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.

Reddish brown color, leaves some nice lacing on the glass. Really smooth and very malt-forward. Faint dry bitter finish.

Theydon_Bois (8668) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - DEC 4, 2013
Bottle at Eulogy Tavern, PHL, 30/11/13. Dark chestnut brown with a moderate light beige covering. Nose is toffee, bready malts, biscuit, pinch of spice. Taste comprises bready malt, toffee, bread dough, touch of dark fruit, earthy. Medium bodied, prickly carbonation - over cooked. Adequate mild but nothing I’d want to return to.

DrSilverworm (6371) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 3, 2013
12oz bottle, thanks to Scott. Bottling date appear to read 09/19/13. Totally clear sort of auburn brown red color. Little grayish white head, leaves good splotches and ropes of lace. Good chocolately, toasty malt character. Maybe a slight metallic emptiness in the aroma. Smooth, soft, light to moderate strength carbonation. Lightly dry fish, lighter body. Moderate to bigger bitter taste, little sweetness. Great English-style dark session ale. Was very good to wash my sandwich down with.

Chudwick (2145) - Cincyucky, Kentucky, USA - NOV 24, 2013
12oz bottle thanks to DrSilverworm - pours deep amber with light tan head. Nose is caramel. Sessionable for sure. Slight hop presence. Label has an old fashioned boxer duking it out with what appears to be the devil (of the Goethe sort despite the lack of hoofed feet). timid for a brawler.

Pours clear copper brown with a very frothy off white head. Tastes light and malty, like grains, nutty, very light citrus and pine. Light body and low/medium carbonation. Smells like malt, hops, creamy, and nutty.
