3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Thin light tan head of fine bubbles with light carbonation. Huge pine aroma that wafts away rather quickly then leaves a sweet malty aroma with some straw and herbs. Color is a hazy golden orange. Decent bitterness up front and late swallow with a decent malt backbone in between. Some dry roasted peanuts and more hebs and flowers. Quite dry and puckering at the finish. Rather one dimensional and lacks any kind of complexity but still a decent pale with quite the bitter kick.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bomber. Clear chestnut color with a tall khaki head. Aroma of lemon zest and chemicals. Metallic taste overwhelmed some attempts for a little citrusy hops to fight through. Hints of toffee and burnt chocolate as well. Watery. Quick, mildly bitter and astringent finish. I wanted to find something to like about this beer but it just wouldn’t let me.

This is a pretty tasty beer, even though the aroma is a bit malt heavy. A bit of grit and bitterness, but not overly done. Pretty tasty stuff.
