Boasting superior taste and champion flavor, the Brawler is crafted in the style of English session ales. This malt-forward, ruby colored ale is great for when you want to go a few rounds.

pours dark ruby brown with a thick but quickly dissipating off-white head. aroma of roasted malt, loads of caramel and toffee, and raisins. flavor is caramel, roasted hops, and a light treacle/toffee. dark fruit and coffee are in the background. coffee and dark caramel malt flavors last forever. decent session ale.

jredmond (5025) - Manhattan, New York, USA - JUN 14, 2009
Bottle. Pours a dark ruby red body with no head. The aroma is light malt. The taste is a mix of malt, sugar, and some grass hop.

MrBunn (2384) - The Wet Side of a Dry Town, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 1, 2009
Bottle. Pours a brown that lets a lot of light through and has a thin khaki head. Aromas are mild (sorry, couldnít help it), but have a lot of light earthiness and nutiness. Flavor is fine and reflects the nose fairly accurately, but comes off as a little washed out. Still, this is a pretty good session...

FROTHINGSLOSH (4547) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 20, 2009
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a dark ruby brown color with a huge beige head. The aroma was lightly sweet and malty. The flavor was lightly tangy and had a malty, fruity, nutty and roasty elements. The mouthfeel was nicely smooth. Decent.

Draft at American Bar and Grill in Chester Springs, PA. Thereís really not much to say about this beer. The beer was a brown with red hues. Little if any carbonation. Looked like an oil slick on top. Only smell the maltiness with no hop aroma. Caramel flavors dominate with little if any hop indication. Mouthfeel is very oily with little body. Although this beer is touted as a session beer, I didnít really find it enjoyable and couldnít do more than one glass.

NJBeerman013 (1043) - Hamilton Twp., New Jersey, USA - APR 27, 2009
Draft. It pours a murky brown in color with small, almost non existent head. The aroma is slightly sweet, hinting at a mild malty flavor with little in the way of hops. I was right. Very smooth malty beer with roasted, oak, brown sugar, and very mild sour (citrus) notes. Very drinkable, great session beer as evidenced by my line of empty glasses on the bar.

This is a mildly enjoyable ale, but I donít get the superior taste and champion flavor, as the description states. I understand itís supposed to be a mild, English-style session ale, but itís pretty much bland and boring. It pours a dark brown color with a minimal tan head. The head leaves a nice amount of lacing around the glass. There isnít much to the aroma, though, either. The nose features only slight hints of toffee, caramel malts, brown sugar and almonds. The body is very smooth, drinkable and enjoyable, but doesnít boast much of a palate. The flavors are very bland up until the finish, where it ends a little sour and a bit too sweet. There is quite a bit of bready notes in the aftertaste, as well. You can definitely go a few rounds with this, as you can pretty well pound them without interferring too much with your palate. This ale is just too unimpressive and bland.

Draft at Caponeís, then in a bottle from Craft Ale. Pours deep brown with off-tan head. Nose is caramel malt, some brown sugar, nutty notes, with flavors to match. Decent complexity, good balance , and more flavor than most mild ales in this. I like this beer, and drink it often. I recommend you do the same, lest you get a hamhock to the backside of your head, punk!
