4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
bomber - Smoked cider, I do not know what to make of it, but I am curious enough to try it. Sure enough, the nose is smoked apples. smoked fucking apples. this is delicious. This has many of the qualities I look for in a beverage: enough alcohol to be effective but not too much that it can’t be session-able, smoke, sweetish taste that is somewhat balanced, lingering finish that makes me wonder (AKA heady), pleasant aftertaste, something memorable and unique, and a marmot on the label. I can enjoy this at any season. Tomorrow, I am buying all that I can find.

Clear, wet copper with a ring of white foam.
Red apple-peel, old, soft apple, a whiff of fruit-wood smoke.
Taste is softly smoky, woody, red apple and peel...a hint of meat smoke.
I really enjoyed this one.
All the elements work really well.

Bomber from Total Wine in Folsom, CA. Pours dark copper with very little head. Smoky aroma. Med body or nearly. Flavor is tart apple skin with smoke, finishing with quite a bit of smoke. If you like smoke, you should like this.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: Thanks Worldofwood: Served in a Chouffe glass:
Lively creme head that disappears right away and leaves a headless clear orange to amber colored beer.
Aromas of yellow apples, smoked branches, hint of leather, light dusty, smoke, some other fruits with a light sweet character.
Flavour is lightly alcoholic, light acidic apples with a close to nasty malty bitterness, light wood smoke, light herbal, apples and some dryness. The bitterness becomes better with time.
Aftertaste is bitter, apple, smoke, herbs and some sweet coal.
Low carbo, light creamy mouthfeel, medium bodied and a light creamy dry texture.
Was expecting, maybe more, maybe not, but was expecting a surprise and got it. Funny and quite tasty Cider. In balance with the smoke, just a less interesting bitterness...
