Slipstream (2480) - USA - FEB 24, 2013
UPDATED: OCT 9, 2014 Thanks to Glyn, who picked this up in his travels. The bottle I had was labeled Boatswain Heavy Lifter - some MIlwaukee brewery I haven’t heard of before. I also had this under the name Trader Joe’s/Rhinelander Boatswain Ale The aroma starts off yeasty, but gets better. Big, foamy head on a dark pour. The flavor is chocolate malt and pumpernickel, with a dash of yeast, and there are hops in the finish. It was worth the budget price at Trader Joe’s.

dmschefke (576) - Macomb, Michigan, USA - FEB 19, 2013
Pours an amber orange with thick off-white head, decent lacing. Aroma of herbal and citrus hops, strong toasted malt backbone, slight nutty character, caramel, and very slight bread. Flavor matches well and you can definitely count me in the pleasantly surprised category. For less than $2, this would be hard to beat.

IrishBoy (4112) - Bakersfield, California, USA - FEB 17, 2013
Bomber from Trader Joe’s Bakersfield labeled Boatswain Heavy Lift Vessel Ale. Nose is pecans, caramel, biscuit, and sweetness. Clear brown with a big, lightly lacing beige head. Flavor is lightly sweet, nutty, and a hint of bitter, smoke, and licorice. Pretty decent brown ale especially considering the buck ninety nine pricepoint!
