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.

[Bottle] Pours clear brown with a light tan head. Aroma is nutty, roasted malt--not bad at all. Taste of coffee, cocoa, and malt with a sort of strange finish that could be the raspberry. Medium-thin. Not very carbonated. This was ok--but as I have found Brau Brother’s beers to be much better on tap, I’ll have to rerate one at a bar some time.

(bottle) Pours dark brown with an off-white head. Nice aroma of toasted nuts and roasted malt. The flavor was sweet with caramel initially and some roasted coffee, but then this yielded to a somewhat dry cocoa-like finish that was a little odd. Pretty good though.

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!

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.

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