Brooklyn Brown Ale

Brooklyn Brewery was started in 1987 by former Associated Press correspondent Steve Hindy and former Chemical Bank lending officer Tom Potter. The label design and company logo were created by the world renowned designer, Milton Glaser, best known for the 'I Love NY' logo.
Style Brown and Amber Ale
Country American Beers
ABV 5.60%
Serving Temp 10 to 12°C
Bottle Size 355ml
Award-winning and the original, Brooklyn’s Brown Ale is full-flavoured and smooth. This brown ale combines aspects of a Northern English brown ale with Southern English ones and then tops it off with a firm American hop character. Complex malt flavours of caramel, chocolate, coffee, and roastiness give a complex richness while delicate hop aromas and bitterness provide a nice balance. This brown ale is easy drinking and classically Brooklyn.

  • Brown Ale Beauty

    Review by Tworopes

    This is another great beer from Brooklyn! Nice strong roasted malt and nutty/coffee flavours with a great bittersweet finish. (Posted on 19/08/2016)

  • Good example

    Review by Vauban

    Nice and nutty - classic US brown ale. A bit fizzy for my taste, but good all the same. (Posted on 13/08/2016)

  • Rich!

    Review by Katy Skywalker

    Rich, malty flavour with hints of chocolate, dark fruit and coffee and a moderately bitter finish. (Posted on 26/07/2016)

  • One of the best Brown Ales

    Review by Mark T

    Agree with previous review - this is the best Brooklyn Brewery product. It is a brown ale that has satisfying malty and bitter flavours making it a very pleasant drink (Posted on 23/06/2016)

  • Nutty Perfection

    Review by Jack

    Now my favourite Brooklyn Brewery product - intense yet delightful flavours made this an incredibly easy drink. It wasn't like other craft beers where I felt one would have been enough - this is something you could drink all night. (Posted on 20/05/2016)

  • Newcy!

    Review by Abdyman

    Like a much better Newcy Brown. Lovely malty sweet taste, another great beer from Brooklyn. (Posted on 11/04/2016)

  • I am a convert to Brown Ale

    Review by Ninja Terrier

    I have had a few of the Brooklyn Breweries offers now and this is the best yet. It offers everything a brown ale should then up the flavours to a new level. This is truly a great Brown ale. (Posted on 17/03/2016)

  • Lovely brown ale

    Review by Jo

    Chocolatey aroma straightaway with a strong coffee taste and a hint of caramel. Rather smooth, could easily drink more than one! (Posted on 23/01/2016)

  • Dark and interesting.

    Review by Katy Skywalker

    Rich, malty, chocolaty aroma with a hint of coffee. Also rich, malty flavour with hints of chocolate, dark fruit and coffee and a moderately bitter finish. (Posted on 09/12/2015)

  • Yum.

    Review by Tipple

    A sweeter, maltier version of Newcastle Brown.
    Better than that makes it sound. (Posted on 21/10/2015)

  • 3,000 miles West of Newscastle

    Review by Tipple

    Not a facsimile of Newcastle Brown, more a reimagining. It's sweeter, and there's more a sense of roast - those chocolatey/coffee notes (although it's by no means a stout).
    Dare I say it... it's better? Yes. Yes it is. (Posted on 21/10/2015)

  • Brooklyn's Nut Gone Beer

    Review by Llamaman

    As the title of the review suggests, nuttiness is the order of the day here. Another reviewer has suggested breadiness and I'll not disagree.
    The malt is allowed to take centre stage here, so a nice change from the hop-led beers of the zeitgeist.
    It disappeared rather quickly so it must be doing something right. (Posted on 20/10/2015)

  • A nice alternative

    Review by palerich

    Was a good choice to contrast my usual pale ale orders. Very flavoursome. Worth a try, though I probably prefer its UK cousins when it comes to darker beer, (Posted on 16/10/2015)

    Without a doubt brooklyns best beer. Malty and full bodied ale. (Posted on 27/02/2015)

  • Yankee Beer For Lads From The Toon

    Review by Ay Pee Horne

    An American influenced Newcastle Brown. Sweeter, maltier and with a more roasted profile than the British offering. Not one for a warm Summer day, but delicious at this time of year. (Posted on 22/01/2015)
