COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bobís your uncle is an easy drinking session beer that is light in body and mouth feel. There is a light caramel maltiness and very soft hop bitterness. The hop flavor is pronounced, more so than a standard premium bitters, but the aroma is spot on and distinctly British. (ABV 4.80%)

Available in growlers at our Baroda & Union Pier Tasting Rooms

BBB63 (6373) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - OCT 9, 2011
Tap and Growler: Clean glowing light amber hue with a fading frothy head and spotty lace upon the pint glass. The aroma has notes of grassy and herbal hops, some apple and pear esters, biscuit, crystal and slight butterscotch vapours, hint of mineral water too. The taste displays a light to moderate bitterness over a layer of base and sweet malts with a hint of earthiness and slight fruitiness. Pretty one dimensional and straight forward but clean enough to be quaffable. A nice enough bitter that would be best served on a handpull.

Pailhead (5398) - Plymouth, Michigan, USA - APR 14, 2013
Bottle: The aroma consists of light caramel and some faint toasty herbal notes. It pours a mostly transparent amber with a touch of haze. It has a two finger off-white head that quickly settles in to a soapy film outlined by a slightly thicker ring. There is some sporadic webbing left on the sides of the glass. The flavor starts with a quick dose of caramel with just a hint of fruit. The finish has some light toasty herbal notes and a touch of nuttiness.

nuplastikk (4918) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 10, 2014
12oz bottle. Seems like somewhere under the MASSIVE infection, there is a pretty mundane English ale. As it is, it smells like brett..in a bad way. It exploded when opened. If you sell a horrible product like this, you should be ashamed. I will never buy another Round Barn beer. Shabby US microbrew at its worst.

12 oz. bottle. Pours a reddish amber color with a medium off white head. Aroma of caramel malts and medium herbal hops, touches of iced tea and toffee. Flavor of toasted malts, caramel, toffee, subtle hop bitterness. Bits of herbal notes. Medium bodied. Fairly solid though unspectacular.

This is a strange beer. I think something may be awry but it is kind of good regardless. It pours a hazed orange color w/ a big, long-lasting white head of foam. It smells strongly of apples and is a bit earthy and grassy as well. I am fairly sure this bottle is either infected w/ some very fruity yeast or these guys really, really need to put some money into temperature control for their fermenters. (There is a ring around the neck of the bottle which points strongly to infection.) This is pretty much in Belgian territory as far as fruity yeast character once you taste it--though it veers more towards apple and cherry as opposed to banana and spice. It is a bit sweet, medium bodied and very definitely overcarbonated. It finishes w/ lingering fruit on the tongue. Really, I have no idea what this is supposed to taste like. It tastes like an apple bomb but there is something about this that strikes me as entirely unintentional. Still, it does not taste foul at all so I have to give it some credit.

superspak (3167) - Michigan, USA - OCT 6, 2014
12 ounce bottle into pint glass, no bottle dating. Very high carbonation upon opening. Pours lightly hazy/cloudy deep orange/copper color with a 2 finger fairly dense and fluffy light khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Dense foamy lacing clings around the glass, with a large amount of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Aromas of caramel, toast, brown bread, pear, apple, herbal, grass, and herbal/yeast earthiness. Okay aromas with solid balance and complexity of dark/bready malt, earthy hop, and fruity yeast ester notes; with decent strength. A bit too fruity, but has some solid malt presence. Taste of caramel, toast, toffee, brown bread, light nuttiness, herbal, grass, light pear/apple, and herbal/yeast earthiness. Fair amount of earthy herbal bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of caramel, toast, toffee, brown bread, light nuttiness, herbal, grass, light pear/apple, and herbal/yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Nice balance and robustness of dark/bready malt, earthy hop, and yeast ester flavors; with a good malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. I swirled out most of the overcarbonation; which lead to a medium carbonation and body; with a smooth, crisp, and lightly creamy/bready mouthfeel that is good. Alcohol is well hidden with zero warming present after the finish as expected of 4.8%. Overall this is a very solid English bitter style. All around good balance and robustness of dark/bready malt, earthy hops, and yeast ester flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. Other than the over-carbonation and overly fruity aromas; this turned out to be quite enjoyable.
