On tap at Capone’s. Poured a medium to deeper amber color with a smaller sized off white head. Aromas of fruit rinds, earthy, spices, yeastiness, and some breadiness. Tastes of fruitiness, some funkiness, yeast, earthy, and caramel. Some funk present that was enjoyable. Lacing left on the glass.

Thanks again to puzzl for sharing. Deep amber pour with thick white head. The nose is slightly tart with a bit of pineapple character. There is a slightly wet rancidity in here that I can’t say I’m a huge fan of. It’s quite odd actually.

Bomber, obtained at the brewpub in November. Great big foamy head, on a cloudy grapefruit coloured body. The aroma is a tad funky, it draws you in. Well malted, there is some acidity. Nicely drinkable, and would have ’er again.

Bottle thanks to ericandersnavy. Pours with a large bone colored head over a muddy amber body. Aroma is butter, cinnamon, pastries, alcohol and apple pie. Really nice. Taste is a bit sour with some green apple, and caramel. Doesn’t live up to the aroma. Fizzy.

Bottle at Paul’s place for Kan’s visit. Pours a murky light brown with a medium sized white head. Light sweet caramel, grain, slight musk, and a bit of old apples. Medium bodied, light acid note. Finishes with a touch of a slow bitterness.

Draft at Capones. Pours an amber body with an off white head. Citric, candy, fruit punch and something that reminds me of a juice box. Apricot dry with a light spice note. Great beer.

( 750ml bottle thanks to bu11zeye) Pours very murky rusty orange with huge fluffy lasting head. Nose is funky and fruity. Taste is apricot, alcohol, creamy with a great sweet linger. I also find that it has a good crisp hop kick at the end.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
750 shared by vferg. Pours a hazed honey amber- a bit muddy with a huge carbonation and a dirty yeasty big head. Aroma has a sharp sweet-tartness to it, with weird fruity esters esp as it warms- almost a grape and strawberry ester presence- with a muddled yeasty and dry crackery malts. Flavor is yeasty, phenolic, fruity, dough, dirty muddy yeast, toffee, light sweetness with a hint of tartness in the finish. A bit messy and really looks kinda bad next to the Haverhill BdG. This is a definite miss for Bullfrog.
