COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Ring Neck Braun Ale is the initial offering in the Brau Single Batch Series of beers. A perfect autumn ale, this big double nut brown ale is dry and fruity, yet surprisingly drinkable. Nutty flavor is derived from both biscuit malt and toasted oats. A hint of raspberry and classic British hops round out this mild and complex brown ale.

MeadMe (1645) - Fishhawk, Florida, USA - FEB 13, 2010
A: Pours a nice dark nutty brown with amber tones showing through. Nice tall tan head that dies to a big bubbly ring. Nice chunks of spotty lace left behind as this one is consumed. S: Wonderful sweet malt aromas. Bold brown sugar and caramel. Nuts and toffee. Mild chocolate as well. T: Now this is not an extreme beer lovers dream, what it is though is a real nice brown ale. Wonderful brown sugar sweetness. Notes of chocolate malt with wonderful roast. Lots of almond and pecans. M: Medium in body, smooth, almost creamy. D: Wonderful, tasty and damn drinkable. Did not even know this brewer existed. Its a win for me, and I am usually not a fan of malty brews.

BigBeer45 (1496) - Michigan, USA - JUL 8, 2011
Bottle, this Brown Ale had a clear red-ruby pour and gave a one finger light tan colored head, carbonation was medium or so, a mild center stream with various streams of bubbles at the sides of the glass, left some spots and fingers of lacing on the sides of the glass, this beer had aromas of chocolate, caramel, toasted malt, some nut and brown sugar sweetness, I did not notice the hops in this beer, the flavors are chocolate, toasted malt, nut, caramel and brown sugar sweetness, this beer finished with toasted malt, caramel and a little sweetness, the finish is drier than the typical Brown Ale but with hardly any bitterness, the mouth feel was about medium, a nice Brown Ale, I would drink this again.

Bottle. Biscuty and lightly toasted malt aroma. A hint of cocoa powder, which I imagine derives form the oats. Pours a fairly attractive rich brown with some nice amber highlights. Flavor is slightly nutty with some malt and oats. A tough of roastiness. Nice offering! Keep it comin, Dustin and crew!

Onslow (1466) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - AUG 20, 2011
Pour from a12 oz bottle. Deep brwon brew iwth very thin head. Very light carbonation. Great aroma of malt, roasted malt, fruit, and nuts. Taste is sweet malt start with nutty overtones and hints of fruit, a little of the fuggles hops assert themselves in the finish. Palate is good but could do with a little more carbonation - maybe the bottles I got were a little flat. As is, a very fine brown ale!

Autumn Brew Review 07
Out of the many high gravity brews I sampled, this beer was against that mold. However, what I sampled was a nice brown ale that was surprisingly complex. What I discovered was flavors of caramel malt, some dried fruit, and a roasted nut background. Very solid. Besides the doppelbock, I would consider this my second favorite Brau bros. brew to date.
