3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
650ml bottle listed at 6.25% ABV pours a pale amber color with a small white head and a few spots of lacing. Aroma is light toasted malts and some spices. Taste is a caramel malty sweetness and some spices with a moderate hoppy bitterness in the finish. Light to medium body and some nice carbonation provide a nice feeling on the palate. This is a pretty decent beer.

I’m not a lager enthusiast, so my rating is questionable. It’s clean and crisp, not hoppy, not bitter, not sweet, not complex. Works as a refreshing beer.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bomber from Malt & Vine. Pours amber with a creamy off-white head. Aromas of roast caramel (mild) and spicy noble hop. Med body. Mod carb. Flavor is mostly sweet light roast malt, but there’s a bit of grassy/spicy hop. But this stuff definitely tends towards the sweet side. Glad it’s not sweeter than it is.

Bready notes, malt base, fruity nose, and clean as can be. Bright amber medium body, and very drinkable. I will definitely get this again next year. Tasted from the bottle @ 55F.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 12/20
This is a really lovely malt driven amber lager. very smooth with a great noble hop character that balances out the malt very nicely. This is definately the kind of lager I like to drink, crisp, refreshing yet with some great malt character.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a clear orange color with a lot of effervense along the side of the glass. No lasting head to speak of. Aroma is faintly hop bitters with an undercurrent of biscuits. Taste is sweet malt, light caramel touch. Palate is creamy with just a thin bitter aftertaste.

22. Pours a crystal clear medium bronze with a loose, thin, sudsy grayish head. Mild sweet, somewhat cloying nose of chestnuts and old salami. Medium creamy body, goes a bit watery in spots but in a refreshing way. Nuts, caramel, biscuit, and oranges on the mid-palate. Mild orangey finish. Drinkable.
