2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Aroma is richly and appetizingly malty, with hints of wheat and banana. Color is a nice, clear orangy amber with an off-white, fluffy, persistent head. Flavor was a bit of a let-down, though, on the thin side - not much malt and just a hint of hops. It is good, though, and this beer would be much better if the flavor had some strength. Finish is smooth and leaves a touch of hops and fruit.

Cask, 4.4%. Slightly buttery aroma. Hazy dark amber colour, small frothy head. The flavour is slightly sweet, some caramel and a little butter. A little fruity aroma hops in the finish along with a touch of alcohol.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Cloudy dark amber pour covered by a 1-inch off-white head that fully lasts. Very, very bready nose feels almost fluffy with all this foam. In mouth, lots of residual sugars become evident, but the palate feels thicker and more comfortable all the same. Unfortunately, after a few sips, the bitterness is just missing and desired.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Cask-conditioned at The Raven, Bath, 19/7/08. I sampled this in between the Cornish beer festival at The Star in Bath and the summer festival at The Royal Oak. The variety on offer was wide and generally high quality. Unfortunately, Bomber stood out from the crowd in a negative way, being one dimensional with plenty of caramel sweetness and not much else. Not one to try again.
