3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle… Yellow to light golden ale with a mid-sized, creamy, white head. Great retention. The nose is musky, fruity and doughy. Full-bodied and slick with buzzing carbonation. Nods toward the sweet side of balance, but just barely – otherwise, bland. Crisp, lightly bitter, grassy finish.

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!

"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."

Bottle as shown. Pours a cloudy yellow gold with a medium frothy off white head that lasts awhile leaving sticky lacing. The aroma is wheat, bubblegum and citrus. Thick mouthfeel with a bitter malt with banana and a bitter finish. A decent pils from Abita.

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

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.
