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 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 (2727) - 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.

jgb9348 (5685) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - MAY 30, 2010
Deep dark brown coloured body with a very thin tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, alcohol and a touch of caramel. Medium-bodied; Assertive roasted malt flavours with a very nutty and almost pecan flavour. Some caramel and light sugars come through, but with a relatively mild body - only some gets through. Aftertaste shows some complexity, but the roasted malt and caramel tastes come through most. Overall, a decent beer - lighter than I expected, but showing some good complexity. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Total Wine in McLean, Virginia on 25-May-2010, sampled on the Eastern Shore of Virginia on 30-May-2010.

Reddish brown pour. Malty oxidized aroma. Smooth malt, toffee in the taste. Just ok.

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. It’s decent, but not great. Rated 4/18/10

Leafs93 (2113) - 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.

Bottle. Nice session beer. Decent aroma - malty, nutty. Flavor is slightly bitter, light caramel.
