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.

Spied this on tap and had to try it. Call me cheap (or a lush) but spending $30+ for a case of low ABV beer didn't sit well with me. However $3 for a pint, bring it!
Cloudy, dark amber in appearance. Grainy and caramelly nose. Taste is malty, with good sweetness from caramel and biscuit malts. Fruity yeast presence as well and slight hop bitterness felt at the end. This is a damn fine malty and flavorful beer that's "only" 4.2 % ABV. I may have to pick up a case after all. Drinkability is very good, its light bodied, goes down smooth and creamy with a sweet finish.

Serving type: on-tap
