3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
22oz Bottle. The pour was a hazy caramel brown with a small (1 finger or less) light brown frothy head that diminished down to a thin cap with good spotty lacing.
The aroma was of a sweet light bread malt, floral hops and a light soapy yeast with notes of caramel, citrus (orange) and a light fruity ester.
The taste was a malty bitter-sweet and had a touch of caramel throughout, with a light fruity hoppiness and a smidgen of citrus at the end. The flavor lasted an average time with a slightly fruity citrus peel bitterness left behind.
Mouthfeel was just beyond light in body and dry in texture with a medium carbonation.
Overall a pretty decent Pale Ale with a slight fruity appeal and a mildly bitter hoppiness...
Bomber from Total Wine, Gainesville. Pours amber brown with a small dusting of a beige head. Aroma of honey, fall leaves, slight fruits. Flavor is nutty leaves, light fruitiness, a little citrusy but that’s quickly taken over by the roasted malt. Totally drinkable, but not out of this world. StevieT (2039) - AUSTRALIA - NOV 27, 2016
On tap at Pike Brewing. A well made beer, nothing flash, just a solid, very drinkable pale. luttonm (6737) - Seattle, Washington, USA - AUG 21, 2016
Bottle, Orcas Island. Pretty clear, dark amber, big bubble foam. Sweet amber beer, nutty brown malt. Distant bitter. Old school. Not my vibe. Fruity overtones. Alright. thorongil2 (3422) - , Ontario, CANADA - AUG 13, 2016
(tap) clear bright amber colour with a small white head, faint aroma of honey, creamy palate, assertive balanced flavour with a long light bitter finish Aquilo (658) - Berkeley, California, USA - JUL 10, 2016
Clear amber with a creamy head. Not much aroma, perhaps some floral/ citrusy thing going on. Dry, typical pale ale flavor. Not bad, but nothing special, either.

Golden color, medium sized head. Regular blond Ale, a bit sweetish, but with decent hop touch, although the final is a bit too mild.
Easy, not bad.
