3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bomber from Spirits Manahawkin. Poured an okay looking deep amber, almost reddish, with a smaller quickly fading tight foamy off white head. Aroma/flavor is all grains. Notes of pale malts, corn, white grape skin, dough and a touch of nut shell. Palate is big and slightly harsh, syrupy light carbonation and a lingering finish. Meh, not my favorite from Slumbrew by any means.

Bomber. Pour is a murky golden amber with a vigorous off white head that diminishes to to thin wispy bubbles around the glass. Smell is sweet with caramel and pale malt with a touch of hops and vanilla. Taste is honey and caramel with a bitter hop finish and creamy mouthfeel. Not bad.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bread, biscuits, fruit, and a little corn in the aroma. Flavor is malty, fruity, and sweet. Finish is spicy, lightly bitter and fruity. I’m becoming a fan of this brewery--if you’re in the mood for something a little different, this is a really good choice.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Location: 22 oz bottle from Buy Rite, 9/1/13
Aroma: Th one has a nice doughy and malty nose, yeasty, plenty of spice, and some grassy notes
Appearance: It pours a clear caramel-orange color with a small white head and average lace
Flavor: The taste mildly sweet, yeasty and doughy, with a mild bitterness, and a spicy finish
Palate: It is medium bodied with a rather tingly feel and a bit of boozy heat on the finish
This is a pretty nice beer. There’s definitely a dearth of quality cream ales on the market. This one helps fill that void, but I’d like to see more breweries tackle this style.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bomber. An orange amber beer that is hazed and sports a golden tinted two finger head. A lot of carbonation floating up from the bottom of the Spiegelau glass. A pleasant yeasty fruit aroma with soft malts and tangerine. A mild bitterness that settles in the back of the throat in the start. Noble hops? Nice malts are more complex than in the aroma and the fruit is softer. It tastes a little hot with the alcohol coming through.

Haven’t had many cream ales but becoming a favorite. This poured an orange/yellow, with white head. Medium bodied with smooth malt and a decent hop finish. Suprising that it’s 7.2 abv, goes down easy,

3.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
I haven’t had many Cream Ales in recent years (Genesee Cream Ale years ago) but thoroughly enjoyed this one. Has some noticeable but not excessive sweetness with a very smooth mouth feel. At over 7% it’s definitely full-bodied yet not heavy with the alcohol not highly notable. Wish Slumbrew would put this ale in a 12 oz. bottle when or if they go beyond marketing only in 22’s.

Thick orange pour. White head. Apricot
Crazy hoppy. I guess. Pretty fucked up. Back dreck.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Drank in tall pilsner glass poured from 220z bottle. Aroma - roasted earthy smell. Appearance - golden auburn with avg froth and carbonation. Taste - caramel and hazelnut. Palate - get some burnt caramel taste. Overall - tastes like an upgrade to a red or amber beer. A little more flavor but still not my favorite. Really good for the style though

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Nice and smooth. Vibrant deep orange pour. Complex taste notes in a solid malty base: cream, some citrus (orange?) sweetness, and a bit of hoppy kickness. Perhaps a toffee note or two as well. Creamy mouthfeel and lingering notes. Very enjoyable.
