BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Big Sky Brewing Company
Montana, United States
bigskybrew.com

Style: American Brown Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.10%

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.

It has been a while since I had this beer. As I recall, I had it on tap several years ago and was not impressed. However, just tried if from a bottle and I was pleasantly surprised. Looks good, nice and smooth feel. Nutty taste and smell. Nice and malty. A really good brown ale! Won't wait several year for the next one.

I had this on tap as a Nitro. Not sure if that is how it's normally served, but it definitely affects my score positively.

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
