bomber from grape & gourmet, VA Beach
a: bomber into a reuben’s snifter, a khaki head falling back to a placid surface, the beer itself a copper amber in color
s: caramel malt, sweet tea spiked with herbal lemon and a touch of mint, some steeped mustiness, oily lemon rind, hops of moderate strength, earthy citrus
m: carbonation on the lighter side, medium bodied
t: caramel malt sweetness in sweet tea steeped with lemon and herbs, toasty caramel through the middle, begins to dry well into the finish and lingers long with a tannic herbal bitterness, growing with each sip
o: not a huge fan of the tealike character, everything seems a bit muddled and the bitter, leafy tannic nature overwhelms and detracts, old lemon, comes across more like old iced tea than a good dipa
