2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle:   Amber in color, a little deep, moderate to large frothy off-white head, fairly nice lacing.   A little bit of a grainy malt like aroma, some basement.   Little hop aspect, if any.   Soft maltiness on the tongue, touch of tartness, a little bit of soil or earth.   Body is lacking, seems to fall off really quickly.   Not much about this one stands out, except for its appearance.   Seems very shallow and lacking in depth.   Finishes with some stale musty maltiness, hint of hay and straw, with some cereal aspects.   Not a top notch Amber.   Certainly not bad, but very forgetable.

Bomber from a Fred Meyer on 196th St in Seattle. Pours amber with a 4 finger foamy beige head. Aroma is mildly sour/funky/earth. Med body. Flavor is lightly metallic and a little barnyard. If itís infected, itís one of those times when it worked. If itís not infected, these guys have a serious taste for different beer. Cause it has interesting flavor itís rating higher than many ambers.

22oz bottle from grocery store. Sour, floral aroma. Color golden brown with excessive white head. Heavy lees in bottle. Any sweetness or bitterness overwhelmed by sour. Body light and slick. Not what I expected from an amber ale. Sour beer fans might like. I couldnít finish it.

Pint @ The Traveler. Ruby brown in color. Smells so sweet. Malt is tempered with enough hops to make it drinkable. Not very balanced. Leaves funky taste in my mouth.
