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.

Nice ruby, dark amber color with a decent head. Nutty, malty smell. Malty and sweet taste little to no hop flavor. This is a great session beer. Nice malty and dark drinkable beer.

Decent everyday drinking beer. Overall smell is a "regular" beer. No smells that really standout. The taste reminded me of similar qualities of a Scottish ale. Good everyday drinking beer.

Dark brown pour with light head. Smells neutral but nutty. First taste is like a Porter and then it’s all ale from there on. I could crush a couple of these after a long day of work. Great find.

Great brown ale. Good color. Goes down like a rich porter and finishes like an ale.

Bottle into an ale glass. Pour is a ruby with a fine head. Aroma is on the low side, but malt. Taste is a bitter malt. Finish is a bitter.

eelbasher (285) - New Jersey, USA - DEC 16, 2013
Chestnut brown pour with a small tan head. Just a ring of lace is left in he glass. Nutty, fruity aroma with a touch of toast. The flavor is toasted grain, light chocolate, dark fruit, and finishing full. Easy drinking and nothing special. Decent at best.

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

Theydon_Bois (9930) - 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.
