3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bomber bought at Super 1 in CDA, ID. Pours slightly hazy copper with a medium collapsing beige head; leaves a ring of ugly big-bubbly foam. Aroma consists of dough, toasted bread, dark fruits, caramel. Taste is lightly sweet before a nice hoppy bitterness sets in and lingers there long after the swallow. It’s earthy, grassy, caramelly. Carbonation is medium to high, body is medium. Good.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
The nose is all yeast. Plenty of a fruit and a little sulphur. Slick, eggy, hints of copper and caramel. One of the worst I’ve had from them.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Thin head on a clear, copper colored body.
The aroma is grainy and honey, but quite bold for a lager.
The taste has a building bitterness that is balanced with a mild sweetness. The finish is a dry bitterness and a little bready.
Low carbonation and medium body.
A really enjoyable beer and quite drinkable.
