3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bomber from Made in Oregon. Pours dark copper with a creamy off-white head. Aroma of warm toasted malt. Med body more or less. Flavor is a touch of chocolate, with toast malt and enough hop to taste. Maybe carob rather than chocolate. Finish is fairly dry, and it’s bitter enough for 30 IBUs. Certainly drinkable.

22. Pours a clear very dark brown. Loose tan head. Big sweet malty molasses nose. Creamy medium body with subdued carb. Molasses toast and caramel on the mid palate, along with a bit more tanginess than it really needs. Tangy sweet caramel finish.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle:   Deep dirty caramel, a little brownish, moderate sudsy off-white head, spotty lacing.   Hefty grainy malt like aroma.   Slightly earthy.   I can already tell its not my style.   Has an organic like
flair when I take my first sip, earthy, soily, with the maltiness taking a backseat.   Mild sweetness, make that slight sweetness.   Needs more caramel malt like sweetness to counteract the earthy/soily graininess.   As it
warms the earthy/soily aspect becomes more prominant, further pushing me away.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate to full.   Certainly feels heavy enough, not thin, but just isnt my type of maltiness.   Having Mac & Jacks
African Amber made only a few miles away has me spoiled.   This one is okay, but the graininess of the earthen/soil like malts just makes me want to put it down.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A: The beer pours an amber color with a finger of off-white head.
S: There’s a nice perfume and floral hop aroma to this. Behind that, there is sweet toffee and caramel malt. A bit of toasted bread, some hints of citrus peel, too.
T: The beer is mostly sweet with a good amount of toffee and toasted malt/bread flavor. A nice bit of perfumey hops, some good floral notes, and just a mild citrus flavor. A decent hop bitterness to the beer as well.
M: Medium bodied with medium carbonation.
O: Pretty standard red ale, but good flavors and easy to put down a glass or two of.
