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.

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.

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.

12 oz bottle. Poured clear dark copper brown in color with a thin white ring of bubbles. Aroma of nuts, toasted malts. Tastes of toasted malts, mild earthy hops, nutty, weird citrus note that doesn’t seem to fit the rest of beer. thin body. eh.

Draft ABR 07. Pours a nice deep brownish almost orange color, with a nice very light tan head. Nice nutty roasted sweet malt on the nose with a hint of sweet ripe fruit. Nice medium bodied beer with a slight nuttiness and a good dose of sweet caramel malt. Unfortunately this beer was overpowered by all the imperial, and barrel ageds at the fest, but when it is bottled people should definately reapproach it, as it was a very nice beer.

Tap at Stubs. Hmm, fairly high hopes for this one. I got a lot of coco sweetness to it, but overally thought it was quite thin. REally drinkable, but not as much flavor going on it the way of hops or nuts as I would like. Not bad overall.

Tap. Lovely beer that caught my eye across the room. Caramel and yeast on the nose. Sweet flavor.

bigtaster (551) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - OCT 16, 2013
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.

Nsanders (490) - 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.
