2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
22oz. Very basic clean crisp lager, some off putting flavors from the malts that I didn’t quite agree with. Almost a little metallic in flavor. Appearance is basic, aromas are non-existent, but I’ve had worse.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bomber. Hazy pale orange with a nice white head. Mild fruit, grains, mild hops, light spice. Nice carbonation - quite bubbly, average body, starts a little sweet but becomes dry and slightly bitter on the finish. Leave a bit of a soapy off taste at the end - not well balanced yet still not bad.

On tap @ Beer Temple. Pale blonde color, hazy. White rocky head. Aroma is refreshing, grainy/grassy, fruity, mildly sweet. Fairly neutral flavor ever so slightly sour. The finish saves this beer: nice and bitter

Cask at GBBF 2010. An unclear golden beer with a thin off-white head. The aroma has strong notes of fruits - mostly peaches and lemons. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt and grapefruits, leading to a dry and bitter finish.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
22oz traded bottle. Bottling date of 9.24.10 so pretty fresh still. Really wish all lagers were made this well. Hazy copper-orange color with a foamy white head and just some spots of lacing. Aroma was pretty strong German hops, lager yeast and sweeter, Vienna malts. Great lager flavor with (relatively) strong hops. Ended a little citrus/fruity. Flavors continued to get more complex as it warmed. Really cool.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy golden coloured body with a nice large white head. Aroma of very strong, pungent alcohol, malt, metal and a touch of light frutiness. Medium-bodied; Strong malt flavours with a dose of light hops, some apricot and peach tastes, a bit of floral notes and some major metallic tastes. Aftertaste is relatively nice, some deep pungent maltiness, some good hop balance and a mild dryness that couples well with the finish. Overall, a good beer, not amazing, but definitely good for the style and a welcome sample! I sampled this 65 cL bottle purchased from Knightly Spirits (Orange Blossom) in Orlando, Florida on 15-November-2010, sampled at home in Washington on 27-November-2010.
