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.

MrSawyer (12) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - JUN 22, 2013
Nice, almost-nitro-like head on initial pour that doesn't linger too long. Carbonation brings back tiny bubbles with a quick swirl of glass or hard set down. Strong chocolate and raspberry aroma notes. That's matched with equally strong chocolate alongside very earthy / nutty, slight coffee, plus a nice dose of raspberry fruit flavor. A nice pint or two to savor slowly.

HuskerTan (983) - Kearney, Nebraska, USA - AUG 16, 2015
Bottle. A- Malty, subtle dried fruits. A- Dark amber color, clear liquid, tan head. T- Cooked veggies, spinach dip, subtle fruit, malty, caramel. P- Medium body, average texture, average carbonation, astringent finish. O- I wasn’t sure if I was drinking a beer or pureed spinach dip from a chain restaurant. This had a lot of vegetable flavor to it although the descriptions on the bottle were there too, just minimal.

johnnymusky (605) - Minnesota, USA - APR 6, 2014
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.

rumproasts (4189) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - MAR 21, 2014
bottle. Brown with small head. Below average brown ale. Thin mouthfeel, and moderate off-flavors. Tastes like it’s been sitting around for too long, but that doesn’t appear to be the case here.
