It's brown, it's named after a large North American ungulate, and its name suggests oral incontinence. Ah, we market product with our minds, but we drink beer with our mouths! Which is why this American brown ale is your new favorite session beer. Dense layers of malt, caramel, baking chocolate, and a hint of light-roast coffee give way to reveal a hop character you'll be surprised to find if you're used to drinking English brown ale. The finish is complex but balanced, and the gravity is not so high as to keep you from having another.

Good stuff Review by Arlyn

The only reason I am giving this 4 stars instead of 5 five is due to the kit arriving without the muslin bag. Had to improvise with a nylon strainer, but otherwise this kit pretty much delivered. Nice and smooth, not too bitter, pretty much a great tasting beer. Will definitely go with this one again in the fall when things cool down again. (Posted on 5/12/14)
Very easy and delicious! Review by Steven

This kit is really easy to make and tastes great! After being bottled for just one week, the carbonation is good and has all of the flavors and complexity as described. I'm eager to see how the beer develops in bottle over the coming months...if it lasts that long! (Posted on 5/6/14)
sweet .... first time brew Review by michael

OK ...... I first started off with mr.beer brew kit and had no success . I have friend that has a real brew kit / kettle, fermenter and glass carboy for the secondary and all the other bells and whistles. But as for this kit i got the starter kit for the one gallon batch . And my friend commented on how easy and simple it was for a small kit . which i thought was cool because he does five gallons at a time. so that right there struck a huge conversation on how easy it would be to do mutable small batches like this one and experiment with the batches . next time we are going to ad some boost with a little bit of agave nectar at the end of the boil just to boost up the a.b.v instead of using sugar. But all in all this is a good little kit and just an hour after we pitched the yeast we have bubbles in the air lock . that right there is a good sign. i like the way it smells up the house wile brewing and i also got asked what we were making . I had to laugh and say BEER !!!! not dinner . :_) thanks again and ill be back for more .... maybe the pumpkin ale is next . there is just so many to try . (Posted on 4/2/14)

Pretty good. Light drinking for a darker beer. A bit chocolatey, not overly hoppy and very easy to brew. I recommend. (Posted on 3/15/14)
high FG, but still delicious Review by Aaron
Rating
Have brewed this kit twice and have been happy with it both times. However, my FG the first time was 1.025 and the second time it was 1.02. Ive heard thats normal for darker extract kits so dont be surprised if yours doesn't finish very low. And dont worry, it will still be delicious.I plan to continue to brew this kit regularly. Like the product description says, it will quickly become your favorite session beer. (Posted on 3/5/14)
great drink Review by Daniel Buyak

My first sip of caribou slobber I was not impressed. BUT it was premature and not carbonated beyond a slight bubble, and also warm(I couldn't wait). After it was carbonated and then chilled the beer was very good. Very complex flavor. Don't know how to describe it other than it left you thirsty for more! (Posted on 2/27/14)

Second brew for this beginner brewer, 1st NB brew, and my wife and I love it! Plan on making another 1 gallon batch and brewing this for my first 5 gallon, once I buy all the equipment to do so. Thank you NB!! (Posted on 2/23/14)
Really Good! Review by Mike

This was my first experience in making beer and I thought the instructions were very easy to follow and the beer was really good! My friends thought it was good, too. I will be ordering more! (Posted on 2/9/14)
Great, super easy brew Review by Snackins

This kit was awesome all around. This was my first NB kit and it was definitely all I thought it would be. The beer was well carbonated when I poured it and the taste was well-balanced for a session beer. The process was amazing and I will definitely brew other NB kits in the near future! I took 7 weeks total for this beer. Primary for 3 weeks, 2 secondary, and 2 in the bottle. Turned out great. Next time, I'll take a little less time and see what happens. (Posted on 2/4/14)
