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%.

What a funny name! Very interesting character though. Somewhat smoky but not overpowering. Of course great on-tap, but delivers a nice head and flavor out of the bottle as well, suprisingly. Send this East please!

Good color of brown with brick red highlights, head was standing awhile sort of thick. Nice roasted malt aroma with some dried grainyness. Taste is good, balance of hops and roasted malt flavors but a little to tangy and leaves a hint of cocoa. Felt of medium body but something was missing from this brown. I expect a good smooth feel to a brown with nut like flavors, but this had to much hop and tang for this style. Thats just me I guess. Finishes dry with a hop bite and some wood flavors like a toothpick. Its drinkable, sure, but I've had better, but if offered a Moose Drool... I wouldn't turn it down.

A deep brown with a tinge of red running through it. The aroma is sweet and malty with some caramel. A medium body. The flavor hints at nutiness but prevails with roasted malts. Quite delicious.

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"?

presario (4580) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 3, 2003
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.
