Style: American Brown Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.10%

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.

This was my 2nd brown ale as well as my last. Low score on taste is probably not an accurate reflection just an opinion. Brown ales are not my cup of tea.

Pretty standard brown ale that is lighter in flavor and body than most, but not entirely for the worse. Very drinkable and a go-to for many Montana residents
