Big Sky Brewing Company Moose Drool Brown Ale
Hello beer lovers and welcome to another edition of the NorCal Beer Blog's brew review.
Tonight’s featured beer is Big Sky Brewing Company Moose Drool Brown Ale. Yet another beer sourced from my recent road trip I had tried this beer many times in the past, always liked it and this is one of the few beers I’ll be reviewing that CAN be purchased in NorCal.
From the Big Sky Brewing Company website: “Moose Drool is one of the Nation’s premier Brown Ales. For a dark beer ‘tis extremely drinkable and an excellent complement to most foods. Four different malts are used in this brew. We also do four hop additions consisting of a combination of East Kent Goldings, Liberty, and Willamette.”
Let’s get started!
Appearance: Pours a dark brown color with red highlights, a large tan head and spotty lacing.
Aroma: Chocolate, roasted malts, nuts, toffee and caramel.
Taste: Sweet and nutty with roasted, caramel and cocoa malts with an ever so slight hop bitterness.
Overall: Malt forward, but balanced well, Big Sky Brewing Company Moose Drool Brown Ale is excellent. At 5.1% ABV throwing a few of these back is easy drinkin’. I’m happy I had a chance to drink one of these again as it had been a few years. I don’t think it will be a few more before I have one again.
