Think: fresh baked rye bread in a bottle with a hint of lemon and spice from the hops and yeast.

Bomber release number one. Pours a very cloudy bronze color with a medium white head. A sweet rye and grainy nose, the yeasts definitively add some hefe-like banana and fruit here. A nice earthy flavor; spicy rye, bready for sure, lemon and perhaps some ginger. Pretty nice and very drinkable.

Aroma is mostly bready and spicy rye notes, very pleasant. Pours a very murky amber, white head which dissipates to a ring. Spicy rye, lemon, faint hops, bready malts, and yeast make up most of the flavor. Medium-full body and medium carbonation.

22 oz. bottle. Aroma features chocolate chip cookie and Tootsie Roll scents from the malts. Lemon rind. Fresh and yeasty smell. I’m not getting much in the way of spices that I expect from a rye beer. Pours a hazy, effervescent, medium brown with a moderate to large amount of long-lasting beige head. Produces good lacing, and has a good look to it overall. Milk chocolate and cookie flavors. It tastes like a straight-forward, but high quality, brown ale, except with a welcome dry hops – and perhaps rye spice – kick in the finish. Dry aftertaste. Light to medium body. Lively, frothy, and silky in what amounts to a nice, though not special, palate. You know, it’s a pretty enjoyable brew, thought it’s not exactly my kind of beer stylistically, and it clashed with my expectations in appearance, aroma, and flavor. The point is, it wasn’t what I was expecting, but, hey, I liked it.

Bomber bought @ Bierkompass.de. Pours hazy dark brown with a frothy beige head that leaves some thick lacing on the glass while dissipating. Smell is sweet and fruity with dark bread, pears in sugar syrup, gummi candy, green apple skin, cinnamon, lemon zest and rye flour. Taste is sweet, fruity and spicy with rye flour, black pepper, canned pears and apples, dark bread, liquorice, spearmint, lemon zest, almonds, dried fruit sponge cake and hints of dried apricots and canned mandarin oranges. Mouthfeel is round, creamy and medium bodied. Finish is tiny sweet and slightly malty with dark rye bread, spearmint, orange and lemon zest, canned pears, lemon grass, black pepper and liquorice root. Weird but decent.

Draft. Pours a hazy amber color with a medium sized off white head. The aroma has caramel malt, mild spicy rye, crackers with light earthy notes. The flavor has much of the same; caramel malts, mild rye notes, toasted crackers, and hints of earthy hops. OK, but...

Wittales (761) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - MAR 12, 2013
Apearance was cloudy caramel brown with lasting creamy off white 2 finger head, rings of lacing. Aromas are funky rye, chocolate, Munich and pale malts, hints of citrus fruits with dankiness. Taste was soft caramel, chocolate, toffee, wheat malt backbone. Hops are slight lemon, orange, dirty laundry and soft rye backing. Palate was smooth soft CO2 wih medium body, then lasting soft Rye and citrus fruit finish. A good soft rye brew.
