COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The most approachable of our ales, Brawler is malt forward and delicately hopped for a knockout flavor. Its smooth character, hints of caramel and toast, and remarkable drinkability define this ruby colored brew as a true session ale. Perfect for when you want to go a few rounds.

very subdued aroma. light bread smell, but not much else is noticeable. Almost no head. deep orange to brown color. The taste starts well with what seems to e a full bitter sweet flavor, but ends kind-of flat and salty. Medium body, feeling almost creamy from the carbonation.

Ethereal (2421) - Los Angeles, California, USA - JUL 10, 2010
On tap at the White Horse American Beer Festival, 4th July 2010. Deep brown with a persistent line of white head. Nose of jam and biscuity malt. Similar taste - fruity at the start then biscuit. Bit weak and bland with a poor palate. Nice hint of blackcurrant at the finish.

Pours a transparent deep mahogany amber with a small ring of frothy off-white head. Has a lightly sweet toasty dark caramel and nutty nose with a touch of English hops. Starts with decent fullness and a light toasty malty sweetness with good bitter balance before a smooth milk chocolatey finish. True to style and very drinkable.

Pours a dark caramel color with no head. Sweet aroma of molasses. Flavor of caramel, toasted malts and a touch of coffee. Nice taste. Decent beer for the style.

Recipe has been resurrected from Yards boneyard. I drank Brawler in its first incarnation and remember it being a lighter colored beer. Anyway, let’s talk about today’s Brawler. Sweet Malt nose, thin head, medium dark amber body. Graininess and uneven bitterness couldn’t shake from my palate. Yes, it a session beer; Yards has better beers to offer and I think there are better session beers out there too.

Capa (2572) - Kitsap, Washington, USA - JUN 9, 2010
Brown with a light head. Highly sweet malty aroma, caramel, a touch of toasted malts, too. Flavor is is very similar to the aroma with the sweet malts really coming on strong. A bit too sweet for me but still pretty good.

Red-brown pour. Dark malts, coffee, kind of watery, but I’d be nice and say "light" instead. Not bad.
