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%.

Bottle. Pours a beer-bottle-brown color with a medium tan head and plenty of carbonation (in fact, it looked like a cola in the glass!). The aroma is of roasted barley, chocolate and a touch of caramel. It has a nice roasted barley flavor that is not too sweet or malty. The brew has a good hops-to-malt balance and a crisp finish. There is a clean, almost effervescent mouthfeel that is surprisingly refreshing. Its a good brown ale, and Id like to pair this with a quality grilled burger with all the trimmings (Tillamook cheddar cheese, red onion, crisp pickle, steak sauce) and a mixed green salad.

pours dark dark brown, mouthfeel is watery, taste is pretty good though, slight bitter hops, not too much though. little raisiny, quick finish, not getting a whole lot of flavor, but it does have a nice nut finish. I had higher hopes, but overall its drinkable, just not one i would seek out by any means.

Bottle. Pours clear dark brown with thin off-white head. Aroma is sweet caramel malts and nutty. Flavor is caramel, nuts, smoke, and is very true to style. Medium bodied with decent carbonation, very smooth. Good beer.

Doon (109) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - JAN 12, 2008
On tap at D-lux burger in PHX. It was dark, so it looked a deep dark brown almost black. Head was thin and whispy by the time it was delivered to the table. Arome was that of a typical brown ale, not too strong or hoppy. Taste was surprisingly smooth and not as complex as I was expecting. I was pleasantly surprised and would definately recommend this to my friends!

12 ounce bottle. For me, this is a good representative of brown ale. I would drink it again. The pour produces a creamy light-brown head. The color is a rich, clear brown. There are hints of roasted nuts, dark chocolate, espresso. I also sense a light bread aroma and a slightly sweet earthiness/grassiness behind the bitterness. The finish registers high in the palate and toward the front of the mouth. I had this with homemade spaghetti and garlic bread, which was probably not the best food pairing. I think it would go better with a lightly spiced steak or pot roast. Overall, a pleasurable experience.

Great brown ale. Tasty and malty very smooth and refreshing with very little hops. Good all year but especially in cooler weather. Nice name as well.

UPDATED: MAY 11, 2013 Uncomplicated nutty malt nose leads to a similar taste, with additional bready and roasty notes, nicely balanced by clean hop undertones and a relatively light, carbonated mouthfeel make this a solid drinkable brown. One of my favorite American brown ales that is widely available.

Pours dark brown with ample head. Fruitier than most browns with a decent finish. Pretty good.
