2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
I can’t believe that I never rated this one! Pours a darker golden color. Aroma is of your typical Buzzards Bay malts, hops and grain. Flavor is the same. Nothing special about this one, except for the whole Lizzie Borden thing that people talk about in Fall River and the tap handle which is an axe.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
22 oz. bottle pours a dark brown color. Aroma is dried leaves and almost a rye hint.
Body is light and astringent. The finish is metallic. Wow... Not good.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Colored dark brown, amber. 1 finger head and fades fast. Aroma is interesting. a bit of wood, penny and some moldy pineapple. Tastes like copper penny. the finish is like turpentine and shoe polish. man, I can’t get through his tinny pour.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bomber I picked up on an East Coast trip. This beer pours a huge beige head that oh so slowly fades leaving sticky lacing. Bread and biscuit notes. Plenty of malts. Hops bring some spice and floral notes. A very different beer and not an over powering one at all. Call it subtle. The first rater mentioned root beer and I also get that. The spiciness is almost rye. This is an odd duck.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle at home. Deep brown pour with slight reddish hue, attractive beige one finger head. Nose is hops and berry. Tastes of pine (sorta artificial piney), resin, perfume, Hawaiian punch, and root beer. Very dry and touch thin.
