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 (1389) - 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.

Not a brown ale at all. It pours fairly dark and thick wit a full khaki head. Nose is roasted malt and caramel. A little nutty. Flavor is similar, not a large hop presence with more notes of chocolate and nuttiness, caramel and smoothness. Itís not bad and itís growing on me.

12 oz can pours a clear chestnut brown with small off-white head and a little lacing. Underpowered aroma is malty and nutty with a bit of raisins and perhaps chocolate. Taste is slightly bitter with a slight metallic aftertaste. Body is light to medium with sudsy carbonation. Thereís nothing terrible wrong with this, but I doubt Iíll try it again. The name is the most memorable thing about this beer to me.

ARH (559) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 6, 2014
Poured from a 12oz bottle. The roasted aroma consists of caramel and chocolate bar notes with subtle herb character. Itís a rich, dark brown color with a sudsy off white, medium ring and a light lace. Itís taste consists of a medium sweetness and light bitterness. The thinnish beer has a sudsy carbination and a medium, malty body consisting of caramel and chocolate with roasted nutty hints, and a slightly herbal finish. Thereís a light malt, and herb aftertaste. One of my go to winter session beers.

Iíve had these on tap up north at a bar called lucky moose. Didnít remember too much specifically about it so picked up a single bottle to review. Very good stuff, nice toasted malts with hints of caramel and chocolate notes. Beers like this are nice change ups for me vs. The IPA and APA I normally drink. Yum. Good time of year for this beer to 1st day of December in Minnesota. Pretty easy drinking and at 5.1% pretty session able.

Countbeer (4728) - Best of E-Town mit ein Brauhaus, NETHERLANDS - NOV 24, 2014
From 10 year old note: Bottle: Red brown beer with an off white color foam. Smell malts, roast and coffee. Taste caramel, bitters, malts, roast, chocolate.

This one was a real surprise. Waited a long time to try this. Medium brown color with a nice head. Aroma is weird. Smells cheap and grainy. Taste is slightly metallic, some malts with a very unpleasant aftertaste. Disappointing brown ale.

Jado (575) - Camp Hill, AUSTRALIA - NOV 10, 2014
From 355 ml can. Pours a clear chestnut brown with a small off-white head. Faint aromas of raisins, caramel and malt. Taste is gentle dark fruit and more caramel with a slight coffee bitterness. Fairly short finish with a light fruity aftertaste. Straightforward but very drinkable.

mattyhennessy (343) - Highton, AUSTRALIA - NOV 7, 2014
Pours light brown with a tan/beige head with a slight haze. Caramel and toffee on the nose with some spice and fruity hop esters. Toffee and caramel dominate the flavour with a surprising hop presence. Roasty flavours also emerge. Nothing really that makes this beer amazing, but it is solid. Great to sink a few
