Tried a bomber while in Mammoth, summer 2014. Nice thick foamy head and strong caramel nose. Goes downhill after that but glad I experienced the local offerings.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Enjoyed on draft (as “The Ahwahnee Amber Ale”) at the Curry Village check in in Yosemite, as well 12 oz bottle purchased as a single at the Lodgepole general store in Sequoia National Park. The pour is light haze copper amber with a smallish off white head. The aroma is cereal grain malt, softly sweet. The taste is clean cereal malts, slightly sweet, finishing with a hint of nut. The palate is light to medium soft carbonation with a clean finish. Nice Amber.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 7/20
Nose of strong caramel with nods to molasses, sugar cane, and bread. A clear medium-amber pour with a thin, non-lasting, white head and no lacing. The tongue is subdued after the nose. Caramel, toast, and malt. Medium body and medium carbonation. Overall, less taste than the aroma indicated, but easy to drink. Thanks for the bottle, Ken.

This beer was made for multiple session. It’s smooth with a focus on malts with little hops, it’s thin at the end with a red gold color

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle to glass. Very sweet grainy malt. Pours a clear orange-red with a white head that leaves a collar and slight lacing. A slightly cloying, syrupy malt taste that is light biscuit and soda cracker. Medium low bitterness. Thin mouthfeel does not work for this style.
