4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured into a clear mug, color was clear red-orange (not at all pale), lots of bubbly streams rising. Slim white head lasts well, leaves just a tad of lace. Aromas were hoppy grapefruit, yeast, bread, herbs, and alcohol. Taste was some pleasant-tasting, fresh hop herbalness above a subtle foundation of malt. Sour citrus, yeast, chocolate and a little earth were present. Mouthfeel was smooth and supple, maybe a tad thin, but pretty right for a Pale Ale. As the brewer says, this is a well-balanced middle-of-the-road ale, leaning to the hop side, but something most everyone could enjoy.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bomber( 5%): Light gold color with some signs of sediment floating around. Huge and very thick white topping of head. It seriously looks like frosting on a cupcake. Nose contains a moderate aroma level of hops and a bit of a floral feature. The drink is mildly bitter with a notice of hop, however, it isnít much. Actually a tame and average pale ale with also a nice touch of malt in it. Donít see this beer made by Moylans as much as the others.

All of these dang Moylans labels look alike to me - I almost passed this one up thinking it was their Irish Red because I couldnít remember the name and like I said, all of the dang labels look alike! Dang! I sure liked this brew - light bodied but absolutely full of flavor - sweet bready malts and juicy, very assertive hops with a long bitter finish.(geez, this seemed hoppier than the Breckenridge 471 IIPA we had earlier in the evening). This is good stuff.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Aroma was of the floral varity. Appearance cloudy orange with a thick tan head. Left plenty of lacing on the glass. Head stayed on top of beer till the end. Citrus hop flavor and it was cool and crisp on the palate. I would of thought I was drinking an IPA not a pale ale. Great beer.
