COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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?

Gold coloured with a big attractive head. Weakish aromas of malt, honey and a touch of citrus. Flavours of citrus, caramel malt, bread and a nice spicy/bitter finish. An ale in my mind and a very good one.

KeefOz (1155) - Tarragindi, AUSTRALIA - JUN 15, 2013
UPDATED: JUN 17, 2013 650ml bottle. Poured an uninviting cloudy brown with a one-finger off-white foamy head that diminished quickly but gave good soap-ring-like lacing. Light to moderate carbonation with small bubbles forming trails. Subtle aroma of sweet malt, a trace of hops, very slight roasted grain and maybe a hint of spice and citrus. Taste initially of sweetish malt followed by a citrus bitterness/sourness and a high acid hops on the back palate. Light to medium body. Long slightly acidic and bitter finish.

fletchfighters (1275) - AUSTRALIA - JUN 10, 2013
Bomber---- obviously Hazy straw yellow color, half finger of bright white head. Falls to a thick collar. Good soapy lacing on sides. Spicy nose with citrus and stone fruit. Touches of pepper with slight hints of the malt backbone. Taste is more towards the malt side. Bread and caramel, then citrus and some spice. Medium bodied, prickly carbonation. Spicy, citrus and dry, stale bread finish with hints of honey. Pretty decent actually

Sevenlee (1572) - Central Coast, NSW, AUSTRALIA - JUN 1, 2013
Pours a hazy golden colour with a beige head. Aroma is malt, fruit and caramel. Taste is medium sweet of fruit and some bread leading to a dry lightly spicy finish. Not bad.

3fourths (8639) - 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.

DylansDad (455) - North Shore, Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - APR 5, 2013
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 (30812) - 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 (4350) - 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.

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.
