2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bomber. Pours hazy gold, very thin white head. Kind of surprising that the head is so tiny, since it appears to be a very yeasty beer (by the sediments at the bottle of the bottle & the aroma). Aroma is yeasty, skunky (hops), and fruity. This beer is terribly non-carbonated, to a point of being offensive. Pretty weak yeasty/malty flavor. Not a drain pour, but I wouldn’t seek this out again. I can’t remember how much I paid for this bottle, but whatever the price, it was too much.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JAN 2, 2012 I shake my head and wonder If I am getting myself into something bad. much like any movie that utilizes the title as a tag line in a film, the use of "Wicked Good" portents disaster and strangeness. Nose of hops yeast and a bit of funk. I will not call it quenching. I will not call it zesty. I will call it an end of run bottle that should not have been shipped. Solid murky pour with some serious chunks floating about. Potentially a bad bottle but the fella said they just got it on the shelves. Hmmmm. Re-rate 1/1/11. Draft growler from half time provided by the host of the New years extravaganza. Confirmed, the Bomber was well past the prime since it was a summer seasonal. Lemonhead gumdrop body. In other words, tangy but sweet about the edges. Light bodied with a thin crisp yeasty head. Sharp decided finish. A great one to start the night with. Up from a 2.8. (5,2,6,3,12).

Bottle. Hazy golden body with a short white head. Aroma is lemon, grains, light spice (almost a hint of cinnamon), and yeast notes. Taste is sweet malts, soft lemon, grains, dusty yeast, and mild spices. Body is light and very bubbly with a strong, prickly carbonation. Ends with more spices, light yeast notes, sweet malt, hints of lemon and wheat.

Thanks to Maltajo for the bottle. Hazy dark yellow pour with thin white head. Dry lemony tart aroma. Taste is crisp malt, tart lemon and a touch of wheat. I didn’t think I would like this, but it was a refreshing brew and did it’s job.

Bottle shared by argo0 on 8/24/08: Pours a hazy pale golden with a thin ring of wispy white head. Aroma of lightly sweet biscuity pale malt and a touch of coriander and lime. Body starts with decent fullness and doughy maltiness with some citrusy flavor before a drier biscuity finish. Smooth beer with an interesting lime character.
