American Brown Ale |  5.30% ABV

Availability: Year-round

Notes/Commercial Description:
It's chocolate brown in color with a creamy texture. A malty beer with just enough hop presence to keep it from being too sweet. The aroma mostly comes from the malt with a hint of spice added by the hops. Moose Drool is brewed with pale, caramel, chocolate, and whole black malts; and Kent Goldings, Liberty, and Willamette hops.

12 oz. bottle -- great label!

Pours out a deep brown color with a head slightly less than 2 fingers. It smells a little sweet and nutty. The taste is a little sweet as well. The hops are subtle. It has a nice chocolate and roasted malt flavor. It goes down smooth and crisp.

Poured a nice rich brown with a one finger tan head. It looks quite nice and inviting. Scents of bready malt, caramel, brown sugar and slight alcohol. A very sweet aroma for a brown ale, high in the sugary aromas but still with a nice hit of bready malt. The alcohol was surprising, but overall not a bad aroma profile. Flavor begins with caramel, toffee and brown sugar flavors that carry throughout. In the middle undertones of nuttiness and toasted malt appear which are nice, but not as apparent as they should be in a brown ale. The finish is sweet, but with a more overt presence of the nutty and toasted flavors as well. Aftertaste is nutty and toasted malt. A very sweet flavor profile for a brown ale, quite malty but not as bready, nutty and toasty as I like. Still not bad. Mouthfeel is medium bodied and stick with moderate carbonation. It's a good feel that compliments the malty nature of the flavor profile quite well. Pretty good. Overall this is a good American Brown Ale. It's got a nice bready, malty nose and a sweet, malty flavor profile and mouthfeel that works in the flavor's favor. I just wish there was a touch more toasted malt and nut-like flavors, but otherwise it's a solid brown.

Delightfully malty, and delicious. have enjoyed it on tap and from the can. Of course, the tap is better, but the can is available in my home! Clean and crisp tasting. Pours nicely into glass, serves well. enjoy saying that I am drinking moose drool, but more importantly I enjoy the taste

Poured from a bottle into a plastic cup (all they had at the Central Market cafe). Color is dark amber with a nice amber note in the light. Fluffy head that quickly disappears, but good small bubble support.

Enjoyed the toasted nuts and the chocolate with caramel as others have mentioned. A good mix for a brown ale.

Chocolate and nuts in the flavor are really good. The mouth is a little thin, but not as badly as some failed brown ales. This was a refreshing, enjoyable beer that I will definitely grab in the future.
