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.

fiulijn (18578) - 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!

Leighton (18075) - 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.

Dark amber, with a small brownish head. Aroma is fruity with some cirtus. Flavor brings plum, and all together this is a rather mild and ok ale.

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

harrisoni (16932) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - MAR 17, 2008
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.

Theydon_Bois (16473) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - AUG 9, 2012
Poured at home from a bottle (Dec ’11). Medium brown in colour and almost no head - looked very flat ! Smelt nutt, toffee, very light malt smell. Tasted nutty, caramel, minimal chocolate and malts. Mouthfeel - nothing special, average drinkable beer. Overall - an average beer, would not seek this out again.

Koelschtrinker (16443) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - OCT 4, 2011
Geringfügig säuerlicher Antrunk mit hopfig-malzigem Grundton. Minimal alkoholisch, das Malz wird stärker, wird durch die Herbe aber begrenzt. Süffig, in Teilen eher mild. Süffig malzig, erdig, nussig, erfrischende Säure. 7/11/11/11/11/11

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
