Our artisan in charge created the Stoke Bomber Bohemian Ale to straddle the ale/lager debate perfectly. Everyone will enjoy the interaction of wheat and lightly roasted barley with the lively citrus and pepper flavours. The ale team will promote its rich golden hue, fully rounded mouthfeel and engaging honeyed malt complexity. The lager camp will insist that the spicy hop emphasis is classic Bohemian. Which side are you on?

3fourths (8100) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAY 4, 2013
bottle. recent import by Shelton Brothers. opaque dull amber body with a small white head, some lacing. underfermented raw wort nose of Crackliní Oat Bran cereal and dry dog food and creamed wheat and crystal malt, so bad that the enjoyable bright citrus and tropical fruit hops canít save it. goopy, sludgy, thick and chewy body with a lot of unfermented sugar; add strongly bitter high acid hop and itís very stew-like and raw tasting. if they could ferment this out and maybe filter it a little, I can see where it could be and it would be beautiful. maybe this batch is a dud though, I canít imagine Shelton Brother bringing this in if this is the intended smell, flavor and mouthfeel.

Iím not sure if this would be something to drink all night or not. Itís a bit of a tease in that it definitely has more character than mainstream slosh, but maybe not enough to stop me wishing for something a bit more challenging after the first bottle. The claim that it straddles the Ale/Lager divide is bollocks. Itís a refreshing lager that goes down well after a dayís work, treat it as such and you wonít be disappointed.

Ungstrup (29477) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - DEC 31, 2012
Bottled. A golden beer with a beige head. The aroma has notes of fruits,malt, and caramel. The flavor is sweet with notes of lemons, hops, malt, and caramel, leading to a bitter finish. Nice, but not Bohemian.

mkel07 (3557) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - NOV 19, 2012
650ml bottle. Pours a strong sunshine orange colour with an even layer of white fam. Looks pretty good in the glass. Malty aroma is pleasing as is the flavour. This is a good session beer.

Travlr (12289) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - NOV 12, 2012
Bottle recommended by Eric at CK, thank you sir! "Try the Stroke beer" he said. Hazy golden yellow color, fluffy white head, solid lacing. Aroma of peppery and dusty lemons and straw. Taste is peppery lemons and cigars. Decent.

beerledgend (1197) - Waterloo, Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - OCT 27, 2012
Nice hop aroma. Great slightly hazy orange colour with thin white head. Crunchy hop flavour that lingers on the tongue for ages. Amazingly well balanced, another great Stoke beer.

hawthorne00 (2472) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JUL 6, 2012
Bottle. Gold with an inch of white head. Aroma of hay, toast, honey, very rip gooseberries, mixed citrus zest. High bead, slightly creamy mouthfeel. Taste is sweet and fruity with berries and light bread, then ctirus and pepper. Bitter finish with some spices. A fatter KŲlsch with Kiwi hops is I guess what they say youíll get and you do. A little leaner would suit me better, but itís pretty gluggable.

jdpeebs (687) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JUN 30, 2012
650ml bottle. Cloudy golden colour. Little head that disappears quickly. Nice malty aromas. Sweet initial taste that finishes with a subtle hop bitterness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Dredd (697) - Bentleigh, AUSTRALIA - JUN 29, 2012
Aroma is a let down, metallic with some breadiness. Colour is cloudy brown-amber. Flavour is citrusy, almost a light lime citrus coming through mid palate with a nice bitter finish. Close, but not quite
