Bomber from Chase Street Market in Plymouth, NH. Rated from the bottom of the bottle. Pours out a murky golden amber. Low carbonation. Honey-spice aromas and flavors. First glass was overly sweet. Second glass is a bit better, more balance. Yeasty finish. This does nothing for me.

22 oz bottle. Pours a thick looking amber/gold with a 1/2" off white head. Small amount of lace. Malty, herbal aroma with a touch of rye. More hints of rye in the flavor as well as some light floral hop bitterness. Palate is towards the heavy side with low carbonation. Overall, I thought this was a very nice brew and will look for it again.

UPDATED: OCT 18, 2012 So as I sit here and finish my glass I am reluctant to leave this review as is. In all honestly there is really nothing wrong with this beer, itís just not what I was expecting. Sweet and English inspired I guess in that context itís an all right brew.

Pours a slightly hazy deep golden copper color with a good sized white head that is full of glass covering stickage. The aroma is not at all what I was expecting. Thereís a candy like sweetness along side a spicy tartness and a fair dose of ethanol. Pale ale is in the title I was hoping for some hop aroma. Based on the flavor Iím guessing the inspiration was English. Malty sweet fruity and sugary flavor, with a hint of earthy hops, spicy rye and again some alcohol. Medium body with a moderate level of carbonation and a sweet almost syrupy mouthfeel. Too sweet, too little rye, too little hop presence, too much alcohol. This beer is a mess.

Paid $7.50 for a 22 oz. bottle @ Bertís. Used a lager glass. Deeper Amber color brown highlights. Good retention. Nose is caramel malt and light grain. Mild bitterness through-out the sip. Rye is an accent to the beer rather than being a main player. The malt, hops and rye play well together. I was hoping for an IPA when I bought thisÖ not what I was expecting. No flaws. For the APA style itís on the lighter side of medium body and noticeable grain. Texture has a tingle on the tongue from Co2 and the lightly spicy Rye. Very mild bitterness with a short finish.

Notes only. Bottle. Malty, Rye, but very light. Some bitterness/citrus in the finish. A bit on the watery end for this style, but still good.

Pours a one finger cream head that fades quickly to a thin layer leaving no lace. Cloudy amber/brown color. Light-medium carbonation and medium bodied. Light hoppy nose, flavor is grainy with some hoppy bitterness, dry finish. $7.95 for a 22oz bottle from Bertís Better Beers Hooksett, NH.

From the 22 fl. oz. bottle. It pours a hazy, reddish-amber with a smallish head and limited lacing. Some may think "Rye PA" equals IPA but there is little in the way of hops in the aroma. On the nose there is a lot of grain and sweet caramel malts. The body is about medium and creamy. The taste is full of grainy rye-like grass and an interesting dry hop bite at the end. Refreshing in its own way.
