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.

As with most of my other experiences with Brooklyn beers, I had this at the brewery. It was quite tasty, I was a bit surprised because I had never heard may outstanding ratings for it. Nice maltiness and full bodied flavor. I could drink it all night.

UPDATED: MAY 10, 2003 One of the better offerings in my humble opinion from a great Eastern brewery, and second only to their Double Chocolate Stout in my heart and on my master list for this brewery. A deep unblurred sangrineous color on the pour, the head portly in size, spumescent in texture, a winsome light beige in color and a thick sticky sheet of lace to conceal the glass. The nose is sweet malt, crisp and slightly floral, a real treat for the old schnozzle with a rich malt start that is somewhat sweet, and the top fair to middling in feel. Finish has a perky acidic bite, the hops pounce on your palate, like the Brooklyn Dodgers did the Yankees? Quite dry aftertaste and a real sweetheart of a beer and a real keeper in my book.

legion242 (2201) - Richardson, Texas, USA - DEC 18, 2001
True leather brown in color; heavy to medium head with impressive lace. This brown is full of muscle. Lots of malt. Good mouthfeel. Good body, good staying power.

Good brown ale. Could be a bit more flavourful but I can’t really knock it/

A decent brown ale - nice hop bite & sweetness. Not real distinctive though.

A malty brown ale, slightly sweet. one of the better American vrowns (rogue is the best)

MilkmanDan (1943) - Eagan, Minnesota, USA - AUG 20, 2001
The least impressive of Brooklyn’s offerings that I’ve tried so far. Some malt, some hops, just nothing distinctive.

Very thin, a little too bitter for a brown ale. Poor balance, but a nice aroma and initial malt.
