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.

malvrich (57) - durham, North Carolina, USA - MAR 6, 2015
A: Clear mahogany/prune juice color with a short tan head. Short duration. Spotty lace. S: Chocolate malt and Dr Pepper. T: Less chocolaty and more hop bitterness than the nose would imply. Less Dr. Pepper and more Coke. Nice Roast flavor. Refreshing taste but a bit thin. Actually could use a little sweetness. M: Tingly carbonation and light body for the style. Easy drinking though with just a bit of residual stickiness. O: Good, refreshing and tasty but a bit lacking in flavor complexity. Overall I can name several browns I like at least as much for the same price. Worth a try but donít overthink it.

rarbring (1646) - LinkŲping, SWEDEN - FEB 20, 2015
Aroma: The smell is sweet, brown sugar, fudge, nut caramel, some fruity aromas, red forest fruits.
Appearance: The beer is clear brown red, a tan head that settles rather quickly but leaves some lacing.
Taste: The taste starts with a brown sugar note, some nut fudge, then lingonberries and cherry seeds.
Palate: Medium high carbonation, small intense bubbles, the fluid is fresh and smooth but has a lingering dryness at the end.
Overall: Quite well balanced, and not too sweet - thats nice. Enjoyed at Grills in Stockholm.
Note: Bottle Reviewed 2011-02-16.

Towey1989 (136) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 7, 2015
Bottle. Pours a clear ruby brown colour with a thin beige head. Aroma of roasted malt, caramel, dark fruits and a little smokiness. Taste is again, roasted malt and caramel, which dominates. Medium bodied and bittersweet. Delicate floral hops in the finish. Nice but not exciting.
