22 oz. Bottle:Murky pond water brown with no head. Aroma of ripe apples ready to be made into cider and alcohol. The taste is bitter cough medicine and apple cider without the sweetness. The aftertaste seems to have bitter cardboard mixed with raisins - not bad. I kind of liked this guy even though the average score is not that high. Thanks Indiana_Red for sharing the fruit of your trip the Mecca Northwest!

Blind tasting. Light brown w/ good head. Big chunks in glass....Big grapefruit aroma and taste. More balanced than I expected from the aroma. Bitter hops at the end. Good thickness. Really enjoyed this one...funny that all 3 of us that rated it blind seemed to enjoy it, while most other ratings on here are pretty low.

Mildly funky caramel apple aroma. Hazy chestnut amber in color with little head. Kind of a nice sipper with flavors of caramel malts, honey like sweetness, and a zing of hops at the finish. Overall, tough to finish the bomber. Thank Andre.

Bomber. Pours a coppery amber color with a small amount of sudsy off-white head. In the nose, thereís hints of brown sugar, raisins, figs and cinnamon bread. The flavor starts out with lots of caramel, toffee, butterscotch and dried apricot notes supported by a toasted malt backbone. Just a tiny bit of a sweet citrus hops presence in the background. The body is adequately carbonated with a dry, sugary finish. In the end, itís a little too sweet and one-dimensional.
