Notes/Commercial Description:
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.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured into a 16oz draft glass. The coloring is red amber with a nice head at pour. The head fades away with little lacing on the glass. The smell is very nice. It has little to no hop presence and the maltiness is well done. This beer has a really nice taste and feel to it. I would really like to have another. I would recommend this beer to a friend. How about that a Pittsburgh guy recommending a Philly beer : )

3.61/5  rDev -1.4%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Tasted On: 06-27-2014
Freshness: Bottled 10-21-2013
Packaging: 12 oz. brown bottle, pry-cap
Glassware: Nonic pint
Purchased: Received in a trade

Appearance is clear; dark amber in color. The head is a frothy 2 fingers high, with good lacing and retention.

Smells of brown bread and toasted malts.

The taste is at first very cola-like, with a light malt sweetness. It's then countered by some earthy bitterness and well as roasted grain notes. There is also a bit of a stale note that may come from the age on this sample.

Mouthfeel is medium in body with an average amount of carbonation. The finish is semi-dry and has lingering flavors of toasted malts.

Overall a good session beer, low in alcohol and easy to approach, it would go well with any meal an would also be a good gateway brew.
