3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bomber from Belmont Station. Medium red-amber color with a small, off-white head. Fruity caramel, sweet malt, lightly floral and peach fruity aroma. Rich and malty flavor with some toasty malt, fruity caramel, some strawberry, peach, and light hops and bitterness. Medium bodied. Interesting fruity notes and not too sweet despite being squarely malty in balance. Good stuff.

[3003-20100628] Tap. Hint of cooked peas in the aroma. Clear, amber brown body with a quick foamy white head. Mild caramel sweet malt flavour has a toffee finish. Medium body. Interesting enough, a little boozy.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
2010-06-28. Crisp dark amber body with a modest beige head and lace. 3+ Flavour is pleasantly sweet malt with toasty accents, light balancing bitterness, lingering toasty caramel in the finish. Aroma of toasty malt, touches of caramel. 7+ Smooth average palate is nice but a touch light for the beer in my opinion. Pretty decent. Sampler at the brewpub, Pacific City.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle... Poured clear amber with a moderate sized head that faded quickly. Big malty aroma. A solid representation of the style with dark, caramel-toffee, toasted malts, and a tiny bit of hops to add an earthy leafiness. Also, I think the yeast created some nice tea-like and fruity, juice tones.
