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.

MiP (14562) - 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.

Theydon_Bois (14316) - 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 (14079) - 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

Oakes (13913) - 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.

bhensonb (12952) - 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.

argo0 (12498) - Washington DC, USA - JAN 22, 2003
(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. Poured a brown color with a large frothy light brown head that lasted with good lacing. Heavy toasted malt and light hop aroma. Medium body. Solid sweet toasted flavor with a light bitter finish. Good complex brew.
