A pretty good pale ale that works with spicy foods and makes the belly happy. If at the brewpub in Watkins Glen I suggest have 2 of these with the fried jalepaenos.

probstblueribbon (3160) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 14, 2015
Bomber from BOTW (Rochester), served at cellar temperature in a tulip glass.

App.: Clear copper with a tight light-tan head. Aroma: Quite malty, oddly brothy, Vienna/Munich melanoidin, caramel, a light tangy note, sort of vinous, maybe a little grapefruit...not much hop aroma. Palate: Medium+ body, full, creamy carbonation. Flav.: Definitely infected, has a barfy acidic note, still quite malty; dry with unpleasant acidity and a mildly barfy, malty finish.

Bad dog!

The body is slightly hazy and has a nice medium amber color with some visible carbonation. There is a small head which hangs on for a while before fading to a light ring of foam. On the way down the glass it does leave some thin lace rings. In the nose I pick up mild mix of sweet malt and American hops. On the tongue there is a pleasant balance of bready and lightly caramely malt with mellow citrus and leafy hops. It has a medium body and finishes with a nice quick hop fade which sets you up for another sip. The texture is easy drinking and nicely carbonated.

pinkie (470) - New York, USA - APR 14, 2014
Pours hazy and orange with a fat head of khaki colored foam that lasted well and left a ring. Nose is bright sweet orange and some tart citrus. Malt pokes it head out for a sideways glance of it’s sweetness. Hops are floral and this smells very inviting. Taste is plentiful with citrus, both sweet and tart. The malt is shy but shows us a little leg in the drink and becomes a bit nutty as the beer warms. There is a slight metallic undertaste that does detract in my opinion. I would have scored this higher if it did not have that. There is no freshness date on the bottle. Spritzy carbonation for a light body and mouthfeel. The finish is juicy and tart and only slightly bitter. I really liked this despite that one flaw. I would try it again.

kramer (5228) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 13, 2014
Tap. Pours a slightly hazy copper body with a nice tight bubbled creamy off-white head. The nose is fairly light on the hops, some toasted and caramel malt, and a little bit of citrus. The flavor is nicely bitter with a minimal sweetness from the malt. Maybe a touch thin, but very drinkable. Light lingering bitterness on the back end. Mouthfeel is light to medium bodied with soft fizzy carbonation. Overall, pretty well balanced and easy drinking. Nothing exciting maybe, but a solid beer.

Fine, whatever, another dry bitter aggressive American pale ale. I guess you have to make one...

BillKismet (3407) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUL 27, 2012
Gorgeous dark peach body with a peaches and cream top. Salty, breezy, lightly hopped nose. The body evinces mild fruity hoppyness with a slight sawdust undercurrent. Well-blended, multi-grain backbone. Simple, refreshing and pleasing.

Pours a light orange. Not much aroma to speak of. Mild hops taste. Phenolic. Not great.
