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.

Christian (12303) - Odense, DENMARK - MAY 7, 2006
UPDATED: MAR 4, 2009 Red brown, with a disappearing tan head. Fruity aroma, citrus hops with plum and port. Sweet malty flavour with some chocolate and coffee, and plenty of hop flavour and bitterness. Gave me a rather Belgian impression.

Benzai (12192) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - MAY 2, 2014
Bottle at -believe it or not- a tabletennisbar. Weird! Brownish color, off-white to beige head. And then I got totally distracted because the two girls I was talking to were that nice that I totally forgot about the beer. Wasn’t too bad, but not very interesting either. Well this is worthless as a rating but while drinking the beer I had a nice chat with those girls so my priorities weren’t with rating this beer..

mcberko (11940) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 30, 2011
12 oz. bottle, pours reddish dark brown with a small beige head. Aroma of toffee, dried fruits, toasted nut and caramel malt. Flavour of sweet dried fruits, some off-balanced sour notes, toasted malt and light hops. Nothing too inspiring.
