COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Boasting superior taste and champion flavor, the Brawler is crafted in the style of English session ales. This malt-forward, ruby colored ale is great for when you want to go a few rounds.

Bottle Pours a good clear amber with a deminishing off white head. The lacing could be a touch better. Has a good aroma of caramel, toffee, roast, and some earthiness. Has an okay carbonation. The flavor is hearty. Plenty of sweet malts. Has a light to medium body. Has a good finish with a nice aftertaste. First beer from Yards I have had in a little and good as expected.

On draft at the Half Moon as an "English Ale," probably should have left it at that. The pour was copper-brown-reddish with a fairly weak head. The aroma was caramel, tofee, and brown sugar. The flavor was overly malty brown sugar sweet with some caramel, figs, lacking other fruity elements to smooth it out, maybe a touch of roast even. The mouthfeel was on par for the style, moderate body, slight acidity. Meh.

I didnít know what to make of this beer. It tasted almost like a smoked beer. Itís labeled a mild ale. There are no hops to be found but the is nothing else at all.

Bottle. Pours amber to light right red. Thick tan head that recedes quickly, Aroma of yeast and malt. Flavor is very mild, as are the body and finish. Decent beer for little money,

Rich Mahogany red color which looks even more impressive when held to a bright light. Average head and lacing that coats the side of the glass. Aroma is earthy like a stoudt, with some roasted malt. Flavor is roasted malt to start, finish is hoppy and a bit acidic Overall, another solid brew from Yards - these guys do an excellent job.

Bottled. This is a mild? News to me. "Pugilist style ale" is not exactly the most descriptive write-up for a beer. Iím 90% done with this beer and it just tastes like an "ale," in the most generic sense possible. Light cookie and earthy english hops, with a mild, vegetal, slightly lactic flavor. Uber-generic.

12 oz. bottle-brownish red whit decent white head. mild malt character to the nose. mild hop bitterness followed by some toasty malt notes, mixed in with some fruity esters, and a little residual sweetness. nice version of the style and relatively flavorful for the abv

On tap in Philly airport. Nice amber body with a descent head that is a kind of gross dusty gray brown color. Aroma, not much... not much at all. Flavor is weird dusty old chocolate, kind of like a too old and oxidized smoked. Medium body with medium carbonation. Overall: not my favorite.

12 oz bottle from Oak Tree. Pours a ruby brownish with a small fizzy mostly white head. Aroma is malt forward with notes of chocolate, nutts, brown bread toast and vinegar. Medium bodied with a fizzy full mouthfeel and bubbly carbonation. Flavor isnít quite as complex as the aroma and very chocolate malty with a tiny hine of cherry fruitiness. Sessionable enough but the palate is a little too full for something so light in ABV billing itself as a session ale.
