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.

The label says "mahoghany" and I must agree. Disappointed with the lack of head, but it's still a good looking beer. Ever so slighty overbalanced towards the hops; I was getting a nice astringency but not too much nutty sweetness. Medium body, solid finish. It's a hit.

Traditional garnet red, deep auburn pour of a brown ale. Very nice lacing. I smell flowers, but not much else. I hope it doesn't taste like flowers. Hmmm, actually it doesn't taste like much initially. Kind of acidic on my tongue, with a mild nutty, malty finish. I guess I am not really impressed. I enjoyed the Smutty Nose brown a lot more.

DYCSoccer17 (3477) - Woodland, California, USA - AUG 31, 2003
Pours a transparent ruby mahogany with a very mild off-white head that laces beautifully. Nose is of some malt and maybe some chocolate/coffee--very mild nose, though. Start is pretty carbonated and without too much tase. Can taste a subtle coffee/chocolate malt at the end, but all in all it seems pretty tasteless. For the style, this is not abnormal, but I like my browns to have a little more character.

wnp22 (685) - Toronto (Roncesvalles Village), Ontario, CANADA - AUG 26, 2003
Tasted in DC at RFD. Deep brown, small white head. Slightly Reddish hue. Floral well hopped scent. Nice spice undertones. Caramel, molassis sweet taste. Slight floral hop scent and taste. Slightly (but ever so) slightly bitter finish.

DEbeer (192) - West Virginia, USA - AUG 22, 2003
This beer is well balanced. I was pleased with the low hop profile and the easy finish. I think that it could be a little richer and maybe a little nuttier. The bottle I have is a little old, though, so fresh it may be much better.

Has a dark brown appearence and a toasty flavor like Bass Ale, only richer with a dry finish. Good brew!

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!

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.

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

BtownBrewer (91) - Belchertown, Massachusetts, USA - JUL 6, 2003
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.
