    Moose Drool

    .a brown ale by Big Sky. I had wondered whether it might conform to the general rule, the uglier the label or its name, the greater probability that I'll like it. I did indeed like Moose although I found it considerably less assertive than the typical ale, revisiting a q which has long escaped definitive answer. How often can a brew which most of us consider bland, instead be labeled "subtle"

    Thanks from our Greater Southwest Beer-Tasting Society for your attention to this trenchant conundrum

    I like it so much that I brewed a clone of it. Seems to me the trend is to make crazy hybrids and such. I find well crafted beers without a lot to hide behind like Moose Drool to be exceptional.

    I remember it being very well balanced, and easy drinking. Carmel and toffee with some subtle chocolate flavor. (my recipe had a small amount of chocolate specialty grains in it). Gonna have to visit this one again real soon!
