Decent session pale ale. Definitely made in more of an English tradition, this is very malt forward, with the hops folowing ever so slightly in the background with some toffee flavors and a buttery herbal hop note in the finish. Exciting enough on the palate to not be boring, but not assertive enough to completely be a palate killer. Extremely drinkable.

Piney, citrus hops with a grassiness to it on the nose. Slightly hazy, dark golden color, bordering on copper. A nice shot of grass that finishes dry. Malt is hidden, playing a supporting role in the middle palate. A nice balance of body and carbonation. Good pale - enough flavor for the afficionados but still sessionable.

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.
