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: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Picked up day of PSU Ohiio State in 20014.

Appearance: 3/4 inch off white to tan head, light to medium brown in color, clear, high carbonation

Smell: molasses and caramel malt—a lot of malts

Taste: pale malt, toffee, and a small touch of tea and chocolate

Mouth feel: Not getting the high carbonation comments? Thin, light bodied, sweet start with a light bitter end/aftertaste.

Overall: Decent, especially for a low ABV. Good but not outstanding.
