Brooklyn Brown Ale makes me happy. Pouring a deep mahogany colour with magnificent pepper aromas – I could hardly control my excitement!
Brooklyn Brown Ale is a mutant, evolving from a traditional English Brown Ale through an American twist – a good smashing of hops. Taking the English characters of strong, dry and subtle sweetness, these crazy yanks have made a beer that delivers a much more satisfying hit with good levels of bitterness from the hops.
The complex roasted malts make for a smooth, rich brew with great flavours of candied fruit, caramel and toffee. Black pepper characters tingle the tongue and lead into distinctive mocha notes.
Having just finished this beer as I type this last line… I can say that I want another. Wonderfully satisfying.
