3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bomber from Made in Oregon. Pours hazy luminous amber with a creamy beige head. Aroma is malt and floral. Very foamy carb supporting full body. Flavor is very floral with some strong citrus - lots of fruit bitter - nice malt backbone. I can imagine dry smashed oats in my mouth. But I’m fairly suggestable. This is a very nice pale ale - finishing so smoothly bitter it’s a pleasure to drink.

Draft at the source. The oatmeal adds somethibg interesting in the aroma, as well as oat taste and extra body. Interesting idea.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
22. Bottom line, this is a solid little APA that doesn’t really gain anything in particular from the oatmeal. It doesn’t have any obvious flaws, but there’s nothing about it that stands up and demands notice, either. Pours a clear medium amber with a dense and creamy tan head that fades quickly away to almost nothing. Rich toasty nose, almost cooked. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Toast, nuts, and dark biscuit on the mid palate. Mild biscuity finish. Not too bad.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle: Extremely strong carbonation, causing for a huge frothy sandy head... way too overcarbonated. Amber in color, slightly dirty. Soft hoppiness, a little citrus peel, decent maltiness. Seems like a Pale Ale with a little extra malt kick, which is nice. However, this carbonation is killing me. *BURP* Moderate body and mouthfeel. Doesn’t taste infected, but does have a pixie stix like sugary sweetness to it. I thought this bottle was going to blow when the cap was released. Good, but too airy...

Bomber. Pours a mostly clear dark copper color with a medium white head. A light grainy and earthy nose. Smooth, some earthy caramel, toasted malts, light fruity hops. A nice smooth palate, creamy. Good beer.

Aroma is sweetish with resin, some vanilla and hints of honey. Flavour is sweetish with some resin and hops. Quite malty palate. Becomes a bit sticky towards the end of the glass. Good.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
650ml bottle pours a golden orange color with a generous white head with some good retention that leaves some nice lacing on the glass. Aroma is mild but pleasant with grass and grains and a hint of citrus. Taste is better with a generous grass and citrus hop bitterness and a caramel malty sweetness. Light to medium bodied with good carbonation. A nicely done pale ale that is easy to drink and recommended as a session ale.
