COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
BRASS ALE6.1% ABV, 20 IBUs Slacker may be the laid back little brother of Brass Monkey, but he still knows how to get funky. This flavored ale has a smooth malt foundation layered with a zest of orange peels. The addition of vanilla beans creates a creamy, slightly sweet character that melds seamlessly with the robust citrus notes. Slacker is certainly a chimp off the ol’ block. AVAILABILITY: 6-pack bottles and on draft

FROTHINGSLOSH (8139) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 2, 2017
Robert brought this one back from a trip out west. +++ Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a dark golden-bronze color with a large foamy orange-white head that lingered and left decent lacing. The aroma was vegetal, sweetish and malty with a touch of vanilla and citrus. The flavor was odd and off with artificial vanilla, a yeasty undertone and citrus. Long finish. Moderately full bodied. Not good.

12 ounce bottle. Pours a clear orange color with a small white head. A light sweet fruity nose. Sweet, dusty, grainy, some oranges, a bit of toast. Round earthy core. Decent, a bit of glue like flavors that I sometimes get.

shoulderbroken (4256) - Tokyo, JAPAN - OCT 4, 2016
Tap at Vertere. Bit weird. Pale ale like but with just a hint of the orange and vanilla. Not sure they’re a great combination. Bit of citrus in the aroma. After a couple of sips getting more vanilla at the end. This is quite nice, but feel like something’s clashing somewhere.

KansaiBeerLvrs (5362) - Kyoto, JAPAN - JUL 18, 2016
6.1% A brassy orange with a big fruity aroma that is lush aramel and hops. A med-full body that had lots of lemon, caramel and richness. A decent beer but kind of too high in ABV for summer. 3.4

I don’t know. I just don’t feel like the two flavors (orange peel and vanilla) come together very well.

Big orange peel in the aroma followed by a flavor of orange pith, pine and a mild vanilla. The beer pours a clear, golden-honey topped with a somewhat creamy head the color of buttermilk. Visually enticing, the beer warms and opens up in flavor as well, luring me back for more. The finish is slightly dry, short and tasty. Honestly, I did not expect to enjoy this brew, nor did I expect to be able to recommend it. Recommend it I do. If you enjoy a bit of orange, a warm bit of vanilla caramel flavor finish in an otherwise very refreshing beer, try it. Let it warm up, let it wrap itself around your tongue. I guarantee, you’ll be glad you did.

Hayesryan (19) - Moscow, Idaho, USA - JAN 14, 2016
On tap, 10oz tulip glass, slight quickly dissipating head, clear golden, light clean doughy aroma with maybe the faintest hint of orange, bright easy mouthfeel, touch of vanilla, medium-full body, medium sweetness. Perhaps you should smell an orange or try this next to a taste of orange juice; I can’t really find the orange flavor, but I don’t really consider it lacking. Thanks to No-Li for keeping it interesting.

BrewDad (5667) - Olympia, Washington, USA - DEC 4, 2015
Easy drinking nice beer. Not a huge flavor or overall fruit addition so that was missing nice easy drinking pale is what I call this.

3.4
Sledutah (7833) - Utah, USA - NOV 19, 2015
12oz bottle from Huckleberry’s in Spokane
Pours clear light golden with a small white head, some lacing. Aroma is doughy, oranges and grassy. Flavors are grassy, oranges, grapefruit, vanilla with a mild bitterness
Perry good, light but good flavors.
