look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

True to its name in color , clear with a fair off white collection of ringside bubbles on top. Lacing is decent as well, somewhat if a scattered marbled look. The taste is a funky skunk malt with a bit of spicy herbal hop bitterness. There's a fermented fruit suggestion in there but overall it's just a good old German brew with a little bite that goes down easy but not entirely quietly. The feel is of a subtle but certain brisk tang for the tip of you tongue on a medium- light bodied brew. Very nice and an understandable flagship.

22 ounce bomber -> Samuel Adams Perfect Pint Glass

A - Stunningly beautiful. Lucious copper appearance with nice beige head, world class, retention, world class lacing.

S - The nose is kind of weak. I mostly got the smell of grasses.

T - a little smoky, a little rye, kind of a wonderful under control bitter grassy finish.

M - very pleasing with good carbonation.

O - I figured I would like this, but I had no idea I'd like it as much as I did. Awesome stuff.

Bomber into a tulip. 7/19/13 bottling date so extremely fresh

Pours a dark copper color with a nice, fizzy head. Lots of tiny bubbles in this beer too, very eye appealing. The smell is smokey and hoppy. Very strong aroma. The taste is similar to the scent. Its crisp with a good amounts of hops, and a tad of rye smokiness on the back end. Tastes fresh. Super easy to drink, not too light bodied either. Youd guess 6 or 7% ABV. Very enjoyable.

Overall just a great enjoyable beer right here. I didnt know it would be a german style and flavor before opening it, i was expecting just a regular american amber. Pleasantly surprised. Will gladly return to this.
