bomber pours slightly hazy dark orange with frothy off white head. Aroma of cooked vegetables, butter, caramel. Flavor is malty, with hops present but somewhat muted, notes of water on the finish, light bitterness lingering. Medium bodied with watery feel. Not bad but expected a bit more from full sail.

Bomber from Safeway. Clear, light amber pour with a short, off-white head leaving minimal lace. Malty, ripe fruit nose. Medium-light body with light carbonation. Ripe fruit, citrus, grain, tea and sugar. Finish is astringent and bitter. Good, but not entirely sessionable and not really one of the best ESBs I’ve had.

bottle. nutty, toasty, crunchy nose with sharp apple / pear esters, light corn whiskey / grain touches, toffee / caramel is pleasantly snappy; hops are quiet but earthy / gritty / rough. toasty and crunchy malt, but somewhat doughy altogether with the heavy-feeling body, bready malts and "baker’s yeast" character..

"Age? I dunno. Dusty, but otherwise not bad. Balanced crackers and piney earthy hops. Decent for the style but nothing to get excited about............."

Being one of my favourite styles, I had big hopes for this one, but alas, it was not to be- very, very pedestrian.

Bottle from Sam’s. Hazy orange with a small white head. Nose is heavily malted, bread, grain, caramel. Flavor is pretty similar, very sweet for a beer with bitter in the name. This beer sucks. But ill probably finish it because i am poor.
