3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Faint caramel aroma. Crimson red with massive foam. Taste is not very complex though it is interesting. Odd hop flavoring with a slight metallic background. Also odd caramel/syrup-like malts. Overall, itís not very good quality. Something very funky about this one.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bomber from the Vacaville BevMo. 6.5% ABV. Pours dark ruddy copper with a creamy beige head that was a little fizzy. Aroma is dark roast malt with some resin. Flavor seems pretty much the same. Might be a hint of chocolate in the aftertaste, but this is fairly hoppy stuff. Better than the average amber.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Clear amber/dark red with a strong two-finger head that left a thick film and spotty lace. Moderate caramel malt aromas with floral hops. Flavors follow, and include toast and notes of nuts. Medium body, rich carbonation, sticky mouthfeel and a sweet bread finish.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bomber from BevMo. Description is the same but stats have changed: OG 14į Plato, 40 IBUís, 6.5% ABV. Poured into an English pint glass. Color is a deep amber with a tan head. Aroma is sweet caramel malt, some cereal notes, and mild hops. Flavor is very mild with light maltiness up front followed by mild resinous hop flavors. Palate is light/medium bodied with a slightly astringent finish. Overall a decent brew thatís fairly well balanced but I prefer by ambers/reds to be more malty and sweet than this.

At Oregon Brewers Festival. Herbacious flavor and caramel with slight citrus. Weird. Tastes dirty and earthy for some reason. Yuck. Pouring the rest in the drain.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle:   Dirty caramel, deep reddish hue, large frothy sand colored head, clumpy lacing, vibrant carbonation.   Subtle earthy/soily malt nose, slightly sweet/sugary in a cane sugar sorta way.   Picking up some
Honeycomb like cereal, along with apple skin.   Very soft earthen malts on the tongue, mild sweetness, but does have a touch of astringency.   Finishes with that Honeycomb cereal like sweetness.   For an Amber its rather soft
both in the malt and hop department.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate at best.   A little cerealy after the finish.   Tiz okay, slightly rough, and not malty nor hopped up enough.   Honeycomb cereal flavor detracts as

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Absolutely undrinkable. Horribly astringent, possible hint of a decent base destroyed by stewed vegetables and solvent. Drain pour.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. An amber/brownish color. Not much in the way of taste. Fairly generic hoppiness with a citrus aftertaste. A faint taste of an earthy, almost dirt flavor, and not in a good way. Not recommended.
