650ml bomber purchased at Belmont Station in Portland, OR pours a pale amber color with a finger of white head that leaves some decent lacing. Aroma is caramel and cereal grains with some citrus and floral notes. Taste is light citric hop bitterness over a solid malty sweet backbone. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. A nicely done American classic pale ale that is quite tasty. bhensonb (15191) - Woodland, California, USA - JUN 14, 2012
Bomber from PC Market of Choice in Ashland. Pours light copper with a creamy/bubbly white head. Smells a bit of light pitted fruit. Approaching med body. Flavor seems to have significant diacetyl. But there’s various fruit and mildly roasted malt to sort of cover for that. Barring the one problem it’s pretty refreshing. Rerate: With time the diacetyl thing sort of diminished. So I’m adding a point. Gooney (389) - Portland, Oregon, USA - AUG 13, 2011
22oz bottle from Ray’s in Sisters - Pours golden-orange. A bit skunky smelling. Tastes much better than it smells. I’ll have another, please. cmonster (1000) - Portland, Oregon, USA - FEB 22, 2011
Bomber served in an English pint. Pours clear honey orange with a short off-white head. Good retention and good sticky lacing. Mild floral and fruit aroma. Light-medium bitter flavor. Medium body, thick-creamy texture, soft carbonation, and a mellow malty-bitter finish. Very sessionable. Beardface (1517) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - NOV 15, 2010
Bottle from Market of Choice. Pours amber with a white head and sporadic lacing. Smells of floral hops and caramel malt, tastes of much the same. Fairly thin bodied and a little musty tasting.

22oz Bomber – The Bier Shoppe – Eugene, OR rmussman (1701) - California, USA - JUL 10, 2010
Golden clear in color. Nice light aroma with a good balance of hops and malts. A great hot day mowing the lawn beer. Crisp finish with a dry mouthfeel.
Sampled in a 22oz bottle from Market of Choice in Eugene. Drank from the bottle at room temperature while camping. Pours very pale light brown. Aroma is pretty sweet. Overall the brew is pretty good for such a small brewery. Worth a try if you can find it. Nicely done! andyhwcinc (1884) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 2, 2010
Purchased in bomber form in Portland, OR, enjoyed in Seattle on vacation. Appearance is a cloudy gold with a thin white head. Aroma is an equal balance of malt & hop. Taste is an equal balance of hops & malt, kinda thin. It’s just OK. hoptimist (99) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUN 18, 2010
Toasty malt smell with just a hint of citrus from hops. Pours a nice copper gold color with a nice standing head that leaves some subtle lacing on glass. Fairly clear with medium carbonation. Nice medium+ hop bitterness up front with good malt backbone to balance, then more bitterness on back. Medium body, somewhat creamy texture with medium carbonation and a bitter and only subtly astringent fairly long finish. Nice drinkable beer and at 5.5% would be fairly sessionable. Anxious to try more from this brewery. riversideAK (6261) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - MAY 3, 2010
Nose has caramel malts, a touch of crystal malt, earthy hop notes and light citrus notes. Pours darker amber with a decently lasting creamy head and lace. More caramel, light tea notes, earthy hops, light floral and citrus notes as well. Bitterness is light. Tends to lean towards balanced with an almost heavier mouth feel than most in the style.
