Bottle: Pours a nice copper color with a toasted head. The nose is hoppy and fresh with some light maltiness and spicy rye notes. The flavor isn’t too strongly leaning towards rye which is a good thing because I’m not the biggest fan of earthy hoppy rye beers (Denny Conn’s for example). This one has much more of a crisp reserved hoppiness and a nice thick bready note that lets the rye really take center stage. Very nice. Nephilium (1820) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - JUN 1, 2012
Big blast of rye aromas, with a hint of lemon. Pours a reddish-amber, with a full white head. Nice and chewy mouthfeel, with a lot of spice notes from the rye. Finishes with a bit of roasted notes. This is a nice solid Rye beer, especially at under $4 a bomber. beerguy101 (5360) - Newark, California, USA - MAR 20, 2013
Sampled on 3/20/2013. This rye beer pours a slightly cloudy amber color from a 22oz bottle. Small to medium bodied white foamy head with decent retention and nice lacing. The aroma is fruity, bready and sweet with some rye spiciness and some hops. A medium bodied rye beer. The malts are bready, fruity and sweet. The hops are herbal, earthy and spicy. Lively carbonation. Nice balanced between the bread, hops and rye; malt and bready at first then hops and spice. Very drinkable. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly bitter. bhensonb (15252) - Woodland, California, USA - MAY 25, 2014
Bomber from the Utah State store on Harris in Salt Lake City. Pours very hazy orange amber. Slight white head. Aroma of rye spice and fruit. Med body or better. Flavor is rye spice and fruit - arguably citrus. It’s malty. But it’s not sweet malty. So back to rye and rye spice. It’s not super strongly flavored, but it’s very flavorful. If you like rye, you should like this. Makes me long for pastrami on rye. Stuu666 (13436) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JAN 28, 2015

Drank this in a van down by the river. Bomber courtesy of douglas88. Pours hazy amber with copper hues and tan head with some spotty lacing. The aroma is kind of apples, pears, blueberries and yeasty spice rolling into a rye loaf of bread. The taste is an estery, malt roasty and mildly earthy mix to start with. It then morphs a bit as the carbonation enhances some spicy malt and spicy yeast notes. It gets a touch dry thanks to some malt roastiness into the finish. portableparty (2350) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - JUL 21, 2011

Taste is definity rye bread and biscuit with some bitterness and sugar. Palate is creamy medium feel and finishes chaulky and dry. Pretty solid tasting brew! italarican (1551) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 14, 2012
