3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
The aroma of the Braun Ale is very similar to oatmeal, with some caramel, and a very faint hint of pine as well. Itís not incredibly complex on the nose, but when sipping, the aroma comes through stronger. The palate is very smooth and also full bodied. Overall, a quite impressive beer in a style that Iím usually apathetic about. Try it out.

12 oz bottle. Pours a nice brown color with amber highlights. It has a nice white head that has decent retention and lacing. The aroma is wonderful! There are real nutty tones back with a soothing scent of maple. Yummy! The flavor is very smooth and warming. There are big nutty flavors in the forefront and almost a caramel backbone to it. Very delicious! This beer makes a great winter warmer! The mouthfeel is just a bit bigger than a normal brown and that fits in nicely here. I really like this beer.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
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.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.
