Dark copper pour, one finger head and nice lacing. Lots of toasted caramel like malt, grainy sweet with a very mild hop finish, but enough to make it well balanced. Rich, full, smooth mouthfeel...a delightful feel on the tongue. Another solid beer from my favorite place on earth.

Bomber- PPRBSG 09. Pours a deep copper light amber with a thin lasting head. Aroma is sharp cheesy hairy earthy aroma- floral hops, toasted sharp crystal malts, molasses sweetness. Flavor is sweet caramel, toffee, with floral hops, herbs, grass and earth, a bit metallic as well, along with some mineral bitterness in the end- Not bad.

Bottle at PilsnerPeter’s Ratebeer Spring Gathering. Deep amber pour. The aroma is nutty and lightly sweet. There is a bit of earthy sweetness with a bit of light spice. Flavour is a little bit watery but there is a nice light sweetness and a bit of bitterness. There is a light astringency, but it’s not bad.

Bottle at PPRBSG09. Pours a clear brown with a small head. Aroma is rich and malty with some diacetyl. Flavor is sweet and bland--not much going on here really. Not bad, not good, just a boring beer.

I was rooting for this one. Wasn’t a fan though. Metallic bitterness and almost rotten grain taste. Some brown sugar sweetness and not much else.
