2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
How good could a pale ale be with its rich malty sweet but above all, nutty body? Uhhh. It looks good. Taste, not so much. Too nutty and sweet.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: FEB 28, 2013 22 oz bottle. Pours a medium amber with a thin off-white head. Aroma of bread and caramel malts and floral hops. Taste is just like the nose but with a very thin body. Too watery. Very dry. Definitely not in my top favs for Clown Shoes. I would let my people go so they didn’t have to drink this again.

Dark golden/amber, foamy white head. Light aroma of bread, hops, caramel. Taste of creamy caramel, malty milk, light bitter from earthy hops.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a darker golden color. Aroma is of malts, malt vinegar, yeast, cloves, and a little metallic smell. Medium bodied. Flavors that I get in this bad boy are malts, hops, some aluminum, yeast, cloves, coriander, and a little bread. Leaves a bitter malt finish. I’m not too big on this one. It almost seems to me like they tried to make a Belgian style pale ale. Swing and a miss.

January 26, 2013 - bottle from AV3. Light brown pour with big head and a nice amount lasted. Aroma was malt and hops, maybe some caramel or fruit in there as well. Taste was a little bit sweet malty and caramel up front and then went into an earthy and somewhat noticeable citrus bitterness. The aftertaste was kinda funky though, minus that part it was a decent brew.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from total Wine in Tampa. Good amount of head. Smooth mouthfeel, bottled August 2012,
but a little skunky. Likely why there were so many bottles of this and their IPA around the USA.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bomber: Almost mahogany pour with a medium off white head.
aroma is caramel, cardboard, some woody herbal hop. light fruitiness.
Flavour is light fruitiness, medium maltiness, very little of that herbal hop profile comes through in the flavour. Light bitterness towards the finish, overall pretty disappointing.
