Bomber from Bestway. Pours a hazy amber color with a thin frothy tan head. Decent head retention. Aroma of caramel and earthy notes. The taste is pale caramel malts, floral hops. Maybe a little diacetyl. Medium bodied.

Bomber. Cloudy bronze with a small, permanent white head. Faint malty nose. Crisply carbonated throughout the clean, fresh caramel base, leading into a nice fresh finish. An excellent palate cleanser, or a solid session brew.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 16/20
22 oz. bottle. Slightly hazy gold, with a medium, frothy, off-white head. Apples, hay, strong resin, and some pine. Earthy notes, and some musty yeastiness. Mellow sweetness, with a light bitterness. Medium body, grainy, malty, and slick. Overall, this is a light and easy-drinking beer, but nicely complex and tasty.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a soft pale strawberry blonde with a thin white head. Nose is vegetal and bready upfront with some diacetyl and bread dough. Lightly fruity. Soft bready notes in the flavor. Some off notes upfront. Lightly vegetal with a touch of diacetyl. Grassy on the back of the mouth with an earthy malt profile. Light medium body with a zesty bitterness. Cool to see a local company doing this style.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Tap at beer study. Hazy orange with thin white lace, no sticky. Nose is overrun with diacetyl, as is the flavor, sadly. Sweet and buttery. Makes me a sad panda.
