Bomber from Capital market,Salem.
Copper coloured, clear with a large creme coloured head.
Light, subdued aromas of malts and some hops.
Very malt driven Pale ale, toffeeish,creamy and almost English, the NW hopping does make an appearance near the end.
Pretty nice on the palate, quite full.
A nice middle of the road Pale Ale more English than American style IMO.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Amber pour with a small head and sparse lacing. Nice balance of citrus and floral hops in the aroma along with some maltiness. Very well balanced flavors. The malt and hops blend together very well leaving you with just a touch of alcohol. Nice body. Hoppy palate with a bitter finish. Very good pale ale.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
22oz. bottle from John’s Market. Pours a moderately opaque, deep amber color. Big assed off-white head issues forth and slowly recedes, fantastic lacing. Wonderful "C" hop aroma, lightly floral, moderately citric. Body is just a bit disappointing. Not terrifically light but seemingly missing something, hard to describe but there. Flavor is nicely balanced with some caramel sweetness and a moderate hop bitterness and flavor. Decently done, scoring higher if it didn’t have that void.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bomber. Mostly clear orange, firm off-white frothy lasting creamy head leaves a lot of messy soapy lacing. Sweet caramel malt aroma. More than a lightly bitter herbal earthy hop bite, mildly sweet caramel malts behind, some citrus. Average carbonation, medium bodied, medium hopped. Floral bitter finish. LBW (Lagerboys Be Wary)

2.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Smells like acetone and feet. Some hops snuck in the back too. Taste is far better, bringing the pale ale hoppiness pretty nicely actually. Good body; clean finish.
