Notes/Commercial Description:
Each Halloween we release this special concoction to celebrate one of our favorite holidays. Deep blood-red in color, an intense aroma of pine and citrus from an abundance of American hops balances the sweetness and rich, bready flavors of this beer's caramel malts. The result is a fiendishly smooth brew that will make your taste buds scream with delight.

This beer pairs excellently with toffee, caramel apples, or your favorite horror flick.

Clear red colored ale with a tall yellow colored head. This is a unique head color.

Smell is sweet and hoppy. Mostly citrus scents. Scents of wood, orange, lemon and willow tree. Under all that hop aroma there is a caramel malt backbone.

Starts out mildly sweet and more malty than the scent would suggest. Strong tea flavor with a little cork taste. Despite the scent this doesn't hit the tongue like a Hop Hammer. The flavor is more malt and oak than hop. Bitterness is mild.

Mouthfeel is OK.

Overall this is OK. But don't expect the best beer Alesmith makes.

Bomber from Bear World Watertown NY for $8

Appearance - Reddish Brown colour with an average size beige coloured head. There is an average amount of carbonation showing and there is some good lacing. The head lasted for around 3-4 minutes before it was gone.

Smell - Malts, hops, caramel, apricots, pineapple

Taste & Mouth - There is a below average amount of carbonation and I can taste malts, caramel, and quite a bit of hops. There is also some apricots, pineapple, and a bit of grapefruit.

Overall - Another winner from Alesmith. A tad pricey perhaps for a repeat purchase, but very well crafted and definitely worth trying once.
