Had my first Moose Drool this weekend.

Just...wow. That is one great beer. I'm seriously considering making my next batch the CYBI clone.

Moose Drool made my top 10 list the first time I had it. I find it to be best at about 50°, you really get the full flavor.

I did the NB Caribou Slobber, and am not impressed. I've liked almost all of the other kits I've brewed from them, but this one is just not all that. It's been kegged for 3-4 weeks now, after spending 4-5 weeks in primary, and I don't find it to be anything like Moose Drool. Maybe it just needs some more conditioning time.

Moose Drool only just became available at my local liquor store here in Dallas. A good friend of mine introduced me to it a few years back in MN. It's suuuuch a great beer. Easily makes my top 5 for session beers.

It's been around Dallas for at least a couple of years.

As far as American Browns go it is definitely among the few I can stand.

I used to not be a fan of it. I didn't think it was bad, but definitely my least favorite of Big Sky's offerings. However, I recently revisited it and it's gone up greatly in my estimation. I don't know if my tastes have shifted or they tweaked the recipe, but it is definitely a tasty brew.

It seems like the beer guy at the specs in my neighborhood reads these forums, everytime I read a thread about some stupid good beer it shows up there a week later.

Either way I thought moose drool was too sweet, that just may be because my janet's brown ale became ready to drink a week ago and I've had nothing but it since then.

Central market, most liquor stores, etc. I've seen it around several gas stations as well.
