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.

[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.

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.

bhensonb (12595) - Woodland, California, USA - NOV 11, 2009
Thanks to guerde for this rarity - might be the only bottle in Cali. Pours a hazy darkish brown/amber with a creamy beige head. Rich aroma notes of darkish malt, chocolate and arguably treacle. Medium body with creamy carbonation. Flavor is very mixed - toffee, treacle, something in that vein. Nutty. Tasty. Finishes neither sweet nor dry, and there’s a slight tootsie roll rebound.

demitriustown (1140) - Sterling Heights, Michigan, USA - JUL 7, 2011
12 oz bottle: Aroma is malty, caramel, slight chocolate cake notes, slightly roasted, not much hops here but very fiantly detectable with light grassy notes. Appearance is a muddy brown with a medium to low tan head that diminishes into a soapy film. Taste is sweet malts with a slight graininess, lightly bitter, and more of the chocolate and caramel note coming out in the backing. Palate is medium bodies, creamy and slightly thick, nice carbonation with a nice bitter finish. Overall, Nice offering as a brown ale. I would drink this agian. Cheers!

BigBeer45 (1336) - Michigan, USA - JUL 8, 2011
Bottle, this Brown Ale had a clear red-ruby pour and gave a one finger light tan colored head, carbonation was medium or so, a mild center stream with various streams of bubbles at the sides of the glass, left some spots and fingers of lacing on the sides of the glass, this beer had aromas of chocolate, caramel, toasted malt, some nut and brown sugar sweetness, I did not notice the hops in this beer, the flavors are chocolate, toasted malt, nut, caramel and brown sugar sweetness, this beer finished with toasted malt, caramel and a little sweetness, the finish is drier than the typical Brown Ale but with hardly any bitterness, the mouth feel was about medium, a nice Brown Ale, I would drink this again.

Brown color with thin body and modest head. Aroma and taste were a unique combination of toasted, sweet, bitter and a touch of sour.
