light brown, light malty, nutty, mildly bitter mouth. Not too authentic, but ok. jeffs515 (123) - Ogden, Utah, USA - OCT 1, 2012
Aroma is a lemon citrus malty with some small amounts of floral hops. Pours a golden orange with lots ofcarbanations thick frothy head leaves some lacing little oily. Taste is very malty yeasty little citrus floral leaves the mouth very sticky. Overall nota bad beer. KUEric (977) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - SEP 27, 2012
A darker coppery orange color beer under a fairly fluffy head. The beer smells/tastes a little more (almost) skunky than I expected it to. Not like the beer was actually skunked, just a little bitter. It also was at the same time fruitier than I expected. I got a touch of nuttiness, but not as much of the English maltyness that their description lead me to expect. Ughsmash (7508) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 19, 2012
Bomber, release #16. Poured clear, medium golden with a sticky white head. The aroma picked up soft, toasted honey, grains, and bready malt, with lemon zest and a touch of saltiness around.. very pleasant. The flavor found honeycomb and light, toasty grainy malts at the core.. a touch of citrus and a wash of honey around the edges and through the refreshing, slightly tangy finish. Light-bodied with a smooth, creamy flow through the palate.. left some honey and floral essence on the finish.. tasty stuff. ngeunit1 (1555) - Waltham, Massachusetts, USA - AUG 23, 2012
A - Pours a cloudy amber-orange with a finger of frothy white head. The head fades down at a normal pace leaving behind some light lacing.
S - Aroma is a mix of sweet biscuity malts with some fruity English yeast esters, with some nuttiness.
T - Starts off with some sweet biscuit or cracker malts with some fruity English yeast esters. Through the middle, some nuttiness and bready malts come through with a bit of bitterness and some more fruitiness. The finish is a mix of sweet bready malts with fruity English yeast flavors and nuttiness.
M - Medium-minus bodied with mild carbonation. Feels smooth with a sweet and fruity finish.
D - Very drinkable. Nice example of an English mild. Good overall balance and malt profile.

Bottle fresh from the brewery. Release #21, 5.1% ABV. I am no mild expert but this was pretty tasty. I almost wrote that the beer was fairly "mild" but I suppose that’s the point. Mild without being boring. nice sessionable ale. crajun (1259) - , Texas, USA - AUG 5, 2012
bomber to glass; rec’d in trade from gription79
Nothing bad to say - straightforward beer - aroma of malt, straw, and slight vanilla. Taste is maltiness but not overly sweet; nicely carbonated - goes down easy DavoleBomb (1867) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 31, 2012
Poured into a pint glass. Release #17, 4.6% ABV.
2.5 A: Moderately hazed medium orange color. Three fingers of frothy off-white head. Retention is about average and no lacing is left.
3.5 S: Lightly bready yeast and malts with a pleasant nuttiness. That’s about all.
3.5 T: Same as the nose. Lightly bready and nutty. Yeasty to round things out.
3.5 M: Medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Lightly creamy and smooth.
3.5 D: Tasty beer. Not a lot of complexity, but good enough.

Bomber from the brewery store. Pours hazy medium brown with a coarse off white head that disappears quickly. Aroma is a a little smoke, peat. Taste is malty, a bit of straw. Not a favorite but then I’m not a big fan of the style. poisoneddwarf (2625) - Coeur d’ Alene, Idaho, USA - JUL 18, 2012
Bomber. This style is extremely hard to find where I live, believe it or not. Pours hazy golden orange with a small collapsing white head. Aroma is bready malt, vanilla, faint hops. Taste is sweet and a bit tart with only a hint of bitterness in the finish. Has a somewhat nutty flavor. Simple and easy going down.
