Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: garcia2a on 12-10-2008

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 when you want to go more than a few rounds.

I'm a big fan of Philly (went to Swarthmore, shot films there).
But not yet a fan of this brewer. Is it the water?

A: No better or worse than any session English Ale - flattish, strong tea or cola colored, not much going on, not sticky.
S: Sweet, almost cola like. Along with same frat floor stink.
T: I find it way too sweet for sessions. (I dont add sugar to my coffee and I never ever drink soda)

Maybe I'm just attuned to the bright hop or the might yeast?
F: Sweet, never really bracing, not much of a food beer.

The best of the Yards lot. I live a stones throw away so I taste all their beers, a great product but Yards variety is lacking, as everything is good but nothing is great.

Lacks flavor. Disappointing for a Yards brew.

Highly drinkable, but no sacrifice on the flavor. If you enjoy malt forward flavors this is the light beer for you..4.2 ABV means you can go a few rounds with the Pugilist!

Definitely a beer to sip and not to drink in gulps. I love Yards.
