Outstanding
Notes: Round like a record and smooth as a hip hop song, our apple pie-inspired brown ale flaunts a bodacious body and stunning combination of aromatic cinnamon, fragrant vanilla, and real apples. Bonita Applebum, you gotta pour me some!

This beer and vanilla ice cream would be the perfect dessert. The beer is murky brown in color. This beer smells awesome with apples, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Its taste about the same as it smells with some added caramel. Its smells like a super sweet beer, but its really very drinkable. Now where is my ice cream!!!

Went to Funky buddha brewery for the Bonita applebum growler fill but while i was waiting to get it, i decided to aslo get it on draft as well.

Damn good beer. Its not overbearingly sweat like i thouht it might be. Instead it was perfect.

was like drinking and apple pie. Spices were on point, vanilla was there along with a nice caramel taste. Lastly is the apple which was thankyfully was not artificial like some apple ales.

Very smooth drink and is perfect for a nice fall sunday watching football
