3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
15th October 2011
Hazy deep amber beer, decent off white head. Light palate, semi crisp. A little toffee malt. A touch of rye spice. Mild piney hops on top. Minerals impart freshness. Decent if not quite the knockout I was hoping for.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Hazy amber. Light spicy rye on the nose. Big and thick, somewhat syrupy. Again, a bit of rye character comes through. Pretty subtle beer for a strong ale. Interesting anyway.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bomber from Beverages 4 Less in Santee, CA. Pours copper with a creamy tan head. Aromas of rye, yeast/spice, and fruity/floral hop. Full bodied. Flavor is rye, yeast/spice and arguably a bit of citrus. There’s a lot of flavor in this. So much so that it’s hard to be sure of farmyard/barnyard, but I think that’s here too. It has a large fruity sweet taste which is pretty balanced by hop and a touch of citrus? sour. Drinks like a big beer.

Bottle shared by shigadeyo. Poured a clear copper color with an average frothy off-white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate fruity, earthy and yeast aroma. Medium body with a thick smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium sweet yeast flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. My expectation where met.
