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.

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.

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.
