Bottle. Pours dark ruby with a thin white head. Aroma is a bit nutty. Taste adds some dark fruit and a strong pilsner malt finish. Mouthfeel is light with a crisp carb. Solid lagerish beer. Good intro to alt.

Hazy dark amber color with ivory sheen. Toasty, caramel aromas.medium body, average carbonation. toasted caramel flavors with some mild flora---decent mikey (503) - farmington, Utah, USA - MAY 20, 2013
Malty nose with some caramel notes; it’s heavier on the biscuit/bread than on the caramel/sweet side. There is also a dash of earthy/noble hop character. The taste is a creamy concoction of bread and caramel, with a little bit of biscuit at the end and a balanced bitterness. More tilted to the caramel side than the aroma, I rather like the flavor. Mouthfeel is medium with a good, creamy carbonation. I like it. Fech (291) - Parsippany, New Jersey, USA - MAY 11, 2013
Copper hue foamy tan head. Strong overtones of malts mixed with slight notes of the german noble hops lemon peel and coriander. Fatehunter (2584) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - MAY 9, 2013
Poured a finger of head on a dark amber colored body. Looks great.
It smells old (it is an altbier after all). Seriously, it has a good barnyard/hay and earth smell to it.
It’s fairly complex for an alt with some mild maltiness to start, then some hop spice and finishes with a bit of burnt wood.
The texture is crisp with moderate carbonation.
I haven’t tasted many, but this is the best altbier I’ve had.

Aroma of graham crackers, lemon, coriander, and cinnamon. Copper colored and very clear. Tastes medium sweet, lightly sour, and medium bitter. Not bad, but don’t want the whole bomber. robforbes (2257) - Bremerton, Washington, USA - MAY 7, 2013

smell is of caramel, some fruit, a touch of grain, malt, and some hops.
taste is of caramel, a touch of citrus, a little fruit, malt, some corn, and hops in the back. ends a little dry and a little bitter. Atom (2530) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAY 7, 2013
Bomber pours a bright reddish/copper with a large bubbly khaki head. Aroma of caramel, toffee, and cereal grains. Taste of cereal grains of dry caramel with a bitter hop finish. Simple and enjoyable. r464 (2362) - Earth, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 3, 2013
Dark coppery color with a light tan head. Sweet, malty base with a caramel flavor. Crisp, fizziness with a mildly bitter hops punch. Full body, very nice. camborne (656) - Hopkins, Minnesota, USA - APR 27, 2013
Malt bomb. Malt nose followed by strong malty palate. Just not my thing. Addition of decent hops helps save this one
