Beer pours a clear, medium-yellow amber color with a small, white, fizzy, mostly and quickly diminishing head. The aroma is nasty: Heavily malty with a note of toasted bread, cereal/dog kibble and husky toasted grain; Trace hoppy with a note of herbs; trace yeasty with a note of cellar; Moderate miscellaneous metallic note. The flavor is lightly sweet, lightly-to-moderately bitter, moderately-to-heavily acidic with a lightlybittersweet, moderately acidic, unclean finish. The body is light, the texture is watery and the carbonation is heavier-than-average. Can I be done with this stinker now? Fantomas23 (463) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 21, 2006
People at the Denver airport were drinking this like water. I must say, if you are traveling and you must have a layover, I highly recommend having that layover at the Denver airport. By far, the best beer selection I’ve seen. Anyway…..A brownish ale with decent head. The body was a little thin and the flavor a little "dummied down." Kind of goes with what I’ve heard about this beer: it’s a shadow of its former self. So it goes with progress and popularity. But as long as it introduces people to good beer, I suppose it’s worth the sacrifice. Easy drinking brew with a biscuity middle. My wife says that there’s a chocolatey finish. I didn’t really get that, but it kept her drunk and happy....so who am I to question? swedeboy63 (2) - USA - MAR 21, 2006 does not count
Sweet smell, nice amber coloring even better taste. Inspired by a bikeride through Belguim. The brewery in Ft. Collins is worth the trip. Fin (10542) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 21, 2006
Smallish Bottle. Very clear amber colour, nutty, hoppy, malty, full flavoured and very pleasant indeed. thebeertourist (5189) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAR 18, 2006
22 oz bottle. Clear amber colour with a medium white head. Caramel and biscuit aroma. Sweet biscuity, slightly nutty flavours with yeastiness providing for a drier finish. Medium body. An above average amber ale with inspirations from Belgium and Germany.

Bomber, spring 2006. Pour was a clear, medium caramelly-amber with a tall rocky white head. Quite a bit of lacing followed it down. Nose was of toasty caramel and biscuits with a woodsy/floral hop backing... came across as more of a marzen. Flavor was rather non-descript... with some toasty bread and caramel maltage and a dose of floral hops... nothing exciting, and only moderately enjoyable. Palate was on the lighter side with moderate bitterness. Not bad.

Amber coloured and hoppy. Some dryness in a nutty flavoured full malt finish. chargerfanjess (129) - San Diego, California, USA - MAR 14, 2006
Interesting brew, a slight belgian like in a minimalistic sence. Nutty spice middle malt low hop level. Almost pale in color copperish. Decent drinking beer, 5.3% semms high. evilsoc (191) - WALES - MAR 13, 2006
On tap around Boulder. Beer that makes me smile all over. Not breaking any world records for flavour but as good a malt biscuit flavour as I can find on tap, perfect subtle hop balance, finish that makes you order another.
