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.

Draft - Overwhelmed by caramels and toffee, but not too sweet. Very mild and creamy on the tongue. Mainly lightly toasted malts but not much else. A nice simple beer.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Deep amber-brown pour. Nice toasted malt character with a it of caramel and toffee. A fairly assertive woody hoppiness along with a decent bitterness. Lingering caramelly sweetness but it’s accented by the bitterness. Simple ASA but it drank good.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
22 oz. bottle shared by Ferris. He had a boatload (RV load?) of these after stopping by the brewery en route to RBWG, so they were a mainstay in the Fart Dungeon, hotel, and everywhere else throughout the week. It pours a clear deep copper color with a small off-white head that settles into a ring. Notes of peanuts, toasted malts, leaves, sugars, a bit of grass and cardboard. Light-medium bodied, with low carbonation and a toasty, earthy mouthfeel. It’s fine, but not a particularly exciting style.
