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.

Sampled on draught at the ABR 07 in Minneapolis, MN. Pours a clear coppery amber brew with a slow dissolving off-white head that has good retention and nice lacing. Aroma of fruity caramel malt, a touch of dark berries, some roasted nuts with some yeast funk. Taste is medium bodied, lightly carbonated with flavors of roasted caramel malt, some light berries and roasted nuts. Finish is slightly gritty/grainy with a fruity aftertaste that quickly disappears. Actually, not too bad for a brown ale.

Tap at Stubs. Hmm, fairly high hopes for this one. I got a lot of coco sweetness to it, but overally thought it was quite thin. REally drinkable, but not as much flavor going on it the way of hops or nuts as I would like. Not bad overall.

HogTownHarry (5984) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - FEB 5, 2008
Bottle (12oz). Via trade with Oakbluff. Clear deep mahogany pour, small fizzy off-white head. Mildly sour caramel malt aroma, lemony and nutty. The taste follows - nutshell roast malt, light lemon juice, a bit of sour currant or cranberry, and slight dry weedy hop bitterness ... I don’t DISlike it, but it seems thin and stuck somewhere between sour ale and brown ale. Watery, flat body, medium acidity, quick taste drop-off leaving a mildly bitter/sour aftertaste. Odd - honestly if this were called a sour ale I might give it a higher score.

Sammy (8095) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 8, 2008
Malty brown, pours brown with initial white foamy head. Some bitterness apparent, but well washed over with malt, making it easy drinkable but essentially another malt. A bit of choco malt too.
