COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We always wanted to make a year-round German-style Pilsner. Both because it tastes great and it’s a favorite of ours. We import bagged German Pilsner malt and manually add 3,300 pounds to each batch because we believe that’s what it takes to make a great German pilsner. We source all Hallertau Hersbrucker hops, which we prize for their mix of floral and “Noble” notes. Then we wait. This beer is unfiltered, so we rely on natural lagering techniques (i.e. long times and cold temperatures) to get this beer as bright as sunshine.

mixmasterob (942) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - APR 2, 2015
Bottle thanks to GCurlow. Love a good pils. Poured slightly hazy, golden with a fizzy white head. Aroma was grainy, bready malt with some grassy, floral hops. Touch of citrus. Flavors were grainy with some grass and cereal malts. Nice crisp finish, slight bitterness. Good pils.

Bomber from Beer Authority

Light gold pour with a white head into my outward-curving pilsner glass. Bready nose with a bit of grass. Flavor is richer than expected with plenty of lemon peel and a substantial Hallertau hop kick. More bread. Fairly prickly. A bit heavier than expected but darn tasty. A big pils but fairly a fairly honest one. I’d repeat this happily.

Bottle - Slight cloudy hay color. It looks like hay and also smells a little like hay and grain. Taste was like a typical pilsner with move of a sweet flavor.

vyvvy (4580) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - FEB 7, 2015
Pours bright clear yellow with a white head. The aroma is very malty for a pils with doughy pils malt which is rich for the style and some herbal hoppiness. It has a medium / light body that is fairly smooth and has light carbonation. The flavor starts off with dry saltine crackers, malt, some sulfur, herbs and pepper. The finish has dried grass added. Decent pils.

Lagerboy (1508) - British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 22, 2014
Bomber, as Breakside Liquid Sunshine Pilsner. Clear pale straw, white foam settles and lasts. Floral citrus aroma. Taste is quite floral, lemony citrus, mild pils malt, soapy. Average carbonation, light bodied, lightly hopped. Dry. LF (Lagerboy Friendly)

notalush (5269) - Denver, Colorado, USA - NOV 20, 2014
Bomber - pours a lightly hazy gold - impressive lace - lively body - nose is big time diacetyl, with some floral hops and a mineral note underneath - soft mouthfeel, creamy carbonation - the diacetyl isn’t as potent in the flavor, but is still present - underneath that it seems like there is a mighty fine pils hiding - medium sweet pils malt, grassy hops, a mineral bite - the diacetyl just totally ruins this.
