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%.

A good looking beer in my mug. A rich "cola" brown with a nice tan head and awesome lacing. A malty aroma with a hint of coffee? Smooth malty taste, not much in the way of hops. Finishes smooth with a brief dark chocolate aftertaste. Not in my personal wheelhouse, but really a good beer.

Pours a clear brown color with a medium sized off white head. Aroma is of mild roasted malts, caramel, light chocolate, nuttiness, and grain. Flavor is the same. Lighter palate. A little light for me but I’m glad to finally have my first Montana beer!!!

Rating #1465 - 13.02.2015 - On tap @underground_yeg. Unfortunately titled Moo Drool due to trademarks in the Great White North. Dark brown pour with a frothy tan foam that disappears slowly. Aroma is strong roast malts, hint of nutty sweetness. Really really light in body for a brown ale. Lots of roasty, earthy notes balanced by just a tender bitterness and a creamy texture. Lots of spicy hops in the finish. A solid brown.

tillmac62 (560) - Gaffney, South Carolina, USA - DEC 18, 2015
Pours a clear dark amber (cola brown) that is a dark ruby under intense light. World class head volume, lacing and retention. Outstanding nose of malt - biscuit, caramel and a touch of char/roast. Heavy light body that is quite smooth with a bit of oiliness in the texture. Superb carbonation with a bit of effervescence in the middle and a nice burst in the finish. The flavor is good but lacks intensity. Balance is world class and complexity is good. The flavors appear as a blend and don’t separate much. The heavier flavors (roast, chocolate) are the most noted and sweetness never materializes. Light herbal hop flavor and bitterness provide the middle. The finish is a slow fade of blended flavor.

Old rating---Hello Montana, can. Dark brown color with a medium, frothy head. Aroma of malts. Sweet malt taste up front with some nuttiness following. The finish is pretty smooth.

Moose Drool pours a nice deep shade of brown and tastes...not brown. It’s got a good, rich flavor that doesn’t tend to drift in either direction (bitter or sweet). It sits in the middle and has a light enough body to want to drink more than one without feeling shitty about it.

Gift from a buddy that just came back from Montana. Pour is dark brown with a medium tan head that does not linger. Aroma malty,nutty and hints of chocolate. A pretty lite beer that nothing jumps out at you but still makes you want to drink and at 5.2% adv you can.
