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.

MoDog (927) - Griffith, Indiana, USA - DEC 5, 2007
Poured from a 12oz bottle(thanks Tyler!) and served in a Bell’s dimpled mug. This beer poured a semi-translucent brown color with a lasting tan head. A small amount of slippery lacing was left around the glass. The aroma of the beer was made up of caramel, nuts, and biscuit. The flavor was nice and malty with notes of caramel, chocolate, nuts, along with a mildly spicy noble hop finish. The mouthfeel was medium-bodied and smooth with light carbonation. A very nice example of the style. I wish I could get my hands on more of this!

Thanks to Deliriumfest for this one in a trade! A-Completely transparent chestnut brown colored body. Pours with an approximately 2 finger foamy off-white head. Head eventually fades completely. No lacing left behind in the glass. S-Nose has a very sweet, sticky nose of caramel and toffee, behind this is a hint of nuttiness. T-Initial flavor of sweet caramel and toffee. These flavors intensify for the finish and add a hint of roasted nuttiness. Flavor is clean otherwise. P-Medium tingly carbonation and medium weight, drinkable body. Mouthfeel is smooth and silky. O- This is a nice English Brown Ale. I haven’t had an English Brown in awhile and it was nice to revisit the style. This brew is very sweet and has a strong flavor. It would be perfect for making bread with. Wouldn’t mind having this again. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 12-27-2008 01:15:14 --

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.

[Bottle] Pours clear brown with a light tan head. Aroma is nutty, roasted malt--not bad at all. Taste of coffee, cocoa, and malt with a sort of strange finish that could be the raspberry. Medium-thin. Not very carbonated. This was ok--but as I have found Brau Brother’s beers to be much better on tap, I’ll have to rerate one at a bar some time.

SavageElvis (134) - Savage, Minnesota, USA - NOV 3, 2007
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.

CaptainCougar (7129) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - DEC 15, 2007
Pours a transparent copper mahogany with a thin-lacing light tan head. Aroma of sweet dark caramel malt and some nutty notes. Body starts lightly sweet with some chewy caramel malts and a touch of lightly toasted malts toward a drier finish. A pretty decent brown ale.
