Most browns leave me cold, but when they’re not over sweet it’s one of my favrite styles. This is a nice one - lingers a little bit in the aftertaste in a way I’m not crazy about. but a pretty darn good brown and an excellent value.

Bomber from Trader Joe’s pours a clear caramel brown color with small tan head and scant lacing. Aroma is roasted malts with noticeable nuttiness. Taste is on the sweet side with lemony bitterness coming in the middle and through the finish. Body is medium with average carbonation and a slightly sticky mouthfeel. I don’t often seek out brown ales, but this one exceeded my expectations, especially for the price.

Reviewed from notes. The appearance is a dark brown colored body with a tan fluffy head that settles in fairly quickly, leaves a good amount of lacing. The smell had a malty bringing in a very light coffee, and a dark barley. The taste had a roasty kind of coffee with a bit of earthy nuttiness. The palate had a medium, fairly sessionable, nutty aftertaste and sticky finish. Overall, this is good for the style and good for me.

Bomber from Trader Joes. Pours a clear brown color with a large off-white head. A sweet yeasty and nutty nose. The flavor is quite nice; toasted malts, nuts, chocolate, a fruity hop bite in the finish. Very clean. Quite good.

Nice roasted malt aroma with a bit of cocoa as well. Taste is full flavored and balanced. Cocoa and roasted malt comes through. Solid brown ale.

Ibrew2or3 (6835) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - DEC 24, 2013
22oz bomber from Tempe Trader Joe’s pours with a crystal clear amber to ruby red body that supports a tan head of foam. The aroma offers up some roasted malts, a bit of nuttiness and little else that I can tell. The Taste has some bright notes of roasted malts, sweetness and nuttiness but this somehow lacks depth and cohesion. To midway and into the finish a mild lemon to lime hoppy tartness comes to the surface. Decent offering.

peteinSD (1363) - San Diego, California, USA - NOV 19, 2013
Bottle. Dark amber/brown pour with a froth of tan foam. Lightly sweet malt, dry nuts and thin roast, and some minimal hop bitterness on the aroma. Taste is dominated by a mild sweetness before giving way to a thin, dry nutty character and finishing with slight bitterness that mixes with the sweetness. Light, even mouthfeel. Perfectly decent brown albeit definitely on the sweet side of the spectrum . . . and at $2 a bomber a great deal.
