Flavor is heavy malt (cereal, grain, meal), light hops (earthy), and light esters (fruity) with notes of nutty brown rice. Light body, low warmth, medium carbonation, and a dry finish. The clean nuttiness of the brown rice gives it a near lager-like flavor.

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.

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

DrSilverworm (8711) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 6, 2013
22oz bottle, thanks to DanielCoor for sharing! Release #9, 5.6% ABV. Totally hazy orange amber color. Minimal white head, dots of lace. Smooth, lightly soft lighter carbonation. Lightly dry finish. Good toasty, grainy malt bill. Light citrusy hop to it. Moderate bitter taste, light sweet. Solid, easy-drinking smooth brown rice ale.. Never had a rice ale that was specifically brown rice, pretty cool

sebletitje (7928) - Enghien, BELGIUM - JAN 8, 2011
Bouteille partagée avec Ibrew2or3. Couleur dorée paille, mousse blanche. Qcq notes de riz, malt et houblon avec un léger aspect de fleur. Le riz se mélange bien avec le houblon pour un palais un peu citronné laissant une fine pellicule d’amertume au fini. L’usage de riz est perceptible et donne une bonne dimension à la bière qui surpasse de loin les autres grosses brasseries qui utilisent du riz pour un résultat plus que médiocre.

phaleslu (7670) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 8, 2013
22 oz. bottle shared by DanielCoor- thanks, Danny! Release #9. Pours a hazy gold with a small white head. Aroma of pale malts, brown rice graininess, straw, dried fruits. The flavor is a slightly better version of the same, where the brown rice and even a bit of hops are more distinguishable. Light-bodied, with a smooth mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. Not much to it, but not bad.

Ibrew2or3 (7515) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - JAN 21, 2011
Bomber courtesy of douglas88. Pours orange/copper with off white head. The aroma is spicy with yeast and then moving toward an apricot to apple like fruitiness. The taste begins spicy then it picks up grains, apple, pear and apricot. Interesting stuff and easy drinkn’s too.

Ughsmash (7387) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 10, 2012
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.
