Atlanta, Ga. - Tower Beer, Wine & Spirits - 22 oz bomber. Murky dark orange pour, very light off white head clings to the edge of the glass. Aroma is sweet, with some dates and prunes, a touch of banana. Flavor leans to the sweet side of the spectrum with dates and raisins being the most prominent. Pick up some ripening vegetables similar to what one would find in an Oktoberfest. Somey bready yeasty notes round it out. Not feeling it on this one - Full Sail usually impresses me.

Sampled from a 22 oz brown bottle this beer poured a nut brown-caramel color with a medium sized foamy beige head that lingered and left decent lacing.The aroma was sweet with toasted caramel and nut. The flavor was initially sweetish, malty and toasty with honey and caramel followed by light fruity hops but there was an astringent medicinal note underneath that grew as it warmed and became distracting. Long finish. Medium body. Meh. AirForceHops (8037) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - MAY 6, 2012
22 oz. bottle purchased @ Julio’s Liquor’s for $4.99 minus Wild Six Discount. Used a Kolsch glass. Ruby / brown color with sizable, white lasting head. Light lace. Overall nice eye appeal. Nose of malt and some floral hop like aroma’s. Toffee flavors with graininess and a decent hop bitterness in the back end to give it a more traditional German feel to it. The bitterness lingers just a bit. A nice offering.

22. Pours a crystal clear rubied medium amber with a dense and creamy tan head that doesn’t stick around for long. Nose leans from the caramel way over into a tinniness that’s not very pleasant, plus some wet grass from the hops. Creamy medium body with soft carb. Caramel, tin, and wet grass on the mid palate. Mild finish. Showing some potential. Sledutah (7978) - Utah, USA - SEP 13, 2012

Light to medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation, lightly alcoholic.
Light, watery, and sour (both in nose and mouth). Not very good. Strykzone (7803) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - NOV 29, 2014
Bomber from Hayduke that we had together via facebook chat. This beer is pretty much clear and deep amber. A beige head sits atop. I wish the aroma were bigger. It brings grain, caramel, and a little fruit. Flavor is grain with caramel and some harshness. At some point a little fruit pops in along with dark fruit. Some sourness in the finish of each sip. Some nuttiness is tasted late. Towards the finish the hops moved up into a nice balance. Just a hint of mintiness there, too. This was certainly a modern take on an Alt and it was a nice one.

Bottle 650 ml
Aroma: clean malty aroma with Noble hop character, Citrus mineral hints.Fresh.7+
Appearance: tad darker than average Alt. Dark amber with hint of ruby. Tanned creamy beige cap with some lace. 4-
Taste: medium lighter bodied. Citrussy with caramel and toffee. Some leaf-woody bitterness. Lacking some nutty woody hints. Tad too sweet with its caramel like Vienna malt side. Good dry finish. Not perfect style wise but good ale after all.
