COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Medium-bodied with an appealing amber hue, this is the First Ale of the Republic. Its organic pale, Munich, and crystal malts create a gentle sweet character that is difficult to resist. From organic Hallertauer hops come a zesty flavor and aroma that beautifully balance Organic Amberís malt profile. The result: Truly delicious ale that salutes organic farmers and all the goodness they bring to our tables.

"has a bit too much of what my buddy calls "dirt malt" for me to really get into this one. spicy hops in the aroma and flavor, enough to balance and then some, but the mix of flavors is so so at best."

22 oz. bomber from Emerald Liquor. Nice colorful label and amusing name, and kudos for being organic. Aroma is spicy, nutty, bread, with slight pine notes. Pours hazy amber/orange with a decent white head and spotty lacing. Taste is medium sweet and medium bitter, light and refreshing with enough malt backbone to give it body. The Santiam hops add a spiciness and uniqueness to the flavor. Palate is light to medium body, slick texture, average carb., and balanced finish. It reminds me of a classic British pale ale.

Bulk_Carrier (2270) - Juneau, Alaska, USA - JUL 27, 2014
Reviewed from notes. This was poured into a pint glass. The appearance was a decent hazy looking orange color with a quickly dissipating one finger white foamy head. There was some light lacing that slid into the beer. The smell had some roasty dried caramel malts that showed some light sweetness. Also, there were some light nuts. The taste was mainly sweet but also had a decent roasty dried caramel. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a slight watery finish. Overall, weird beer. I guess itís just weird beer night. Would I have this again, probably not on purpose but I still could be swayed if I had to.

HighlanderOne (1024) - Bergen County, New Jersey, USA - JUL 4, 2014
Poured from bottle. I smell malt, and fruit. Dark a amber, no head to speak of. Sweet malt flavor with lager hops in flavor. I taste cherry, which works well with the malt. Earth and citrus in aftertaste. A bit watery in feel. Pretty good and different.

On tap at the brewpub. Clear amber pour with an off white head. Malty bouquet. Big malty notes. Average body and mouthfeel.

penstemon (127) - - MAY 30, 2014
Pours clear deep amber with an off-white head, not much lacing. Malts dominate the aroma, slightly sweet grain, honeyed biscuit, and cracker. Also soft hop aromas that are floral, grassy and citrusy. Taste is rye crispbread, grain, a bit peppery, and very light hop flavor (citrus and floral). Light bitterness. Light-medium body, soft, smooth carbonation. A little bland but easy drinking.

Blom (836) - Odense, DENMARK - MAY 26, 2014
On tap. Amber with a nice head. Breadlike maltiness with floral hops. OK, but not one to remember.

Very smooth, malty amber without much hop bitterness. No real aroma to speak of, but it's a beautiful amber color. I'd be happy to drink this again.

Hypo_Luxa (58) - Osaka, JAPAN - MAR 12, 2014
bitter sweet, med bodied, bit of a soapy mouth feel, but not all that bad. Caramel malts leads nicely into the Hallertauer hops. Short citrusy punch at the end. Aftertaste is honey and caramel. Not a bad beer, but not great. Would be really nice on a hot spring day.

Bomber pours an almost clear amber with small disappearing white head. Aroma is caramel malts and weak hops. Taste is mostly sweet with slight bitterness in the finish. Body is medium with average carbonation and a soapy mouthfeel. OK for an amber, but not one Iíll eagerly try again.
