3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pale lager yes, imperial pilsner no. Malty, Saaz hops. A little funky and malty aroma. Yellowish body. Rather minimal taste of malts, with drying, slight bitterness in the finish. A drop of lemon. Passable beer.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
650ml bottle to a 20cl peroni glass. Crystal clear golden pour, really nice looking white head. Beaut of a beer. Aroma is water, grain, and herbal hops. Wheat can be detected in the much sweeter than typical pils. It is a style that I despise but this one remains airy and light despite the heavy sweetness. Just make the same beer, lower the abv by 2% and put it in 6 packs even though this was only a 4$ bomber.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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

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.

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.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Slightly hazy, bright yellow gold, huge long-lasting white head. Grainy and wheaty with hints of lemon and dried grass. Nicely bitter finish. Solid effort.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
"An ok pilsner with grassy hops and hay, but like G said, lacking the pleasant crispness and a little sweet leaning. For $4.50, it’s about twice the price per ounce i’d want to pay for something like this, and wouldn’t again."
