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%.

Bottle poured a clear brown, w/ a medium creamy beige head diminishing to a thin cap w/ thick lacing. Light roasted malt aroma. Initial flavor is a light sweet w/ a light bitter finish. Tastes are brown sugar, malt, and caramel. Light to medium body, watery mouthfeel w/ a light creaminess. It’s OK but seems a bit thin. It leaves you wanting just a bit more flavor and more body.

From a bottle. Faint roasted caramel aroma, smooth with an almost sweet flavour of toffee.

Not a bad beer. Far from my favorite brown ale but it was still alright. Wouldn’t recommend it to anyone but would have it again.

UPDATED: APR 5, 2014 12 oz can. The beer pours to a dark brown with a thick off white head. The aroma is mellow with some coffee, roasty smell. The taste is mild with a strong malt backbone & a little hop bitterness to it. Overall a good brown ale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A decent brown ale. Served from bottle to mah drankin mug. Poor lacing. Was on sale for 7.49 for a sixer, I wouldn’t buy it if it was regular price.

Dark semi sweet malts trending to caramel. Subtle hops. Substancial brew pairing with barbeque.

Bottle. Pretty thin aroma, but has notes of chocolate and caramel malt. Pours medium brown with a thin, tan head and no lacing. It tastes great. Starts with mostly caramel malt sweetness with just a pinch of chocolate. Finishes smooth with a slightly hoppy finish to cut the sweetness of the malt. One of my favorite brown ales.

At Firkin Fest, with chili peppers and cocoa nibs. Really nice balance of flavors while keeping drinkability. Well done. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

I enjoyed the flavor of it. the overall taste it was mild goes well with pretty much any kind of food. I have drank it with barbecue ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
