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.

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.

Friend of mine gave me a bottle on the day it was released. Pheasant season opener 2007. Very nutty flavor with strong chocolatey tones. A lot more complex than I thought it would be. Impressed and can’t wait to visit the Brauhaus sometime and taste all there selections.

piscator34 (1946) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - DEC 13, 2007
Bottled sample via oakbluff. Brown-red in colour with medium (albeit somewhat spritzy) carbonation. Aromas of vanilla fudge, a bit of strawberry and raspberry, and some toasted malt. A bit fruit forward in the mouth (raspberry again) with more mild chocolate, toasted nuts, and a bit of earthy British hop. More sweet than roasty. Would be fairly heavy in the mouth if not for the carbonation tingle. A bit too fruity for me, but still fairly nice.

UPDATED: JAN 1, 2014 Tap. Brown cola pour with a clingy white head. Aroma of caramel and yeast. Medium mouthfeel. Taste is reflective of the aroma. Very nice brown ale.

Pailhead (4572) - Brownstown, Michigan, USA - OCT 17, 2011
Bottle: The aroma consists of light chocolate, caramel, fruit, and nuts. It pours a transparent (when held to the light) brownish-red with a one finger beige head that quickly fades to a soapy film. The flavor starts with a quick dose of light chocolate and caramel. The finish has some fruitiness and some light roasted nuts. It’s light-medium bodied with mild carbonation. Overall, an okay Brown Ale, but the fruitiness seems slightly out of place.

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.

ccex (903) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 29, 2011
12 oz. bottle pours a clear chestnut brown with a small beige head and practically no lacing. Smells of roasted malts and yeast. Aroma has hints of chocolate and fruit (raspberry?) The finish is slightly sweet, clean, and satisfying. As Minnesotans would say to praise this: not bad at all.
