Advent Beer Calendar 2006: Day 7: Tannen Bomb

Golden Valley Brewery Tannen BombToday’s pick is Tannen Bomb from Golden Valley Brewery. I confess I picked it as much because I liked the naming pun as for the fact that it’s a well-received beer. Golden Valley’s description says

Tannen Bomb was rated third in the nation by the Beverage Testing Institute two years in a row. This is our strongest Ale with a massive malt complex specially brewed to take the chill off the cold winter months. The bold malt complex is well balanced and refined with generous hopping of Chinook, Liberty, and Fuggles, and dry-hopped with Kent Goldings for an aromatic finish.

That makes an interesting hop profile. The beer is 8% alcohol.

The BeerAdvocates like it: it scores 85 and has a 100% approval rating (only 23 reviews, though).
