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.

Typical brown ale. I'm not a fan of brown ale otherwise this would be an above average beer. Taste has depth to it with a caramel taste and a chocolate malt finish. One of the better brown ales I have had. Would not stock my fridge with it because of my own taste in beers but good to have some around for company that does.

Appearance- From a heavy growler pour there is considerable tan pebbly heady, dark red brown with root beer like appearance and carbonation

Smell- slight caramel and light toffee overtones, hops seem of the noble variety aroma

Taste- caramel on the front and toasted on the rear, light roast bitterness on the finish. Chocolate notes are sweet yet balanced.

Mouthfeel- Medium bodied, slightly watery feel

Overall- Gotta love the Moosie, this is the beer that started me on crafts. Best enjoyed around the campfire.

Serving type: growler

A: Dark brown in color with shades of dark red. Lots of carbonation, with an eggshell white head. Mild head retention, with some foam lingering around the top. Spotty lacing. Very good clarity.

S: Coffee comes through at first, with lots of mild roasted scents. I also pick up some scent that is similar to butter toffee or toffee popcorn. No hop aroma comes through. Pleasant smell.

T: Very faint coffee flavors along with an extremely milt bitter backbone...almost no bitterness but just enough to offset the very mild sweetness. There is a light sweetness that comes through like a nut-bread flavor. Very light mineral quality to the beer as well, like drinking spring water.

M: Feels light bordering on medium, very mellow. Very very light bitterness. Very smooth and an easy drinker. Feels very wet, with no astringency.

O: Overall I really enjoyed the beer and would buy it again. Overall I liked the slight nutty character and roasted coffee character in the beer the most. I didn't have any problems with the beer.
