bhensonb (10688) - Woodland, California, USA - DEC 30, 2007
Bomber; October 2007 Petaluma Valley Rotary Fund Raiser label. Roasted malt aroma with a bit of floral? Coppery amber color with tiny bubbles and a transient white head. Medium body with rather sharp carbonation. Caramel roast flavor, but there is definitely balancing bitter. A bit spicey. Finishes quite dry. Seems more of an ESB than anything else.

Vac (2445) - San Diego, California, USA - NOV 28, 2007
Pours with an amber body topped by a thin, off-white head with some lacing left on the glass. It’s slightly sweet and malty with notes of caramel and toffee as well as a slight grassy, bitter, hop note. Medium bodied, smooth and a touch dry.
