Bottle. Pours dark ruby with a thin white head. Aroma is a bit nutty. Taste adds some dark fruit and a strong pilsner malt finish. Mouthfeel is light with a crisp carb. Solid lagerish beer. Good intro to alt.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bomber bought at Super 1 in CDA, ID. Aroma consists of dough, caramel, spices (cinnamon?). Pours clear copper with a medium beige head that collapses after a couple minutes, leaving a blanket of foam; leaves cobwebby lacework. Taste starts out sweet and a little tart before becoming pretty bitter. Mouthfeel is creamy, body medium, carbonation soft. Pretty tasty--it exceeded my expectations.

3.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Nice malt flavors that make for a very drinkable beer. Hops are balanced and leave a bit on the palate but not too much. Decent alcohol level so it is not overpowering. Highly drinkable and enjoyable.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured a finger of head on a dark amber colored body. Looks great.
It smells old (it is an altbier after all). Seriously, it has a good barnyard/hay and earth smell to it.
It’s fairly complex for an alt with some mild maltiness to start, then some hop spice and finishes with a bit of burnt wood.
The texture is crisp with moderate carbonation.
I haven’t tasted many, but this is the best altbier I’ve had.

Bomber pours a bright reddish/copper with a large bubbly khaki head. Aroma of caramel, toffee, and cereal grains. Taste of cereal grains of dry caramel with a bitter hop finish. Simple and enjoyable.
