3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, 22oz. An amber colored beer, lightly unclear, and topped by a big, dense, light beige colored head. Rather lemony aroma with some bready hints, spiced and cellarish. Too much carbonation, it’s medium to full-bodied and semi-dry. Caramel hints, some spiced, bready notes and lemon. Lasting finish. Rather weird this one, but sort of nice anyway. 141228

Murky hazy dark amberish copper with a thick foamy off cream head. Nice doughy and earthy rye malt nose with a citrusy leafy hop tone. Lovely flavor of a clean rye doughy malt with some balanced bitter leafy hop tones and a kiss of citrus rind. Nuanced and full and tasty. And there’s a touch of black roast malt on the finish.

A great rye. Pours a nice cloudy amber with a white head. Smells very earthy with some boiled malts. Taste starts sweet, with more earthiness and baked bread, and a heavy finish. Had on tap at the brewery.

Bomber from the Utah State store on Harris in Salt Lake City. Pours very hazy orange amber. Slight white head. Aroma of rye spice and fruit. Med body or better. Flavor is rye spice and fruit - arguably citrus. It’s malty. But it’s not sweet malty. So back to rye and rye spice. It’s not super strongly flavored, but it’s very flavorful. If you like rye, you should like this. Makes me long for pastrami on rye.
