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.

Xavalias (154) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 20, 2014
Bottle from Føtex, Copenhagen. Pours brown very fizzy with thin beige head getting bigger and creamier after a few minutes. Taste is sweet with caramel, chocolate and roasted malts aroma. Easy to drink.

Good, not great brown ale. Very standard. Caramel, malty and smooth. I liked it, but wouldn’t be my first choice for the style.

johnnnniee (2312) - Bedford, New Hampshire, USA - JUN 13, 2014
Bottle from Harvest Market. Pours a deep reddish brown color with a decent sized bubbly off white head that slowly dissipates to a cap. Aromas of caramel and brown sugar with a hint of chocolate and a bit of minty earthy hops to balance. The flavor is malty sweet with just enough earthy hop flavor to balance. Nice malts caramel and hints of chocolate round this one out nicely. Medium body and level of carbonation. Its been a while since I’ve had a brown ale, but this one is quite serviceable.

Dark coffee color with a bit of red nuance. Classic brown ale aroma and nuance. A bit of citric aftertaste. Quite weak otherwise. Is a good brown ale but not much more.

alex_alkis (294) - SWEDEN - JUN 7, 2014
Nice and beautiful almost Coca Cola-like color. The taste is malty and bitter. It’s a pity that this kind of good beer lacks body and fullness.
