3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bomber from PC Market of Choice in Ashland. Pours dark ruddy copper with a creamy beige head. Aroma of roast malts with a hint of chocolate. Near med body. Flavor is roast malt, medium dark fruits, mixed hop. It seems pretty balanced on malt vs. bitter. It’s certainly more dry than not. I’m thinking the cousins might recognize this - fairly low ABV, not strongly bitter (to me), but bitter.

Bomber from Capital Market. Deep amber/ruby in color upon pouring. Fairly subdued nose with a little dark fruit coming through. Mild earthiness up front with quite a bit of dark fruit. A bit of hoppiness, but mostly malts and dark fruit. Very balanced easy drinking strong ale.

The beer pours a light brown with orange tinting to it. The aroma is slightly woody with notes of caramel to it. Taste wise, I am getting quite a bit of cola taste. A little bit of English cider notes pop in and out as well and that also adds some sweetness to the proceedings. Also a bit of raisin in the distance. The beer really sticks to the roof of the mouth. I also capture some nutmeg like spicing at the back. Lots of notes here.

This is a great strong ale. It’s flavor is complex but nor over the top. The price is right and the beer makes you happy. Top notch Southern Oregon brew.

On tap at the Green Dragon. Pours a cloudy toffee color with a medium beige head. A sweet nose of caramel and fruit. The flavor is well done: toffee, chestnuts, very dusty, light fruity hops. Smooth, yeasty. Good.

Ruby brown. Cherry and honey on the nose. Sweet with tree bark and raisins. Sweet but lacking something in the middle. Maybe it’s too dry. Has lots of oak.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap @ Marination Ma Kai. Pours medium dark caramel brown with thin off white head. Aroma is nutty roasty malt with only a bit of hops. Taste is mild roasty caramel malt with a lightly spicy hop finish. For all the hops that went into this, they came out pretty light. Very much in line with an English Strong Ale though, if that’s what you’re looking for.
