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.

One of the great examples of a brown ale. This beer has plenty of dark flavors and a medium body. In my mind a brown should be the gap between an amber ale and a stout. This beer falls right where it should.

This is a very good brown ale, I was surprised by how much I enjoyed it. It pours dark brown with a fast-fading head. The aroma is walnuts, light molasses notes, some nutmeg. The flavor is cereal and bread malts, a little bit of hop burn, and very subtle candy glaze on the finish. Good beer.

Aroma is fairly mild and just barely meets the test for a Brown ale. In the flavor department it’s much better, still could be fuller, rounder, and richer. Tad over carbonated too.
