COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A perfect beverage to relax with after a long day on the slopes, this extremely pleasant to drink ale has very minimal hop addition. The delicate Mt. Hood hops give it a smooth body with a bit of nuttiness and a slightly sweet malt at the end. This sessionable ale has some wonderful vanilla and honey notes that are well balanced throughout the drink.

Bomber from Douglass88. Cloudy amber with a slightly off white head. Semi sweet and roasted malt, bit bready, some caramel. Mild body and moderate carbonation, somewhat sweet, quite malty, more caramel, strange adjunct malt on the finish. Not my favourite.

Aroma is a lemon citrus malty with some small amounts of floral hops. Pours a golden orange with lots ofcarbanations thick frothy head leaves some lacing little oily. Taste is very malty yeasty little citrus floral leaves the mouth very sticky. Overall nota bad beer.

A darker coppery orange color beer under a fairly fluffy head. The beer smells/tastes a little more (almost) skunky than I expected it to. Not like the beer was actually skunked, just a little bitter. It also was at the same time fruitier than I expected. I got a touch of nuttiness, but not as much of the English maltyness that their description lead me to expect.

Ughsmash (7124) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 19, 2012
Bomber, release #16. Poured clear, medium golden with a sticky white head. The aroma picked up soft, toasted honey, grains, and bready malt, with lemon zest and a touch of saltiness around.. very pleasant. The flavor found honeycomb and light, toasty grainy malts at the core.. a touch of citrus and a wash of honey around the edges and through the refreshing, slightly tangy finish. Light-bodied with a smooth, creamy flow through the palate.. left some honey and floral essence on the finish.. tasty stuff.

A - Pours a cloudy amber-orange with a finger of frothy white head. The head fades down at a normal pace leaving behind some light lacing. S - Aroma is a mix of sweet biscuity malts with some fruity English yeast esters, with some nuttiness. T - Starts off with some sweet biscuit or cracker malts with some fruity English yeast esters. Through the middle, some nuttiness and bready malts come through with a bit of bitterness and some more fruitiness. The finish is a mix of sweet bready malts with fruity English yeast flavors and nuttiness. M - Medium-minus bodied with mild carbonation. Feels smooth with a sweet and fruity finish. D - Very drinkable. Nice example of an English mild. Good overall balance and malt profile.

BelgianBeerGal (3138) - Panama City, Florida, USA - AUG 23, 2012
Bottle fresh from the brewery. Release #21, 5.1% ABV. I am no mild expert but this was pretty tasty. I almost wrote that the beer was fairly "mild" but I suppose that’s the point. Mild without being boring. nice sessionable ale.

bomber to glass; rec’d in trade from gription79 Nothing bad to say - straightforward beer - aroma of malt, straw, and slight vanilla. Taste is maltiness but not overly sweet; nicely carbonated - goes down easy

DavoleBomb (1467) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 31, 2012
Poured into a pint glass. Release #17, 4.6% ABV. 2.5 A: Moderately hazed medium orange color. Three fingers of frothy off-white head. Retention is about average and no lacing is left. 3.5 S: Lightly bready yeast and malts with a pleasant nuttiness. That’s about all. 3.5 T: Same as the nose. Lightly bready and nutty. Yeasty to round things out. 3.5 M: Medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Lightly creamy and smooth. 3.5 D: Tasty beer. Not a lot of complexity, but good enough. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 07-10-2012 23:25:10

iguanodon (78) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - JUL 22, 2012
Bomber from the brewery store. Pours hazy medium brown with a coarse off white head that disappears quickly. Aroma is a a little smoke, peat. Taste is malty, a bit of straw. Not a favorite but then I’m not a big fan of the style.
