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.

12 oz bottle. Pours dark brown, darker than most brown ales. Smells sweet and fruity... cherries, raisins. Taste is mild sweetness with a strange, slightly dry/watery finish. Not really typical of the style, a little mild for my liking, but good.

Great brown ale with a nice dark brown color and medium white head, way more hops than other brown ales ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This is part of a beer club. Had only one bottle but was decent for the price. Poured great and had a nice finish. Would do again.

Almost dirt brown in color with a good light tan head. Good aroma with a slight fruit hint. Pretty bitter brew with a bitter finish on the palate

Malty with just a hint of nut. This is a really good, no frills brown.

Dark cola colored but a quickly dissolving head. Rich aroma with a smooth chocolate caramel taste and a creamy smooth finish. Overall a very nice offering.

Unmistakable dark ale nose and a full, highly satisfying burnt ale taste -- this is a neat brew indeed. It’s so tasty and morish that I found the bottle far too small. I wish I had a double-up to follow this one up. Cheers again to Brooklyn!
