Lagerboy (1232) - British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 14, 2013
Bomber. Mostly clear medium copper, big rocky creamy off-white head slowly settles and lasts. Roasty, herbal hop aroma. Herbal hop forward taste, some citrus, bittersweet roasted malt hidden behind, some caramel hints emerge as it warms. Unbalanced. Average carbonation, medium bodied, moderately hopped. Finishes dry and bitter. NFL (Not For Lagerboys)

5000 (6300) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - AUG 11, 2013
Bottle:   Darker side of Amber, moderate frothy tannish head, nice lacing.   Soft bready aroma, a little grainy, slight pine like hops.   Malty up front, a little bready, citrus peel, pith, minor sweetness.   Seems well balanced.   Could stand to be a touch sweeter.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Less malty on the finish, more like a Pale Ale in its pith and peel bitterness.   Not bad, if it were a bit more maltier and sweeter it would be spot on!

bhensonb (11074) - Woodland, California, USA - MAY 12, 2013
Bomber from Made in Oregon. Pours dark ruddy amber with a foamy beige head. Aroma is resin over roast malt. Med body or better. Flavor is lightly nutty roast malt, but there’s a lot of hop - mostly resin? - or is it spicy/herby?- anyway it drinks a s--- load better than the vast majority of ambers. Thankfully this amber is far from a drain pour. It’s even pleasant to the nose when the glass is raised each quaff. Good beer. Finishes with lots of hop bitter.

brokensail (10935) - Orange County, California, USA - MAY 11, 2013
Bottle gushes upon opening it. Amber pour with a tall off-white head. Nose of floral hops, pine, citrus, and bread. Some green apple, toast, toffee, and water. Flavor is somewhat sweet and malty with floral and pine hops. Kind of watery. Some toast, toffee, bread, and green apple.

650 ml bottle. Pours a dark mahogany with red hints and medium head. Aromas of pine, lemons, and toasted malts. Flavors of spruce, citrus and berries, light malts, and bit of sugar. Bitter finish. Somewhat light in body but quite nice summer.

Ratman197 (9808) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - MAR 27, 2013
Bomber poured a clear redish amber with a lasting creamy amber head. Aromas of carmel, earthiness, grassiness, pine and a hint of citrus. Palate was medium bodied and smooth with a dry finish. Flavors of carmel, earthiness, pine and grapefruit with asmoth dry bitter lingering malty finish. One of the best Reds I’ve had!

Reid (1900) - Salem, Oregon, USA - JAN 13, 2013
22oz bottle from"Lifesource" in Salem. $4.59 Pours a dark,ruddy red colour with a large and thick light tan head. In the aroma its nugget hops to the front,herbal alightly grassy with a good caramel malt aroma to the end. Taste is a fair balance of the caramel hop and the hops with the malts just winning out. OK mouth feel. Nice drinkable amber. Good beer.
