Bomber from LCBO served cool in a tulip glass. Bright, clear orange amber, wicked color. Lots of crunchy Munich malt, light caramel, bread crust galore, a touch of noble hops, quite appropriate for style. Medium body, slightly lazy effervescence. Much like the nose with lots of bread crust, light caramel, Munich malt character, light noble hops; dry with fair bitterness and a pleasantly malty finish. Nailed the style. barncatmatt (2286) - Cambridge, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 28, 2013
Bomber from the lcbo. Amber with an off white head. A simple, true to style marzen. Clean and drinkable, well hopped but showcasing the malt. Nice seasonal beverage, but unfortunately priced to high or I’d enjoy it more often. Bendrixian (1514) - Canadiana, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 22, 2013
650 ml bottle. 5%. Super clear, light coppery colour. Roasted almonds and nutty but very yeasty and overall muted aroma. On the palate it is medium bodied at best, light and has a fast finish. It does have a little bit of a roasty bite. Fairly classic stuff which is not very exiting. AGAquino (667) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 18, 2012
From notes. At the Brewery. Pours a deep orange amber colour with a slight white head. Aroma is slightly sour, with notes of buttery vanilla. Flavour is sweet malts, some toffee, and slight hop bitter. Quite balanced. gilvanblight (825) - Windsor, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 8, 2012
Smells nutty. Very clear light pour compared to my last two. Rusty clear very little head. Light and easy to drink which is odd for and October beer. I expect strong thick and filling. Is is not bad though just not what I expected. Very refreshing. Reminds me of a couple amber ales I’ve had in the past. Actually enjoying this quite a bit.

Draught at C’est What, TorontoGorbalev (3000) - Ontario, CANADA - DEC 3, 2011
Golden to amber color, with creamy head. Some aroma of malt and hay. Smooth mouthfeel, with nice malt and hay flavor, some cereals, a bit creamy; correct bitterness. Balanced.
Bottle from the brewery. Light golden brown pour, good sized slick of a white head. Nice strong aroma of bread, roast, nuts - very inviting. Taste - very solid as well. Tons of nutty flavour balanced by lively carbonation and hops over a light body. Nice roast/nutty/sweet linger as well. Black oak knocked this one out of the park, well done guys, I wish I had bought more than the 6 pack! rob6239 (677) - Ontario, CANADA - OCT 31, 2011
On tap at c’est what. Excellent and pleasantly surprised at the high hop content. I can’t place the unique flavor maybe something like butterscotch? JoeMcPhee (9426) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 23, 2011
Deep amber-orange pour. Tight white head. The aroma is lightly sour with a touch of soft vanilla as well. Moderate Munich malt sweetness along with a touch of fruit that is kind of unwanted. A touch estery and chewy. Medium-bodied with a little bit of toffee as well. It’s actually fairly hoppy though and the hops are more UK than German. Odd brew- this is.

Tap at the Rebel House. Copper coloured pour with a tight and sticky head. The aroma is appropriately malty with lots of Munich malt toastiness. Light noble hops along with a touch of fresh bread crust. Good balance although it’s initially quite carbonic tasting. Better than the ratings would suggest.

A hazed amber with a thin white head. In aroma, white wine and smooth sweet malt, fruity esters. In mouth, a smooth nutty and oaky malt with oily mouthfeel, chalky, nice. Cask at Beaus’s Oktoberfest, Oct. 1 2011.
