5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
poured a nice golden copper color with good carbonation. The head was white, creamy, and not very overwhelming - with a clear clarity. The smell hits first with hops, but the caramel presence of the malt quickly overtook the citrus floral notes of the hops. The hops did provide an orange citrus presence with some earthiness. The caramel malt also had a buttery/nuttiness to it.

Bomber from Belmont Station / March visit. Pours a foggy orange with moderate head and nice lacing...probably due to my expert pour! A moderate hop bite in initial taste...a dry middle taste...not bad; not great....a nice sipping summer beer...

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
I will agree with the label. This is a very well done pale. Malty, bread aroma with some citrus. The flavor has a bit of caramel, some bread and a peppery bitterness. The finish is dry and refreshing.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Location: 22 oz bottle from Buy Rite, 4/1/12
Aroma: The nose is fairly light, with some hints of lemon, grapefruit, caramel, and a little sugar
Appearance: Pours a cloudy golden-orange color with an off-white head and light-medium lacing
Flavor: The taste is lightly sweet, it has some malty hints and a medium-plus hop bitterness to the finish
Palate: The body is medium, with a soft-to-average carbonation, a slight creaminess, and a dry mouthfeel
I actually found this one to be a pretty interesting offering. From the nose I wasn’t really expecting anything too exciting, but the taste was pretty solid. It has a nice dry and hoppy presence, and I found it to be pretty drinkable as well.
