2.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Aroma is bready...bready? an American Pale? where are the hops? some bitterness in the initial taste with excessive maltiness in the finish. not balanced at all. very sweet. is there corn extract? I doubt it, but thats the type of sweetness I pick up. it is very smooth and somewhat refreshing, and yes, maybe very sessionable. but I for one dont want my pale ales so watery and weak. with the excessive malt, amp this up to somewhere north of 60 ibus, or cut back the malt, and we might have a new lawn mower beer. bomber on sale for $3.97 which might be $0.50 too high in its current miller lite-like incarnation

Nice Pale Ale. Great aroma. Nice light orange color. Tasted a little sharp maybe to much carb. Lingering dank, slightly spicy bitterness. I'd order it again.

2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
One word. Meh. LOOKS like it should have some great flavor, and thatís where it ends. It is a very one dimensional beer in taste which consists of hops and zero malt. Itís odd, because when you look it the dark golden color, your mind tells you it will be pretty flavorful. It isnít. Will not be seeking this one out again.

Bottle. Grainy nose. Pours cloudy orange with a wispy white head/lacing. Evenly balanced, comes across almost lager-like with the low(ish) ibu. I get roasted corn on the lingering palate. Good hot weather quencher.

UPDATED: OCT 19, 2012 Great amber color, but the beer itself is very light and airy and lacks the taste and flavor that the color implies. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours golden yellow with middling head. Aroma of hops and grains. Flavor is lightly hoppy, with some licorice notes in the background. All in all, not a bad beer, but nothing to write home about, either.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
22 oz. bottle to glass. Pours clear lighter amber color with a sudsy white head that fades to a thin film and some lacing. Aroma is malty and light with a subtle hop presents. Taste is watery malt with the hops showing and letting some bitterness through. The malt is watery caramel and the bitterness follows suit. Palate is thin to medium with a watery chalky finish. Its drinkable, but very over priced for what it is.

2.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bomber pours a dull clear grayish light copper/orange with a small white head, pretty ugly looking. Aroma of hops with sweet citrus fruit and caramel. Taste has some upfront bitter hops and then drops into a void of nothing, all flavor just disappears. Iíll avoid this in the future.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at SPSBF. Pours a clear gold with a white head that lasts throughout the beer. Aroma has some grassy hops with a hint of bitterness from grapefruit and a bit of earthy grains. Flavor has some sweet grains up front with a nice hop combination with grapefruit and grass notes.
