Bomber on 5/15/09. Slightly hazy, tawny gold with a medium white head. Some light grain and fruit up front and fainlty earthy hops. Medium body and carbonation, fairly dry palate. Balance between a toffee sweetness and light peppery bitterness results in a pleasant enough flavor. Fairly run of the mill, but a good session type beer.
