2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Amber pour with frothy white head (doesn’t look the role of PALE ale). Nose doesn’t smell like a pale ale either, mostly picking up not-quite-ripe strawberry melon. Flavor is not like a pale ale either, getting melon, semi-sweet malts, and earthiness. Not horrible, but definitely not good.

Pretty good but nondescript. Amber and clear. Solid balance with nice malt backbone. Would try again.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
From bottle, courtesy of FIL. Mild malt sweetness, with some biscuit and caramel. Lots of carbonic gaseousness and frothy bitters, with some neutral fruity hop character. Beautiful deep amber clear with creamy-foamy white lacing head. Medium watery body with medium carbonation. Starts with muted sweetness and some neutral fruity character, a little orange. Some caramel. Mild hop flavor with light carbonic acidity. Bitterness is closer to astringent but not too detracting. Has a homebrew-y taste to it, but I’m not sure why. Finish is smooth with light sweet after.

July 24, 2013; 22 oz. bomber in St. B chalice. Unfiltered (a lot of sediment in this one) pale ale with the character of a fruit beer. A bit thin, but quite drinkable - especially during the summer months.

Bomber pours golden amber with a silky cream colored head. Solid malt base in the nose mixes with mild hop resin. More sweet and malt based than expected. Honey sweetness and creamy mouth feel cover the palate. Easy to drink but seems a tad watery at times. Not a bad beer, just something that is meh and a bit uninteresting.

Bomber from Half Time. Pours hazy amber with a creamy/bubbly beige head. Aromas of resin, citrus and bubble gum/tropical fruit. Med + body. Flavor is mixed resin/citrus/tropical with a little grapefruit rind in the finish. Nothing all that strong, but very pleasing.
