3.3/5  rDev -2.1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

Beautiful pour with deep red hues, amber, and off white head. Nose is a delight with candied fruits and a clean biscuity/bready component. Nose is my favorite aspect of this ale. Palate offers a nice balance between a slightly candied malt sweetness with smooth fruity hop components, some floral stuff too, and a medium body. Hop tickle towards the end and through the aftertaste. New Bomber size from Total Wine.

look: 3.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Poured from a can into a nonic pint.

A - Clear reddish copper, with a one finger off white head of tiny bubbles. Specks of lacing.

S - Moderate strength aroma of caramel malts, hint of herbal hop leaf.

T - Caramel malts forward with just enough earthy hop to bring balance. Malt and hop bills work well together. Not terribly complex but flavorful.

M - Fuller side of medium bodied, medium carbonation, with a hint of creaminess. Mouth feel works very well for the style.

O - A very solid offering from Lumberyard. Richer and more flavorful than its ABV would indicate. Would buy again.

3.53/5  rDev +4.7%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

The beer is transparent with a copper body. An inch or so of creamy, off-white head sits on top. The aroma brings sweet breads, fruit, malt. Hop character emerges more in the flavor than the aroma, offering a light bitterness mid to late palate. Subtle pine and resin amid a fruity, slightly sweet malt bill. Light to medium in body with soft carbonation. Pretty drinkable.

3.28/5  rDev -2.7%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3

A: Thick white head. Foam stuck to the sides of the glass all the way down. Dark red to malt brown. Light on the bubbles.

S: Sweet. Pine and tree sap. Slightly floral.

T: Sweet up front again. A hoppy backbone comes in and finishes with leather and mahogany.

M: A bit thick and chewy. On the dry side. Could benefit from more crispness to clean the palate. Slight metallic/mineral aftertaste.

O: Just didn't work for me. Too dry. Not very refreshing and not nearly enough crispness. Bought this can on a trip to Phoenix, I liked all the beers from the Four Peaks taster tray better.
