Bomber. Poured clear healthy caramel with lots of rising carbonation and a short cap of beige head. The aroma was quite enjoyable with wet grass and bready sweetness accented by ample doses of floral and citrusy hoppage.. very Czech-lagery as one might say. Flavor was even better.. crisp bread and fruity notes at the core with bright citrus and floral bitterness leaving an exclamation on the finish. Crisp and clean on the palate with a smooth flow. Didn’t see this one coming!

Pours a transparent copper orange with a spotty-lacing off-white head. Aroma of lightly toasted and sweet caramel malts with a touch of lager yeast. Body starts fairly full and semi-sweet with a bready maltiness and a drier toasty finish. A pretty good Vienna.

A Mes rate. Tap at the Rake. Clean dark golden with a thin white head. Looks like a pale ale rather than a lager. Lovely pale malt snout. One dimensional but still nice. Fruity flavour with some polite nods in a lagerly direction but this is much more of a pale ale. Good citric hints in the finish. Nice stuff.

"Man, that freaky ass clown label sure gets your attention. A brew I’ve passed on several times but decided to give a few Coneys a whirl. This ones just ok... Light grassy hops and some grainy malt and a bit of sweetness, with a slightly bitter finish. Average brew."

2/5/11. Bomber. Clear red pour with a foamy tan head that cuts in half but lasts. Grainy metallic grainy aroma with a spicy hop bite. Dry grainy flavor with a hint of chocolate, caramel, and malt. A bit papery as well. Meh.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Head is initially average sized, frothy, off-white to light brown, mostly diminishing.
Body is clear medium to dark amber.
Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (cookie, caramel), moderately hoppy (apricot, flowers, orange/grapefruit), with a light note of black tea.
Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter.
Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter.
Medium body, syrupy texture, lively carbonation.
Reasonably nice, if simple, aroma followed by an uncomfortably sweet and syrupy mouth experience. Sweetness lingers long after the swallow, and is only barely managed by bitterness. Ho hum overall.
