Drake (8980) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - AUG 9, 2010
Bomber from Trader Joes Glen Allen, VA. Pours a clear red tinted brown color with a medium tan head. Fair head retention and lacing. Aroma of bitter hops with a tinny quality and some brown malts. The taste is nutty with faint chocolate notes and bitter hops. Thin, watery and really not very good.

kitschy (326) - Nebraska, USA - AUG 3, 2010
in bottle from Trader Joes in Foggy Bottom. Looks a lot like RC Cola. Aroma is slightly roasted. Flavor is roasted malt, more hops than expected. Adequate but not exceptional.

kmweaver (3207) - Petaluma, California, USA - JUL 25, 2010
22oz bottle, purchased at Trader Joes Santa Rosa. Pours a dark but clear, reddish-cola color; mixed-bubbled light-tan head with light retention and patchy lacing. Once this warms a touch, theres plenty of nuttiness and a light chocolate character in the nose; not especially dense or interesting (maybe a mild minerally hop character), but flawless and, well, very nutty. Medium body; relaxed carbonation; lightly creamy core; following the aroma, the nutty character seems the most prominent note here, alongside a basic cola maltiness and a very light chocolate character; again, pretty basic, modestly drinkable, lackluster brown. Minimal hop character and a nearly one-dimensional maltiness. Medium finish of caramel, oily nuttiness, and a light mineral hop note.

UPDATED: JAN 22, 2013 Value Priced $2.50 22oz bomb from TJs - Well...it is fresh and looks like a nice amber ale. Watery palate. Taste of nuts and caramel malts. Hops are subdued. Clean yeast profile--perhaps some dough. Overall: Expectations met. Hey, its a value bomb from TJs and taste like it. Completely suitable for this hot-as-hell summer.re-rateYou know, this is an excellent value! Mostly nutty and buttery flavors dominate. Still watery as hell, but Firestone managed to put together a respectable brew for next to nothing.

tgncc (2877) - Bellmore, New York, USA - JUL 18, 2010
22 oz. bomber from Trader Joes for $2.69! The aroma is coffee, nutty, chocolate. The appearance is a nice deep reddish brown, thin and translucent, with a light tan head. The flavor is malty, nutty, coffee, chocolate. The finish is light roastiness, and a light hop bittering, mainly earthy. Thin to medium in body. Not bad at all, especially for this price.

radagast83 (5026) - Fairfax, Virginia, USA - JUL 18, 2010
22 oz bottle. Pours a clear, brown color with a medium sized tan head. Aroma is sweet malts, touch of toffee. Flavor is malty, smooth, touch of toffee, minimum of dried fruits. Worth picking up while at Trader Joes, but not something Id go out of my way to purchase.

bhensonb (11488) - Woodland, California, USA - JUL 15, 2010
Bomber from Trader Joes in Sacramento, CA. Pours clear dark ruby amber with a 4 finger foamy beige head. Aromas of mildly harshly roasted malt and mildly milky chocolate. Pretty strong aroma for having mild components. Good aroma. Medium minus body with mild and foamy carbonation. Flavor is nutty! I can taste nut skin. Chocolate mildly shows up after awhile. Browns are not my fave, but this is a pretty good one. Consider the price and its amazing. No suggestions for improvement. Drinks well.

JoeinDahlem (1333) - Berlin, Berlin, GERMANY - JUL 13, 2010
Sweet, caramel-malty, red-fruity, root-beery nose over a beer that ranges from near-black in the shadows to orange-red in the highlights. Rummy and plummy taste, moderately sweet but lightly bitter for balance, finishing a bit thin and dry. A bit sweet but still pretty easy-drinking.
