(Bouteille à Bottlecraft): Un mélange de pétales de rose, de cassonade et de mélasse docile. Une présence modérée de l’aspect épicé ouvre la porte vers une dimension supplémentaire. Superbe.

Bomber pours clear copper with a well formed one finger white head. Aroma is caramel, nutty, biscuit, and honey. The flavor is nicely balanced, moderate honey and caramel sweetness, mild hop bitterness. Medium bodied, very crisp and drinkable. Excellent offering for the style. The heat is on.

Picked a Bonner up while visiting The Hop Grenade in Concord, CA. I’ve had a couple others from HA and damn do they make some fine beers. Dark amber pour with a slight white head. Malty caramel nose. Perfect balance of roasted caramel, just a touch of bitterness and a dry finish with a full mouthfeel. Really good.

Orange with a white head. Toasted malt, earthy hops, medium clean and bitter finish. Slight dry end. No caramel sweetness, which is nice. Very enjoyable. Would drink this all year. (2016 version at Horse Brass Pub)

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle, from notes. Pours crystal clear burnished copper; white head, small bubbles. Aroma of marzen: caramel, toast, biscuit, some fruit and toffee. Taste: clean, crisp. Despite malt-driven marzen flavors, not particularly sweet. Quite dry, with a short lightly bitter finish. Medium body, light texture, good carbonation. Overall: great!

Bomber shared by Marcus. Pours orange gold with a large beige head. Aroma of malt, yeast and arguably noble hops. Med body or nearly. Flavor is lifgt roast malt and definitely noble hop. finishes a bit off dry, but it’s clean, and all the flavors stand out nicely.
