COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Moose Drool is our Brown Ale. Far and away the best selling beer brewed in Montana, Moose Drool is chocolate brown in color with a creamy texture. Our brown ale is a malty beer with just enough hop presence to keep it from being too sweet. The aroma also mostly comes from the malt with a hint of spiciness being added by the hops. Moose Drool is brewed with pale, caramel, chocolate, and whole black malts; and Kent Goldings, Liberty, and Willamette hops. It has an original gravity of 13 degrees Plato, and is 4.2% alcohol by weight, 5.3% by volume.
Note: ABV went down to 5.1%.

I had this from a longneck bottle. The aroma is distinctive, balanced, and malty. The flavor is malt forward, medium bodied, and the British hops shine. The modest bittering is lovely and it is the balanced achieved by that which makes this an exceptional beer.

Bottle. It poured a translucent brown with a small head into a shaker glass. Aroma was roasted malt with a bit of dark chocolate/coffee flavoring. It was easy to drink and fairly well balanced.

Moose Drool is a nearly clear red brown beer with a very thin and fine head of small white bubbles. Nose is sweet caramalized malt. A faint hop presence is behind the brown sugar goodness. Taste is lightly sweet and a bit of creamy earthy toasted malt on the back end. THe body is just sort of flat, but otherwise a very surprising and complex beer.

Pours dark brown. Brown ale that is very easy to drink, but lacking depth, complexity and umpf (abv).

Taste: lightly sweet and roasty initial flavor and finish with short duration. Palate: medium bodied with watery texture and flat carbonation. Overall: really good brown ale.

Bottle in LT. Pours light brown with a tan head. Caramel and toffee on the nose with some spice and hops. Thin amount of toffee and caramel dominate the flavor with a small hop presence. Some metallic notes present as well. Does not measure up to other browns.

Can, Yellowstone Park. APPEARANCE ? a copper tinted brown, with healthy foamy head. NOSE ? very little. I can pull slight malt out of it when I?m sniffing with intensity. FLAVOR ? slight bit of grassy hop bitterness, limited malt sweetness I normally associate with a brown ale.
