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.

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 (13600) - 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.

Koelschtrinker (13119) - 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

Theydon_Bois (12925) - 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.

bhensonb (12596) - Woodland, California, USA - MAR 18, 2008
Aroma is not typical. It’s smooth roasted caramel with grassy or floral hop. Very dark garnet color with a smeary white film for head. Full bodied with mild and creamy carbonation. Flavor is roasted caramel with floral sort of hop. It’s a bit darkly bready, but not overly sweet. Sort of an overachieving Newcastle Brown. Character it’s got. The finish is much as the beginning. This ale is arguably in a class by itself.

(draft) Clear brown-red with small tan head. Aroma is strong malty, caramel, mildly sweet, some roastiness. Tastewise, moderately sweet, very smooth with solid roasted malts and some caramel. Finishes with a mild bitterness. Very good session beer.

(Bottle, BB 02/07) Pours a mahogany body with a moderate beige head. Aroma of cola, toastiness, and caramel. Flavor of nuts, dark malt, caramel, and toastiness. An easy drinker.
