COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Five different malts, select hop varities, and our own specially cultivated yeast create an ale which leads with hop flavors and a subtle impression of fruit (our yeasts contribution), followed by a palate pleasing malty finish.

Bomber from Burlington into snifter. Poured a murky caramel color. Smells of caramel malt. Tastes of apple, malt and caramel. Decent beer. Difficult to compare against other Vermont heavyweights.

Eructoblaster (2949) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 30, 2014
On tap at Adirondack Hotel on Long Lake. Beautiful cloudy golden/orange body with a thin white creamy head. Good malty/hoppy aroma with orange and herbal hints. Its fresh taste is slightly dominated by hoppy flavors. It carries malty, citrusy, and grainy notes. Ends with a good bittersweet finish.

On draft at a golf course in Quechee, VT. Pretty standard beer, nothing bad but nothing worth seeking out.

Metalchopz (2198) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - APR 23, 2014
Enjoyed at White Rock Pizza in Vermont. Unfiltered golden colour with a creamy white head and very good lacing. Mild hop scent with light fruity malts. Orange notes with a malty taste and decent hop in the finish. A nice unfiltered Pale Ale with a good fruity touch.

I really enjoyed this beer. Clean, crisp and smooth. Very drinkable, especially on a warm summer day.

AirForceHops (2940) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - APR 20, 2014
Draft @ Holy Grail in Epping. Amber in color, no kidding. Thin white slow receding head. Aroma is roasted grain and dirty English malts. Light fruit, citrus.

Flavor is toasted caramel malts, English influenced. Grainy body with light sweetness. Body is thin and watery. No much hop profile. I could smell fruit but canít find hops in the flavor. After 12 oz. I really didnít want anymore. Nothing makes it standout. Some lighter beer drinkers in New England love this stuff. I guess because itís very simple and easy to drink.

drsandman (188) - New York, USA - APR 14, 2014
Pours sort of a pukey orange light brown - very cloudy. Aroma is grass, hay, light malt, vague citrus. Flavor is bready malts, bitter sweet, light tang. Medium mouthfeel. Mehh

Mep3222 (395) - East Greenbush, New York, USA - MAR 28, 2014
Aroma is slight sweet malt with a hint of spice. Taste is malty and full flavored. Slight spiciness and slight sweet. Overall refreshing. Nothing crazy but a bit different of an ale with a somewhat hazy spiciness to it, but subtle and enjoyable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tonkun (756) - New Jersey, USA - MAR 7, 2014
Tap. Cloudy yellow brown pour. Like an unfiltered apple cider. Slight citrus but mostly toast. Easy to drink. Light body with slightly metallic finish. Not bad

[5279-20130427] Tap. Grainy toasted aroma. Hazy, dark orange brown body with a medium-lasting creamy white head. Bitter light lemon grainy fruit flavour. Medium body. Interesting enough. (6/3/6/3/12) 3.0

On tap in Chester. I like this. It's nothing incredible but consistent and refreshing on a hot day. Happy to support local VT beer too, even if there is a lot to live up to... ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
