Bomber from Corti Bros. Pours translucent gold with a white head. Aroma of light malt with a hint of noble hop. Near full bodied. Flavor is grassy/spicy over a nice "warming" slightly roasty malt. Finishes bitter enough for me. Pretty tasty.

Bomber from Bom Dia in Noe Valley. Cloudy orange color with a lasting one finger white head. Malty bready grassy hop aroma. The flavor is liquid bread, mildly sweet and very balanced with a slightly bitter finish. Great mouthfeel, very crisp with medium body. Elite for the style.

jgb9348 (5605) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - MAY 4, 2015
Rich copper coloured body with hints of golden tints and a bit of thin tan head. Aroma of light malt, a touch of hops, some unfinished sugars and a bit of grassy bite. Light to Medium-bodied; Strong herbal flavour with a nice and refined grassy bite with a subdued yet strong lager taste and feel. Aftertaste shows a light and rather deep malt presence with hints of oatmeal and grain, along with some light hops. Overall,a balanced beer with a nice taste overall and nice to sample with some thai food. I sampled this pint on draught at Pok Pok in Portland, Oregon on 03-May-2015 which coupled well with the Northern Thai food.

cpetrone84 (1810) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 28, 2014
Pour is a lightly hazed pale copper with a lot of tight off white head that lingers for quite some time. Nose has honey up front, a nice grain bill very lightly mixed in with some floral hops. Taste is similar, lots of honey, herbal tea, grain, a hint of spice, sweet maltiness. Body is medium to full with a very assertive carbona tion and smooth silky feel.

Prufrockstar (1955) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 21, 2014
Bottle. Clear amber pour with ample white head. Minimal lacing. Aroma: cherry, honey, toffee, sulfur. Taste: moderately sweet with moderately bitter, lasting finish. Toast and cereal. Palate: medium body, average carbonation, slick texture. Overall: I don’t really know much about this Heller Bock style, but yet again Heater Allen makes a darned fine beer I enjoy.

Steve_0 (3745) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUL 18, 2014
Bottle at home, picked up at Belmont Station in Portland. Pour is slightly hazy golden orange with a big frothy white head and great lacing. Big honey and melon characteristics - cracker malts, bread, doughy, and grassy aroma. Taste is clean and inviting - light citrus, dough, caramel, honey, grass, and melons with a crisp finish and lingering bready malt. Medium body with high carbonation. Really nice stuff.
