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.

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.

355ml bottle. Just a mundane and old tasting amber ale, not thriling whatsoever.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle, from Lukas Liquor in Missouri, purchased during my stay for RBSG. Mostly clear dark amber red color. Thin khaki head. Leaves loose bits of lace. Light to medium body. Smooth, kind of crisp, creamy, lighter carbonation. Light slick texture. Good tropical fruity hop, and toasty malt. Good chocolate notes. Light caramel. Moderate bitter, light to moderate sweet. Good fruity bitter hop balance on this amber ale. I dig it. Great to enjoy with my sandwich.

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.
