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.

yespr (32294) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - OCT 8, 2007
35.5 cL bottle. Pours deep brown with a hazzlenut brown hue, creamy off-white head. Sweet fruity aroma with a mild roasted malt beneath. Light to medium bodied which is in contrast to the quite flavourful experience that follows. Starts dark roasted with a clear acidity before a more breadish malt note turns up. It does however never get to the point that the flavour shows the sweetness that seems present in the aroma, it rather stays acidic for then to turn into a more bitter and hoppy finish showing some flavour smoothness along the way: caramel, chocolate and a whiff of vanilla. Has a slight liqourice edge in the finish. Clearly the most hoppy brown ale I’ve had. Nice.

Ungstrup (29850) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAR 20, 2003
A dark brown, almost too dark to look thru, beer with a nice light brown head. The aroma is very sweet - like most Brooklyn brews. The flavor is acidic, sweet at first, but then the chocolate, smoke, dryness, and woodiness hits you - great flavor. OK palate - great at first and end - but a little weak in the middle.

Papsoe (25083) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAR 16, 2005
(Bottle 35,5 cl) Dark amber rather than mahogany as claimed on the neck label. Filtered and clear with a light brownish head. Very malty and extremely aromatic from the excellent hops in use. Notes of nuts and caramel and a touch of vanilla. Much more fullbodied than British counterparts. Pretty high carbonation.

Brown colour with a small white head. Aroma of berries, malt and a bit coffee. Taste of spices, berries, malt and coffee, with a slight bitter aftertaste. Nice brown ale.

omhper (19975) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - MAY 4, 2006
UPDATED: JUN 1, 2006 Cask conditioned at Oliver Twist, Stockholm. Clear dark brown. Evident roasty malt aroma. Medium sweet with rounded mouthfeel and firm malt character. It’s dominated by the roasty malt, but there are hints of licorice and perfumy hops as well. Medium bitterness.

Clear red - brown beer. Small pale tan head. Softish and semi dry palate. A little creamy malt. Trace of estery bubblegum. A little insipid hop before the dry finish.

fiulijn (15360) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 18, 2003
Brown-amber color. Fizzy aroma, white sugar (candy floss), malt, metallic, lightly hoppy. Quite dry, light mouthfeel, with a lot of caramel, some roasted malts and nuts, metallic. Average palate. Poor, IMO.
A big thank to Jens (Ungstrup), Jacob (Lövenlund) and Rasmus (Nørrebro Bryghus) for all the effort!
