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.

12 ounce bottle. Pours a murky brown/red with a medium white head. The aroma is nutty sugary notes. A sweet flavor; lots of toasted malts, sugary sweet flavor and nuts. Sort of hot and strong. Decent. An odd mild ale.

beerbill (3574) - Laurel, New York, USA - DEC 17, 2009
12 oz. bottle that I received as part of a Christmas gift from my friend Paul. Pours a mostly clear reddish amber with a moderate off-white head that lasted through the first quarter of the glass and left bits of lace. Mild but pleasant aroma of malt and just a bit of citrus. The flavor is predominantly malt with with some light bitterness at the finish. This is a nice problem-free beer that is very sessionable.

tmoreau (2985) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - DEC 1, 2009
Shared beer club 12 oz. bottle. Poured a clear, amber/brown with a modest, light tan foam to the head, and spots of the clingy foam as lacing. The aroma was a pleasant, moderate caramel malt scent. The flavor added a bit of roastiness, a touch of sweetness, and light bitterness and finishing dryness. Underwhelming but decently sessionable.

Thanks to my nephew for this. Brown pour with notes of caramel malt. Bready taste with some brown sugar. Thin in body but easy to drink. Nice beer but not much aroma

Pours a deep copper color. Small head. Aroma is of malt right away. Hops are not up front. Taste is very smooth and easy to drink. A very simple session beer, no bells or whistles here.

kramer (5393) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 21, 2009
12 oz bottle. Pours a clear dark brown body with a one inch tight bubbled fizzy off-white head that left some minimal lacing. The nose is fairly light with a little fruitiness and lightly grainy malt. It almost has a weird grape soda like note that is a bit off-putting. The flavor is malty with some toasted and slightly husky grains. Finishes with some light yeast and that weird grape flavor that seems out of place. Light bodied and very easy drinking with moderate fizzy carbonation. Can’t get into this one all that much, but it is pretty easy drinking.

crazyvin (2026) - New York, USA - NOV 21, 2009
My first of this style. A nice medium brown hue with an off white head that had good retention. Aroma had a nice malty caramel note, a subtle nuttiness to it. Flavor was similar to the aroma but it did have a nice light hop presence in the finish. Very easy to drink and smooth in the finish. A great session indeed.

Odyn (266) - New York, USA - NOV 20, 2009
Nice color, very ale-ish. Aroma is what you’d expect it to be, with a little bit of malt, but not so much that it is sweet. Well balanced flavor with a little dryness that is also light on hops. Finishes cleanly and is surprisingly refreshing with a little bit citrus like zing on the end.
