3.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bomber bottle. The aroma is about half the strength, but still smells like any other malt liquor. It also looks like any other malt liquor. Golden with decent carbonation and some lacing. The taste starts out like a malt liquor would, except lighter, and then turns into a slight hoppy flavor... Very interesting. The palate is ok... for a malt liquor. Overall, the best malt liquor i have had, though that is not saying much on a beer rating site.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Location: 22 oz bottle from Half Time, 11/11/12
Aroma: The nose is fairly light, quite malty and yeasty, with some clean hop notes as well
Appearance: This one pours a hazy golden-orange color with a small white head and no lace
Flavor: The taste is much like the nose, heavy malty, a little sweet, and a lightly hop presence
Palate: The body is light-medium, it has a decent feel, average carbonation, and a clean finish
Overall, this one isn’t too bad, especially considering the style. It isn’t going to blow anyone away from an awesomeness standpoint, but it is plenty drinkable and completely inoffensive.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bomber bottle from Central Market. A classy malt liquor, say it ain’t so. Fairly average look: golden color with a thin white head. Thin aroma of light grain, cardboard and sweetness. Flavor: tastes like a malt liquor but not offensive or harsh...I suppose that’s a compliment in this category. Fun beer.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
The aroma is corn, rice, adjuncts, booze. The appearance is clear gold, effervescent, white head. The flavor is corn sweetness, light noble hops, light booze burn. The finish is sweet, then a boozy, solvent like burn. Medium in body, greasy mouthfeel. Not bad. I did this beer just to boost my ratings of malt liquors, and in that category, this beer is a strong performer.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cream soda gold, fluffy white head. Nose is light malt. Slightly sweet with a healthy dose of alcohol on the tongue. Thin through the middle, alcohol predominates the profile. A little hop kick towards then end, chased by jealous alcohol. Had to try it...OK.

I love it when craft breweries tackle malt liquor and though this isn’t my favorite Brewers Share offering. This clear orange beer is quite complex with a lingering aftertaste. Not much aroma but a nice imperial pils like taste profile.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bomber from Total Wine in Sacramento, CA. Pours amber gold with a big frothy white head and champagne bubbles. Aroma is heavy malt with some noble/earthy hop. Med body. Frothy carb. Flavor is heavy malt, tends to be a bit heavy on sweet, but there’s some earthy/herby hop that tends to cut that way down. It might fairly be described as trying to head towards dry, and there is some bitter. Way better that what’s in most of those 24 oz cans.
