Taste 11/8 Bottle. Looks: Very clear gold with a thin white top. Aroma: Wheat and a little fruit. Taste: Malty grain. A little spice tickles the tongue. Clean and medium bodied. Nice lager/ale blend.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bomber from Canals in Lawrenceville. Pours light amber with a medium white head that hangs around almost long enough for a second sip. Slightly yeasty, citrusy aroma. Flavors of light toast, lemon zest, vanilla and a little piney hops. Thin mouthfeel and a very snappy finish. Overall, a pretty decent pale but nothing special and certainly not one of the better pales on the West Coast block.

Comes from the glass a yellow-orange with not much head. Aroma is of acidic apple and a very floral hops scent. Flavor is a bit corny with some grassy hops and a slight sour flavor. Very boring and nothing outstanding here.

2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
22 oz bottle. Bummer. Not quite a drain pour, but a total disappointment. Aroma is small, bitter. Chunky head fell quickly. Tastes of grass and peanutbutter. Bland and thin. Bummed.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
This is a nice kolsch-type beer. Faintly hazy golden amber, it has a medium off-white head steadily shrinking to a thin ring and wisps. The smell is nice, grain, bread, citrus, grapefruit, hints of honey, pine. In taste, it is light but very tasty, with grain, crackers, citrus, 7-up, hints of grass and pine. It has light sweetness with bitterness in good balance. It’s \quite refreshing and clean.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Pours a thin watered down golden. Barely and head or foam to my pour. Very bitter, very strong hops. Basically gross, not very much fun here.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft at the brewery. Pours a clear dark gold color, with a small off white head. Smells a little grainy with a sublte hop and malt mix. Overall very mild aroma. The flavor is real malty, almost had a caramel or cinnamon character to it. Not much of a hop presence at all. The cereal grain was also noticeable but covered up decently by its sweetness. Not a great drinking beer, but not a drainpour either.
