kmweaver (3207) - Petaluma, California, USA - JUL 25, 2010
22oz bottle, purchased at Trader Joe’s 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, there’s 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 TJ’s - 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, it’s a value bomb from TJ’s 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.

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.

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 Joe’s, but not something I’d go out of my way to purchase.

bhensonb (12971) - 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 it’s amazing. No suggestions for improvement. Drinks well.

JoeinDahlem (1396) - 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.

22oz bottle pours a translucent, deep mahogany brown with a bright white head. Nose is brown sugar, malty, nuts, sweet. Flavor is sweet, malty, light toast, light chocolate. Finish is thin, lightly sweet. For $2.50 it’s not bad.

EricE (1367) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUL 10, 2010
Watery clear brown pour with a light tan head. Not much going on in the aroma. Some toasted malt, nuts, and toffee. Caramel malt flavor with some apple notes. Very light and watery. Nothing special or exciting, but I can’t say there’s anything unpleasant about it.

smooch (238) - Sylvania, Ohio, USA - JUL 10, 2010
A nice flat brown colored pour. Not much of a nose, but a really nice light chocolatey flavor. More toasty malt than most browns I’ve had. Yummy.
