Nutty malt aroma. Substantial mouthfeel. Flavor goes to an unusual ‘corner’ of the taste triangle - hard to characterize - pleasantly astringent with strong earthy notes....malty, but not in the least bit sweet. Enjoyable as a sipper on a cool fall day. My goodness, does Heater Allen ever make good beer! donandres (687) - Makati, PHILIPPINES - SEP 6, 2017

Sight: Amber, big foam, a little hazy
Smell: Malty, not a lot aroma, nothing bad either
Taste: Low bitterness, sweet compared to other beers, very good
Mouthfeel: light mouthfeel, even with the higher alcohol, very good follow through, sweet finish
Overall: very good beer, ok to repeat but not look for FlacoAlto (4228) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - JUL 30, 2017

A steady pour produces a one-finger thick, pale tan colored head. The beer is a bright golden color that shows a lightly hazed, yellow-golden hue when held up to the light. The aroma smells of wild-flowers, spicy herbal notes, sunbaked grain, and nutty pale malt.
Nicely herbal and floral up front, with a peppery, spicy, herbal finish. The body has a soft fullness to it that coats the palate initially, but then cleans up and lightens with the hop finish. Suggestions of honey, without the sweetness, rich pale malt flavors (nutty notes, and not quite sweet, wholesome grain flavors), and an herbal character that has hints of mint, a touch of sage (or other woody herbal notes), some nettle, a hint of lemon zest. The malt character gains complexity as the beer warms up; the texture gets a bit more chewy and velvety; the flavor picks up more honey-like notes, which balances with the toasted, and nutty pale malt flavors quite well.
This is a very tasty beer; extremely enjoyable and one I could drink regularly.

Bomber from Corti Bros. Pours translucent gold with a white head. Aroma of light malt with a hint of noble hop. Near full bodied. Flavor is grassy/spicy over a nice "warming" slightly roasty malt. Finishes bitter enough for me. Pretty tasty. nickd717 (4997) - San Francisco, California, USA - AUG 1, 2015
Bomber from Bom Dia in Noe Valley. Cloudy orange color with a lasting one finger white head. Malty bready grassy hop aroma. The flavor is liquid bread, mildly sweet and very balanced with a slightly bitter finish. Great mouthfeel, very crisp with medium body. Elite for the style. jgb9348 (6584) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - MAY 4, 2015
Rich copper coloured body with hints of golden tints and a bit of thin tan head. Aroma of light malt, a touch of hops, some unfinished sugars and a bit of grassy bite. Light to Medium-bodied; Strong herbal flavour with a nice and refined grassy bite with a subdued yet strong lager taste and feel. Aftertaste shows a light and rather deep malt presence with hints of oatmeal and grain, along with some light hops. Overall,a balanced beer with a nice taste overall and nice to sample with some thai food. I sampled this pint on draught at Pok Pok in Portland, Oregon on 03-May-2015 which coupled well with the Northern Thai food. bytemesis (9502) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - JAN 25, 2015
