Bottle @ Brunch. Amber pour with a white head. Kind of briney and acidic on the nose. Lots of bread, toffee, and toast. Flavor is a little bit briney, but also acidic. A light piney bitterness, some spicy hops, and a fair amount of toasted bread. Some caramel and toffee, too.

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.
