3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Poured from a draft into a pint glass at Manzanita Brewing Company in Santee, Calif. Color was hazy banana. About a finger of head. Uneven cloudy lacing on the top. Plenty of nice film in the sides.
Smelled clean and light with just a touch of cirrus notes.
Tasted wheat, citrus, water and light banana notes.
Light body. Lively (above average carbonation. Clean, crisp and refreshing.
Just an OK beer, but the feel really stood out. Do you want a summer brew? Then this is it.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bomber from Beverages 4 Less in Santee, CA. Pours hazy gold with a few small floaters. It smells very fruity fresh - maybe citrus. Near medium body with firm carbonation. Flavor is light malt with arguably citrus, then the malt gets a bit paper/grainy. Finishes pretty bitter, and thatís a good finish.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from Whispering Willows: Created a small layer of film covering as a head while the liquid was a slightly hazed straw gold color. Again, another one of Manzanitaís recipes that has absolutely no aroma other than a faint hint that itís a beer with an undeniable scent of alcohol. The flavor is bland yet quaffable and Iím only able to find a minor combination of grassy grains and hops.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
22oz bottle. Rating #6. Medium golden yellow pour with a small white head. Either Iím stuffed up or there is no aroma whatsoever, but a buddy that was sharing it said the same thing, so I guess Iím not stuffed up.flavor was similar in so much as there was none yo really speak of, very strange and very plain but no flaws either so it wasnít horrible.

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
22 oz bottle from Distillerís Outlet in Poway. $3.99 a bomber is fine by me. Too bad the beer isnít. Warm amber with wight head. Hint of haze. Nose is light malty sweet. Reminds me of a malt liquor. Taste is just eh. Mid sweet to light aspirin to eh. The kitchen sink is going to enjoy the rest of this one for me. The score is continually dropping as I drink the beer.
