3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cask - The Murderers, Norwich. Surprised to see this here, so I jumped straight on it. It poured a dark, ruddy chestnut with a lasting, creamy white head. Dry, citric, earthy hops with a good caramel base on the nose. Some sweet dark fruit notes up front with a good, late and lingering dry hop bite. Medium body, light to medium carbonation. Pretty sessionable and flavoursome.

Amber indeed, with a tan creamy head. Fruity and somewhat earthy nose. Caramel and fruity towards a nice balanced dry finish. Quencher.

Bomber. Poured a clear amber with a small lingering light amber head. Aromas of carmel, earthiness and light fruit. Palate was light to medium bodied and crisp with a dry finish. Tastes like it smells.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Appearance: Pours a hazy amber with very little head and some lacing
Aroma: Sweet hops and grapefruit
Taste: Silky mouthfeel, sweet malts. I get some smokey flavor in the finish
Not bad, it is watery with very little going on.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours a light orange, grapefruit juice color with a whispy, clear head. Head recedes with a miniscule ring and light lacing. Nose is heavy doughy malts up front with a light fruit note of apricot and sweetness. Palate is flat and medium with asticky, lightly bitter finish. Flavors if doughy, biscuity malts; light fruit notes with some grapes and tangerines showing through. Only gets better as it warms and more of the flavor and scent becomes prevalent. Quite complex and interesting despite it’s plain appearance.

Bomber (2009) into a goblet. Surprisingly hoppy with a caramel backing, but it tastes a bit like cleaner sadly.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Deep amber colour, no head & very low level of carbonation. Rich malt aroma with hints of chocolate and dried fruits, nice aroma, malt dominate as it should be in this style of beer. Palate is medium to full with a creaminess and good balance. Quite rich malt flavours with a slight fruity hop character. Overall a nice beer, relatively easy drinking but more than one or two would be to much I think.

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Rats. A disappointment. Poured with soap bubble head and no lace. Color is a clear light to medium amber. Aroma is a malty and flowery hop. Pleasant. Flavor is a nicely mildly hopped amber beer as I’d expect. It was flat though. Going to try cooking with it. Hard to get around the flatness and be neutral with the other qualities as they’re so connected. Still, an accurate review as best I can. Chau babe.

In the bottle from HyVee Council Bluffs. On sale for an incredible $4.99. Pours amber with a slight haze and very little white head. The aroma is quite like tea, orange pekoe in fact. A nice mild citrus orange hop with a sweet then bitter finish blast. the bitterness remains long on the tongue. This was from Batch 002.
