3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bomber from Beverages 4 Less in Santee, CA. Pours dark ruddy copper with a creamy/bubbly beige head. Aroma of smooth roast malt and perhaps a bit of grassy hop. Med body. Flavor is primarily smooth roast malt, and I think the hops are grassy. The finish approaches astringent, and the malt seems to provide bitter. It’s certainly bitter, and it tends towards dry. Excellent.

Decent amount flavor but not as powerful as I would have hoped. Touch of smoke and roasted caramel.

4.4 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
A toasty almost vanilla aroma sneaks through the soft pillowy head which laces very nicely. Although the abv isn’t anything to brag about, it is layered very nicely. I’m not sure if it is the type of malts they used, but is is a unique, still German tasting Kolsch. By far the one of the best smelling beers and one which will not disappoint.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle @ home. Pours a deep reddish orange appearance with a big, light brown head. Quite rich caramel, Munich malty, toffee, light citrusy, straw aroma. A little fruity (apple, pear), toasty caramel malty, toffee, grassy, earthy, a bit nutty flavor with a floral, herbal, grassy aftertaste. A little too sweet for my taste. A bit of a disappointment but not all that bad.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
From bottle. Mild musty grain, light sweetness with a bit of hop tang. Medium coppery amber clear with rocky-foamy off-white lacing head. Medium body with medium carbonation. Starts medium sweet with musty grain notes, biscuit, and some caramel. Nutty finish with nice hop bitterness. Pretty plain but balanced and well done. Sweet nutty after.

3.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Appearance has a dirty brown color supporting thin head and nil lace. Aroma has a clean sense of sweet malt and hop. Taste is grainy having a dark fruit note with the lightly sweet malt fallowed by the noble hops. Mouthfeel is medium with good carbonation. Nothing complex, just a good brew that seems to fallow the style fairly well.

Bomber from the Utah State Store on 3300 South. Pours a dark copper color with a medium white head. A sweet Munich nose with light fruit. The flavor is nice and clean: caramel, sweet malts, light bitter hops, light tropical fruit struggling to get through. Very flavorful and smooth. Nice.
