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.

A yummy mid 4% session ale in the style of a traditional English mild. Not overly complex, nice middle of the road mouth feel, pretty color to look at, nice unobtrusive aroma, and easy to drink in quantity. This has been a "video game beer" for me recently. I can sit back and play away with out getting blind drunk and still have rich flavor.

Dark almost black pour. Barley mouth feel. Little to no finish. Itís decent, but not great. Rated 4/18/10

Leafs93 (1884) - Clarks Summit, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 25, 2010
Pours a deep chestnut brown with a tiny white head that disappeared quickly. Aroma is roasted malts, chocolate and earthyness. Taste is mildly sweet with the roasted malt dominating. Low carbonation gave this brew a medium mouthfeel. Overall this was decent but not a favorite.

drowland (6841) - Georgia, USA - APR 17, 2010
4/17/10. 12oz bottle courtesy Cavie poured into a pint glass. The pour is amber/red with lots of small suspensions and an ENORMOUS khaki head (pour carefully) that fades to a couple millimeters pretty quickly. The aroma is bready, grainy, biscuits, grass, and apples. The flavor is huge sour apple up front followed by bland apple and dry roasted grains and a slight hop bitterness. This is all one strange combination that Iím not digging. All followed by a light body and super high carbonation.

ilovedarkbeer (2448) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - APR 15, 2010
Pours a dark amber color with a small canvas head. Notes of burnt biscuts, flowers, some fruit, and earthy mud. Off balance and grainy. Not very good.

12oz Bottle - Tasting at home last weekend. Bottle traded to me as an extra, forget who sent it, sorry. Iím not a bid Mild Ale fan, which shouldnít be reflected in my rating of the style, I know, but I wasnít very imressed with this beer. A thin beer that really didnít stand out much in any way. It wasnít bad, but I would go out of my way to try it again.

j12601 (7955) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - APR 8, 2010
On tap at Resurrection Ale House. Pours a just hazed brown with a thin to medium sized tanned beige head. A bit of smoke, malt, and popcorn, more like caramel corn than movie popcorn, as itís not buttery, just warm popcorn, bready, . Curious. Medium bodied, light cola flavors, but a touch watery. Malty, but still laid back. Finishes with a slightly sweet toasty nutty bitterness.

riversideAK (5738) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - APR 6, 2010
Nose of earthy and nutty malt notes, a hint of cola and caramel, and a light hop presence. Pours darker amber with a beige lasting head and noticeable bubbly carbonation, slightly sticky lace. Toasty and nutty with a tangy hop presence and lingering pumpernickel bread flavors. Rather highly carbonated, malty flavors linger, but body remains light. Very easy to drink, and enjoyable. Very to style, I like milds.

Elwood (3336) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - APR 4, 2010
Serving: 12 oz. bottle from Total Wine Sterling. Pours a deep amber color with a foamy off-white head. The nose has a bit of caramel, a slight earthy bitterness, and a bit of pumpernickel. The flavor leans heavily on nuttiness and caramel from the malt. Mildly bitter, the hops give a little balance. This is clearly a mild brew, coming in almost watery in terms of mouthfeel. It has a light body leading to a slightly sour, dry finish. Itís a mild so I canít be too hard on it, but I really could go for a little more flavor here. Not the worst brew Iíve ever had, but it is a good reminder why I like a full flavored beer.
