3.55/5 rDev +2.6%
bomber from WFM Vienna
a: poured into a dfh curved pint, the action gives a frothy off-white head that falls to a splotchy coating, the beer itself a lightly hazed amber in color
s: simple pale malt nose with undertones of toasted bread and caramel, mild earthy hop nose of the english/scottish type, a vague note of apple juice, mineral, clean
m: carbonation moderate and lively, light to medium in body
t: clean pale malts with touches of toast and caramel, quite dry with a mineral essence, mildy flavored woody hops impart a finishing bitterness
o: in the same vein as an english ipa - simple malt structure with a mild, balancing hop in a low abv package, a fine beer that does what it’s supposed to well, but not of particular interest to me

3.48/5 rDev +0.6%
A - hazy, golden orange, light effervescence, decent lacing sticking to glass, 1" head, almost no retention once it settles
S - mild hoppiness, faint hint of skunk aroma (think green bottles), touch of rye, very muted. May need to warm up.
T - grassy, nice hop presence, citrus lingering on the backend along
M - medium-bodied with light carbonation, dry finish
O - for a session beer, I was very pleased. Light and crisp. For what it is, at $4 a bomber, I'd drink this again.

I am always excited to try a well-made, session-able ale, and this one does not disappoint. Bomber from the brewery poured into a nonic pint, this is bright, golden orange with just the right amount of carbonation. Taste is of floral hops with some mild bitterness. There's also a nice citrus quality to the finish that further enhances its drrinkability.
Edited to add: This is not a Scottish ale, its a British IPA or session IPA.

Tap at magnolias
Nice fluffy head hits 1+ fingers then fades semi quickly, hazy peach orange color.
Nose fresh grassy floral hops, little fruity and earthy, light chewy hops, light sweet aromatic malts too, toasty juicy, nice aromatic profile.
Taste brings fruit flavors, fruity hops with a light grassy floral character. Then a tea flavor, fruity tea like flavor, nice bitterness that's fairly mild, slight earthy chewy hop. Some slightly sweet toasty amber malts. Finish is drier but semi sticky with a decent grassy hop bitterness.
Mouth is med bod, decent carb.
Overall not bad, nothing special but nothing great.

3.08/5 rDev -11%
A: Pours a solid orange hue with a thin white lace that leaves no trail or lace.
S: Malty aroma that is just slightly hoppy.
T: Similar to the smell there is a good malty base with hints of mild hops in the background.
M: Medium body and medium carbonation.
O: This was a very disappointing beer – nothing I would grab again.
