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.

Strong malt aroma and taste with chocolate notes. Full bodied but smooth. Would drink again. Brooklyn Brewery seems to get all classes right.

jookos (2003) - FINLAND - JUL 29, 2014
Bottle. Brown, clear. Brown malty, light nutty, leathery nose with some herbal, green, hoppyness. Lightish body, suprisingly light given the pretty intensive nose. Dark bready malts, some roastyness. Dryish finish. Decent brown ale. Could have more of a body, but ok still.

Buongiorgio00 (738) - - JUL 29, 2014
Decisamente al di sotto delle aspettative, molto maltata e caramellata, con uno sfondo dolce che monopolizza il sorso lasciando in secondo piano le sfumature luppolate. Così così, ma si beve volentieri.

freretoc (581) - Besançon, FRANCE - JUL 28, 2014
Bue en bouteille de 35.cl, couleur brune peu d’effervescence, mousse peu présente, une bière au bon caramélisé et grillé, une pointe de noix et de noisette en fin de bouche très agréable !

Bottle from Glug Newcastle. Strong, dark flavours, roasted coffee, a gentle sweetness. Very enjoyable after a few lighter drinks

Pra quem gosta de uma Ale essa e uma cerveja bem característica. Gosto forte mas não tão amargo... Vale a pena -

ejr (79) - Sarpsborg, NORWAY - JUL 18, 2014
Rødbrun farge med et offwhite skum. Aroma av malt, sjokolade, nøtter og mørk frukt. Smaken følger aroma med en litt sitrusaktig bitterhet i avsluttningen.

Dervock (441) - Emu plains, AUSTRALIA - JUL 18, 2014
Bottle - Pours deep reddy brown with a tan head. Burnt sugar, caramel malt, chocolate, some hops. Bittersweet up front with a lingering dry finish. mouthfeel is a bit on the thin side.

micronaut129 (241) - chalfontborotowntonbergville, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 16, 2014
Brown rubby high lights with a gig tan head. A malty and hoppy aroma is present but nothing of any standout. A very slight roasted, toffee flavor from the malts and hops present but lack any real flavor other then to adding bitterness for the malts. Feels a bit thin and watery. Overall, I think this beer does not achieve it’s stated goal as being a richer and hopper then the English version. It is a ggod beer it just tastes alittle weak. Drink well my friends
