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%.

KeefOz (1153) - Tarragindi, AUSTRALIA - JUN 16, 2015
Poured a clear coppery brown with a one- to two-finger light tan foamy head that diminished slowly to a collar but laced well. Carbonation light and medium sized. Aroma of sweet but mild malts with hints of roasting. taste of sweet caramel malts with very low hops bitterness. Light body. Smooth and sweet on the finish.

emusche (65) - Wisconsin, USA - JUN 6, 2015
Pours amber with light ivory head. Aroma is nutty, nibs, caramel, loads of malt. Taste is smoky, the caramel malts and the cocoa. It’s a good offering. Brown ales aren’t really my gig, but I’d drink it again.

UXO (866) - CANADA - JUN 5, 2015
Pours clear amber-brown with one finger of tight tan head, good retention and patchy lacing. (3/5) Nose is roasty malt, caramel, molasses, nutty, light smoke. (7/10) Taste is moderate sweet, mild bitter. (7/10) Medium to light body, moderate carbonation, medium duration finish. (3/5) Quite a drinkable brown. Light smoke is somewhat reminiscent of a rauchbier, without being intrusive. Malt dominant, of course, but there is a small hop bitterness keeping the sweetness under control. That, along with the light body tending to the watery, would probably make it easy to session. (14/20)

Brown-reddish, off white head, nice lacing and mild head retention. Caramel, mild roast, and mild earth note aroma. Medium bodied, sweet caramel malt, mild roast, mild dark fruit, and watery finish. Decent balance, refreshing dry notes, and lite bitterness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

bartzluke (391) - Oklahoma, USA - MAY 6, 2015
12 oz pour from refrigerated bottle into a tulip glass. Pours a pleasant one-finger off-white head. Moderate retention and a bit of lacing. Opaque and dark brown to black. Nose is nutty and malty, though not too heavy. Medium body. Taste is fairly malty with some nuttiness, a little smoke, and a little woodiness. A tiny bit of hops on the end. Pretty dry. A little watery to me. Not too complex of a beer. An easy drinking dark beer.

rjwhite41 (55) - osceola, Iowa, USA - APR 30, 2015
12 oz bottle poured into a tulip glass. Pours a dark amber with a smallish off white head. Smells of caramel, smoked meat and sweet molasses. Tastes of caramel, hint of smokiness, and little else. Body is medium to light and finish is medium. Goes down easy. Session beer.

sremed60 (15) - Arizona, USA - APR 10, 2015
A decent average brown ale. Pretty dark in the glass. Nice 1 finger tan head. The nose was mild malt. Taste was also a mild malt but with a hint of hops on the finish. I found it a little watery. I wouldn’t turn it down if it was offered to me.
