On tap at World of Beer, Wauwatosa, WI. Brownish-orange pour with a creamy khaki head. Mildly sweet aroma but honestly not much comes through in the aroma. The taste is malt-forward with toasted graham cracker and biscuits with just enough hop presence to keep it from being too sweet and cloying. Nice beer for whati s typically a boring style. mambossa (337) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - OCT 9, 2015
Bomber from brewpub dated 9/23/15. Pours a deep red amber with nice retaining head. Nose of rich, sweet, toasty toffee malt, bread, and a hint of juicy hops. Flavor is hoppy stone fruits and light foliage with a nice warm roasted malt structure. Substantial mouthfeel. If this were more frequent around my area, it would be a great go-to. Good stuff for sure. zach8270 (4022) - Henrietta, New York, USA - OCT 8, 2015
(draft @ Sergio’s World Beers - Louisville, KY) Orange pour with a thin white head. Mild malt aroma with a hint of sweetness, but I couldn’t tell it was apricot. Flavor is bready and malty with a mild hop finish. Slightly fruity. [9/10/15] ryanscourt (1476) - Latrobe, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 5, 2015
UPDATED: OCT 8, 2015 Told this was the best esb in the country at the brew pub. Took home a bottle and i agree. AndyReynolds (1085) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 3, 2015
Bottle. One of the better ESBs I have had for shizzle. Good, subtle citrus notes. Solid beer. Superspak has unfortunately not rated this beer yet.

Bomber poured medium hazy amber with a huge foamy head and lacing. Aromas of fig, citrus, apricot, and biscuit. Medium bitter flavor. Very nice ESB. beerbaaron (1998) - Arizona, USA - SEP 3, 2015
Deep amber with a great big frothy off-white head. Description sums it up perfectly, complex malty and apricot hoppiness. Why rehash? Some floral. Medium body. Mild to moderate clean bitterness. A good example of FFF at its best. Good balance, well rounded, interesting, full of flavor. I certainly wouldn’t mind this as a regular option. Top quality and really well-made and enjoyable.

Strong apricot, bitters, hops taste and aroma. Smooth, high quality taste without any unpleasant bitterness at the end...though there is a considerable amount of bitterness throughout the middle end of the taste. jkwood04 (5448) - Connecticut, USA - JUL 12, 2015
22oz bottle in a taster glass. Pours amber with a lacy, off-white head. Aroma of pale and caramel malts, some floral hops, and light dough and hints of spices. Flavor the same with a nice blend. Average texture. Not a bad beer but not my favorite style. Beerathon (1683) - Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 23, 2015
Burnt orange pour with semi-creamy white froth. Sweet malts, apricot/stone fruit notes, orange marmalade, soft carbonation, full mouthfeel, perfect amount of bitterness. Very tasty version of an ESB.
