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.

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

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.

joebrew (608) - Farewell Minny; Hello Puyallup, Washington, USA - OCT 8, 2007
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.

UPDATED: APR 7, 2014 average brown ale...i thought this would be a lot tastier like previous brau bros beers i have tried...a little recipe tweaking and this could be real good.

oakbluff (432) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - DEC 15, 2007
Pours a dark mahogany with some ruby tones. Quickly disappearing head. Nose- expected brown malt smell along with a raspberry concentrate smell. Taste- biscuity malts and ripe raspberries. Finishes too quick- not much complexity on the back end. Light hopping. Good cabonation. Beer is somewhat sour as you get into it.Decent effort.

RyanMM (413) - Ferndale, Michigan, USA - AUG 29, 2011
Pours a dark ruby-brown, little head to speak of. Aroma is heavy with nuts, fruit, and biscuity malt notes. Smooth, creamy, low on the carbonation but without coming across as flat. Nice sweet nuttiness up front, finishing with biscuit and chocolate notes, without much in the way of hop bittering. Pretty damn tasty and not at all what I’d expected from the bottle. My first from these brewers and certainly won’t be my last.

joeymacaroni (309) - Wagontown, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 3, 2011
pours a beautiful deep chestnut color with a thin, off-white head. nose is heavy with brown sugar, toffee, nuttiness, and a light butterscotch. flavor is similar to aroma, with a bit of breadiness and dark fruit. nice and light, oily with a light bubbliness in the finish. finish is long, with a sweet maple syrup-like flavor balanced by walnut and toffee.

tedovertu (287) - Apple Valley, Minnesota, USA - NOV 1, 2008
A strange tasting brew. Clear brown medium color. Very small off white head that quickly diminishes. Extremely small notes of nuts and caramel. Watery in texture and light in carbonation. It has a very strange flavor, I taste some sauerkraut in the back end. Might be because of drinking some Surly Darkness before rating this one that it tastes so bad.

Bottle, like four squares two are white two are green. Lots of text, didn't read it.... Dark beer, toasty smell... Toasty flavor. Decent. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
