Bomber from Whole Foods Market Columbus/Dublin, OH. Pours a clear amber color with a medium sized fizzy brown head that fades quickly. Aroma of leafy hops and toffeeish malts. The taste is toffee malts, toasted malts, spicy hops. Medium-full bodied. Well balanced. Another nice one from Brew Kettle.

Dogbrick (10409) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - SEP 15, 2006
Sample at the brewpub: Clear red-amber color with a medium thin off-white head. Thin rings of lacing. Sweet malt and caramel in the nose. Medium body with a sweet character that has some bitterness around the edges. Leans toward malt over hops as far as the flavor goes. The finish is mostly sweet with a light hops aftertaste. A step up from the Killianís level but not a real big one.

BVery (8911) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - OCT 26, 2012
UPDATED: OCT 27, 2012 Bomber at Darkness Day 2012. Amber pour with a small head. Very malty, thinner palate. Not bad but not great.

phaleslu (8215) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 5, 2010
22 oz. bottle from Ludlow Wines or Kellerís IGA, donít remember which, but both have this beer for the low price of $3.99. Pours a nice clear amber color with a finger-thick off-white head. Notes of caramel and brown sugar are heavily present, with toast, nuts, tea, and earthy hops. Light-medium bodied, with soft carbonation and a toasty mouthfeel. Nice amber ale from TBK.

Thanks to blutt59 for sharing this bottle. The beer pours a clear amber color with a white head. The aroma is toffee with some dirt and earthy hops. The flavor is toffee, earthy hops and caramel malt. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. A little disappointing overall.

Glouglouburp (6103) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 15, 2008
In short: Some sort of soft Pale Ale. As drinkable as it is forgettable
How: Tap at brewpub
The look: Clear dark golden body with a short-lived off-white head
In long: Malt profile is smooth juicy fruity caramel (rye?). Hopping is basic citrusy hops. Almost well balanced, although shifted a bit towards the malt. Medium carbonation, medium body. There really isnít much to say here. Nothing offensive but this is a basic low-profile American ale that I often get in little coutryside brewpubs. Copperhead Redneck Ale.
