COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our lightest in terms of alcohol comes in at 4.8% by volume so that malt can dominate the flavor profile. Caramel sweet malt all over the palate with a noticeable “jumping just over the barrier” citrus hop aroma. Surprisingly refreshing for such a malt driven ale. Truly and all season American Amber.

Drake (14078) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 25, 2012
Bomber from Sam’s Quik Stop. Pours a hazy amber color with a medium sized frothy tan head. Decent head retention. Aroma of grainy malts with some toastiness and floral hops. The taste is toasted malts with a resin hop finish. Medium bodied.

Blairgus (4615) - California, USA - NOV 25, 2012
25 nov 2012, bottle. Rosy amber, clear, steady bubbles. Nose is bread crust and orange and grapefruit citrus hops. Med body and faintly fizzy. Has a dry bread malt background that is faint at first but comes out more in the finish. In the middle is the soft city's rind and perhaps peach hops. Nice. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottled sample. Was much better than expected. Carmel flavor was a bonus. Loved the hops also. Will have this again ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

NachlamSie (3570) - Denver, Colorado, USA - OCT 27, 2014
Bomber from the brewery. Pours a solid shade of amber with a tall, rocky, bubbly off white head. The aroma is grassy and citrusy with notes of lozenges. Malts are nice, providing a biscuit and caramel balance. Palate is on the lighter side of the style, but the carbonation is nice and the sweeter flavors give an impression of a fuller mouthfeel. The flavor is well balanced with refreshing bitterness countered by hints at bread, caramel and a distinct nuttiness and toast. It’s not particularly exciting, though the hints at almonds in the finish are a welcome surprise. This is clean and sessionable though.

Pint at the Denver Taproom. Orange to amber and lightly hazy in appearance with a lacy, light tan head. Malty aroma with notes of bread, toffee and caramel malt. Similar flavor, pretty clean, smooth, straightforward amber ale with a medium body. Solid.

Had this during the 2011 Shenandoah Throwdown. Touches of smoke and sweet malt and toast. Toast and sweet malt. Sweet and malty, with a light bitterness and a touch of caramel. Toast and malt on the finish.

ekoerper (599) - Iowa, USA - MAR 6, 2012
Nose is full of caramel malts, biscuits, bread, slightly nutty, faint touch of hops. Pours a slightly hazy copper, one finger off-white head with good retention, leaves spotty lacing. Flavor is of course quite malt-forward, caramel and toffee, toasty and biscuity, pleasant hop bitterness to balance and some citrus hop flavor. Medium body and carbonation.
