sweet & hoppy aroma, very pleasant. Pours dark brown, nice head for a brown ale. Mouthfeel is creamy. Flavour-wise, not much going on. There is noticeable hops in the finish. A nice brown ale. How can you hate a beer called "Moose Drool"?

Thin effervescant head. Dark brown colour. Warm, malty outdoorsish aroma. Stronger than typical brown ale hops in the finish. A slight sourness in the body. Good but not a Wild Rose.

Dark brown with a medium creamy beige head. Smell malt and caramel. Taste like roasted malt. Great beer.

This was a great brown ale... one of the best in my book. It was strong and tasty with just enough of a smooth sweet finish. Loved it!

slightly tan head, large active carbonation, would pass for a glass of coke with watery dark brown color, nice coffe/nut aroma. tast is smooth with a nice crisp hop finish and a lingering roasted taste. totally drinkable.

Delicious. Creamy, smokey, nutty. Very smooth and easy to drink. I love this stuff. Much better than Newcastle.

What a color! With a good taste to boot. I'm into the brown ale's right now, and this is one of the top that I've tasted lately.

As far as brown ales go I was rather pleased with this. Nice deep color, slight head. Rather substantial caramel and nut aroma, more flavors like roasted malts coming through as it warms. Nevertheless, a bit thin, with shades of Newcastle (though still a far cry from it).

My friend brought a case from montana after talking about it for four years. It was good, but didn't live up to his hype.

Pours a nice deep brown, with a roasted/nutty aroma. Tastes like a light nut brown ale, and overall it was enjoyable, although slightly thin.
