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.

Single bottle from HyVee. For a "single batch" beer, it sure gets around. I chose a Nonick pint to pour it into; comes out a rather yellowish brown. Smell is lots of brown roast malts, some nuttiness, and even a hint of coffee. Head dwindles quickly to a scrum. Taste is loaded with nut brown malts with a bit of peat. Some earthy and herbal English hops take the usual ale esters out of consideration. A big mouthful of flavor makes it easy to simply enjoy one and put the rest away for later. Not too much later, I get the feeling this would not age well.

Bottle poured into an English pint. Had a ruby brown color and a thick tan head. Aroma is very malty with a decent amount of chocolate and a hint of fruitiness present. Taste starts off pretty fruity with a hint of chocolate but quickly shifts to biscuit with a hint of hops. Finishes off with a light hoppy bitterness. Palate is just right for the style with low carbonation. Very fruity for a brown but I like it!

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.

A mediocre brown but spectacular compared to the pale ale. Nutty and mildy roasted with a residual sweetness.

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.
