3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
22 oz bottle. Clear amber colour with a medium white head. Caramel and biscuit aroma. Sweet biscuity, slightly nutty flavours with yeastiness providing for a drier finish. Medium body. An above average amber ale with inspirations from Belgium and Germany.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bomber, spring 2006. Pour was a clear, medium caramelly-amber with a tall rocky white head. Quite a bit of lacing followed it down. Nose was of toasty caramel and biscuits with a woodsy/floral hop backing... came across as more of a marzen. Flavor was rather non-descript... with some toasty bread and caramel maltage and a dose of floral hops... nothing exciting, and only moderately enjoyable. Palate was on the lighter side with moderate bitterness. Not bad.
Welcome to Chicagoland, NBB... please bring Folie!

On tap around Boulder. Beer that makes me smile all over. Not breaking any world records for flavour but as good a malt biscuit flavour as I can find on tap, perfect subtle hop balance, finish that makes you order another.

What a great beer. If I could have this in a six-pack, instead of a $3 22 oz. bottle, I’d buy it every week. Not much aroma, looks carmelly but not interesting, medium-light bodied palate, but it TASTES great! It’s all about the malts for this beer. I tasted very little hops, and didn’t mind. Think of the most pleasant, but not extreme, fresh bread you’ve had, and you’re close to imagining what this beer tastes like. It’s not extreme in any way, but -- seriously -- perfect for those times you just want a beer after work, or a beer that will compliment rather than take over a meal. FYI, I had this with liver sausage once, and it was no match for the sausage, so save this for pizza and sandwiches and drinking on the porch in warm weather or with good friends inside in cold Chicago weather.

Bomber. Golden orange pour with thick creamy head that clings to glass. First smell is orange. Smells doughy, dusty, and dry with good amounts of yeast. Roasty taste of biscuits with a crispy bacon flavor. Subtle pine hops finishes the well balanced profile. As it warms, more meaty and apple flavors dominate and bring along a yeasty quality. Palate is slightly dry with a medium body. No alcohol presence in any part of the beer. Nice drinker.
