2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottled. Amber colour, big off-white head. Aroma is earthy, some floral notes, mild toffee and some grassy notes. Flavour is grassy, floral and some earthy notes. Surprisingly dry flavour for an amber ale. Still pretty much has got "old beer" feeling over it. (Bottled 04/10/14).

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.
