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 dark amber with a small head. Noted a caramel aroma. Smooth, but slightly oily mouthfeel. I really enjoyed this one...

DavidHawman (24) - Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 7, 2009
Poured a dark amber with a little head and no lacing. Aroma is faintly of hops and maybe citrus. Taste is mild and finishes with a bit of smokiness. Palate is light. Not one of my favorites.

grandet (501) - Scranton, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 31, 2009
Bottle. Poured a dark brown color with a nice malt sweetness in the aroma. Taste is very drinkable and tasty. Very well balanced. I like this one.

beernbourbon (1305) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - OCT 22, 2009
Bottle in Philly airport. Pour is copper color with small white head. Aroma is light hops, faint chemical, and light malt. Flavor is faintly malty, light chemical again with a very crisp and faintly hoppy finish. Well, it certainly is a session beer as the label indicates. Not a hard beer to drink.

EithCubes (4943) - New Jersey, USA - OCT 17, 2009
UPDATED: DEC 9, 2009 Bottle. 1980’s-era homebrew smell, a little grainy pale malt and faint noblish hop with a little nutty accent. Malt-forward, indeed! Dark chestnut brown, still translucent body with a sudsy tan head. Taste is that of a mild brown / nut brown ale, mild sourness in the back, but otherwise relatively hearty malt on the whole. Light, crisp carbonation, dry nutty aftertaste. Medium body. Englishy hops are in excellent balance. Just a touch of roast in with cream, and there’s enough interesting things here to find reward at the bottom of four or five pints.

Acetobacter (816) - Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 11, 2009
Enjoyed from a 12oz bottle in a whiskey snifter. The beer pours a deep ruby color, with a small just off-white head. Carbonation is low. Aromas of fruity esters come through in the nose, as does what seems to be a little bit of tea. Also, some toffee character comes through, as well. The palate is fairly light in body, but certainly not insipid. The interplay of the character malts and the moderate to strong esters thrown by the yeast yields a pleasing melange of flavors. Overall, a nice session beer.

ElJefe (553) - Rochester, New York, USA - SEP 28, 2009
Pours a nice copper color with a creamy light tan head. Aroma of cereal, bread, and caramle is marred by a metallic presense. Malty, bready, nutty flavor with a touch of roastiness and fruit. Minimal hops in this one, as would be expected for the style. Relatively substantial mouthfeel. A solid if unremarkable mild, but a nice session brew that I would definitely have again. A cask version might be interesting. (12 oz. bottle)

hopdog (8952) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 27, 2009
On tap at the Grey Lodge. Poured a medium brownish/deep amberish color with a smaller sized off white head. Aromas of roastiness, chocolate, and some caramel. Tastes of the same roastiness, caramel, and a little earthy. Not bad for a 4% beer for sure.

Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - SEP 21, 2009
Bottle. Pours an amber body with an off white head. Malty with some roasted malt a hint of chocolate and some mild sweetness however the malt also carries with it a dank toffee and caramel flavor. Creamy and thin at the same time. Hmm i am stumped i like this i suppose not something i usually say with yards or milds...
