3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bomber from The Beer Mongers. Pours copper with a white head. Aroma is fairly malty with some arguably grassy hop. Med body. Flavor is malty with some noble type hops. Pretty decent beer. Finishes less than dry, but decently hoppy\bitter.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Won a bottle of this at the May 2009 Fred Fest. It was a 750 and said "Annual Employee Meeting", dated January ’06 (I think. I don’t have the bottle anymore!). Colour... light amber with a thin head. Nose... some malt and hops but nothing esp. noteworthy. Palate... decent carbonation, mild flavours of malt, toffee and hops and fairly dry, clean finish.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
"Alt Or Nothing!"
Annual Employee Meeting, January 26, 2006, 750 ml bottle, 4.7% abv
Clear, rich, honeyed amber color, fine, if this, layer of whitish head....
Aroma is malty, grainy, very hoppy, vibrant, raw...yet clean...not to my usual liking, however...
Taste: crisp, clean, light malty feel, bready, but plenty hoppy too...and still missing something in the mouthfeel, something substantial lacks in the body...not bad for a not-bad beer, but I’d want something extra...an easy-to-drink beer, custom made for a all-purpose gathering...not the sort I’d choose for a beer for my own, but a nice brew to share with those of less driscriminatin’ tastes...crisp, hoppy, malty, dry...that’s the order...a clean, lean, stripped-down brew....does taste rather like an alt, but an extra-hoppy version...not that I mind.
