"this was a good brown ale with a slighly higher abv than normal and a nice malty backbone and a slightly hoppy finish. very well done for a style that’s hard to stand out in."

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bomber @ 8th Shrewsbury Bottle Share. Pours very dark brown. Sweet dark fruits, smooth sweet malts, some nuttiness, but exceptionally drinkable. A great interpretation of a Brown Ale.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bomber between four at the September 2014 Shrewsbury bottle share. Chestnut brown body with a white crown, semi-sweet malt molasses in both the nose and taste. Mild wood and nutty feel to the medium depthed body, those malts completely ruling the flavours and not allowing the hops to assert themselves. I quite liked it though.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a murky dull-copper color with a sizable, sudsy, khaki head. Roasted malt and toffee aromas. Both of which are mild. Medium-bodied with some mild burning, scrub. Toffee, a little fruit, and roasted malt. The roasted flavor takes on a bit of that home-brew-syrup malt off flavor.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Mike, thanks a ton for this. You da man!
Two bottles, one poured into a pint glass and the other was poured into a mug.
The appearance was a hazy brown color with a one finger white foamy head in both glasses. The head lasted a bit longer in the mug than the pint and once the head died the lacing was the same in both, kinda messy and all over the place.
The aroma offered a strong caramel to molasses sweet nuttiness. There was a light toffee lightly pervading.
The taste followed the aroma in pretty much the same way.
On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a pretty good sessionability about it. This one just rolled right on over my tongue in such a graceful way - wow!
Overall, this is quite an impressive Brown ale that I know I would have again. This was very worth seeking out.
