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%.

12 oz bottle from awaller05. Thanks Andy!

Moose Drool Brown Ale is a dark brown amber color and clear. It has a small foamy tan head that disipates quickly. The aroma is dark and malty with hints of chocolate malt. There is also a nice roasted malt/weak coffee taste. Some more roastiness and a light bitterness appears in the finish to balance this beer out. This beer has an average amount of carbonation. It is pretty smooth on the palate and very drinkable. Overall Moose Drool is a nicely done brown ale and probably one of the better ones out there. I liked the beer and really enjoyed the label (the newer label has a picture of a moose standing in a lake with a waterfall of drool coming from its mouth)...

Dark Mohagony color with a thick Tan Head. Decent lacing and head retention. Not very much aroma at first but as it warmed Earthy Roasted tones arose. Taste had a mild flavor of Roasted Malts but needs more. Warm and smooth going down. Easily drinkable

Treephiend (58) - New York, New York, USA - JAN 6, 2007
TAP - A good ale. Nothing too stand out but nothing at all objectionable. I was hoping for some more flavor out of this one, it seemed a little subdued, nothing wrong with that though. A solid choice for sure.

0o9i (439) - Reno, Nevada, USA - JAN 4, 2007
Tap @ Sparky’s. $2 pints BOT month. Sweet deal. Anyways, a clear, ruby-walnut color with a tan head, no lace. Aroma is malty. Body is medium, carb is nothing special, but decent. Flavor is dark fruits: olive, prune, lots of malts. The olive threw me off pretty bad "WTF is that!?" That’s new. Sessionable, but not a favorite.

shendrix (478) - Waukesha, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 30, 2006
A pretty good ale. Smooth and clean, pouring amber with a moderate head, this brew blends a measure of walnut in the background with lightly caramelled flavor and a bit of vanilla--just a bit--balanced out with a pleasantly hoppy mouthfeel. More complex than most bottled ales.

MrBendo (1064) - Swedesboro, New Jersey, USA - DEC 29, 2006
Clear reddish-brown with a large head. Head dissipates at a medium to fast rate leaving very little lace.
Aroma of toasted grains and nuts, roasted malts and some hops. Medium/heavy body, moderately creamy texture. Medium finish - roasted malt.

Bottle from a gift pack: Aroma is sweet molasses. Dark amber-brown with burgandy hues and a small beige head. Flavor starts malty with caramel and cocoa followed by a little hop spicyness and a light dry bitter finish. Light to medium bodied and watery with lively carbonation.

Big Sky Moose Drool Brown Ale 12 oz bottle Moderate pour in an English Pint Recent brewing, drooled over 12/06 Poured a clear red brown with an average fizzy off white mostly diminishing head. Smelt of moderate molasses, toasted grain, caramel, light grassy and lemony hops. Taste was upfront moderate sweet caramel and bitter toasted grain and bittersweet oranges followed by more of the same, only a bit more bitter and roasted on a long finish. Palate was light to medium bodied, soft and watery to slightly dry finish, lively carbonated. Overall, a tasty quaffing balanced brown ale. It deserves the great rep. Reminds me of tree bark. Tasty tree bark.

This beer was available by the bottle at the local Moose Lodge, fittingly. Chocolate malt nose, bit of a hop kick in the taste. Very easy to drink. Moose Drool is pehaps a tad overrated but still a good example of an American Brown Ale.
