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.

On draft at the Half Moon as an "English Ale," probably should have left it at that. The pour was copper-brown-reddish with a fairly weak head. The aroma was caramel, tofee, and brown sugar. The flavor was overly malty brown sugar sweet with some caramel, figs, lacking other fruity elements to smooth it out, maybe a touch of roast even. The mouthfeel was on par for the style, moderate body, slight acidity. Meh.

I didnít know what to make of this beer. It tasted almost like a smoked beer. Itís labeled a mild ale. There are no hops to be found but the is nothing else at all.

Bottle. Pours amber to light right red. Thick tan head that recedes quickly, Aroma of yeast and malt. Flavor is very mild, as are the body and finish. Decent beer for little money,

Rich Mahogany red color which looks even more impressive when held to a bright light. Average head and lacing that coats the side of the glass. Aroma is earthy like a stoudt, with some roasted malt. Flavor is roasted malt to start, finish is hoppy and a bit acidic Overall, another solid brew from Yards - these guys do an excellent job.

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.

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.
