3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Amber clear with a big foamy off white head. Oak, vanilla aroma. Caramel, vanilla, slight spicy hop. Really excellent beer but tough to get a high rating, just well executed. My biggest issue with this beer is that the name reminds me of the database admins at work.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured from bottle to glass. Hazy copper hue with fizzy white head that dissipated to a ring. Aroma is oak, caramel, toffee, honey. Mouthfeel is nice with a medium ring and soft carbonation. Taste is sweet with a drying tannic finish. Overall this is a nice brew.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bomber shared with a bunch of random colleagues of my wife. I’ve had this before, but never rated it, so tonight’s the night because tickers gotta tick. Lovely clear chestnut pour. Toast, bread, malt-driven but with a nice, lightly bitter hop presence in the finish. Medium- body, average carbonation, creamy texture. Overall: just an easy-drinking forgettable beer. Not a knock against it at all, just not the kind of beer to write a lot about, more the kind of beer to drink at a party and forget completely about.

Pours clear amber with a lasting off white head. Caramel, and nuts with a floral and herbal hop aroma and taste. Lasting but not over powering bitterness and a woody astringency in the after-taste. Slight herbal, almost tobacco flavour as it warms up.
