3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
22 oz. bottle purchased @ Julio’s Liquor’s for $4.99 minus Wild Six Discount. Used a Kolsch glass. Ruby / brown color with sizable, white lasting head. Light lace. Overall nice eye appeal. Nose of malt and some floral hop like aroma’s. Toffee flavors with graininess and a decent hop bitterness in the back end to give it a more traditional German feel to it. The bitterness lingers just a bit. A nice offering.

Dark ruby red in color with a thick Bubbly head. Lacing is very poor. Malty aroma. Vanilla and Caramel notes. Toasted peanuts also noticeable in the aroma. Taste like liquid peanut butter. Watery texture with a abrupt finish. Light-bodied with low carbonation. For the price a good beer.

Bottle. Light brown with pillowy tan head and decent lacing. Smells like a sticky bin with raisins and metal. Tastes sweet initially then a mild hop kicks in. Full mouth feel, mild hop finish with a hint of pithiness. Not bad.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bomber. The smell is sweet and malty to me, with a little funk. The appearance is a light brown with a creamy head. The taste is a sour malt taste that finishes a dry sour. The palate is a dry sour, with a funky malt aftertaste. Overall, this beer is ok. Alts are not my favorite, so that prolly has something to do with it as well.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
22 oz. bottle- Pours autumn amber with a nice rocky light tan head. The aroma is malty sweet, caramel, nutty, some hops, but very little. Taste is caramel malt, sweet, brown sugary, but drinkable. Body is a little thin, and carbonation is a little light, and that is my biggest problem with the beer, but it makes it sessionable.

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.

UPDATED: JUL 6, 2012 Brown pour, no head, little lacing. Aroma is very light - caramel, grain, mild nuttiness. Sharp bitter, sweet, sour. Some citrus, hops, grain, dark fruit. Lingering finish.
Improves as you drink it.

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