3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
From notes. Tasted from bomber bottle at Lush West Town. Pours clear amber orange with a thin white head that leaves a very thin collar. The nose is fairly non-descript with a hint of malts and spices peeking through. The flavors are mostly malt with some sweetness and a hint of bitterness. The body is medium plus with light carbonation and a medium sweet and malty finish.

Copper with light, beige, head / Sweet nose of spun sugar and malt / Medium body, malty and sweet, cloying, very low carbonation and hopping / Flavors of spun sugar and cooked fruit / Not true to the style, and ignoring that, not a very good beer.

Bottle. Pour is deep hazy copper with a subtle off white head that dissipates to a ring around the glass. Aroma is dried sour cherries and malt and wood. Taste is sugary malt and wood with some carmel as well. Palate is slick and sticky with minimal carbonation and finishes dry.

A rather potent and heavy version of an Oktoberfest. Very nice but nothing you would throw back a lot of. Serving: Bottle

This was decent but a bit underwhelming in taste. Poured a light orange like color. Some roasted malt and hops.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bomber. Pours deep golden with a creamy beige head. Aroma of honey, and caramel, sweet malts, toffee and candyish. Toasted bread and a bit cookie like. Flavor is very sweet, a bit of oak and a lot of honey, so sweet and candy like. Finishes a bit on the bland grainy side, and a creamy toffee richness. Medium to full body and a soft carbonation. I actually like the idea of an oak aged oktoberfest, it is just too sweet and a bit cloying to be elite for the style.
