3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bomber from Liquid Solutions. Bready aroma backed by noble hop. Tarnished golden color with a white head that collapsed quickly. Medium body with light creamy carbonation. The flavor is a bit biscuit/butterscotch with nice noble/grassy hop. It has substance. It is not a wimpy, watery pils. The finish is a butterscotch note with an appropriate amount of hop. This is a unique product.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
22 oz bottle via Liquid Sol. Pours a clear gold with a large white head. Nose is subtle lager yeast and saaz hops. Taste tries to start sweet, but quickly turns biscuity, almost toffeeish, and then the saaz hops kick in...lots of saaz hoppiness, some grassiness, and a bit of a metallic aftertaste. This is nowhere near as smooth as the Kulbacher Pils i just had, but is is just as good in a much bolder way. Not as sessionable, but hoppiliciously drinkable! Carbonation is high, body is medium. A very good Pils. One of the best i have had.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Appearance: Pours a clear, pale yellow body with a thin white head.
Smell: Scant pils malt aroma with a meager handful of Noble hops tossed in and a bit of lemon.
Taste: Pils malt flavor, though with very little sweetness. Thin Saaz hop flavor with just a bit of bitterness. A handful of lemons in the finish. Pretty lacking overall.
Mouthfeel: Light-bodied (a bit too light). Moderate carbonation.
Drinkability: A pretty basic pilsener, there are many others that exhibit far more razzle-dazzle and/or refinement.

very floral and grassy. Nice grainy malt base, somewhat biscuity. Subdued tartness present from a lemon addition. A little too thin without enough character to make it interesting. Good, would be very rrefreshing on a hot day.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
[Bottle, thanks Skyview] Pours a really, really unusual color--Stine nailed it when he said it looked like ginger ale--with a small white head atop it. Virtually no aroma. Taste is grainy with very little going on with it. Water thin mouthfeel. Really quite an unpleasant, and strange beer.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 16/20
I’ve been wanting to try this for a long time! INTENSELY floral, huge grass component to flavor. Aroma is flowers and pencil shavings. Some sourdough bread type malt. A little thin, but very flavorful. Weird color: it might be the lighting or perhaps a flashback, but the yellow is tinged with pink! I have no idea what is up there. I could drink a ton of this. Quite good. Bomber from LiquidSoultions.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Purchased a single 22-oz bomber from Liquid Solutions in Oregon. Pours an unusual very light and clear White Zinfandel peach with a fast dissolving off-white head that dissipates clean. Aroma of light sourdough bread, grassy hops, a touch of lemon zest, and American yellow cheese. Taste is a watery biscuit flavor, light to medium bodied with some carbonation with light flavors of corn grits, lemon zest and a touch of toffee. Finish is light, slightly watery with an aftertaste of sourdough bread and lemon zest. One of the strangest pilsener beers I’ve tried.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Won a recent Brewing News reader’s choice award and gave it a try on draught. Not particularly impressive in any department. Pale hue lacks a certain depth of color but there is some lacing and a decent head. Aroma is clean hop and grain and invitingly aromatic. Flavors disappoint after that. Thin and lacking complexity, hop character, or anything that would have me coming back for more. Mouthfeel is not entertaining. It does finish clean but is pretty boring beer.
