2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle sample at a tasting at Stasís place. Thanks zvikar. Hazy reddish amber. Slightly sourish aroma with a big of vinegar, yeast, malt, caramel and some overripe fruits. Sweetish-sourish flavor with malt, yeast, graininess, some fruitiness and a bit of harsh bitterness. Medium-bodied. Seems like something went wrong here.

On tap. Reddish hue creamy head. Aroma is slightly skunky hops, malty cracker aroma. Flavor is similar. Hops, solid maltiness is very prominent. Decent mouthfeel. But not very good.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Nice pour with a big head. The aroma is fairly bland and yeasty, but it sweetens up as it warms. It is a pretty mild ale - there is a dash of grassy hops, and some muffin flavor, but the taste is pretty unexciting overall. It is based on an old Irish recipe, which is cool, but the result is a mediocre brew.,

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle - bomber. Pours clear deep reddish amber with a medium quickly diminishing beige head, dissipates to a ring but laces fairly well. Aroma is very malty, nutty, toffee, caramel. Flavor follows, medium sweet, no real bitterness, malts coming at you from every direction, some honey as well. A bit of a lingering odd, a bit tart, finish, but otherwise not so bad. Medium body.

1.7 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Poured 2 - 12 oz bottles into a tall .5 liter glass. The only impressive thing about this beer is the color. This beerís color belies its flavor, making this a very disappointing ale. There was no head through the entire 6 pack. Barely an aroma. A very simple and unmemorable ale that lacks any malt or hops. This brew relies on its honey components, which in the end wind up tasting like tin. I would not buy this again.

Bomber at home. Aroma of caramel malts, figs, raisins. A simple, flavorful, and very well balanced clear amber ale. Notes of berries and toffee. Quick, crisp, finish. Slight acidity.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
My wife picked this up on a whim in Long Island, and we enjoyed it at a party with a New Yorker, and it was okay. Analyzing it however, I find it just above average. The aroma is sweet, and it looks like a ale (it is) in the glass. The taste is a little more bitter than Iíd like, but very drinkable. For the palate, no distinct flavors come out and grab me. Overall itís a good ale, but itís nothing special.
