3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Nutty and metallic with little bit of chocolate and toast. A bit thin and lacking richness. Feels a bit watery and not complete. Good but not great.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bomber from Dice. This is one I have wanted to try for a while. A cherry red clear pour with a nice tan fluffy head. This brings some nice roasted notes with citrus hops and pleasant nuttiness. Bitterness from the hops and the roast is just right. A creamy feel. Some mint in the after taste. This is not a disappointment.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
22 oz. bottle- Pours very dark ruby red with a nice fluffy two finger head that takes it’s time receding. Aroma has that weird smell that I can never identify yet is very noticeable, not unappealing, just kind of odd. The taste is kind of odd too, you do get the roastiness of the malt, some nuts, but that odd aroma transfers over to the taste, I wish I knew what that was, almost like a sour note. Body could be fuller, carbonation is medium high. Overall there are better brown ales out there.

Brown pour with a big tan, 2 finger head. Aroma of a farm field full of grain. Hints of cereal and biscuit. Medium mouth. Taste is full of barley and bread. A little cereal too. Aftertaste is slightly sweet followed by the lingering grain. Pretty easy drinking.
