Bomber Brewing Co. – Cinder Ale Smoked Altbier Review

Bomber Brewing Cinder Ale Review The latest in the lineup of Bomber Brewing’s East Vancouver lineup of craft beer is a fairy tale come true in the form of the Cinder Ale. Dubbed as the “Official Beer of an East Van Panto” this smoked Altbier is just what the doctor ordered as the days of Winter have landed upon us. From the Bomber bottle the Cinder Ale pours a clear amber colour with two fingers of tight and lacing head. From this beer comes a mid-sweet aroma of caramel and beech-wood smoke. The smokiness is rather strong but light enough to let the caramel notes sneak through. On the tongue the Cinder Ale is crisp and fresh with a fairly light body. The flavour is smoke heavy with a crisp and light sweetness in the beginning. As the flavour progresses the caramel tones diminish and leave way for a bitter-smoke, dry finish. The Cinder Ale is a rather smokey Altbier with a touch of sweetness and a crispness in the body. If you like smoke but want something that is still light, crisp and refreshing then this may just be the beer for you!
