4.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
Aroma is mild and lightly bready. Appearance is like a champagne beer with those tiny bubbles. Taste is subtle and would go very well with various food pairings like seafood salad. Ginger is a great spice that has a calming effect on the palate and constitution. Definitely, a pre-course starter beer. Great company collaboration.

Bottle. Pours a dark golden color with a moderate off-white head on there. Nose is fizzy with a lot of ginger and wheat coming through. Taste also has a lot of ginger, and really just put me off. Not a fan.

Bomber from Made in Oregon. Pours bright gold with a slight, fizzy white head. Aromas of lemon and ginger. My bottle is carbonated, but not all that fizzy. There’s light malt, light lemon and moderate ginger. I’d like more ginger, but that’s me.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
On draft at Tap 25. It pours a clear gale gold color with an off white head. The aroma is bright and lemony with some tart grapefruit and hints of ginger spice. The flavor is light and gingery, but more of the candied ginger flavor rather than the spice. Some florals and lemon peel. Pleasant. A little noble hop character near the finish. A tad soapy mid palate, but otherwise good.
