3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A cloudy orange pour with a tall white head. Opens with a light fruitiness on the nose. Quite a bit of bread with a touch of caramel, butterscotch, and cardboard. Moderate yeast aroma, maybe a little fruit. The flavor is fairly sweet and malty as well. Lots of bread, caramel, and toffee with some of the same cardboard notes that were present on the nose. Not really a fan of this one.

Bomber from Malt & Vine. 7.2% Pours amber with a foamy 3 finger beige head. Aroma of slightly earthy roast malt. Med body. Flavor is malty with some earthy bitterness. Keeps oscillating sweet/not sweet. With a little time my mouth starts to pucker. Good drink, not sure it’s spot on for style.
