Bomber shared with Degarth courtesy of Degarth. Thanks again. The pour comes out deep copper with thin off white head. The aroma is mild with faint grainy to pale maltiness followed by some spice hops. The taste is full and refreshing with a solid pulse of pale malts to grainy malts to mild caramel and biscuit malts. Hops are noticed too with floral flowery notes and spice. Nice session beer with solid flavors.

DYCSoccer17 (3226) - Woodland, California, USA - MAY 17, 2008
22 ounce bottle purchased at BevMo in Vacaville. Aroma has some nice strawberry like fruitiness with some sugary and metallic malts. This also has a significant floral quality to it. I dont know, this just smells really fine. Transparent ruddy-golden body with a weak off-tan head with minimal lacing. Starts a bit spicy and peppery with some hop flavors before this becomes a bit corny and metallic in the middle. FInishes crisp and grassy. Light bitterness. Quenching.

SamGamgee (2452) - down the whirlpool, California, USA - JUN 21, 2008
Draught at The Red in Santa Cruz. Clear amber with a compact, creamy off-white head that leaves moderate lace. Mostly hoppy aroma: floral, spicy, earthy, and a hint of citrus. The flavor is a great balance of toffeeish malts and assertive, complex hop flavors. The hops are a good blend of more citric american flavors, and more earthy and spicy european character. At first, it seems like a hoppy APA, but the light, crisp body and cleaner flavors let you know that you are drinking a lager. I love hoppy lagers, and this one is definitely well done. Just light enough to politely pair with the portabella sandwich that I had, but with enough hop flavor to cut through the richness of the brie cheese on it.

Pours amber into a stein. Off-white head quickly subsides to hug rim. Crisp with caramel from front to back. Dark caramel hop finish.

LilBeerDoctor (3370) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 13, 2008
Bottle. Pours a deep orange/brown with a thick, foamy light tan head. Aroma of nice flowery hops with toasted and caramel malt. Awesome! Flavor is quite good as well, nice light floral hops and sweet malt. Slight toasted malt presence, particularly in the finish. Superbly drinkable. Similar to SA Boston Lager but more full-bodied and not as sweet. A top-notch vienna and one of the best lagers I’ve had. Definitely superior to its 3.35 average.

ajm (1063) - Los Angeles, California, USA - NOV 20, 2008
On tap in Portland (Burnside and 12th NE - don’t know the name of the place). A fine beer if you are tired, pissed and thirsty because Higgins closed earlier than they said they would. Like a nice mellow pale with a bit of extra sweetness.

Tap at the rake and bottle from utobeer at home with ang. The tap is infinitly superiour. Alround rating: Caramlt balanced with citrusy fresh american hop, id have thought it an american pale ale by style. Alround excellent very drinkable stuff.

From an old rating note - bomber. Nice lager. Light caramel aroma. Smooth. Well-balanced. Slight nuttiness with some dark fruits. All Iíve got other than a score.
