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.

Velkyal (321) - Gordonsville, Virginia, USA - NOV 15, 2010
A nice deep russet topped with an off white head. Nose was light spicy hops mingled with caramel and toffee. Taste was again sweet maltiness balanced with earthy hops. One problem though was that it was far too fizzy and needed a little while to calm down and let the flavours come through.

Brawler is a dark amber color with a nice thin white collar. The aroma has a faint malty biscuit, with a nice nuttiness. Brawler has a very pleasant flavor with a faint amount of nuttiness, roasty malt, some honey, malty biscuit. The palate has a very pleasant nice smooth full roast ending.

Shaker Pint draft at Jet Rock bar and grill, Concourse B, Philadelphia airport. Pour is hazed copper brown with a smallish tan head. Aroma is nutty toasted malt and a crystal maltiness. Taste is the crystal malt up front, followed by the nuttiness. Very much about the malt, but smooth. As it warmed, there was a tiny hint of a diacetyl, but not too much for the style. Palate was thin to medium bodied, lowish carbobation and a clean mineral finish. Nice session ale.

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.

r464 (2354) - Earth, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 5, 2010
A weak taste of balanced hops and malt that seems overly watered down. Lacking in the crisp finish I would expect from a pale ale.

neuromatt (1225) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 14, 2010
On tap at the Jet Rock Bar and Grill at Philadelphia airport, served in a shaker. Pours clear reddish brown with a small slightly rocky tan head. Head slowly fades, but leaves a small amount of lace. On the nose, aromas of dark fruit, apple, wood, and burnt notes. The flavour is malt-forward, moderately sweet throughout with a slight sour component. There is a hint of hops, but theyre definitely secondary. Burnt coffee notes enter towards the finish, along with sour apple. On the palate, it is light-medium in body with a smooth, watery texture and slight carbonation. Overall, this is a decent, sweetish mild. It is quite flavourful with a nice complement of fruity and roasty notes. 2010-08-13
