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.

UPDATED: MAR 5, 2011 Bottle. Clear, mahogany pour, topped by a small, beige head. Quite fruity nose, with pine and citrus, but it has a solid malty background. Definately malty flavor as well, but they blend with a good dash of bitterness, citrus and pine. Medium body. Bitter finish with pine and fruit. Not what I expected from a brown ale, but it sure is a nice one. Rating: 6-4-6-4-13-3.3. 070801

Bottle, courtesy of geokkjer. A dark chestnut colored beer topped by a small, dense beige head. Nutty nose with a bready touch and a pleasant hoppyness. The palate is smooth, but maybe a bit too carbonated. Medium body. There’s a little sourness in the flavor, with nuts, dried fruits and bitterness being the most dominant. There’s also a touch of coffee towards the nutty, slightly bitter end. An easy drinking beer that is slighlty better than most brown ales, but it’s sort of old fashioned and dull. A nice beer though. 110305

Bottle at The Rake, Borough Market. Ruby with lasting beige head. Lovely aroma of berry fruit and US hops. Bready. Quite bland in mouth, but finish is good. Hops on either end. Has a fair dry malt flavour in mouth which sometimes is a little bready.

MiP (13913) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - OCT 26, 2004
Bottle. Very malty aroma, hint of bonbon. Nice chestnut colour. Light brown head, disappears too quickly. Malty, sweet/sour flavour, reminding me of a slightly failed homebrew. But nice enough beer still.

Brown toffee color, vanishing brown head. A bit tight malty and cheese aroma. Medium-bodied, malty, late hoppyness. Lacks normal sweet notes of brown ale.

Oakes (13065) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 6, 2007
UPDATED: OCT 3, 2008 Chestnut brown with a garnet accent. Not convinced this hasn’t been sitting on the shelf too long - a bit tinny on the nose, with the more normal nutty malt stuff. Body is medium, bitterness about that for the style. The malts are nutty and sweet, leaning towards toffeeish and with a fair bit of richness relative to most other widely-available browns. Possible age issues aside, not a bad example.

Leighton (12650) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 23, 2009
Rich aroma of roasted malts and chocolate. Deep, dark brown color with a slightly beige head. Taste was sweet, with strong caramel notes and echoes of the aforementioned malts and chocolate. Quite delicious.

Clear dark brown with a light brown head. Aroma is sweet, roasted malt and hoppy. Flavor is medium sweet and moderate bitter. Bitter and dry finish. An excellent full bodied brown ale with a good hop bite. 160405
