This brew pours a clear brown with bold amber highlights and a thin white head. The aroma is of roasted malt, coffee, and mild brown sugar. The flavor is a bit hoppy for an English brown ale but is followed by a molasses and sweet male finish. The mouthfeel is medium. Moat Mountain Bone Shaker Brown is a decent brew, recommended.

Gotta love the packaging for this beer. I could do without the sexualized catchphrases on the label, but otherwise, the bomber-sized can is badass, for sure.

Pours a very clear reddish brown. Pleasing color, but modest head. Okay lacing, not much retention. (3.5)

Aroma is clean. Caramel, light ester, no hop. (3)

Flavor is reliant on caramel malt rather than brown and/or chocolate malt. Tangy and spicy hops supporting in the background. Moderate bitterness, toffee flavor lingers nicely. Mouthfeel is a touch on the watery side, honestly. Medium carbonation. (3, 2.5)

Brown ale by default. Not a great example of the style, but nevertheless drinkable. Lacks malt depth. (3.5)

Pours clear, light brown in color, with 1/4 inch head. Taste is nut, light tea, and cracker. Solid, slightly above average brown ale. Would not pass this one up, but I prefer other Moat beers more.
