3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
650ml bomber pours a pale amber color with a finger and a half of white head that leaves some spotted lacing on the glass. Aroma is citrus and caramel with some spicy notes. Taste is a citrus hop bitterness with a caramel malty sweetness. Medium bodied with good carbonation that satisfies the palate. More like an IPA than a winter warmer. Still an enjoyable brew.

Pours out a dark golden amber with a thin off white head. The aroma is well hopped with resin and light grapefruit notes. Light toffee and caramelized notes with toasted malt notes. A bit sweet with mild hops and tons of citrus. WEll balanced but a bit boring.

"Another solid burnside brew. Malty and hoppy in equal measure. Big, chewy and smooth. Strong, candied grapefruit, orange peel & caramel malts. Wish I could have had a bigger sample of this..."

Bomber from Malt &n Vine. Pours dark orange/copper with a beige head. Aroma of toasty malts. Med + body. Flavor is pretty dark malt, with chocolate notes, and a good deal of fruit. Definitely moves to toffee/molasses. Nice hop content, tho hop is second place. Good brew. It doesn’t finish dry.

On tap at the brewpub. Pour is clear orange with a small white head and good lacing. Grapefruit, orange peel, sweet caramel, sticky malt, brown sugar, and bready aroma. Taste is sweet orange marmalade, caramel, doughy, lemony, and white sugar with light alcohol on the backend. Slick mouthfeel with medium carbonation. This shit will get you buzzed quick.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught at the brewery restaurant during Zwickelmania 2014. Good strong caramel nose, with honey and some dark fruit. Very pretty sparkling garnet red color, good lace. Very sweet initial: raisins and some sour fruit in the background / pleasant sweetness in mid, generous carbonation, and some substantial bittering / mild sweet finish. Medium-heavy body. One of the more interesting brews I’ve had from Burnside. Served a bit too cold.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Bailey’s Taproom while the ladies shopped across the street at Billygoat Vintage - pretty good deal as far as I was concerned. Hazy copper with a tan head. A fair amount of caramel and semi-roasted malts, some orange and what I can best describe as semi caramelized/burnt grapefruit rind. Moderate body and carbonation, smooth and easy to drink but most going on upfront then later on - still good though.
