burgundy color, incredibly complex malt taste. hops work brilliantly. One of the best browns I can think of. I got so excited about this beer that i passed out with a pizza box on top of me.

This beer tasted OK at best. I didnít think there was heavy hopping for aroma or flavor at all. Could have used a maltier mouthfeel and taste to match the aroma. Still a drinkable brew - it grew on me as I went through a six pack over a week or so.

Itís been awhile since Iíve had this... and I was at a great Jazz show in NYC, but I believe the beer was good too. Slight metallic taste was hidden by hops and malt. Pretty decent.

Probably the best brown ale Iíve had yet, although I still need to try boyne river. Awesome appearance of dark brown and nice tan head which lasts and sticks the the sides of the glass. Extremely smooth and goes down so easy. Not highly hopped and not too sweet. You have to get this fresh!- I have had this when it was a couple months past the sell- by date and it wasnt good at all- kinda had a metallic taste. But when fresh- it is smooth and easy to drink. Im going to have another right now.
