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.

Draft pour listed as liquid sunshine at special brews. Pours a light yellow with a faint malt aroma. Very mild flavor. A little corn there. A little sweet. Decent summer beer here.

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 (4625) - 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 (1538) - 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)

bhensonb (12322) - Woodland, California, USA - OCT 16, 2014
Bomber from Made in Oregon. Pours translucent lemon/gold with a foamy white head. Aroma of fruit and mild earth/spice. Med body. Flavor is fruity/lemon with earth/spice. It’s pretty flavorful. Hops tend to hide the breadiness very well. Although it finishes less than dry, it works well. Oh so much tastier than the Mittel Europa pils. Well, maybe PU excepted. :)

maxwelldeux (4160) - Snohomish, Washington, USA - AUG 3, 2014
Draught into a growler. Pours a hazy golden color with a rather thick white head on there. Nose is filled with a lot of corn and little else for me. Taste has quite a bit of corn, and a bit of skunk, almost like this is really old. Not a great beer.

notalush (5328) - 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.

Oakes (13454) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 17, 2014
Rich gold, abundant herbal hops on the nose, the palate having some brighter citrus hops (all hersbrucker, though, apparently). There seems like maybe some of the heavier malt/hop dynamic of a pilsner that contrasts with this dynamic. So it’s nice, but also a bit odd.
