Bomber--roasted smell with citrus dominance. Light hints of fruit with small alcohol burn.--nice copper color with off white head--nice initial taste with bitter burn at end--coats the mouth--overal too much citrus and harshness without a good enough flavor base for my tastes

Bomber. Poured medium-golden with a short off-white head.. not anywhere near clear.. not visually appealing. The aroma picked up biscuity malts and caramel with not a whole lot of hops or rye coming through.. some broken-down citrus and grassy notes, but thats about it. The flavor found biscuit, caramel, and molasses malt at the core, with light herbal and piney bitterness around.. some rye and toasted grains on the tacky, bitter, unpleasant finish. Medium-bodied and tacky at times on the palate.. this either wasnt very good, or I just didnt get it.
