Bottle. Probably not super fresh considering where I grabbed it from. I had it on tap this spring and remember liking it more. Pours a clear straw with some head. Aroma gives you grains with faint hop presence, taste is moderately bitter, finish is dry. Pretty good but again, remember liking it more on tap... I think the hops have faded a bit.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bomber from Capitol Beer in Sacramento, CA. Pours light gold with a slight white head. Smells sort of bready and mildly white berry. Med body or nearly. Flavor is rather spicy, and floral/white berry. Followed by some bread. It is crisp and clean. But it’s a bit like someone poured a little Fume Blanc into the beer. If this was a blind taste, I’d probably think it was a pretty good pale lager.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap @ Coachella Valley Brewing. Clear golden pour with a tall white head. Nose is nice and bready, though a touch grainy. Some floral hops, straw, and a touch of cracker. Slight grassy hop note to the flavor. More bitter than I’d prefer, but good bread and grain sweetness. A hint of apple, some cracker, and maybe a bit of popcorn. Light floral hops. Probably my favorite of their beers during my visit.

This was a great beer to sip on in the 110 degree heat of Palm Desert. Will definitely have some with me by the pool on my next trip to the desert.

22 oz. bottle. It pours a yellow color with a small white head. The aroma is white crackers and lightly floral, noble hops. Very clean and balanced. The flavor is a bit more citrusy with more florals and light bready/cracker malts. It has a clean and dry floral finish. A very pleasant and somewhat traditional Kolsch.
