Hazy straw colour. Tart, grainy nose with apple skins. Sour, herbal, and lightly spicy. Whatever this is doing, I think the footy, slightly autolyzed electrical cord note doesn’t work for me.

Bomber from Vintage Cellar. Pours hazy amber gold with a creamy/foamy off-white head. Aroma is citric, almost like bergamot. Near med body. Firm carbonation. Flavor is bitter citrus, hint of perfume, and it seems a bit wheaty rather than caramel. For a golden ale it’s got a lot going for it: ABV, bitter, nice tang in the finish. Very good.

The good news is that there's good head retention, the bad news is that, when the pour is 95% foam to 5% body, it makes for a slow pour. Off-white head atop a hazy yellow body. Aroma is medium sweet, citrus hoppy, some floral and spicy. Taste is medium sweet, spicy, light citrus hop. Finish is spicy citrus bitter. Medium body, quite tart and nice crispness.
