3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
The 22 oz bottle that I purchased was slightly different - it was labeled "First Growth Single Malt Ale." Pours pale cloudy gold with large white head. Aroma of bread. Although there is a bitterness there, it is a very mild hops flavor, almost more of a spring bock due to the balance with the malt. Medium body, easy to drink. Very effervescent.

Aroma is fresh clove, yeast, lemon grass and light sweet malts. Taste is a sweet light fresh maltiness with an immediate tartiness the finishes with a slight bitterness but not overpowering. Appearance is a hazy gold with a fluffy pearl head that retains well.

Bottle. Sour milk, orange malt and orange peel aroma. Hazy golden yellow with small head. Sweet orange malt and moderately bitter orange peel flavor. Okay but boring.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
"A touch fruity and dense. Not a whole lot goin on overall. Some bitterness in the finish is the only hint at complexity. Not a bad brew, but very one dimensional.

Bomber. Have had this way too long. Grainy malt aroma. Some stale hops. Taste is semi-sweet malt - this is just okay.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Rated on 6-23-2010 (Bottle at Dash-In in Fort Wayne, IN) This beer pours a small smooth off-white head that mostly diminishes, golden body, fast rising carbonation, and a fair amount of lacing. The aroma is malty, yeasty and hops. The tastes is malty, barley and hops. The palate is tingly and this beer is medium bodied. Overall, the hops come through as the beer warms up. It is not a bad beer, but overpriced at $9.
