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.

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

Brown black color almost color of a great root beer, head is tan with some frothy bubbles. Anise, chocolate, smoke in the aroma. Medium to light body, flavors are melded together, anise, chocolate, sweet dark malts, balanced finish. This is tasty but nothing special.

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.

Poured from bottle into Nonic Imperial Pint. Rich, somewhat dark brown with an orange-red hue. Small off-white head forms with spotty lacing. Milk chocolate, caramel, brown sugar, and dark fruit. Very nice malty smell overall. Semi-sweet malt backbone of caramel, toffee, chocolate, dark fruit and molasses. A nice nut flavor helps cut the sweetness which turns slightly drying at the end. Relatively low carbonation, medium smooth body, slight dry finish. Just a nice pub ale feel overall. Both full flavored and easy drinking at the same time. One of the better English Brown Ales I have had.

Nsanders (708) - St Paul, Minnesota, USA - MAY 21, 2013
Medium red brown with a thin off white head. Raspberry, soft chocolate, malts, and graham crackers. Taste is moderately sweet, but fades to a dry flavor. Body is a little heavier, but the sharp carbonation offsets this. Really tasty, almost like dessert.

wmubronco1992 (666) - Coldwater, Michigan, USA - DEC 1, 2011
Bottle. Pours a cloudy dark brown. Very small white head. No lacing. Somewhat sweet aroma of molasses and dark fruit. Excellent nutty flavor with some roast. Medium Palate, but strong flavor makes it feel thicker. My first beer from this brewer. Overall a good beer, but really close to being an excellent beer.

Chocolate dark berry nose. Smooth taste hints of chocolate and roasted malt. Smooth finish

commonmac (642) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - FEB 6, 2014
Large mug poured at Lyon’s Pub. Copper in color with small head. Smell is like a syrupy, old coffee left out for too long. Taste is...not good. Something really unpleasant...maybe burnt sugar mixed with bitters. There are some sour fruit elements. Not much complexity or enjoyment with this option. Avoid.
