Clear amber colored ale with a small white colored head.

Smells malty with some burnt sugar and caramel. Strange hop aroma Earl Grey tea basically Bergamot orange.

Starts out sweet with mostly a caramel taste. Slightly smoky with some tea flavor. Not that strongly flavored. Bitterness is mild.

Mouthfeel is OK.

Overall very much a middle of the road ale.

Pours a clear amber color in the tall glass. Long lasting foam makes for an attractive appearance. Big nose of resins. A nice sudsy mouthful.

Very light body with just a little malty sweetness. Just a little of the "lite" beer taste of odd dry graininess. Plentiful hoppy flavors. Finishes with a modest bitterness. The flowery hop aroma delights with every sip. Overall this is quite quaffable in its lightweight way, though not really a great Pale Ale. It might be pleasant on tap.

From the 22 oz bottle bought at Emigration Market in Salt Lake.

22oz. Bomber

Pours a nice cloudy golden orange color, nice carbonation, little fizzy off-white head, with some sticky lacing left behind. The nose is mostly malty, very slight hop note, also lots of floral. The taste is nice, malty, slight hop note, not much citrus at all. Medium body, nice little dry/bitter finish. This is not a typical Pale Ale, too malty/floral, nice, but to me does not cut it as a typical Pale Ale. A nice thirst quencher tough.

Pretty light pale ale. It poured a murky copper/deep orange color with a creamy white head; sticky lace on the glass; pretty good retention; smelled citrusy with some light floral hops; it was pretty light and watery in the body which is good for throwing back a few bombers; thirst quenching for a hot high desert day. Initially, the front end was floral, citrus, and sweet; the back end was piney and slightly bitter/dry, with a balance of caramel and toffee malt notes. Overall, it was an above average pale ale that I would drink again.
