3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bomber from Wine & Cheese in Clayton, MO. Pours dark and ruddy with a slight beige head. Aroma is caramel with lots of hop that’s not very citric or resin. Med body. Flavor is caramel with lots of hop that’s not very citric or resin. Not exactly earthy, but that’s about as close as I can come. It’s hoppy. It even burns a bit. Hebal hop? At the very end there’s a tobacco leather note. Mysterious.

22 oz. bottle via BA trade. Pours a clear amber color with a small off white film. The aroma is rather mild overall and contains floral, soapy and herbal notes. There is a sweetness to the nose as well. The flavor has a pale malt base, light caramel, grassy, herbal with a hint of citrus. There is mild bitterness in the finish. Perhaps this could use a touch more carbonation to bring out the flavors a little more.

thanks Nelson for the share.
pours golden, white head.
aroma, thin hops, the malt was more present, light toasted and some orange peel.
flavors, profile is definitely more malty with subdued hops, get some tangerine, simcoe hops, touch of caramel, some cardboard.
Not bad, just a tad too heavy on the malts.
