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.

Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass at the "Blue & Grey" Pub in Gettysburg, PA. This beer is a slightly murky orangish color with a small white head. The aroma is big on malt with some caramel and spices following. The flavor is full of malt with some spices and yeasty bread. This beer is medium bodied with moderate carbonation. A surprisingly real treat, very enjoyable.

Toffee and roasted nuts on the aroma. No hop aroma detected. The malt aroma is strong. Amber brownish color. Super clear with a long lasting off white head. Taste is malt forward with no flavor hop detected. Rich malty favor with hints of nuts, bread and caramel. Mouthfeel us nice and smooth with medium carbonation and a medium low body. A slight lingering of bitterness on the end. Overall, a great mild. Easy to drink. Nice and malty with just the right touch of roasted grains. Definitely a go to session beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Poured from a bottle into Sam Adams bubble glass. I have had it on numerous taps as well but I prefer this one bottled. Very malty beer with a dry caramel like finish. This is my go to beer when I wanna pound a few for a while. Very drinkable and almost no hop taste which is great for a hop hater like myself. One of my faves and easily the best beer in Pennsylvania.

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.

Deep amber beer with a thick, creamy, white head, and a soft carbonation. notes of fresh bread, and some sweet malt aroma. some finishing touches of molasses and toffee at the end. I never knew existed a lightweight stoudt.

Yards Brawler is an excellent drinking beer, and when ever I’m in Philadelphia, I enjoy a few pints on this one on draught at a number of good Philly beer bars. This beer pours to a bright, burnt orange, to red color, with a thick, creamy, white head, and a soft carbonation. The nose on this beer is very malty, with lots of good biscuity and grainy aromas of fresh bread, and some sweet malt aroma. The palate is soft and fat on the tongue, with good fresh bread flavors, paired with light buttery flavor, and some hints of estery fruit. Yards Brawler finishes with more, good bready/sweet malt up front, then ends with some pleasing herbal hop bittereness, that rounds out the sweet and fruity character of this beer. This is just a great drinking beer, and a very pub grub, food friendly beer as well. Great beer to try on draught, and the experience is even better if you can try it in a great Phillly beer bar like Monk’s Cafe, or the Grey Lodge.

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.
