3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
22 oz. bottle sent in a trade from Hayduke. A clear medium brown beer that has a nice tall soapy light tan head that leaves some cool lacing. A nice creamy feel. A rich malty aroma with subtle fruit. Flavor is quite pleasant. Very nice citrus fruit with that toasty and nutty malt. This is also nicely hopped with some grapefruit tartness and bitterness that is in just the right dose. Throw in just a dab of cocoa. This was nicely crafted.

Bomber from Harry & David in Medford, OR. Pours dark ruddy copper with a 3 finger foamy beige head. Aroma is sort of roast malt with some citrus. Med body with foamy carb. Flavor is malt forward with a good deal of roastiness. There seems to be citrus. It’s a bit nobly spicy. Overall it’s a fairly smooth amber with lots of fruit and roast malt. Finishes dryish and bitter. Drinks very well for an amber.
