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.

Very clear, ruby-tinted amber color. Long lasting fluffy head and strong lacing.

Mild aroma of lightly toast bread, biscuity malt, and a very English kind of hoppiness. Kent, goldings, or both, perhaps.

Smells and tastes very traditional. Balanced but falls a bit further on the malty side. Bitterness is low and mostly felt in the finish and pleasantly lingering aftertaste. Dark toasted bread flavors most noticed; body is lightly creamy with medium to low carbonation.

Very easy to drink but not particularly crisp or refreshing. Still, enjoyable if unspectacular. Clearly fashioned after the old-school British pub style ales. Worth a shot.
