2.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draft sample at Whole Foods Fairfax, VA on 10/20/10. Pours an amber color with a medium creamy head. Good head retention and lacing. Aroma of big buttery notes and a bit of caramel. The taste is bitter hops, toasted malts, caramel, butter and a spicy finish. Medium bodied. Odd beer and quite the butter bomb.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours out a coppery ruby color with a thick ivory rocky head. Smelled like a typical lager plus toast, very light toffee, and grassy hops. Taste was almost exactly the same as smell. Interesting. Potentially the most unique beer I have had thus far. However, not my cup of tea. Balanced, but with a funny tasting hop profile. Not sure how to pin this one down.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bomber pours brilliant clear copper with soothing short lived tan head. The aroma tosses up soft rounded notes of floral hops, mild spicy hops and a touch of sweetness. The taste is smooth and easy drinkin’ with soft yet fairly bold floral hops and then picking up pulses of spicy hops with a supporting note or two of sweet maltiness. Smooth hoppy and slightly lagery brew. Well done.

Brew Three, Vintage 2010.
22oz bottle. Pours clear orange-amber color. Nice hop aroma. A touch of bread, lager yeast scent, pale malts, and loads of citrus and honey. Flavor has a nice hop complexity. Ever sip seem to have a different hop characteristic. Grass, floral, herbal, and a nice peppery spice. Nice sweet malt flavor, with a touch of corn and vegetables. Flavors fit the description of the "style".

Pours a soft copper amber with one finger of creamy sandstone head. Nose is rich, bready malt and spicy hops with a mild citrus rind undertone. Flavor shows resinous hops with an earthy/herbal character and sweet malt background. Lightly toasted and caramelly grain. Palate is spicy with a kind of astringent bitterness.

Bottle at coffee district. I can’t say that was really impressed with this beer but it did hold a few good qualities. The carbonation was right in the pocket, a lot of the flavors, though being somewhat bland in my opinion, were dancing frantically on my tounge from the first sip to the last. The flavors were a mix of wheat and bitter hops. An enjoyable beer but nothing to write home about.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
22 oz bottle. Poured nice with soapy head. Reddish blond hue. Aroma, herbal hops. Looked and smelled better than it tasted. A lot of grapefruit with a lingering finish. Kind of one dimensional.
