COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Ring Neck Braun Ale is the initial offering in the Brau Single Batch Series of beers. A perfect autumn ale, this big double nut brown ale is dry and fruity, yet surprisingly drinkable. Nutty flavor is derived from both biscuit malt and toasted oats. A hint of raspberry and classic British hops round out this mild and complex brown ale.

Dominated by dry, expansive, weak caramel malt. Most noticeable is the mouthfeel - large-bubbled watered-down-extract expanding to the the degree your cheeks bulge.

12 oz. bottle. Pours out a nice dark brown with a thin quickly fading head. The aroma is of a sweet bread/malty nature. Upon tasing I found it to be a little thinner on the palate than I was expecting but it was fine. Flavors I found were chocolate, nuts, and a little fruit. I found the finish to a bit off as it left a lingering after taste, (not in a good way) but very drinkable. No lacing to speak of. It is a good beer that could become better with a little more hops.

MrSawyer (12) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - JUN 22, 2013
Nice, almost-nitro-like head on initial pour that doesn't linger too long. Carbonation brings back tiny bubbles with a quick swirl of glass or hard set down. Strong chocolate and raspberry aroma notes. That's matched with equally strong chocolate alongside very earthy / nutty, slight coffee, plus a nice dose of raspberry fruit flavor. A nice pint or two to savor slowly.
