Yards Brewing Co.
Pennsylvania, United States

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.

A: Amber colored. Minimal head and no lacing. A nice color though.

S: Smells sweet and bready. Smelling some dark fruit in there too.

T: Much more flavor than I expected definitely malt forward and some real toastiness in this. Semi-sweet and there is a plum or currant like flavor in there.

M: Medium bodied pretty creamy but also at the very end seems a tad watery.

O: At 4.20% ABV I can see this becoming a regular session beer for me. Very impressed with this puppy.
