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%.

Tan color. Malt flavors, like a toffee bar. Medium finish, not too dry. Easy drinking. I must say I was too distracted by the drooling moose on the aluminum bottle.

Consumed from a pint glass. Liked this beer quite a bit. Good aroma with a nice tan head. Taste was not disappointing either...just sweet enough. I generally do like brown ales, though.

IndianaRed (2589) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUL 10, 2004
Bottle Pours dark reddish brown with very litle head or lacing. Aroma is faint dark roasted grain, wood smoke. Taste is subdued, roasted, carmel, malt. Smooth and easy is the feel with a nice smooth finish

redmosquito (172) - Sterling Heights, Michigan, USA - JUL 8, 2004
Cola colored w/ an off white head. Mild hop aroma mixed with sour roasted malt. Malty flavor, toasted, and slighty astringent taste, with a thin viscuous mouthfeel. A good example of a browm ale.

Supprising solid beer. Had it from the bottle after a round of golf. Wasnít expecting much and got a nice little beer instead. Somewhat nutty perhaps earthy, easy on the palette not becoming heavy at anypoint in the season. Give one a try.

hopdog (9133) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 30, 2004
Poured a dark brown with a large tan head. Aromas and tastes of malts, nutty, and caramel. Smells better than it tastes (but isnít anything too bad tasting). It was an OK beer to try, but I would pass on buying it again given other choices...

Pigfoot (2268) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUN 29, 2004
Dark brown in color, with a thick, bubbly, tan head. Aromas are cheifly of chocolate, with hints of nuts, and little else. Full texture, mild hops, soft body, not much here, but really decent, compared to the leading brown ales. Miles ahead of Newcastle. An ideal session ale, you could throw down a dozen without a pause. A fine American brown ale, despite the unappealing name. Excellent on draft, though this review was based upon a bottle...

dlclark (73) - Bloomington, Illinois, USA - JUN 23, 2004
Just returned from Montana and tried most local brews. This was by far the best. For a brown ale, this brew is loaded with flavor. Hops are present and thereís a smack of malts. Really a nice balance and Iím an IPA fan by nature. Brought back some extras to enjoy for a while.

YourDarkLord (1800) - Urbana, Illinois, USA - JUN 23, 2004
Pours a deep garnet with frothy tan head. Downhill from there. Aroma was funky. Perhaps the smell of moose drool. Wet animal. Weak and fizzy in the mouth. Flavor was like a mocha diluted with water. Very disappointing.

Bottled. This is certainly a good, tasty and refreshing Brown Ale. Thick, slowly dissipating head, nose of cream and caramel. Bold, malty flavor. This is a keeper.
