Bottle 75 cl. Courtesy of fonefan. Pours a clear reddish amber with a white head. Nose has metal and dry berries. Light body, very dry and tart cherries with a metallic twist. May be considered quenching but really leaves some astringent tannins on my teeth. 060413

Bomber---> Burnt Hickory tulip. Pours a light amber with a hint of red and quickly disappating white head. Aroma is pretty malty with a small hint of cherry. Taste is light, mildly sour cherry and nondescript malt. Nice lively palate. Neither very sour or very cherry. Not bad, but kind of a letdown.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sour pickle juice aroma that’s not quite the level of a lambic, with cherry and toasty toffee. Hazy orange-copper under a pop fizz. Pale ale caramel flavour hides behind sour, fizzy cherry. Very refreshing and with a clean finish. Very high carbonation, light body, very clean.
