3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle via a trade with blutt59. Pours with a notably viscous quality. Orange body, clear, with a small bone hued head. Aromas up front are hoppy: floral, earthy, a hint of citrus. Malt quality is bready, nutty, and biscuity. Light sulfur/lager yeast notes. Flavors are bready, biscuity, malty and bitter (I cannot tell if there is a malt astringency as well causing some of the bitterness). A bit of an herbal note. Sweet up front but dries out towards the finish. Surprisingly viscous body. Medium to light bubbles.

I think this one is underrated. It is very close to being a malty masterpiece. Well balanced taste of malts, rye and hops. Much better than expected.

bomber. Pours a clear amber with an off-white head. Nose is nutty, grainy and boring. Taste is malty and grainy. Mouthfeel is medium. This was not horrible, but not a good pilsner.

6/24/11. Bomber courtesy Cavie! Clear piss colored golden pour with a very small white head that fades instantly. Mild floral aroma with some grain in there. Slightly sweet flavor with a nice bitter punch and a big hint of chocolate. Not bad.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
What’s not to like. Great name; great label; great style; sent by a great guy - bomber from ericandersnavy. Pours amber with a creamy off-white head. Aroma is bready with some spicy florality. Flavor is peppery/bready with some herbal/noble hop. It’s quite nice. Good body, intriguing flavor, finishing towards astringently bitter. I’d like to see them do a 10 single hop series, if that wouldn’t lose the pepper spice. I like this.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours an average cheddar orange with a malted Saaz aroma and roasted grapefruit. Flavor is malty nuts with a Saaz/grapefruit syrup. Slight strawberry in the finish. Average mouthfeel. From what I hear, the current version of this beer is a shadow of its former self. Shame.

Bomber courtesy of ericandersnavy. Pours copper with a thin white head. Smells floral with some noble hops, grass, hay. Tastes of pepper, perfumy and floral with a dry pilsner malt finish. Well balanced and enjoyable.
