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.

Bottled. This is a mild? News to me. "Pugilist style ale" is not exactly the most descriptive write-up for a beer. Iím 90% done with this beer and it just tastes like an "ale," in the most generic sense possible. Light cookie and earthy english hops, with a mild, vegetal, slightly lactic flavor. Uber-generic.

12 oz. bottle-brownish red whit decent white head. mild malt character to the nose. mild hop bitterness followed by some toasty malt notes, mixed in with some fruity esters, and a little residual sweetness. nice version of the style and relatively flavorful for the abv

On tap in Philly airport. Nice amber body with a descent head that is a kind of gross dusty gray brown color. Aroma, not much... not much at all. Flavor is weird dusty old chocolate, kind of like a too old and oxidized smoked. Medium body with medium carbonation. Overall: not my favorite.

12 oz bottle from Oak Tree. Pours a ruby brownish with a small fizzy mostly white head. Aroma is malt forward with notes of chocolate, nutts, brown bread toast and vinegar. Medium bodied with a fizzy full mouthfeel and bubbly carbonation. Flavor isnít quite as complex as the aroma and very chocolate malty with a tiny hine of cherry fruitiness. Sessionable enough but the palate is a little too full for something so light in ABV billing itself as a session ale.

UPDATED: SEP 30, 2014 (Bottle) Iím not familiar with this style of beer. This brew tasted a little like a wheat or half-wheat beer. It had a little bit of bitterness, and yeastiness, but it also had some of the sourness that characterizes some wheat beers. A little boring or generic, but also fairly balanced and easy drinking. Not my favorite style of beer, but has a muted and controlled character that I can see some people liking.

Brawler is a dark amber color with a nice thin white collar. The aroma has a faint malty biscuit, with a nice nuttiness. Brawler has a very pleasant flavor with a faint amount of nuttiness, roasty malt, some honey, malty biscuit. The palate has a very pleasant nice smooth full roast ending.

Brewed in the USA....... On cask at the General !!! pours a brownish amber color with a medium off white head. Aroma of caramel, roasted malts and chocolate. The taste is also of caramel, malts and some hops. The mouthfeel was smooth yet there was a slight bitterness to go along with a well balanced body. Very nice and easy to drink !!!

Nate (3759) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 6, 2009
From bottle. Nice toasted grain aroma with light caramel sweetness and some light hop bitterness. Aroma reminds me initially of an Altbier. Light note of diacetyl. Clear amber-copper with light amber colored foamy head. Medium light body with medium carbonation. Starts with bit of toasted malt and caramel. Light diacetyl and not much hops. Nutty sweet, barely-bitter finish. After has a little carbonic acid tang.
