Draft. Pours deep amber with a beige head. Toasted malts, very mild flowery hops, some straw, and a relatively balanced finish. Not bad. IndianaRed (4862) - Boise, Idaho, USA - APR 22, 2017
Deep brown amber pour, no head and just a faint ring of bubbles. Astringent sharp woody bitterness, not much hop flavor. Light roast and chocolate malt. JohnGalt1 (1721) - Boise, Idaho, USA - AUG 30, 2016
Deeep amber with a nice tannish head that shows good lacing for the entire glass.
Nose immediately is a little thin with light caramel malt and some heavier than ever expected fruitiness... light cherry and maybe some apricot.. odd. Hoppiness is there, but is blown out by the weird malt/ester profile.
Flavor mirrors the aromas with a bit of light cocoa or dark toffee elements .. seems a bit light in the flavors.. could use more malt presence across the board... and a little more residual malty sweetness could help carry the flavor a bit better. Hops are "present" but are the least of the problems.
Body is pretty light... carbonation seems about right though... seems a little watery. stevoj (5358) - Boise, Idaho, USA - NOV 8, 2014
This bottle had been sitting a while, and I think it was starting to get skunky and sour. Still the malts used were recognizable, slightly sweet. Syzzer (647) - Oregon, USA - AUG 9, 2014

Bomber from Hayduke. A medium brown beer that has a decent beige head. This is an typical amber in that it is full of sweet malts. A little fruit and earthiness. Hops are hard to find but a bit of grass and flowers are tasted. Decent. Sledutah (7752) - Utah, USA - APR 9, 2013

On tap at the brewpub. Pours a cloudy beige-earthy color with a medium white head. The aroma is light caramel and malts. The flavor was a nice amber ale; rich caramel and a earthy malt that seems to dominate McCall’s beers.
