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.

12oz. bottle: This one pours a clear, amber color. There was a small off-white head that didn’t linger long or leave much lacing. Lighter but good aroma. Some malts, perhaps a touch of biscuit. The taste is a bit lighter, but pretty good. Caramel malts, but almost no sweetness. A touch of biscuit. A faint bitterness in the finish. A nice session beer!

I am definitely no expert in the tasting of beer. But, this is a fine tasting ale. Good taste, no bitterness. Pretty smooth for an ale. No head to speak of, but I think that's overrated in the beer world. After all, you don't drink foam. Good color, not too dark, not too light. Very drinkable. I like it.
