On tap at Johnny Rockets in Philly airport. Served in the ugly Sam Adams glass. Golden brown pour with no head and no lacing. Smells like spoiled cabbage and didn’t taste any better. Fruity, caramel and cardboard. Not good at all. vtafro (7444) - Wayne, New Jersey, USA - DEC 24, 2010
Draft, assuming @ hulmeville, Brown pour with some tan head. Some toasted and sweet malt aroma and flavor. Velkyal (322) - 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. unclemike (3170) - Junction City Kansas, Kansas, USA - OCT 9, 2010
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. theisti (4179) - Kansas, USA - OCT 5, 2010
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.

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 (2362) - 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.
