One of my all time favorite beers. Perfect beer all round. Nice and malty and perfect flavor. A great sessionable beer. Nothing wrong with this beer at all!

The closest American craft to a true English ale I've tasted.

I believe this beer is severely underrated. When it comes to session ales, this beer is at the top of the list for me. I have never had a session beer excluding a session IPA with this much depth of flavor and malt character then the Yards Brawler. A buddy of mine and I were talking and we both a agree that this beer goes fantastic with pretzels. Specifically sourdough pretzel nuggets. Overall it is one of my top 5 favorite beers ever and not to mention it did win silver at the GABF.

Yards Brewing Co. Brawler, English pub ale
Look: Dark brown with white head. Good carbonation, but not too much there which fits into the style.
Smell: There is really not much going on with the smell. I didn't smell much of anything.
Taste: It is a super smooth malty beer with notes of caramel and some nutty flavors. There is a light sweetness and some roasyness to it. I don't taste a ton of hops per se, but it does have a slightly bitter finish which may be hops, or roasty bitterness. I love the malty aspects of this beer. They have really done well with that. The only thing that would put it over the top is if it had a bit more of an aroma to it.
Feel: Smooth and light, but a decent body.
Overall: A great session beer, but also just a good malt foreward beer with alot of flavor. I will have this again most likely soon.
