Moose Drool Brown AleMoose Drool Brown Ale

Brewed by:
Big Sky Brewing Company
Montana, United States

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.

Back in 2009 at a dark diner in Montana, remember it a bit 'hopsy" , i don't have much of a nose for phenol like things, it was not thin, it had some substance, adequate head. I was attracted to the name, yes, i would try it again, i prefer dark beer/ale , cheers

Poured 12oz bottle into pint glass.

Moose Drool pours a dark shade of brown. Thin head lingers. It's definitely similar to other Brown Ales I've had. Good flavor, not too overwhelming. I would recommend this beer if you like other Brown Ales. I would drink this one again.

Montana mixer - 12 oz. bottle poured into a pint glass.

Pours dark mahogony brown with with light layer of brown foam. Caramel smell. Some toffee. Smooth chewy sweet nutty taste - light sweetness, very mild hops. Soft close. Like liquid dessert.

Good brown ale, tasty.

12 fl oz brown glass bottle with standard pressure cap served into a generic hefeweissbier glass in low altitude Los Angeles, California. Reviewed live.

A: Pours a three finger head of hardly any cream, decent thickness, and poor retention. Pours a very dark auburn.

Sm: Amber hops, nuts, and caramel. A moderate strength aroma.

T: Nuts and caramel. That's about it. It's nicely balanced, but the build isn't anything special. It's decent.

Mf: Smooth and wet. About the right thickness. For a brown ale, it's too smooth and wet.

Dr: Very drinkable for a brown ale, but it betrays the style. I'd try it on draught, but it's largely unremarkable. It's decently priced for what it is as an import.
