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.

UPDATED: APR 7, 2014 average brown ale...i thought this would be a lot tastier like previous brau bros beers i have tried...a little recipe tweaking and this could be real good.

12 oz. bottle. Pours cola colored with no head. Aroma was coffee, roasted malt and nutty. Taste was a little flat but overall okay.

12 oz. bottle. Nutty, dry, slightly sharp aroma features Nutella, toast, carob, and caramel scents. Interesting smell. Pours a clear, dull copper to light auburn. Sparkling liquid. Large amount of fluffy, cream-colored head. Produces a smattering of lacing. Simple, sweet taste features caramel and brown sugar flavors. Dull aftertaste. Light body and watery; insubstantial. A bit lively on the palate. This is not my style of beer.

A strange tasting brew. Clear brown medium color. Very small off white head that quickly diminishes. Extremely small notes of nuts and caramel. Watery in texture and light in carbonation. It has a very strange flavor, I taste some sauerkraut in the back end. Might be because of drinking some Surly Darkness before rating this one that it tastes so bad.

Thanks to Bob for the bottle! Poured clear coppery-orange with a short-lived cap of off-white head. The aroma picked up nutty notes, caramel, and wet hay with accents of cereal.. not much hoppage to note. The flavor found nutty and biscuit character at the core with hints of dark fruit and earthy bitterness around.. brighter and prickly as it warmed up, and it seemed like some combination of degraded hops and boozage.. toasty and sharp on the finish. Medium-bodied with creamy carbonation on the palate.. just a poor transition to the sharper stuff on the edges (the really didnt do a lot of good).. not bad.

12 oz bottle. Poured clear dark copper brown in color with a thin white ring of bubbles. Aroma of nuts, toasted malts. Tastes of toasted malts, mild earthy hops, nutty, weird citrus note that doesnt seem to fit the rest of beer. thin body. eh.

Bottle, like four squares two are white two are green. Lots of text, didn't read it.... Dark beer, toasty smell... Toasty flavor. Decent. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Dominated by dry, expansive, weak caramel malt. Most noticeable is the mouthfeel - large-bubbled watered-down-extract expanding to the the degree your cheeks bulge.

Hmm, ringneck Braun as in that bum cheater Ryan Braun? Im sure its not but the name alone made me hesitant to try it. Upon opening, the beer is the absolute antithesis of Ryan Braun and gushed out of the bottle before I could get it over the sink or glass. Braun is perhaps the slowest and most boring pre at bat hitter in major league history and makes Mike Hargrove (the human rain delay) look fast. The beer pours a cherrywood brown with a mammoth brown crown that fades slowly. That aroma is grainy and sour with nuts, malt and caramel in the background. The taste is overly sweet with chocolate, nuts, a bit of breadiness and I do detect some raspberry as well. The body is a touch too sudsy and unbalanced as the 2012 Brewers Lineup with the sweetness lasting long after each sip. Perhaps my hatred for Ryan Braun has come through a bit too much, but this malt bomb of a beer just isnt my thing.
