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.

Thanks, Ethan.

A really nice looking Mild: semi-transparent brown body, plenty of manila-colored head & lace, good retention.

Herbs and a mixture of grains in the malty aroma. Taste is pretty bland & watery, which is style-appropriate but not what I'm looking for in a beer.

Highly sessionable. Would much rather play beer pong with this than any of the BMC alternatives. That said, I can't see myself ever buying this beer for myself.

look: 2.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Honeyed brown/caramel color. Overpour caused a fizzy head to dwindle. Translucent. 2.5

Lightly roasted grains, walnut, earthy hops. 3.0

Tangy as hell. Citrus hops peel back layers of orange rind and lime. Kilned grain offers some crisp toffee and crabapple esters around nutty and earthy flavors. A tad too rigid and sweet. Finishes tart and bitter. 3.5

Burpy and brushing. Medium body is cruising. A little mouth-drying. Acidic feel. 3.0

Overall, it's not too bad. Malt flavors are almost there, but the hops are a little confusing. Still a recognizable dark mild. 3.5
