4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
(Stockholm Beer Festival 2005) Nice shiny dark amber with a small brownish head. A bit maltyand fruity at first then it turns clearly hoppy. Very hoppy dry flavor, some pine and grapefruit. Even more hops and bitterness in the long finish. Lovely, but not a beer you drink alot of in one evening...

3rd LCRBM. Earthy, oily, citric hops in the aroma. Oily, very hoppy flavor. Red berries and lemon. Long raw hopbitter aftertaste. Doesn’t leave room for much other flavor, still a likeable beer.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Gravity pour at Churchkey. Labeled as dry-hopped/Simcoe.
Clear copper, three-bubble head, no carbonation. Aroma of smoke, oak, bourbon, flowers. Taste has caramel, a smoky edge and a bitter finish. Great character. Easily the best beer of the night.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled, many thanks Ian for sharing this. Chestnut with dying head. Unbalanced, bitter beer, pushes a dry hard unsophisticated hop to the fore with no refinement. Sharp, almost medicinal with a bite of alcohol and a touch of bath cleaner. Not a pleasant beer to drink or relax with. Poor side of middlling.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
a hazy reddish ale with a thick light moka head. A pleasant vinous aroma, with carmale notes, and funky floral hops, and light coffee notes. In mouth, a sweet caramel malt, torrefied coffee, nuts and floral hops, citrusy. A good classy ale. Bought at Bessette’s, Canton, NY. Tasted Feb. 2007 and many times before.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bomber poured a clear dark copper with a small amber head. Aromas of lime, a bit of carmel, and pine. Palate was medium bodied and resiny. Flavors of citrus, and carmel with a dry, bitter, astringent finish. I hear it gets better with age,I’ll have to stash a bottle away for a couple years and see if it improves.
