3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
This beer pours a pale yellow color with a medium thick and pillowy white head that evaporates slowly. Patches of lacing on the glass. The aroma consists of wheat, spice and malt. Medium body with flavors of bready malt, mild spices, wheat and a touch of hops. The finish is malty with a sweet aftertaste. Decent overall.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hazy golden pour with a thick white head. The nose is very herbal and grassy. A little bit of light lemon peel. Fairly zesty and spicy although it has faded a little bit. Nice crackery malt base with a little bit breadiness. Fresh and hoppy with a lot of assertive grassy bitterness. Pretty damn solid stuff. Warming really brings up a lot of lovely fresh hoppiness. Good stuff.

2011-04-17. Crisp neon yellow, small frothy white head and lace. Mild aroma is pleasantly hoppy and lightly grassy. 6+ Flavour is similarly mild, pale malt with modest grassy hops. 6+ Average palate. Alcohol is surprisingly restrained for the abv. Okay. Bottle shared by Radek

22 oz bottle. BB 09/10/13. (Stein’s Deli) New Orleans, LA.
Clear pale golden colour with a small frothy white head.
Yeast, grassy hops and wheaty malt in the aroma.
Yeast, wheat and grassy hops in the flavour. Pilsnery. Not bad but a bit boring. But absolutely for a good cause. Thumbs up!

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
22oz. Only $4, a really impressive price considering, especially considering the 75c donation. I only thought this was OK, though. Had a sort of unnecessary bite to it. Clear light yellow color, very minimal white head. Nice light crisp carbonation. A lagery pilsner aroma with an evident alcohol bite. Some spice. Sort of an acidic lemon citrus acidic taste. Kind of a light sweetness, some bitterness. In my notes I mention that "I feel like I can taste the ’imperialness’". It was good for what it was, but I had rated a bit too many beers last night to finish the last bit of this. Fortunately the bit that I wasted was so relatively inexpensive. I wish more bombers sold at the $4 price-point.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle thanks to Sarah! Pours a near clear gold with a large white head that lasts throughout and laces slightly. Aroma has a a good amount of citrus with a nice light grain backing. Flavor also has a decent amount of citrus (orange peel) in the beginning with a nice grain and cereal finish.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours with a clear golden body and a white head. Aroma of hay, grain, bread and notable spicy/nearly citrus hops. A little bit of alcohol. Taste is dry, grain and bread with lingering bitterness. Not too much hop flavor just a decent amount of bitterness. Pretty bland but not offensive. Maybe the lightest hint of diacetyl. Somewhat rounded or slick mouthfeel, medium bubbles. Not bad, just bland.
