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.

A very plesant and good drinking brown ale. Extemely dark pour with a reddish hue. Little to no head (less than a centimeter), slightly methol in aroma. Light cream with a slightly "alcohol" finish. Light lacing. A slight malt detectable, more towards the sweet. Not too much on the hops detected, but maybe itís an old bottle. Consistent with other Brookyln brews. (Bottle 2/28/2006)

malvrich (250) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - MAR 6, 2015
A: Clear mahogany/prune juice color with a short tan head. Short duration. Spotty lace. S: Chocolate malt and Dr Pepper. T: Less chocolaty and more hop bitterness than the nose would imply. Less Dr. Pepper and more Coke. Nice Roast flavor. Refreshing taste but a bit thin. Actually could use a little sweetness. M: Tingly carbonation and light body for the style. Easy drinking though with just a bit of residual stickiness. O: Good, refreshing and tasty but a bit lacking in flavor complexity. Overall I can name several browns I like at least as much for the same price. Worth a try but donít overthink it.

lcwakshul (244) - Chester, Maryland, USA - DEC 4, 2010
12 oz. bottle. Dark brown pour with moderate tan head. Nice malty aroma. Was not expecting the heavy hops in this brown ale. Not bad, but a little too bitter for my tastes.

JamesD (243) - Centreville, Virginia, USA - SEP 24, 2007
A very malty brew. The hops and the esters combine to produce and clean, crisp brew with a creamy palate. At its usual price, itís a very good deal.

Alexus (242) - 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. Itís a good brown ale...

Dark reddish brown pour. Choclatey malt flavor with a bit of hops bitterness. A decent everyday beer.

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.

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.

Steely (241) - , SWEDEN - OCT 4, 2008
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.
