3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bomber. Color is copper with a pretty big white head. Aroma is earthy grain and grass. Taste lemon, pine hops and grain that’s not all that sweet. I didn’t like it on my first taste as it tasted medicinal, but as it warmed it opened up and became fairly well balanced. I’d try it again.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A: Really clear with a light copper hue and nice big head with long lasting frothy head.
S: Strong tropical lemony aroma with some grass and some dank piney notes that give way to a sweet malt aroma.
T: Lemon zest up front with some pine, then a really nice malt bready flavor.
M: Seemed a little light but that could be partially to due with the carbonation being a little on the low side.
O: Haven’t had too many Urban Legend beers yet but I really enjoyed this one, really like to see the mouth-feel change a little bit however.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sampled at the TapRoom. Pours a bright orangish amber with a white head. Aroma of citrus, grass, mild breadiness. Some orange peel and pine hop notes. Flavor is similiar, hop driven, bitter with mild bready sweetness. Medium bodied, average carbonation. One of my favorites from Urban Legend so far.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bomber shared and poured to snifters, showing a fairly clear, orangy gold color, modest, off white head foam that quickly reduced to a ring & bubbly film, and left some spots of lacing. The nose presented an initial dank grain scent, then some malt sweetness, citrus, and resiny pine. The taste provided a lingering hop bitterness that wasn’t malt tempered well enough to avoid a bit of a biting, caustic nature. Less than medium bodied, fairly carbonated, and a little light on texture & character. A passable Pale.
