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%.

I grabbed a sixer of these cans up in Yellowstone. Poured it into a pint glass. It looks amazing. Brown to amber on the edges with a thick, dirty-white head. A fragrant beer. A good biscuit, yeasty, wet malt smell. A really solid smelling brown ale. The taste is initially watery, followed by a mild barley flavor. A real let down from how it looked and smelled. It feels like an average ale; moderate carbonation and normal texture. Besides the taste, this beer is fine. Too bad that taste is central to a good beer. It was not undrinkable by any means, but it tasted like a watered down brown ale. Maybe grab some for an athletic drinking event since it goes down easy.

Pours mid brown with solid tan head. Upfront bitterness quickly balanced with malt sweetness. Not the most complex flavour but none the worse for it ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Smooth easy drinking brown ale. On point stylistically. Light enough to drink during hot months and warm enough for the winter months.

From bottle with 9/8 expiration date.

Despite my best pour efforts, it pours brown, no head. Just blah. It looks like a light Folgers. Blah.

Aroma is a lot better. Itís very malty. I also smell chocolate and toffee, and maybe a hint of coffee. The malts are maybe medium roasted. A little nutty.

Taste falls flat. Itís sweet and malty. Itís a little chocolate, a little coffee, but not much. Again, taste falls flat. It has no body, itís super watery.

Mouthfeel is poor. It has no body, and thatís really the thing that hurts it the most. Itís like drinking water. It might have a slight wet finish.

Overall, I really should consider giving this another shot, but I donít think it will make much difference. Based on this one bottle, I wouldnít suggest it. It just needs some body.

I had this from a longneck bottle. The aroma is distinctive, balanced, and malty. The flavor is malt forward, medium bodied, and the British hops shine. The modest bittering is lovely and it is the balanced achieved by that which makes this an exceptional beer.

Poured from bottle to glass. Pours clear brown with tan head. Smell of caramel, plum. Taste is malt forward with some spice from the EKG. Toasty. Light bodied. Medium carb. Pleasant. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
