Brewed by:
Spiteful Brewing
Illinois, United States

Style: American Brown Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 7.50%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
Need some fermented anger management? Burning Bridges, a happy American Brown Ale, hits your taste buds with generous portions of Horizon, Falconer's Flight 7C's, and Cascade hops. Amber and chocolate malt provide the moral fortitude to balance these angry hops. However, when you inevitably do burn bridges, at least you still have this beer to help ease the consequences.

Served in a mug

A - This is about as dark as a brown ale can be. When held to the light I get faint amber highlights. There is about half a mug of tan head.

S - The smell is grain, molasses, and chocolate. There are a few wafts of citrus.

T - The taste has some remnants of a once hoppy beer. I taste some orange and a little citrus. The main flavors are from the malt. I get wonderful roasted grain and chocolate malt.

M - Medium to full

O - This is a flavorful brown ale. Unfortunately, I held on to it past its prime as far as the hops go, but the malt bill is delicious. I am really enjoying this beer. This is my first Spiteful beer, and I will definitely seek out more of their offerings.
