Bottle: Aroma is fruity and malty with a definite caramel smell. I don’t mean to copy the commercial description but pours a hazy "deep honey." That’s about as perfect as you can describe the color. Small off-white head with a little retention. Initial taste is malty with caramel but is a little weak. Some nut flavors as well. The most dominate flavors come in the mostly hoppy and lightly sweet finish. Moderate bitter aftertaste.

Bomber bottle served at fridge temps.Amber color,typical one finger head.Aroma was mild toffee with a hint of malt. Slightly bitter with an odd caramally taste and dryish finish. Ok but I like the bottle art better.Probably won’t buy again.There are sooo many mid level beers as good or better than this,IMO.

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.
