Amber in color, clear with a thin head. Nice beer with tons of malt forward flavors. I was hoping for more balance with the hops. Not bad needs more Hops.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a slightly cloudy amber color. Faint aroma of malt with just the ever slightest hint of hops. Taste sits right in the middle between hops and malt. Decent beer.

Bomber poured a clear amber with a lasting amber head. Aromas of bread, carmel, light fruittiness and a hint of earthiness. Palate was medium bodied and smooth. Flavors of bread, carmel and light fruittiness with a smooth lingering carmel finish.

Pours a dark ruby red with a small white ring. Aroma is caramel malts, sweet candy and earthy hop. Taste is fairly bland, caramel malts, sweetness and a very small hop presence. Would like more hops.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured (probably too) cold right out of the fridge with a thick, gold tinged cream head that quickly subsided and no lace. Color is a clear honey amber with some tiny bubble trails. Aroma is hop at first then a nice heavy caramel with a little toffee, malt. Flavor’s like nose, fairly dry, heavy carbonic tang, not a lot going on. Body’s a tad thin while carbonation is a bit overbearing. Finish is like flavor, short, and totally forgettable. Wish I could’ve let this warm a bit first.

Bottled. Pours an attractive red brown with substantial head. Starts strong on the hops and finishes heavy on the malts. 1-2 punch.
