Brooklyn Brown Ale, an American Brown Ale by Brooklyn Brewery

Share This Review

Brooklyn Brown Ale is an American Brown Ale brewed by Brooklyn Brewery, and for the purposes of this craft beer review, the ale was served in a mug from a bottle.


Pours a clear, chestnut with an inch-thick cap of cream-colored foam that reduces slowly. Generous patches of lace coat the glass.


The aroma is faint with a scent of mellow pine and caramel.


The palate has some of the expected flavors like caramel, nut, and chocolate. Finishes dryly with a herbal hop bite.


Mouthfeel has a medium body and moderate carbonation.


The presentation of the Brooklyn Brown Ale is spot on but the flavor was overly-hopped for my tastes. It’s certainly palatable but you can find better Brown Ales out there.

About the American Brown Ale

The American Brown Ale is similar to the English Brown Ale but has greater alcohol strength and more hops. But it’s still a malty brew with flavors of chocolate, caramel, and nut. The darker malt is more robust than an Amber but doesn’t reach the level of a Porter.
