beerguy101 (5319) - Newark, California, USA - JAN 15, 2011
Sampled on 1/15/2011. This pale lager pours a light gold color from a 22oz bottle. Small to medium sized white foamy head. The aroma is grainy, spicy and sweet with a touch of corn. A medium to light bodied pale lager. The malts are bready, cereal and slightly sweet. The hops are floral and spicy. Lively carbonation. It’s a pale lager, and there are some adjuncts here, but this is a very light, refreshing and flavorful beer. Crisp and clean, with a nice lively mouthfeel and a crisp dry finish. Very drinkable and would be a great beer on a hot day. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean, crisp and dry. Aftertaste is slightly bitter, with a little bit of residual sweetness. I like this one a lot.

DarkElf (3038) - La Jolla, California, USA - JAN 8, 2011
23-Nov-10 (22-oz bottle: Purchased 26-Aug-10 for $3.99 at the Pizza Port Bottle Shop in Carlsbad, CA) This beer is what it is: an easy-drinking, pale-colored lager, but that’s not to say it’s like drinking your favorite 30-pack of mass-produced swill. It is straw colored, slightly hazy, and is capped by an inch of white, fluffy head that settles routinely to a wafer-thin layer. Malty aromas of soured grains, bread, and corn dominate, but hops are very light. That same suggestion of sourness in the nose is evident in the sourdough-like flavor, but this adds to the refreshing quality of the beer, keeping it from weighing down under the bready flavors. White bread, sweet corn and grains set the base while hops offer a touch of grassy flavor and very gentle bitterness. Clean and gently crisp on the palate, light in body, but not watery, wonderfully refreshing, and the carbonation is medium-high, but soft instead of prickly. This is not a beer that’s ever going to blow anyone away, but on a warm summer day, or even if you’re just thirsty for easy-drinking beer, this works great. A nice change of pace in today’s market of extreme beer.

Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - DEC 27, 2010
Bomber. Pours a golden body with a white head. Thin crisp and grain y with a light apple and earth citrus note. Sweet with a light hop character. Very basic and probably quite refreshing after a good mow, to bad there is 2 feet of snow outside, oh well.

nickd717 (3601) - San Francisco, California, USA - OCT 14, 2010
Bomber from K&L. Pours a bright clear yeller color with a one-finger-plus white head that has good retention for the style. The aroma is corny and grassy, like a mowed lawn oddly enough. Grainy pale malt is big with this one. The flavor is like a better version of BMC. Really grainy pale malt, probably some adjunk, and just not enough flavor overall. Slight hop notes. Clean and crisp on the palate with medium-high carbonation. Only slight wateriness. This is good for the style, sure, but I just can’t say I’m really a big fan overall. I think this style is somewhat of a joke, and this just doesn’t measure up to a great pilsner or helles lager.

Unibonger (163) - Mount Shasta, California, USA - OCT 12, 2010
UPDATED: OCT 15, 2010 22oz. Pours a very clear light golden with white thin head that has good retention. Aroma is mostly corn and/or grass like. Very thin grainy flavor, not as much notes of corn/grass as I expected to be there. Low carbonation, thin body, slick texture.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - OCT 1, 2010
Bottle: Clear yellow with an average white head. The nose is toasty with a light touch of hops. The flavor has a fairly malty body with a nice dose of diacetyl which might seem a little bad, but it adds to the otherwise thin flavor and body. Not bad! Finishes clean, nice lager.

lithy (2996) - Capital of Appalachia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 1, 2010
Golden yellow, white foam. Aroma is light corn, a touch of metal, vanilla sweetness. Taste is more sweet, light vanilla, a bit of corn, but otherwise pleasant.

bhensonb (12134) - Woodland, California, USA - SEP 24, 2010
Bomber from Malt & Vine. Pours light gold with a foamy white head. Aroma is slightly bready and mildly grassy. Medium body with moderate carbonation. Flavor is light malt, with a little (very little) spicy hop. There’s a bit of paper when the liquid flows away, but it is decently bitter. Spiceily so? Tettnang? Definitely drinkable.
