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.

This was a solid beer. And the color was amazing (reddish brown). I will admit I was anxious about it being a brown ale, but the taste was so malty and delicious, I got over my misconceptions and superstitions and just enjoyed the flavor of NYC.

En forfriskende og fyldig ale, den smager lidt af lakrids og har en god sødme.

I do not wax on poetically about beer but I do know the quality of a beer once tasted. This review is not about my tastes but reinforces the numbers, which are arbitrary.

On tap at Burger Bar. Pours dark brown, clear, single finger tan coloured head that dissipates quickly. Aroma of coffee, spice, chocolate...Initial taste of nuts, coffee, chocolate, then some spice, caramel. Very nice. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Darwenus (809) - Virginia, USA - APR 18, 2016
This is a very good brown ale, I was surprised by how much I enjoyed it. It pours dark brown with a fast-fading head. The aroma is walnuts, light molasses notes, some nutmeg. The flavor is cereal and bread malts, a little bit of hop burn, and very subtle candy glaze on the finish. Good beer.

Sweet nutty aroma and taste pours a autumnal brown with a thin white head quite refreshing

Aroma is fairly mild and just barely meets the test for a Brown ale. In the flavor department it’s much better, still could be fuller, rounder, and richer. Tad over carbonated too.
