2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear amber color. Aroma consists malt, with honey, hops, and a little citrus in the undertones. Taste is mostly of malts. There are a little bit of hops and citrus in the back end. Has a nice and smooth aftertaste. Not too bad of a brew. I’d consider this more of a session beer.

Bomber from Barrios’ Massechussetts Trip Tasting. Sweet honey aroma and flavor. Good for the style, but I just don’t like this style I think.
