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.

Dark garnet hue. Small beige head. Sweet malt aromas. Light sweet start, nuttiness is nice in the middle. Roasted grain, coffee, caramel. Awesome bitterness and hops in the finish. A really well balanced brew. One of my favorite browns.

UPDATED: MAR 22, 2009 Bottle... This beer rocks!... I loved this brown ale. Very malty, but also well hopped. Well balanced. I dig brown ale and this one did not disappoint. One of my favorite brown ales!

A good brown ale. Not terribly spectacular, but solid. Nice color, texture and head. Good aroma. Nice malty flavor through the aftertaste.

Davhgbrew (945) - Seattle, Washington, USA - SEP 5, 2002
Highly carbonated, very hoppy brown. This one had nice consistency to it, but strangely overhopped for a brown(not that I minded). I have another bottle of this, so I’ll give it another shot.

muzzlehatch (4424) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - SEP 2, 2002
Bottled. Big rocky thick-bubbled head, long-lasting with some lacing. A lovely pint. Nose is rather weak; expected hazelnut notes, no hops, soft sweet malt. Flavor mostly sweet, a little bit of creeping sourness though, medium body, overall just not exciting or interesting in any way. Some chocolate, some nuts; just not a lot, nothing overpowering or even sit-up-and-take-notice. Ehhhh.

UPDATED: FEB 22, 2003 Clear, deep copper/red. Nice head and decent lace. Complex nose of chocolate, almonds, caramel, bit of hop acidity, pine, perfume and a flourish of mild malts. Something else in aroma i cant place. Nice medium-full, creamy body. Tasty, rich and deep malts, caramel, chocolate on the the palate making it a moderatly sweet tasting beer. The perfect amount of hops make this a very good and balanced brew. And for $6 a sixer, economically feasible as well:-) Must let this badboy warm up.

VENOM (941) - Connecticut, USA - AUG 27, 2002
Clear amber with deep copper hues. Brown it ain’t. Small, tightly packed tan foam. Easy carbonation. Aroma of bread dough, chocolate, caramel and wisps of grass and pine. Initially light and delicate. Moderately carbonated mouthfeel. Nicely malted with deep notes of chocolate, caramel, dark bread and hints of astringent roasted malts. Medium body. Hops build after the sip and through to the malty aftertaste. Solid resinous hop burps are surprising. Caramelized sweetness is handily balanced. Finishes hoppier with grass and pine notes intermingling with toffee coated walnut skins. Solid version, though on draft the hoppiness is more explosive.
