B5K. Dark amber colour, slightly hazy. Chewy brown sugary malts in the flavour. Full body. Aroma of toffee, nuts and hints of demerara. Sweet finish with toffeeish notes and a hint of alcohol. pinkzambia (2073) - Boise, Idaho, USA - NOV 16, 2006
22 oz. Bottle:Murky pond water brown with no head. Aroma of ripe apples ready to be made into cider and alcohol. The taste is bitter cough medicine and apple cider without the sweetness. The aftertaste seems to have bitter cardboard mixed with raisins - not bad. I kind of liked this guy even though the average score is not that high. Thanks Indiana_Red for sharing the fruit of your trip the Mecca Northwest! jake65 (4000) - Meridian, Idaho, USA - JUL 11, 2007
Bottle: Musty copper brown with a smaller head. Nose is mild of fruits and malty sweetness. Flavor is fruity with citrus and apple. A bit on the sweet side, but still good. Thanks Buckdich.

Bomber from Safeway, Port Angeles; Nose of caramel and raisin pie with a very light vanilla note; clear amber with a big, glass-lacing beige head; flavor is toasty with brown sugar and a very light smokiness. Odeed (1806) - Bakersfield, California, USA - OCT 8, 2008
ruby red with not much head.aroma is lemon zest,caramel malts,grapefruit,cotton candy,and brown sugar.flavor is much of the same with a slightly thin body. Shag (3045) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - MAY 26, 2008
This is one of those beers you arent really sure what they are going for. A copper color on this one. The aroma contains some grapefruit, lemons, but also a bit of maltiness like caramel and biscuit showing. The flavor is sweet and malty with some grapefruit, lemons, toffee, and caramel. Not horrible but not great either. jercraigs (10886) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 23, 2008
2008-09-17. Hazy dark amber body with a larger long lasting beige head and lacing. Nice citrusy aroma with awesome fresh smelling oranges and tangerines (8+) have me rather excited to taste it, only to be let down. Odd flavour at first. Tart-bitter hops character, an odd tangy with a kiss of alcohol in the finish. Brief highlights echo the citrus of the aroma but they are disappointingly intermittent. Average palate on the thin side. Odd, has its moments. Numbers came out high because I liked the aroma, but I probably would have put this a touch lower overall. <i>Bottle shared by Blankboy</i> mabel (9787) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 31, 2008
[1712-20080917] 22floz bottle. Fruity hops and some light apple skins aroma. Hazy, dark orange brown body with a long-lasting foamy light tan head. Citrus tangerine juice flavour has a mild floral tang finish. Medium body. Mild oldness but no proof of date.
<i>Overheard: "There’s no proof [of the date] except for that chunk at the bottom." "Mmm, chunky."</i>
