Bottled at Petalax Beer Festival. Clear mahogany colour, small head. Vanilla, caramel and orange up front. Sweet with medium body and clean, rounded mouthfeel. Simplistic flavour of caramel, vanilla and blood orange. Low bitterness. Infantile.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bomber. Curious Hop, Otley. Clear, dark copper colour. Thin, dense, lasting, beige head. Fruity, malt loaf aroma, specifically Soreen! Some gingery spice. Orange rind. A bit fudgy. Taste is soft sweet. Light bitter. Light dry. Nice balance. Smooth, airy mouthfeel. Finishes chewy sweet. Orange zest bitter right on the close. An oddity, but easy enough drinking.

Growler share at Evernote. Roasted malts, medicinal, tinny (probably some oxidation). Ultimately too sweet for me.
