3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bomber from Capone’s. Pours hazy brown with tan head. Nose was earthy vienna malt, big hops, nuts. Tasted like a hoppy nut brown ale with huge complexity and solid balance, and I even got some figgy notes late. Left me wanting more.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Pours a deep ruby color with a thin tan head. Piney aroma. Sharp bitterness from both hops and roasted malt. Piney hop flavor is a bit overpowering and way too much bitterness for the style in my opinion. Mouthfeel is a bit thin as well, just an average beer and pretty disappointing for the 7 bucks I shelled out for a bomber.

On tap at MacGregor’s. Dark brown color with a frothy and medium creamy beige head with a decent duration. Aroma is toasty, light sweet and caramel. Flavor has toffee notes with caramel and toasted. Moderate final with a slight bitterness. Enjoyable

I’m not a brown fan but really enjoyed this one. On tap at MacGregor’s. Beautiful looking, reddish brown, pretty filtered looking. Rich malty nose. Palate is malty but balanced. No off tastes, which in my mind many brown’s have. Well done.
