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.

Not the most flavorful brown ale Iíve ever had but probably the most refreshing. Brooklyn Brown Ale is stylistically pure with its light body and feel. The chocolate and subtle coffee notes are quite tasty. This beer falls just short of knocking your socks off but is successful at making a great impression.

dbhenry (87) - El Paso, Texas, USA - DEC 28, 2013
This brown ale has a good malt flavor, with good caramelization, a medium head, and medium body. The malt taste is basically balanced by the hops, but the malt lacks some of the depth and richness to make it a great beer.

Pizd (429) - Merseyside, ENGLAND - DEC 28, 2013
(Bottle): Pours dark brown with a tan head. Aroma of malt, caramel, bread, dark fruits. Flavour is quite sweet, rich malty notes and caramel dominate with some faint chocolate and coffee notes struggling to get through. Overall good but I feel like the balance is lacking.

Lanchester (182) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 24, 2013
Pours a deep rust hue topped with a thick and lasting light tan head. Aroma of caramel, toast, and earthy, resinous hop notes. Caramelized malts parallel grassy and bitter hops throughout, finishes with a lingering hop profile. Lively carbonation lends an airy feel to the brew, quite sessionable. A good one, although I tend to go more for the malt-forward versions of the style.

Bottle. This was the first Brooklyn beer I was ever aware of. Havenít had one in ages though... Until now. I really like this beer. Itís Brown, has a lovely malty body with a pleasant hoppiness throughout. Itís a cracker.
