Bomber. Pours a turbid light brownish color, looks like sink backup. Light carbonation and no head to speak of (I actually like the murkiness, but took points off for headless-ness). Nose is kinda pissy and wet cardboard, with some malt and hops in there. Mouth is mildly bitter and a hint of tang, some toffee and malt, a hint of soot (?) and slightly diacetyl butterscotchy on the tail end. A good Bitter, but not great.

1st rating! Bomber bottle served in an Imperial Pint Glass: Pours a deep amber hue with a lasting rocky head and good lace. The aroma has notes of toffee, crystal, butterscotch, herbal hops, and some earthiness. The taste is malty but there is a good amount of both classic and PNW styled hop bitterness for support. Slightly metallic and minerally dry finish. Some Diacetyl comes through as it warms but overly distracting. The mouth feel is smooth yet somewhat aggressive, copper penny finish. Overall a drinkable brew that is akin to a malty IPA than an ESB.
