650 ml bottle.douglas88 (9797) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAR 13, 2011
Pours a cloudy amber colour with a small head. Aroma of biscuity malts, grass and chocolate. Flavour of biscuity malts, chocolate, berries, grassy hops, chocolate and some floral notes. Medium bodied, slick mouthfeel and a finish of malts, some chocolate and bitterness. Good.
Bomber release number one. Pours a very cloudy bronze color with a medium white head. A sweet rye and grainy nose, the yeasts definitively add some hefe-like banana and fruit here. A nice earthy flavor; spicy rye, bready for sure, lemon and perhaps some ginger. Pretty nice and very drinkable. ekoerper (599) - Iowa, USA - JUL 15, 2011
Aroma is mostly bready and spicy rye notes, very pleasant. Pours a very murky amber, white head which dissipates to a ring. Spicy rye, lemon, faint hops, bready malts, and yeast make up most of the flavor. Medium-full body and medium carbonation. bu11zeye (13239) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - SEP 2, 2011
(22oz bottle, courtesy of thirdeye11) Pours a clear orange body with a medium cream head. Aroma of toasted rye, banana, honey, and earth. Flavor of toasted rye, caramel, light citrus, and honey. islay (3125) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - SEP 15, 2011
22 oz. bottle. Aroma features chocolate chip cookie and Tootsie Roll scents from the malts. Lemon rind. Fresh and yeasty smell. I’m not getting much in the way of spices that I expect from a rye beer. Pours a hazy, effervescent, medium brown with a moderate to large amount of long-lasting beige head. Produces good lacing, and has a good look to it overall. Milk chocolate and cookie flavors. It tastes like a straight-forward, but high quality, brown ale, except with a welcome dry hops – and perhaps rye spice – kick in the finish. Dry aftertaste. Light to medium body. Lively, frothy, and silky in what amounts to a nice, though not special, palate. You know, it’s a pretty enjoyable brew, thought it’s not exactly my kind of beer stylistically, and it clashed with my expectations in appearance, aroma, and flavor. The point is, it wasn’t what I was expecting, but, hey, I liked it.

Bottle at Paul’s. Pours dark amber with off white head. Nose/taste of caramel, rye, malt, resin and lemon peel. Medium body. _angst_ (5009) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - NOV 18, 2012
Bomber bought @ Bierkompass.de. Pours hazy dark brown with a frothy beige head that leaves some thick lacing on the glass while dissipating. Smell is sweet and fruity with dark bread, pears in sugar syrup, gummi candy, green apple skin, cinnamon, lemon zest and rye flour. Taste is sweet, fruity and spicy with rye flour, black pepper, canned pears and apples, dark bread, liquorice, spearmint, lemon zest, almonds, dried fruit sponge cake and hints of dried apricots and canned mandarin oranges. Mouthfeel is round, creamy and medium bodied. Finish is tiny sweet and slightly malty with dark rye bread, spearmint, orange and lemon zest, canned pears, lemon grass, black pepper and liquorice root. Weird but decent. alexsdad06 (11242) - West Chester, Ohio, USA - FEB 24, 2013
Draft. Pours a hazy amber color with a medium sized off white head. The aroma has caramel malt, mild spicy rye, crackers with light earthy notes. The flavor has much of the same; caramel malts, mild rye notes, toasted crackers, and hints of earthy hops. OK, but...
