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%.

One of my first craft beers - chose it for the name and didn’t regret it. Excellent color and texture with a taste that would lead you to believe it has a higher abv. Excellent.

I love brown ale. I love it, I love it, I love it. This one looks like brown ale ought to except that it comes from a bottle rather than a handpull. Appears on the ruby side of brown with a cream coloured head. Aroma of rich caramel and nuts: walnuts, pecans and hazelnuts - everything I enjoy in brown ale. Silky body with some sweetness from the malts. Lovely stuff and not dependent on masses of bitterness to save the day. The day is saved because it is tasty autumnal ale that I am sadly drinking in summer.

Dredd (684) - Bentleigh, AUSTRALIA - JAN 18, 2014
Nice sweety caramel aroma, dark cola brown and thin head. Flavor is a mix of caramel malts, sought hint of vanilla and a slight drying finish.

Yet another dark ale with a weird name. It’s true to tradition in another way: excellent taste. There’s a lot going on here. Varying types of sweetness from the numerous malts and a complex, spicy flavor coming from the hops. Yet, the brew is far from overwhelming. Better yet, it makes for a great session beer. Not the best brown ale in the world, but its good reputation is very well deserved.
