COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Malty, but not too sweet, with a nice hop flavor. The conditioning time of 8 weeks guarantees the exceptional balance, smoothness and full body, typical of this beer style.

Bomber. Pours clear copper with a thick and lacy pale orange head. Aroma of biscuit, brown sugar and malt; you know the stuff inside malted milk balls? That’s it. Medium body and carbonation. Lightly sweet taste of bread, caramel, filberts. Fairly crisp and just vaguely hoppy finish. I can see why it wouldn’t be too hard to sit around in lederhosen, and watch barmaids showing a ton of cleavage while you pound a bunch of this beer. Damn. I finished the bomber while writing this. I guess I need to learn to type faster.

OldMrCrow (1756) - Seattle, Washington, USA - SEP 13, 2006
UPDATED: SEP 26, 2007 Bomber.

Pours a caramel brown with a nice off-white head. The aroma is lemony, some caramel and just a hint of orange peel and plenty of bready yeast. The flavor is doughy, gently sweet, a bit hollow (again, that funny "forgot-to-put-salt-in-the-pasta-water" taste -- how should I be describing this?), crisply bitter on the finish but with a rather unpleasant vegetal twist.

This is just fine as accompaniment to dinner tonight but I doubt that I would seek it out again.

BeerPrince (1701) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 26, 2007
Bottle. Darker amber nearing brown with minimal head. Malty, slightly sweet with a nice light hopy balance. Aroma was malty and sugary. Decent palate is rich.

glkaiser (1214) - Seattle, Washington, USA - SEP 22, 2008
Biscuit malt mixes nicely with moderate caramel and brown sugar. More than your-average-Oktoberfest’s hop finish, but still on with the style. Very solid and enjoyable.

19Ei8hty (1134) - Washington, USA - OCT 9, 2007
22 oz Bottle - Sweet, caramelly biscuit malt body - slight toffee presence with a floral light hop finish with a muted citrus essence - almost CreamSickle citrusy-smooth. Medium bodied, smooth, enjoyable, extremely well balanced drink. I thought this was a fantastic drink- well done.

Nena (963) - Seattle, Washington, USA - NOV 1, 2009
UPDATED: OCT 7, 2010 Pours a translucent brown amber with a white head. Aroma is bready malt, spicy hops. Richly malty with bread and nutty notes, crisp earthy, herbal hops. Quite nice.

Pint @ 74th St. Ale House. Tastes OK I suppose. Rather thin and not really much to it. Paled in comparison to the Snoqualmie Oktoberfest I had right after this. Golden color with very little aroma. My beer needs more body!
