Don’t see too many colleges getting beers named after them. Nice hearty ale. I would hesitate to call it a pale. More ESB to me. Has a nice sharp malt character. And I get cinnamon notes as well.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bomber from Ledgers. Pours light golden amber with a creamy/foamy white head. Aroma of fairly roasted malt with hop that seems strongly celeriac. Med body. Flavor is rather light. Roast malt with hop that doesn’t live up to the strength of the aroma. Arguably floral/fruit/veg. Not unattractive, just - well it would probably fit a session ale. Gets quite earthy in the finish. Certainly drinkable.
