The smell is a little funny, a bit of butter maybe. Looks nice though, good red. This is a pretty straightforward red ale, and I’m digging easy and unassuming this evening.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bomber from Taylor’s Market in Sacramento, CA. Pours a very, very dark mahogany with a foamy beige head. Smells of rough roast malt, sweet with a hint of chocolate, with some floral aspects. Med body with foamy carbonation. Flavor is roast malt with a light touch of chocolate. Hop seems to vary between citrus and pine. Kind of a rough, unsmooth finish. Which is ok, it adds character.
