3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
poured a slightly cloudy golden hue with a thin white head which had some lacing. Aroma was a mix of grainy whole wheat bread-like malts with a subtle honey note. Flavor was sweet with honey, a nice grain character smooth out the sweetness. Some floral hops in the finish.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
22 oz bomber. Pale amber beer with a creamy white head. Fairly yeasty/hazy appearance. Pale malt aroma with some fresh bready character. Lightly honeyed. Well-balanced flavour although a bit less in the way of sweetness than I’d normally expect. Soft earthy hops over pale hay-like malts. Decent beer, but not a great one.

On tap at Willimantic Brewing. Clear amber orange with almost no head. Sweet malt and caramel nose, some honeylike notes. Body is a bit thick, a touch sticky. Very sweet malt and honey flavors, light herbal hop is an afterthought. A bit overdone.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
22oz bomber: This one pours a cloudy, dark golden color with an orangish hue. There was some off-white head that died off quickly. It leaves almost no lacing on the glass. The aroma is a bit thin, with notes of banana and a bit of caramel. The taste is a mildly caramel sweet brew. The body is medium, and the taste is smooth. There about zero hops in this. Nothing special, but still a very drinkable beer.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Decent. It does have a sweetness to it... but not a very pleasant one. Almost a tartness about it, and a little bit of an apple taste. Body was not very impressive, too thin and fizzy. This was better than the BBC pale ale I tried, but still not very impressive.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
[bomber] Orange color, almost no head at all. Flavors are pretty plain- banana aroma, sweet malts and strong lager yeast. No hops to speak of. Not too good.
