650ml bomber pours amber in color with a finger of white head that leaves some decent lacing on the glass. Aroma is mild with caramel and dark fruits with a hint of hops. Taste is caramel with dark fruits and a light hoppy bitterness. Overall, a decent amber ale which is recommended for a tasting.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bomber from Hayduke. We enjoyed it together via facebook chat. This Red Ale poured tea brown and was hazy with a decent beige head. A gentle aroma of soft malts and even softer hops. The first sip brings a nice hop bite that seems to hint at a bigger one. However, that quickly softens. The hops remain forward in the start and offer mild bitterness. The finish is akin to an English Bitter with some light fruit. This was not a beer that was going to blow anyone over but it was pleasant and understated.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle: Deep amber, on the reddish side, large sudsy white head, spotty lacing. Soft grainy nose, a little toasted malt, very minor hop aspect. Moreso grainy on the tongue, moderate malts, very little bitterness. Not thin, but its bordering on moderate to thin. Nothing wrong with this beer, but pretty middle of the road type of Amber Ale. Neither too hoppy or super malty. Mild example that is fairly average. Decent, but nothing to write home about.   Has a slight Vienna character about it at least, which I like.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bomber from Harry & Davids in Medford, OR. Pours very ruddy copper with a creamy/bubbly beige head. Aroma of rather roasted malt with a hint of what I hope is not diacetyl. Flavor says it’s not diacetyl. This is pretty malty, ok it’s an amber, and the hop is bitter and balancing, but I can’t pin it down. Obviously not a dry hop thing going here. It’s an amber; it’s malty. It has some bitter. I think amber lovers will like it.
