2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
22oz Bottle. The pour was a foggy golden copper with a small (1 finger or less) off white creamy head that receded down to a thin film with a small collar and had good streaky lacing.
The aroma was somewhat mild with a light grain malt, floral hops and an earthy yeast with notes of caramel and citrus (grapefruit).
The taste was also mild with a lightly sweet malty taste and a hint of caramel at first, and then became lightly hoppy with a touch of citrus at the end. The flavor hung on for a good long while, with a slight increase in bitterness and a more pronounced citrus peel presence as time went on.
Mouthfeel was light in body with a dry, watery texture and a medium carbonation.
Overall this was a light and decent tasting Pale Ale, although the increase in the citrus peel bitterness sort of changed the overall flavor of this brew...

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bomber with a killer label! Dark orange amber, translucent to hazy with a thin dissipating head. Aroma of sweet stone fruit and fresh bread leading to a friendly hopiness. It’s a mild start that builds in hop intensity on the palate, then falls away. Good drinking, definitely pine and resin. Better than the IPA!

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught at St. Augustine’s, Vancouver
Hazy amber color with compact head. Caramel aroma, a bit metallic and dusty. Dry mouthfeel; caramel flavor with an ashy and dusty touch; strong bitterness, quite resiny, a bit fruity. Light metallic note in the final.
Good beer, but the ashy touch is not required.

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)

660ml brown bottle. Dark golden pour with light haze and a low sitting slightly frothy whitish cap. The nose has some citrus hops and some sweet malts as well. Taste has caramel malts, some fruitiness, citrus hops. Caramel and toasted malt finish with some nice late bitterness. Overall, a malt heavy APA, very quaffable.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
With an appealing amber color, this brew has a perfect balance of caramel malt and spicy hop flavors. The Munich malt in this recipe lends a rich mouth feel, while generous additions of Pacific-Northwest hops complete the balance. Try a pint of Pale with the Salmon Gyros, Falafel or Alameda Dip.
