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.

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 (7456) - 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.

GT2 (9265) - San Diego County, California, USA - MAR 27, 2010
Sa-weet! My first mild ale. Pours a clear copper with a thin to non-existent off-white head. No retention or lace. Aroma is pretty powerful toasted malt, coffee, cream, raw Vienna malt. Taste is pretty much watered down cherry Coke. Pretty flat carbonation. Meh. Would definitely be a session beer- but not my type of session beer.

This beer smells like fresh sweat. Appearance is pretty good...nice amber, good head. Taste is pretty bad, nothing much to savor, just a dirty sweaty sock. Palate is thin like water. Overall, this beer sucks. Why is it rated so high? Just because Yards brews it. Avoid this one.

Bottle from Wine Warehouse, Charlottesville. Pours a deep red with a dusting of a head. Light caramel in the nose-- maybe a bit of maple too... a bitter Lipton teabag flavor with some fizz and some hint of grass. Um... not bad, not something Iíd seek out.

Aroma - basic malt; Appearance - deep reddish-brown, fluffy head, poor lacing; Taste - mild malt front, back has a faint roasted character, flavorless finish; Palate - crisp, extremely watered-down; Overall - little flavor, very light for the style, quite a disappointment, definitely doesnít live up to its name.

a kitchen sink kind of brew. it is a lightly hoppy and pleasantly disjointed hop brew so as to taste herb like with licorice, and even a trace of far off mint. aroma of a clean old beer joint ( i like that). malty frothy zingy carbonation to this deep brown and rooty tasting (with a little dirt still on the roots) beer its a take on an old style that to me seems successful... or maybe it is the old stuff. trace of fruit punch and id like to hear who can discern the fruits! good
