Bomber from Hi-Time. Pours deep ruddy copper with a slight head. Mild malt aroma. Med body. Flavor is sort of like a dilute brown ale. It even seems to be a little nutty. But there’s not a lot going on here.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz bottle pours with a clear deep copper body that has gold edges and supports a dirty white head of foam. The modest aroma offers up a bit of roasted malts, a slight spice note and sweet lagery fruity esters. The taste has a pleasing mix of roasted malts, lagery fruity esters and some vague modest bitter hoppiness. To midway and into the finish the lager yeast notes ride you into the after taste on a thin bed of fruity esters. Tasty Lager.
