Quick Review. Big Sky Brewing Co. Moose Drool Brown Ale.

February 15, 2010

Moose Drool was the “Beer of the Month” at my favorite Peoria, IL pub, Kellehers.  Each month you get a craft beer+glass for $5.  February 2010 featured Big Sky Brewing’s Moose Drool Brown Ale.  Being a big fan of Brown Ales be on the lookout for a much more detailed review of this one coming later.

QUICK REVIEW

Moose Drool pours dark brown mixed with amber.  It’s a clear beer with a small, off-white head.

The aroma is mostly malt, but with a touch of hops.  The malt is smokey, roasty, and slightly nutty.

The flavor is malty and sweet.  It has a light hoppy finish.  It’s a mostly malt, nutty, sweetness here.

The finish is slightly bitter, drying with a nutty feeling in the mouth.  It’s light in the mouth and highly drinkable.

This is a solid representation of the style  Moose Drool could use a bit more flavor, but overall it’s rather good.

Overall: 3.5/5

***NOTE: Quick reviews are taken from notes that I take in situations that do not allow for the detailed inspection of a beer usually found here at Beer Epiphany. Most often this will include drinking at a pub or bar with friends where it would be impolite to focus all my attention on my beer.  Other quick reviews could be conducted from  beer flights or while attending beer fests (small servings).

Rest assured I plan to sit down with each and every one of these beers at a later time for a more in-depth review.  Also, just because my notes are less in-depth doesn’t make them any less accurate–just more brief.

Therefore, no CBE% or score breakdown will be presented for beers conducted in “quick review” form.  These will be reserved for more detailed reviews.
