Nutty and alcoholic smelling. Clear amber with very thin head. Syrupy bitter followed by a nutty bitter. The bitter keeps on well after the sip.

Bomber from Total Wine in Folsom, CA. Pours hazy copper/amber with a slight foamy beige head. Roasty malt aroma. Med body. Flavor is fruity hop over roasty malt. I’ll agree it fits the style. Nice to drink.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the brewery. Pours one finger of head on a clear straw colored body.
The aroma is like a candy factory and pine trees. Interesting, but nice.
The taste is mostly a moderately dry bitter flavor. Good balance and straightforward.
The texture is crisp with moderate carbonation.
Overall a solid ESB.

Copper orange in color... Aroma of bready malts, light hops... Flavor of biscuity malts, English hops, lingers long on the palate... Solid, well done
