3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a slightly hazed burnt umber into the glass, with a fully diminished head that leaves trace lace. Nice dank basement aromas with some doughy notes and grains in there. Some pale malts and medium bitters in the mouth. Underwhelming in the complexity department. The mouthfeel is light with a grainy finish. Ok for the rate, I guess.

Draft at the brewery. Rather bland but pleasant. The color of a red-haired man’s beard. Small but attractive head. Smells great!

22 ounce bottle shared, that probably came from Bruisin Ales. Dark amber with caramel and sugar. Very tasty and a top notch amber.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
22 oz bottle courtesy of Suttree. Fall 2009 on label. Pour is a slight hazed orange, copper and brown with a nicely formed 2 inch off white head. The head falls slowly and loosely with some lacing. Aroma of dusty grain malt with some cereal / caramel sweetness. Not much else, a bit faint. Taste is the sweet caramel and nutty malt followed by some of the dustiness of the nose, and not too much past that. Palate is thin, almost watery with low to medium carbonation. Finish is clean and brief. Overall a tad on the dull side, but constructed well enough and easy to drink. Thanks for sending this my way Phil.

Amber pour with creamy white head and lace. Light caramel malt aroma with a bread chaser. Light caramel malt, toast, and a very light bitter. Just thin but very drinkable.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bomber. Pours a slighty cloudy amber with a really nice looking head. The aroma has hints of biscuits, toffee, and copper. It’s a bit metallic, but not overwhelming. What I really liked about this beer is the little chocolate note buried in the biscuity malt flavor. The hops are low. This was a decent drinking amber ale.

Draft at the brew pub, but also picked up a bottle at Bruisin’ which I am enjoying now. Malty and clean with very little bitterness. A good drink, but not exactly a notable one.
