Bomber, Release #7. Poured cloudy medium orange with a nice cap of beige head. The aroma picked up sweet rice, dark bread, and a touch of molasses with earth and lesser fruity accents.. fresh and interesting, but not super enticing. The flavor found similar malts at the core, with slightly tangy herbal and earthy notes laced throughout.. finished a little metallic. Light-medium bodied with moderate carbonation on the palate.. buttery on the middle, but not as pleasant around.. OK overall.

riversideAK (5625) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - AUG 17, 2012
Nose of grainy rice notes, a little sweetness, a touch of earthy notes as well. Smells to me like that japanese brown rice green tea. Fucking good, i like that shit. Pours amber, thin fizzy head. Flavors of that good ass japanese brown rice tea, light sweetness, a little toasty and earthy, grain, rice is there. Crisp finish, dry, quenching. Really good specialty grain beer. I enjoyed it.

651mL. Clear golden pour with smaller white head. Small chunkies in the glass. Fruity, sweet nose with sweet cherry juice and children's juice box with plastic. Taste is neutral, watery, sharp grainy. Pretty bland overall. Not sure what makes this better than just typical pale lager. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

CaptainCougar (7129) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - MAR 11, 2012
22oz bottle: Pours a clear deep golden brass with a spotty-lacing white head. Has a mild grainy and semi-sweet nose. Starts with average fullness and effervescent carbonation with an earthy grainy maltiness and some grassy hop bitterness before a smooth bittersweet finish. Fairly drinkable, but nothing too exciting.

Bomber from Beer Run in Charlottesville, VA, opened 4/26/11. Pours a clear amber color with a medium sized creamy white head. Decent head retention and lacing. Aroma of rice, floral hops and faint nutty notes. The taste is very much similar with a bit of apple and caramel as well. Medium bodied. Decent beer.
