Bullfrog Brewery Milky Joe
I picked up a growler of Bullfrog Milky Joe to bring home with me after visiting the brewery. The beer pours a dark brown color with a frothy white head. The aroma consists of toasted malts and cream. The taste is smooth and milky with some toasted malts that shine through in the finish and really dry the tongue. The after taste has some mocha hints and is quite smooth. The alcohol content is 4.5% ABV. I thought this was an excellent smooth brown ale and the addition of lactose made for a sweeter drinking beer that camouflaged the bitter toasted malts fairly well.
