2009 bomber from Archer Liquors. Pours lightly hazy amber with a four finger beige/tan head. Aroma seems pine over sweet malt. Medium body with medium carbonation. Malt is strong. Hop bitter is citrus? Heat is minimal, given the abv. Head does some lacing. Might be a bit toffee towards the end. Pretty well balanced finish. Bitter and sweet all at once. Pretty impressive.

4.5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Amber with a lasting white head. Intense malt aroma with lots of peach and pine hops behind it. Intense and huge sweet malty flavour with lots of pine hops for a near balance. Too sweet and big to drink a lot, but a wonderful sip!

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle @ Chris_o’s Pre-Beer Exposed Tasting, September 2008.
Pours a very pretty red with a small, creamy, off-white head. Aroma is powerfully hoppy, light strawberries, melons and lots of caramel. Fine, dry mouthfeel. Flavour is softly sweet, fine caramel and dried fruits. Good, high hoppiness. But it feels a bit ’old’ and rather dull - especially compared to that inflated average rating.
