Loose single from Binnyís. Finally my first Bridgeport beer, although there are some bombers somewhere in my cellar. I get a big nose of malts and alcohol at the pour, not as much hop. Carola brown pour under a spongy beer head, not much bubble activity in my glass. More hops found in the taste, a kind of slight citrus and slightly "dry" hop note. Or maybe just a standard hop bitterness. Either way, it matches nicely with a slightly spicy malt bill. Texture seems a little light, but itís leaving sticky traces on my lip, and the alcohol comes in to warm me up on this cold night.

Enjoyable double red from Bridgeport. Pours a cloudy amber with a thin, tan head. Aroma is surprisingly faint, mostly of hops, a tad sweet. Big flavor, with hops and light caramel. Smooth on the palate with light carbonation on the tongue. Overall a good double red from Bridgeport. Not overpowering with good hops flavor

Tastes like a fuller bodied and heavier hopped version of the local pale ale by Boulevard. I enjoyed it a lot.

Caramel, resin, peach aromas. khaki head on clear amber. good blance of weight and fizz in the moth, aromatic. Hops win the the tussle just barely, with some pine, okay tang, a slightly overcooked caramel. balanced bitter finish.

Nice beer! Has a woody barleywine aroma to start. Really awesome color. Super clean and crystal clear with a beautiful frothy head. Itís like barleywine light. Bitter caramel and toasty. It has a unique enticing bitter flavor. You know how some beers make you think about pussy? This beer has that quality. Sex in a glass. Itís that aroma.

3.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a hazy reddish amber with a short lived head. Aroma is dominated by hops with a little soapiness. Flavor is an excellent balance of floral hops and roasted malts. Very easy to drink. Would make a superb session beer...but watch out for the ABV! This would be great with spicy Indian or South American foods to mellow out the heat. Cheers!
