Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into pint glass.
Appearance: Pours a clear cherry-brown with a one-finger tan head. Nice lacing left on the glass as I drink.
Smell: Very malty, toasty, with a nice spicy smell.
Taste: Nice sweet malts, very roasty tasting, almost a coffee flavor. A tiny bit of bitterness in the finish, as well as a taste that kind of reminds me of prunes, which is a good thing.
Mouthfeel: Creamy and medium bodied, light carbonation. Not crisp but certainly refreshing and certainly not a sipper!
Overall: Probably one of my favorite's from Yards, roasty and delicious.
Serving type: bottle

Never had this beer before I bought a Varity Pack while in the Philadelphia Area. I have had the IPA and the Philadelphia Pale Ale, which I really like. The Brawler has a dark color with a great smell. The taste is smooth and very flavorful. Good after taste. When I am back in the Philadelphia Area, I will get more of this Ale.

Had this on cask today at Varga Bar in Philly.
The head was thick and creamy, and the beer is a pleasant dark brown color. There isn't a lot of flavor here, either in the smell or the taste. That's not really a problem. What flavor does exist is pleasant--I had this on cask, and the beer was quite warm, and there is really nothing NOT to like about the beer in terms of flavor. There's also nothing that will wow you either. However, I drank this very quick without noticing. It is an extremely drinkable beer, and the low ABV makes it one of the best session beers I can think of.
I've also had this on tap, and the carbonation gives it a little more action, but the smoothness of the cask can not be beat.
