Burnt orange color, slightly cloudy. Huge off white head. Aroma has some citrus notes that are almost apricot like. Medium mouth. Taste is full of apricots, almost earth-like. Bitter, but not dry. Interesting flavor profile. A little lace hangs around.

Pours a hazy amber color with a fluffy foam head that laces my glass. The aroma is of sweet malted grains, fruit, and a light herbal floral hop presence. Tasting, I noticed a sugary grain flavor, dryness from the soft booze, a minor apricot taste, some citrus, and a pleasant bitterness. Overall the finish is enjoyable and this was a kind drinker. I’d have this again.

AWISLguy (1890) - Wisconsin, USA - JUN 2, 2015
Bomber from Jim’s in Mundelein. Hazy amber brown pour with an off-white head leaving some spots of lace. Aroma has malts, tangy pine, light stone fruits and some earth. Taste is of sweet toffee, pine, some citrus and some resin. Medium to full bodied with some alcohol. Finishes sweetly tangy with some bitterness. A bit more hoppy than many bitters, although not as much as one expects/hopes for from a FFF product. 13.6

Look - Dark orange. Medium off white head, almost tan. Creamy head. Lacing. See through. Smell - Caramel. Bread. Light fruitiness. Taste - Caramel. Bread. Grassy. Orange. Lemon. Apricot. Raisin. Feel - Medium body. Doesn’t explode. Taste of some wheat beers without the carbonation. Overall - Not a taste I have often. Nice change of pace from the stouts and IPAs in the collection.

22 ounce bottle labeled as Lord Rear Admiral, bottled on 03/20/2015. Served in a pint glass, the beer pours an amber/copper color with about an inch off-white head that stuck around for a long time. There’s also a good amount of lacing. Aroma is nice, the brew smells like caramel and bready malt, stone fruit, and some grassy hops. It tastes like caramel and bready malt, toffee, candied oranges, grassy hops, and some apricot and light citrusy hops. Good balance between the malt and hops. Mouthfeel/body is medium, it’s a bit coating with a moderate amount of carbonation. It’s also smooth and easy enough to drink. I wouldn’t exactly call this a traditional ESB, but I sure liked it! $9.99 a bomber.
