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 release #3. Orange color with some small straw yellow highlights. A small white head was present upon pouring, but it quickly faded after a couple of moments. Lightly fruity aroma with some apple juice, caramel, and a nice dose of honey. Taste is light some fruit, toast, with a slight crisp, semi-dry finish. I’m not picking up on any of the nuttiness that this beer supposedly has. Maybe that’s what is missing to me mid-palate.

ekoerper (588) - Iowa, USA - JUN 13, 2011
Aroma: malty and toasty, touch of caramel, faint hint of chocolate, no hop presence. Pours a somewhat hazy light amber color, thin white head with a couple minutes of retention, leaves decent lacing. Flavor is nice and toasty, biscuit with a hint of chocolate or roast and some caramel. Bitterness is subdued, minimal hop flavors. Medium body, low carbonation, light and smooth on the palate. A very nice, easy drinking beer, and seems to be pretty accurate to style. I think this is spot-on for what the brewers were shooting for.

22oz bomber. Clean and easy. Orange-tan. Oily head. Smooth, clean malt tones, some mellow herbal hop tones. Quite well balanced. Nothing like an English Mild, but a very nice session beer.
