Style: American Amber / Red Ale

Notes / Commercial Description:
Sometimes things go together so well, one wonders what life was like before it - like peanut butter and jelly, hippies and patchouli. With that in mind, we at the 3HB lab have created the Bromigo, bringing together smoked malts and maple syrup, amber ale and spicy hops, bold flavor and a sweet finish. It just goes together like Bro and Amigo. Enjoy friend!

Smooth, crisp, deep amber in color, pours with little head and a nice lace that sticks to glass as you drink it. Spicy hops, great flavor. Tastes smoky with a hint of maple syrup that provides a sweet finish. A perfect beer for the fall and would be an excellent breakfast beer if you're into that kind of thing. Another excellent beer from our friends at 3HB.

Had in a pint glass at Buddha beer bar- pouts a clear dark amber color with 1.5 fingers of bone white head, decent retention and some nice splotchy lacing.

Smell is interesting- definitely get the maple and smoked elements; reminds me of bacon. Nice.

Taste is more complex- some smoked malt up front followed by hop bitterness and citrusy notes, then more smoke and finally the maple at the finish. Finishes a little sweet but also with a lingering bitterness.

Mouthfeel is crisp- medium body, moderate to full carbonation. This is a good one. This brewing company.

Extremely cloudy hazy amber in color. Not much of a head on it but if it only had that then I'd say it was absolutely perfect. I love the color.
Smells like brown sugar and pecan pie. If thanksgiving breakfast had a smell it would be this.
Tastes sugary and nutty. Sweet but not artificial. Very easy to drink. Malty at first but the aftertaste lets some hops through.
Mouthfeel is perfect for the taste. Very low carbination, refreshing.
Overall this beer is way better than I thought itd be and Im glad I tried it!

Pours a burnt orange/reddish brown with thick creamy head. Smell is lightly citrus with a hint of smoke. Flavor is very complex. Strong malty backbone with some bacony notes coming in, all under a veil of maple sweetness, and black pepper finish. Very enjoyable. Another hit from the guys at 3 Heads.

Three Heads Bromigo is a crystal clear, copper ale with a thin, dense, sand colored head that leaves a solid film on the glass. Smoke is pretty prominent in the aroma, but I'm not picking up any maple in there. There seem to be notes of citrus and pineapple, though. It smells like food... Maybe a shish kebab from the grill. It seems pretty full bodied, smooth and soft. The finish is very quick and it leaves behind a little chalkiness. It tastes smoky from start to finish. It's not really sweet or dry. The maple surfaces near the finish, more resiny than sweet. It tastes a little roasty and chocolatey. There's a little bitterness at the finish and then a kind of dark chocolate aftertaste. This is good stuff. It's solid and unique and not overstated at all. It's pretty easy drinking and could work as a session ale.
