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.

UPDATED: JAN 26, 2012 Bottle. The pour was a muddy dark brown with an average sized (1-2 finger) light brown foamy head the dissipated slowly and produced decent sticky lacing. The aroma was of a toasted malts, a mild resin hop and a sweet leathery yeast with notes of coffee, molasses, a bit of caramel and a light chocolate. The taste was a malty sweet with ever so light chocolate and caramel notes early on with the latter being bitter and having a strong dose of coffee with a nice hint of hops at the end. The flavor lasted a little longer that average with the hoppy coffee flavor settling nicely on the taste buds. Mouthfeel was smooth and creamy and a tad watery in texture with the body being somewhere around medium and having a moderate carbonation. Overall a really tasty Brown Ale with a slightly sweet bold middle and nice light malty, hoppy finish.

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.

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.
