COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This beer is Sloop Brewingís flagship beer. The ingredients are imported from Europe and blended together to create a truly unique and palatable beer. It is light in body, with a hint of hop flavor and stands at 4.8% abv. Olde World Pale Ale pours with a golden straw color, topped by a rocky white head. The complex malt flavor comes from a variety of bready, European grain. The Noble European hop flavors lend a slightly spicy finish to the beer. The clean ale yeast allows your palate to correctly identify all of these complex flavors.

Aroma with some light hops, a bit of soap, dank. A bit of fruit comes through as it warms. light bitterness, not bad.

Crystal clear golden coloured body with a honey glow, a ridiculously thick five centimetre tall pure white head and literally millions of small bubbles rising from the bottom. Aroma of alcohol, yeast, brett (crazy), must, white grapes, sugar and some light earthy notes - interestingly enough, not much hops at all. Light-bodied; Sharp yeast and earthy flavour with some light sugars from fruit, a bit of musty and cardboard flavours and that hint of brettynomics trying to come through. Aftertaste shows some complexity with a bit of yeast and earthy malt, a little sweetness and a very herbal and grassy finish. Overall, a light but interesting beer with some good flavours and quite the complexity for the style. I sampled this 65 cL bottle purchased from Half Time in Poughkeepsie, New York on 26-December-2012 for US$5.99 sampled at home in Washington on 27-July-2013.

bottle, from Halftime Beverage. ok aroma, sweet, cardboard, toasted grain. Clean golden orange color, ok head and lace. sweet flavor. Medium body, smooth mouthfeel, crisp bitter finish. Meh, I seem to have gotten the lesser one I see some others got, just nothing to grab my attention....

First dissapointing beer by Sloop. Aroma was a bit of cardboard, grains, cheese, and grass. Taste was more of the same with a huge toasty grainyness. Needs more balance away from sweet toasted malts.

bhensonb (11531) - Woodland, California, USA - DEC 2, 2012
Bomber from Half Time. Pours light amber/gold with a creamy white head. Aroma is very lightly roasted malt with some spice. Med + body til the carb froths away. Flavor is bready, maybe nutty, with some grassy/earthy/herbal/spicy. Sort of renders the mouth earthy. Not like mushroom tho. Pretty interesting flavor. Finishes dry and grassy/earthy/herbal/spicy. :)

Bottle at Paulís. Thanks to J #ís for introducing us to a new local brewery! Clear gold pour. Aroma is vegetal, most strongly of asparagus. Flavor is thankfully not vegetal. Sharp pine sting. Woops; the asparagus sneaks up again at the finish. Hmm...

UPDATED: JUL 22, 2012 Bottle that I took to a tasting at Paulís. Pours golden with a medium sized white head. Asparagus and other vegetal aromas right away, but moves into a touch of hoppy dusty musk and a bit of toast. Medium bodied, sweet caramel and a bit of malt and a touch of cereal. Sweet and malty, a touch of hops, slow malt and toast on the finish.

update based on a second bottle. vegetal aromas are much less apparent and thereís a nice tropical fruit note as well.sweet into the middle. smooth and easy drinking.
