Bomber, no date to be found.
Pours a hazy copper with a massive head due to overcarbonation. Kind of tough to pour. Great clumpy lacing, and, of course, retention.
The aroma is clean and bready-malty, with some spicy hops.
Really big malt flavor, though a bit too much for a classic Altbier, not that this beer is trying to be that. Lots of toasted bread crusts, with a very restrained sweetness. Hop flavor and bitterness are spot-on for the style: firmly bitter and earthy. Mouthfeel is somewhat overcarbonated, and persists almost to the end of the bottle.
Second bottle from RT that has been overcarbonated and a bitch to pour. Oh well. Flavor's great though. Lots of potential for this new Portland brewer.
