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.

kermis (4938) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JUN 9, 2014
Bottle at the American style bar/restaurant in Copenhagen airport. Pours clear brown with a small tan head. Aroma of malt, caramel, light roast and some overripe dark fruit. Flavour is over moderate sweet and moderate bitter. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation.

alex_alkis (247) - 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.

Pours dark brown with small head. Hoppy aroma of pine, citrus, caramel. Fairly low bitterness, good balance between malt and hops. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

vipinvelp (2130) - Velp, NETHERLANDS - MAY 27, 2014
Clear dark ruby red/brown with small light brown foam head. Aroma is caramel, some floral. Taste is like any other brown, nothing outstanding. Short aftertaste. (Copenhagen 201405)

Jorn69 (905) - Ängelholm, SWEDEN - MAY 24, 2014
Flaska @ Hard Rock Café, Köpenhamn. Maltig och en aning humlig, karamell, nötter, ganska hög sötma, medelbeska. Avslutningen är besk och något torr med fruktiga toner.

Sizzler80 (447) - Dublin, IRELAND - MAY 20, 2014
Brown pour with a medium white head. Nut, chocolate, biscuit, slight citrus, smell of damp, wet cardboard, hint of toffee. Strong malty backbone with soft carbonation. I’m not a huge fan of the style, but can appreciate good ingredients and this is a good beer.

edsspoon (370) - Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - MAY 19, 2014
Bottle - Deep ruby red with a big light brown head which gradually fades to a ring, barely any lacing. Aroma is very distinctly coffee and cocoa, some dark fruit and brown sugar. Taste is cocoa, bitterness, chocolate with some coffee coming out towards the end - some brown sugar and very lightly roasted flavour. Medium to strong sweetness and a medium bitterness. Unfortunately the body feels a bit thin.

PapaVillum (424) - Valby, DENMARK - MAY 18, 2014
355 ml / 35,5 cl, flaske, 5,6 % ABV, købt i Netto på Roskildevej i Valby, 18. maj 2014. Mørkebrun med rødbrune nuancer og en fin lille moccafarvet skumtop på knap én cm. Sidstnævnte svinder til kun at ligge i kanten og overfladen. Aromaen er dejligt sødlig og præget af kaffe og chokolade. Nogle brændte maltnoter er der også plads til. En rigtig Brown Ale, hvis sådan én findes. Den lidt bitter/sure smag dominerer i starten. Dernæst kommer der lidt chokolade sødme sammen med maltbitterheden, og tilsidst er der igen den lidt sure smag i samspil med det bitre. Kuldioxid indholdet i brygget virker en anelse nedjusteret i.f.t. medium. Stuetemperaturen gør virkelig noget for dette bryg, som åbner sig fint under den stigende temperatur. Én af de klart bedste Brown Ale's, jeg har smagt.

danlo (1131) - Darlington, Durham, ENGLAND - MAY 14, 2014
355ml bottle. Brown reddish tinged colour, foam beige head and aroma of malt, roasty, toffee, nutty, chocolate. Taste is sweetish malty, with toffee, raisins, cola, chocolate powder, and nutty, lingering bitterness. Slightly creamy mouthfeel, medium bodied, medium carbonation, dry nutty bitter finish. Quite drinkable.
