light malty aroma. red in color with really nice long lasting head. taste is of light roasted barley and chocolate. smooth clean finish hawthorne00 (3948) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - FEB 14, 2017
Bottle, 10C. Deep clear red with an inch of light beige head that lasts quite well as laces well. Aroma of toffee and pine with overripe tropical fruit and citrus in the background. Smooth and medium to full bodied, carbonation is on the low side of medium. More bready than suggested by the aroma - indeed the malt side of things is broader and perhaps less sweet than suggested by the aroma. The pine, too, is not as prominent as expected an nestles in with bitter oranges, mild spices and floral notes. The end is just bitter enough to (nearly) choke off the sweetness and keep you interested. Good stuff and really outstanding for an amber ale.

Good sized frothy light bege head of fine and dense bubbles with good carbonation. Sweet aroma with some toffee, roasted grains, light vegetal aromas and some spicy hops. Color is a deep crimson. More sweetness in the flavor with some cinnamon, dry roasted malts, molasses and currents. Palate has a hint of chalkiness. Light alcohol presence. Light lingering dry bitterness. A decent brew. gyllenbock (9175) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JAN 31, 2017

Bomber. Caramel malt aroma with notes of toasted and toffee malt with a little bit of floral and pine hop aroma. Pours dark amber colored with one finger of tan head that has excellent retention but little lacing. Starts with sweet caramel malt flavors with a bit of toasted malt and toffee. Finishes a bit dry but with good floral and slight pine resiny hop bitterness to balance out the sweet malt nicely. Well made amber. SinH4 (4794) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - JAN 19, 2017
