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.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle (April 14, 2014 bottling).
Head is initially average sized, frothy, white, mostly diminishing.
Body is medium yellow.
Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain, cracker), lightly hoppy (herbs, flowers), lightly yeasty (dough).
Flavor is moderately to heavily sweet, lightly bitter.
Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly to moderately bitter.
Medium body, watery/syrupy/velvety texture, lively carbonation.
Very little going on in the nose, and a bit too syrupy sweet for me. No flaws, but plain and simple.
