3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bomber from Wine & Cheese in Clayton, MO. Pours dark ruddy amber with a foamy tan head. Aroma is lightly spicey. Med body/sharp, frothy carb. Flavor is roast caramel, but this is not sweet, and the malt is strongly offset by spice. If that’s from the hop mix, it’s a very good job.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle thanks to bu11zeye. Pours with a small, off-white head and an amber hued body underneath. Aroma is sugary with hints of fruit, toffee, and corn. Very estery. Taste has a lot of fruity esters and is a bit nutty with some caramel and cherry (reminds me of NB Old Cherry). Light bubbles and a dry mouthfeel.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bomber. Poured a clear, translucent burnt sienna with a light dusting of white head sticking around. The aroma picked up sweet toasted caramel.. came across a touch candied with just a hint of cocoa.. some floral and perfumey hop accents. Flavor had more toasted and candied caramels with darker fruits.. accented by dry floral and fruity bitterness, especially at the finish. Light-medium bodied with OK balance to it.. left sweet fruit, bitter herbs, and sharp diacetyl at the finish. Solid session brew.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at The Stable in St. Louis. Pours a clear dark amber-copper color with a medium foamy beige head that recedes slowly. Spotty lacing on the glass that slides down quickly. Caramel malt aroma with some hops and dark fruit. Medium-bodied and sweet with flavors of grainy malt and caramel, along with hints of vinous fruits and hops. The finish is sweet and malty with a mildly tart fruit aftertaste. Slightly above average overall.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pretty standard American Amber. Big and sticky, with rich caramel and toffee character. It’s kinda nice since everyone wants to do some "IPA" thing, this is a nice change. (#5216, 8/27/213)

Draft at Enigma in St. Louis. Pours a cloudy amber color with a small off-white head. Notes of caramel malts, earthy hops, nuts, overripe fruit, grass, and mild spices. Light-medium bodied, with mild carbonation and a light malt mouthfeel. Decent, sessionable amber ale.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bomber. Medium copper colored body with a light khaki head. The aroma has some grainy notes like Wheaties cereal. There is also some dusty old oranges. The taste has some light tobacco and dusty caramel. There is also some apple core. This is definitely on the malty end for an amber ale, I would say that it is closer to an ESB than an amber. Decent.
