WTF Ale. A malty, robust, jobless Recovery Ale! We’re not quite in the Red, or in the Black... Does that mean we’re in the Brown?

A big Ol’ Imperial Brown Ale to help you with your slipperly slide on into springtime. Rich, smooth, dangerous & chocolatey.

Met a friend for lunch down at First Street Draught House, and saw this one on-tap. Full nonic-pint. A thick finger-width beige head on top. Excellent rings of lace left behind after each sip. The nose is hoppy and full of citrus goodness - orange slices, grapefruit, pomegranate. A little dry scent in there like sawdust. Clean body, though erring on the thinner side. Finish is a little more slick than I’d like on a Strong Ale. Grapefruit smacks me right away. Semi-sweet candied malts, honey, syrup, lime. Alcohol is barely detectable as far as flavor, but I can feel it after awhile. This was a good beer, and a treat to sip on while watching the first few games of the tourney and waiting for my food to arrive. Another win for Lagunitas.

$4.00 Bomber from Costco. Dark amber with a lasting beige head. Roasted malt and some sweetness in the aroma. Upfront malt on the first sip with a fair amount of hop bitterness to balance the sweet malt with a roasted barley taste. Medium to full body with a good amount of carbonation in this one. Sweet finish that is filling.

Pours a hazy dark reddish brown with a lasting beige head that leaves good lacing. Aroma is full of toffee malts with some pine resin and earthy herbs. Taste is sweet to begin with before a bitter finish kicks in. The aftertaste is almost smoky, making you wonder what hit you: rye? resin? the bandoneon player from a tango band? Body is medium to full with noticeable carbonation and a sticky mouthfeel. I’m a big fan of Lagunitas’ nice-priced bombers, and this is one I’ll seek again.

Pours dark copper with lasting off white lacing. Ample carbonation and a malty initial taste is followed with dry finish. Very nice.

$5.79 bomber from Wine Warehouse. Pours deep red with an inch of beige head. Lovely aroma of grapefruit peel, pine, sweet unburnt caramels. Flavor is roasted nuts, pine, grapefruit, light sweet caramels. Tasty without being too sweet.

On tap at Brunzies. Nutty roasted malt, light caramel, and a good burst of floral hops. Coppery brown clear with light haze, topped with foamy lacing off-white head. Medium body with medium-heavy carbonation. Starts with moderate roast and caramel, big bitter hops and carbonic tang. Dry nutty fizzy finish with moderate bitter after.
