COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Moose Drool is our Brown Ale. Far and away the best selling beer brewed in Montana, Moose Drool is chocolate brown in color with a creamy texture. Our brown ale is a malty beer with just enough hop presence to keep it from being too sweet. The aroma also mostly comes from the malt with a hint of spiciness being added by the hops. Moose Drool is brewed with pale, caramel, chocolate, and whole black malts; and Kent Goldings, Liberty, and Willamette hops. It has an original gravity of 13 degrees Plato, and is 4.2% alcohol by weight, 5.3% by volume.
Note: ABV went down to 5.1%.

Bit of a roasted flavor. Not too many hops. Good brown color, no red like some other brown ales. THis is a darker brown ale, similar to a porter.

Just like a typical Amber Ale, only darker. An aside here, but there's a prof at Univ Oregon Law who gives out Moosehead beers in class as prizes for knowing trivia questions. He's very well liked and every year for the past 20 or so years, the previous year's students have a roast in his honor. They storm the classroom and take over the class. The next two hours are filled with skits about specific cases from the class, songs, and retrospectives on the professors life. Cases of Moosehead are brought in and are given to the students and professor. There's a "secret" word (the subject of the class) and whenever that word is said (oh, about 150 times during the two hours), that professor has to drink. Well, since we're in the PNW with so many truly great beers around, Moosehead is hard to come by within a week or two of that event, so someone brought Moose Drool for their part of the beer donation. Anyway, that's where I first had this beer two years ago. Where was I? Oh yeah, a beer review... Pours a dark brown with a decent head and minimal lacing. Smells and tastes like a typical brown ale; rather malty without being as sweet as a typical amber, offset with just enough hops. Nothing special, nothing great. Mouthfeel and drinkability are, likewise, average. Decent beer that will always hold a dear spot in my heart. But if you didn't have that class, you'll find this to be mediocre. Not bad at all, just not great.

Bottle. Yeah its a brown ale, so it was never going to be anything mind blowing, but this faired OK. Nutty caramel and chocolate, cookie-ish malts. Nice light palate, yet enough flavour to keep you interested, i would have been happy neough to drink this for night, but there was too many other beers (really good beers) to try. This wasnt bad.

RateandPillage (426) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - APR 20, 2005
Pours reddish-brown with an average off-white head. Malty and woody (oak?) aroma that carries through slightly to the flavor. Some nutty, roasty flavors. Not bad, but I didnt think this one was anything special.

BLBF. Not much aroma. Foamy brown pour. Decent blast of coffee, toffe and caramel. Maybe a hint of chocolate. Finishes sugary and clinging.

Enjoyable, not great. Beautfiul dark reddish brown with a large tan head. Taste of a little chocolate, a little malt, a little hops. No real intensity of flavor. Small in the mouth as well. Pleasant and enjoyable, simple, not off-putting.
