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%.

Fatehunter (2152) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - MAY 20, 2012
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.

tfontana (619) - Fremont, New Hampshire, USA - JUL 7, 2016
Bottle pour. Aroma is molasses, vanilla. Appearance is dark brown/mahogany with 1/2 finger-width beige head without sparkle or lacing. Taste is molasses, toffee with vanilla and light fruit, English hops. Palate is light bodied with thin, creamy texture, average to lively carbonation, mainly sweet over bitter finish. Overall, a solid brown ale with a molasses/toffee bent with English twist from the Kent Goldings hops.

Maxbier (865) - Maryland, USA - JUL 1, 2016
Gift from wife. Medium brown with light brown head. Roast caramel aroma. Not overly sweet or malty but distinctly brown ale. Toffee caramel dry clean finish with just enough earthy hop for balance. Very good brown ale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

FatPhil (13313) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUN 11, 2016
UPDATED: JUN 12, 2016 355ml can - thanks dwyerpg!
Nice rich roasty aroma, savoury, a bit of soy. Watery palate, carbonation high. A touch yeasty. Bit dull, just some savoury malts. Nothing to really grab onto here, and the carbonation was offputting.
