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.

Edmoe (241) - Orlando, Florida, USA - JAN 13, 2008
Mahogany color. Decent head and lacing. Aroma is a malty sweetness with some hoppiness. Flavor is a very nice balance between sweet and hoppiness. Has a decent mouthfeel without any astringency I often find in brown ales. A very good beer that is inexpensive. This might just become one of my standard session beers.

Mahogany red color with a nice tan head. Quite sweet malty aroma with burnt sugar and chocolate. Slightly roasted malt flavor with nutty chocolate hints. Smooth finish with a hint of coffe and short aftertaste. Very drinkable with a light mouthfeel.

Alexus (241) - Stavanger, NORWAY - MAR 26, 2012
330ml bottle. Deep brown with amber highlights. Creamy head. Aromas of roasted malts, chocolate, dark dried fruits and some hops. Somewhat roasty flavors, again some chocolate, dried fruits and a caramel. Medium body. It’s a good brown ale...

Wischylini (241) - Grimstad, NORWAY - SEP 30, 2013
Pours a very dark brown with a thin sand-coloured head that disappeared fairly quick. The aroma is malty, nutty, and somewhat chocolate-like, and the hops are very ’floral’ with some rose-like hints. The taste is fairly sweet and there’s an interesting sour almost lactic tinge to the taste. Definitely liked it.

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

UnsofistaCat (241) - Garden City, Michigan, USA - JUN 14, 2005
Very dark amber color. Nice sweet floral nose. Hoppy compared to English brown ales. This is no New Castle. Flavor a little thin and a little less malty then I expected. Just a tad more sour then I expected as well. On the back end, I picked up some classic brown ale sweetness. Not sure its hopped exactly right for my liking. Not bad though.

BINGEBOT (240) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 4, 2007
On tap at the Clarke Street Ale House. Brown and nutty beer. Sweet with a very smooth chocolate, smoky and woody aftertaste. Complex and nice, solid flavour through and through.

eve (240) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - FEB 25, 2005
Rich golden brown color, aroma of dried fruit sprinkled in just a little brown sugar and baked. Flavor remarkably more balanced than I would guess from the sweet aroma, self-possessed hop underpinnings to balance the nutty toffee flavor.
