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.

12 oz bottle: Aroma is malty, caramel, slight chocolate cake notes, slightly roasted, not much hops here but very fiantly detectable with light grassy notes. Appearance is a muddy brown with a medium to low tan head that diminishes into a soapy film. Taste is sweet malts with a slight graininess, lightly bitter, and more of the chocolate and caramel note coming out in the backing. Palate is medium bodies, creamy and slightly thick, nice carbonation with a nice bitter finish. Overall, Nice offering as a brown ale. I would drink this agian. Cheers!

Bottle pour. Nuts abound here with that being the big take away in my mind.

MoDog (927) - Griffith, Indiana, USA - DEC 5, 2007
Poured from a 12oz bottle(thanks Tyler!) and served in a Bellís dimpled mug. This beer poured a semi-translucent brown color with a lasting tan head. A small amount of slippery lacing was left around the glass. The aroma of the beer was made up of caramel, nuts, and biscuit. The flavor was nice and malty with notes of caramel, chocolate, nuts, along with a mildly spicy noble hop finish. The mouthfeel was medium-bodied and smooth with light carbonation. A very nice example of the style. I wish I could get my hands on more of this!

12 oz. bottle pours a clear chestnut brown with a small beige head and practically no lacing. Smells of roasted malts and yeast. Aroma has hints of chocolate and fruit (raspberry?) The finish is slightly sweet, clean, and satisfying. As Minnesotans would say to praise this: not bad at all.

Thanks to Deliriumfest for this one in a trade! A-Completely transparent chestnut brown colored body. Pours with an approximately 2 finger foamy off-white head. Head eventually fades completely. No lacing left behind in the glass. S-Nose has a very sweet, sticky nose of caramel and toffee, behind this is a hint of nuttiness. T-Initial flavor of sweet caramel and toffee. These flavors intensify for the finish and add a hint of roasted nuttiness. Flavor is clean otherwise. P-Medium tingly carbonation and medium weight, drinkable body. Mouthfeel is smooth and silky. O- This is a nice English Brown Ale. I havenít had an English Brown in awhile and it was nice to revisit the style. This brew is very sweet and has a strong flavor. It would be perfect for making bread with. Wouldnít mind having this again. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 12-27-2008 01:15:14 --

Friend of mine gave me a bottle on the day it was released. Pheasant season opener 2007. Very nutty flavor with strong chocolatey tones. A lot more complex than I thought it would be. Impressed and canít wait to visit the Brauhaus sometime and taste all there selections.

On tap. Aroma of caramel, nuts, some roastiness. Good flavor, solid enough bitterness to let you know itís there. Good beer.

This is a great brown ale. Nutty, chocolate taste with a hint of raspberry. Damn good brew. I have yet to be let down by a brau brother beer.
