Bomber from Casa De Oro. Muted grainy nose with a hint of yeast. Fairly grassy with a decent hop flavor. Decent malt balance and a fairly clean hoppy finish.

This is a flavorful beer with a little bitterness. It gets major bonus points in my book for being a charitable beer also. Well worth the money just for the beer but it's even better because the profits go to a good cause.

Golden yellow with a big white foam head. Aroma of yeast and grain. A little grassy herbal hop flavor but itís faint in this bottle. Nice pils but I doubt Iíd buy it again

I really like the idea of this beer from the description, I just wish they had picked a different style. It tastes like a cheap lager to me, though it is at the upper end of that distribution. Itís slightly skunky like a lot of lagers, but is milder in everything, making it palatable.

Slightly hazy goldeny orange colour with a white fluffy head, that leaves some lace. Aroma is bready malts, mild grainyness along with soe floral and slight citrusy notes as well. Flavour is bready, but quite sweet malts along with some citrus and floral notes. Ends quite herbal and hoppy. Mild alcohol sweetness as it warms up, but otherwise pleasant imperial pils.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Light hazy gold, large white head, adequate lacing. Aroma is malt, honey citrus. Light bitter and light sweetness. Medium body, spicy grain, light citrus. Flavor is a little bland but the balance of bitter/sweet is OK.
Finishes with a little bitter citrus.

There are very few wheat beers that I can get into. This is not one of them. Granted, itís only partially wheat malt, but itís enough to throw this off for me. Not bitter enough and with enough of that funky banana hefe taste that I can safely say I donít care for this. Still, Iím trying to rate on quality more than personal taste. As an Imperial (ish) pilsener, this falls pretty damn flat. Not flavorful, hoppy or bitter enough.

Bottle at the St. Paul Summer Beer Fest. Yellow pour, huge white head. Yeast on the nose and taste, some wheat in here. Enjoyable brew.
