Poured a brown amber color. The initial malty taste faded fast to a hoppy bitterness. Nice aroma, a good balance between malt and hops.

UPDATED: SEP 5, 2005 Re-rate. Decent beer. Malty at first then a little hoppy later. Some roastinesss. That’s about all I can come up with. This one didn’t do much for me. Won’t be drinking it again.

2.8 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Amber colored, partly cloudy, thick head. Malty aroma, but a hint of sweaty feet. First taste was malty, then sweet, and finished with a little bitter hops. Very creamy and thick feeling

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
08.29.04 bomber. Lightly hazed reddish golden pour, large but dissipating head with mucho lace. Aroma is sweet, lightish fruit like ripe plum, whole grain bread with butter. Flavor is not that exciting, rather level, but subsantial enough to be a nice match with salty snacks. Body is quite thick, almost a syrupy feel, with a surprisingly quick and sharp finish for the style...certainly a PNW influence. Very faint acidity comes through more as a ripe grain fruitiness. Pretty good stuff, I think it reminds me somehow of altbier. Definitely not a session beer, but a nice diversion. Thanks Bunkypop.

A very good ale! Nice reddish copper color, a nice balance of hoppiness and maltiness, which makes it pleasant to drink. I recommend it!
