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.

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.

12 oz bottle. Pours a nice brown color with amber highlights. It has a nice white head that has decent retention and lacing. The aroma is wonderful! There are real nutty tones back with a soothing scent of maple. Yummy! The flavor is very smooth and warming. There are big nutty flavors in the forefront and almost a caramel backbone to it. Very delicious! This beer makes a great winter warmer! The mouthfeel is just a bit bigger than a normal brown and that fits in nicely here. I really like this beer.

Large mug poured at Lyonís 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.

The aroma of the Braun Ale is very similar to oatmeal, with some caramel, and a very faint hint of pine as well. Itís not incredibly complex on the nose, but when sipping, the aroma comes through stronger. The palate is very smooth and also full bodied. Overall, a quite impressive beer in a style that Iím usually apathetic about. Try it out.

Dominated by dry, expansive, weak caramel malt. Most noticeable is the mouthfeel - large-bubbled watered-down-extract expanding to the the degree your cheeks bulge.

Aroma: Nuts, caramel, dark malt, and some butterscotch.
Appearance: A basic hazy brown with a small off-white head.
Taste: Medium sweetness and a slight bitterness.
Palate: Medium bodied, thin texture, average carbonation, dry, and with a slightly boozy finish.

12 oz. bottle. Pours out a nice dark brown with a thin quickly fading head. The aroma is of a sweet bread/malty nature. Upon tasing I found it to be a little thinner on the palate than I was expecting but it was fine. Flavors I found were chocolate, nuts, and a little fruit. I found the finish to a bit off as it left a lingering after taste, (not in a good way) but very drinkable. No lacing to speak of. It is a good beer that could become better with a little more hops.

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.
