3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Rather weak in color, but not in any other aspect. I was afraid of this at first because I don’t like fruity beer as a rule. However, there is no discernable pomegrante flavor at all. Just very smooth very drinable if heady beeeer.

Nice amber color with a decent amount of head. The pomegranate flavor is not very prevalent although it does taste mildly fruity. Aftertaste doesn’t linger long at all. The alcohol hit me well after I finished and felt quite strong. Perhaps I shouldn’t drink on an empty stomach.

Great label, nice story and all, and it smells really nice. But geez, this is a train wreck, Very medicinal flavor, and unmistakeably pomegranate flavored. But perhaps pomegranates shouldn’t be in beer. No thank you.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours an amberish/orange with mild carbonation under an ecru head that lasts as a thick film. There is a definite fruitiness to the aroma, but more in the guise of citric PNW’s than anything else. A touch of stinky-foot yeastiness throws me for a second but some sweet caramel malts bring me back on course. Mildly grounded by malts, the flavor is fruity and dry with a defined hop presence... although a seedy, "berry" flavor comes back in the finish. (Without ever having sampled real, live pomegranates, I’m getting a good impression of them through beer. Strange.) Mild alcohol creeps up late. Quite a powerful "Fruit Beer", and rather an interesting one at that.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Clear, ripe red appearance, under lacey off-white head.
Lovely aromatics! Bright fruit, lush malt, plentiful, but not prominent, hops. Malt is king, and fruit is...queen, I’d guess?
Beauty on the tastebuds, once slipped onto the tongue and into the belly! Slick, supple, sensuous, delicious! Juicy malt, tasty fruit, tantalizing hops...gorgeous! 8% abv not felt, really...yet.
"Imperial Amber Ale"...yup, that says it..."brewed with luscious promegranate juice"...nothing much else to say, but, thumbs up!

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Copper color with a diminished head of light beige bubbles. Fairly fruit aromas, with grapefruit zest, pomegranate and mild apple juice. Hints of malt, but I also catch a medicinal scent when I sniff too hard. Initially this has a light spice quality that makes me thick of christmas. This is suddenly replaced by strong alcohol and lighter fluid flavor. My stomach is starting to burn. While this isn’t ’that" strong, I can certainly taste and feel it early on. I hope the benefits of the pomegranate are still in this one, as I think I will need them. I gain very little pleasure from this one. The strong alcohol tastes and feel really do nothing for me. For some reason I feel like I am drinking a malt liquor, without the corn. Flavors come out a bit more with some toasted malt and lightly sweetened almond. Still not digging this one much.

Bomber; Nose is sweet with definate pomegranate aroma; I used to pick and chew these this often as a kid during the eight years I lived in Sacramento. Slightly hazy rust colored with a medium, but shortlived beige head; flavor is bitter caramel with tem pomegranate fruitinessand a little alcohol and bitterness in the finish!

Pours a clear red amber with small white head. Aroma is fairly sweet and fruity. Taste has lots of light fruits, apple, peach, a little citrus. I can taste the pom, but it’s not really dominant.
