Golden amber colour. Fruity, caramelly, fairly well-balanced amber. Nothing special, but if you like ambers, you’ll probably like this.

Beershine (5196) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - OCT 10, 2011
Draft @ brewpub. Coppery color. Nice malty aroma. Nutty caramel and toffee malt flavors are sweet, mild, and malt sugary. Boring but ok.

avalancher34 (58) - Lexington, Kentucky, USA - SEP 2, 2010
On tap at the SLV Brewing company. This beer looks better than it tastes. Pours crystal sparkling bronze, with a smidgen of a head. I thought I was in for a treat, but after one sip I realized it’s a mediocre amber. There’s just not much flavor going on here. Not very complex, not very refreshing. I’ve had it multiple times, served slightly warm, which I found different for the style. Hell, Killians Irish Red has more flavor than this!

Ratman197 (9061) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - JAN 28, 2010
Bomber poured a clear reddish amber with a lingering ring of ivory foam. Aromas of carmel, bread and fruittiness. Palate was light bodied and cridp with a dry finish. Flavors of carmel, earthiness and light fruittiness with a crisp dry chalky finish.

drjay44 (2489) - Salida, Colorado, USA - NOV 16, 2009
Sampler at the brewery. Pours a thin head of short duration, with a bit of lacing, over a light amber (SRM 8) clear body....nose has light caramel and biscuit.....taste is slightly sweet to start then went to mild hop bitterness, finishing dry.....mouth feel is medium, carbonation low. A mild Amber overall.

Bomber from a liquor store in Alamosa. Opens with a barely audible pffft. Brownish orange with tiny amounts of head. Aroma of stale bread, yeast, light roast. Light, toasty malt flavor, dark breads, fairly pleasant. More breadiness, moderately hoppy finish. Very low carbonation.
