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.

Theydon_Bois (10386) - 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.
