3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Minimal head, pours a nice color of brown/red. Moderate carbonation. Smells of vanilla and lemon/orange. Tastes roasted, a tad nutty with a fair bit of malt. Slightly bitter. No hops. I wouldn’t say this particularly stands out or that I have any reason to get it again, but if offered it is decent and is certainly likable.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Half pint from Urban TapHouse in Cardiff (not necessarily best source). Pours a very dark brown with a thin sandy off-White head. Aroma is very grainy and smokey, low to none hop aroma. Slightly muddy aroma. Taste is smokey caramel. It’s like charcoal and crystal malts. Not an awful lot of rye coming through but a moderately spicy rye note underpinning the smoke. Smooth and drinkable but distinctly average.

Pretty good. I don’t know what rye tastes like. It works though as a general all purpose style of session beer.

On keg at the Bow Bar.
Appearance - chestnut with some orange chinks. Nice head.
Nose - brown bread, light smoke. A hint of dried fruit.
Taste - big dried fruit cake thing. Lovely smoky backdrop.
Palate - medium bodied with a creamy texture and a balanced dry finish.
Overall - reminds me of Schlenkerla Fastenbier. Delicious.

Digging this one. Mellow. Smooth. Surprisingly syrupy. Malty goodness -- recommended!

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bomber. Clear darker amber brown, lasting firm creamy tan foam. Promising aroma of smoky caramel with a whiff of spicy rye. Taste is somewhat bland, toasted sweet caramel malts, some mild rye, flat cola finish. Soft carbonation, light-medium bodied, low hopped. Disappointing. LBW (Lagerboys Be Wary)
