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.

Medium caramel color, standard foamy head. Pours still. For me this was too light on the malty and too heavy on the hoppy. The finish was too bitter and lasted too long. Not one of my favorite brown ales.

Nuffield (3772) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - JUN 3, 2003
This was a very enjoyable brown. Malt presence in the aroma, loads of comfort flavors like caramel. A bit of head. Very enjoyable and a decent brown on the whole. (on tap, Brooklyn Brewery)

BBB63 (6396) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - JUN 25, 2003
Brown color with some reddish hues. Average head, little lacing. Medium-bodied. Roasted, nutty, molasses, floral, blackberry and prune nose. Nicely complex for a brown ale. Malty taste with a good hoppy balance. Hearty beer. Creamy and lively mouthfeel. Very good brown ale, enjoyable, recommended.

A nicely hopped Brwon Ale. Very complex aromas of chocolate and coffee combine with the hops to yield a great drinking experience.

Deep ruby color with light tan head. Strong and rich aroma of roast-caramel with some hops. Starts nutty and with some caramel and continues to a hoppy middle with the caramel flavor lingering. Finish is also lightly hoppy, roasted, nutty, with a pleasant clean bitterness. Somewhat watery texture does not detract from my impression - fits the flavor quite well.

MaBeer1972 (1420) - Taunton, Massachusetts, USA - AUG 7, 2003
This is a nice beer! Thick frothy head out of the bottle, with a deep reddish-brown color. The complex malt flavor is quite evident. Just hoppy enough for my liking. Another great brew from Brooklyn!

Lizabeth (360) - east falmouth, Massachusetts, USA - JUL 14, 2003
Gorgeous mahogany color. Pale tan head. Decent lacing. Nose is malt and cocoa. The taste is a blend of coffee, chocolate, hazelnut, caramel and vanilla. The finish is malty, hoppy and slightly astringent. Richer and more complex than the average brown

Rich nutty aroma with a hint of hops. Root beer colored body with a nice medium-sized head. Way too hoppy for a brown ale. The malts are okay, but are overpowered by the hops. Almost a stout-like aftertaste. An interesting brew, but not a brown ale paragon.
