Thanks to a generous someone for sharing this at DLD 2011. Served in a SAVOR snifter. Pour yields an amber-colored brew with an off-white head that falls quickly without too much lacing. The nose brings some light bready malt plus a bit of light caramel sweetness in the background. Very mild hop presence. The flavor is mostly bread crust with a bit of toast as well as very mild toffee plus some caramel. Lightly candied. Medium body and good carbonation. Not bad.

Tap at Starlight Lounge in Eugene. Amber colored, light carbonation bubbles and a small white head. Smells of caramel, biscuit, bread. Tastes of bread, caramel, biscuit malt, light citrus. Average Amber ale, not something I would revisit often but refreshing enough.

Great color leads this beer to an exciting start. Not to hoppy with a well balanced malt finish. Definitely a beer that you can drink over and over again.

22 oz bottle from MvW. Thanks, Matt! Go Hawkeyes! Pours a deeper ruby copper, brownish almost, iced tea, dark and deep, with a small frothy beige head atop. Laces ok. Well hazed with fiery edges. Aromas are toffee and thicker caramel, biscuits and crystak malts. A touch of floral hopping, grass, and light dryness on the nose with a thicker mellow sweetness, toast, faint cocoa almost comes through. Sweeter overall, hops dialed back. Initial is medium bodied, a touch of raisin moving into big toffee and toast, some bready malts, biscuits, a light floral hopping with just a touch of mellower citrus. Sweeter, lighter end of medium bodied prevails as a decent sweetness sticks to the palate: dry fruit, caramel, and toast take the stage. An easy sessioner, earthiness works it’s way into the middle and backend. Finish is sweet wit just a touch of bitterness, lingering sweet toffee, toastiness, light dark fruit, and a touch of earthiness prevail. Simple but tasty, balanced, could use a touch more hopping in my opinion. Beautiful hue though, small filming head that laces a-ok

Reid (1804) - Salem,Oregon, Oregon, USA - JUL 27, 2010
Bomber from Lifesource,Salem. Good looking ale in the glass,darkish amber with a great looking light tan head. Aroma is very bready, with cereal also and a strange almost cooked meat aroma, that seems to waft about. Taste is rather bland unfortunatlly all semi-sweet malt..and little else really Palate was thin and in the end annoyingly watery for my tastes. In short i really did not enjoy this beer the Southern Oregon ’amber’ was far far better.

Bomber served in an English pint. Great looking pour for an amber ale. Hazy burnt amber with a medium tan head with good lacing. Sweet malty milk chocolate nose. Light sweet flavor. Soft delivery, medium body, and a hint of hops on the finish. Good brew.

On tap at Green Dragon Meet the Brewer event--Poured a deep hazy amber body with a medium off-white head. Bright hoppy nose with a robust, toasty malt nose. Nutty, chewy with lingering floral, piquant hops. Nice beer.
