Game Day Beer Review: Brooklyn Brewery's American Brown Ale
(5.6% ABV). Brooklyn Brewery's Brown Ale pours root beer brown, with a thick, two-fingered head that dissipates quickly and leaves behind only spotty lacing. The beer's smell is very mild, with really only roasted malts and a certain sweetness evident. The taste follows the nose, and Brown Ale is full of roasted malts, followed by some caramel and chocolate notes, and the beer finishes with a certain dry hoppiness. This is a very straightforward brown ale -- not my favorite, but I wouldn't turn it down, either: B.
