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.

piscator34 (1948) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - DEC 13, 2007
Bottled sample via oakbluff. Brown-red in colour with medium (albeit somewhat spritzy) carbonation. Aromas of vanilla fudge, a bit of strawberry and raspberry, and some toasted malt. A bit fruit forward in the mouth (raspberry again) with more mild chocolate, toasted nuts, and a bit of earthy British hop. More sweet than roasty. Would be fairly heavy in the mouth if not for the carbonation tingle. A bit too fruity for me, but still fairly nice.

portableparty (1909) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - FEB 23, 2011
Bottle. Dark brown pour with a tight kahki head that fades. Aroma is good roasted malt and some plesant coffee scents and maple. Taste is nice and roasted malt along with some funky sweet maple. Palate is medium feel with a mellow carbonation and finishes dry. This is one of the tastier Brau Brothers I have had. Good stuff.

fidelis83 (1907) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - FEB 9, 2010
Pours clear, ruby tinted medium brown with a small, creamy, off white head that has good retention. Aroma is lots of buttery toffee, creamed corn, cereal grain and biscuit. Flavor is more buttery toffee, buttered popcorn Jelly Belly jellybeans, toasted nuts, sweetish cereal malts, light fruity notes and a bitter planty note toward the finish. Palate is light bodied slightly slick and moderately carbonated.

A surprisingly good brown ale and very unique too. Aromas of strawberry and bubblegum. A touch of sour cherry too. Smooth nutty flavors to go along with sour fruit notes. Very good.
