I must tip my hat to Jason for this beer, as it is a gift from his friends’ ample Great Northern road trip this summer. Brau Brothers is from Lucan, Minnesota a town with a population of roughly 220 people. Let’s hope that small town charm and hospitality made its way into this bottle.
During the initial pour this is a pretty standard pale ale, hence the lackluster and unoriginal name I guess. It is a light orange/ rusty color with almost no head. The carbonation was active but had oddly small bubbles and a plethora of sediment floating around in the glass. Check out the Brau self write up, “This is an excellent session beer that requires little attention.”
I could not possibly agree more. This beer is like pale ale 101. You know that class you only took to meet stupid and easy Freshmen Chicks. Brau Brothers Pale Ale is one of the most “cookie-cutter,” by the books brews on this planet. Some pale malt, a splash of cirusy hops and voila, you have a beer that tastes like any hack could home brew. But The Brau Brothers said it best themselves, this beer requires little attention.
Consumed: Pint Glass
Verdict: Bum one from a friend
