Another review due to the fact that I can’t sleep. I’m watching a documentary on gays and lesbians in third world countries. It’s actually quite interesting. It is definitely very different from my experience here. I mean, I’ve never had a horrible experience because I was gay. I’ve been heckled, although that’s when I first came out, but nothing like they’re describing here. Other than that, I’m dealing with the fact I threw my neck out. It’s so incredibly sore. Katie fell asleep early tonight, so I can’t even make her rub it. After we go to the gym tomorrow, I’m so trying to get her to rub it. Anyways, another style that I’ve never had before.
Style: English Dark Mild Ale
Trivia: According to the brewery website, “Boasting superior taste and champion flavor, the Brawler is crafted in the style of English session ales. This malt-forward, ruby colored ale is great for when you want to go a few rounds.”
Random: The documentary shows a lot of people who cite MTV as helping the “gay revolution” in their country. I’m shocked that MTV had that much influence.
This brew poured with a half a finger of pure white head that dissipated slowly and left some lacing on the glass. The body was a clear chestnut color with moderate carbonation. The nose had a definite nuttiness to it with some sweet malts following it up. The taste was much of the same. It had the nuttiness and sweetness that was apparent in the nose, coupled with some toffee as well. The body was towards the thinner side with active carbonation. The finish was relatively quick with the nuttiness that was maintained throughout. The finish was moderate with the same nuttiness and hint of sweetness. I could see this as a sessionable beer I’d drink in the winter. This was probably one of the best Yards brews that I’ve ever had and one that I would definitely have again. Get your hands on this one!
