The Bridge Burner pours a deep, fiery amber with a rocky off-white head. The assertive aroma is dominated by dry, earthy American hops: citrus, floral and pine tree notes all make a showing. The hops dominate, lending a hefty bitterness to the palate, but are backed up by the caramel malts, which lend a substantial body without any extra sweetness. A warm alcohol burn finishes it off with a nod to its considerable ABV. Since the opening of Northern Brewer Milwaukee in 2009, Lakefront Brewery has been a collaborator on a number of projects. This beer kit is the result of a close working relationship with Lakefront’s expert brewers.
