2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Sample at Montgomery Inn in Dublin. The beer is a mostly clear amber-brown color with a medium light beige head that recedes quickly. Thin rings of lacing on the glass. Mildly sweet toasted malt aroma. Light body with sweet caramel malt flavor and faint hops. The finish is sweet and malty and does not linger long. About what I expected overall.

This beer looks good, but i am sorry it tastes like watered down shit. And I would NEVER choose this over a Sam Adams or anything similiar....just too watery and week. But a nice looking beer anyway.

Bomber, where is good till date? Pours amber with foaming head, that does leave some lacing. Mildly barleywine aroma. Some bitterness, and barley, barleywine-red cross style. Drinkable. About average mouthfeel, creamy by the foam. Above-average carbonation. Not bad for Bud.
