COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A dry hopped American Rye Pilsener. Obey the siren song of the mythological Coney Island Mermaid. Four spicy hops flow into seven golden malts. Perfect as a momentary distraction, or equally enchanting as a parade towards deeper delights. When beer tastes this good, and you donít have scurvy, you donít need a lime!

Pours golden with a white head. Aroma is grain and grassy hops. Flavor is malty, grainy, spicy rye, with a hoppy bitter finish.

Bomber from BOTW (Rochester), shared with GRM and Lubiere, served cold in a tulip glass. 05AU11.

App.: Clear very deep golden/light amber with a white rim. Aroma: A good whiff of apple juice, grainy, dusty, other vague fruits, sort of an odd bitter note, maybe lightly floral and perfumed, slight spiciness, a bit tight. Palate: Medium body and effervescence. Flav.: Quite fruity, perfumed, a bit of rye spiciness, some floral hops, grainy, almost mashy, cooked cereal, better than the nose, dry with decent bitterness and a perfumed, apple finish.

its got a nice clean palate with a lot of flavor. I can however taste the brewing water. malts and hops are nicely balance with a hint of spiciness. mouthfeel with nice and full. a good thirst quencher.

The aroma is malty, hoppy, and slightly yeasty. There are notes of biscuits, corn, flowers, soap, and cake. The appearance is golden with a large head. The taste is pretty simple with just bitter hops and bread like malt. The palate is average. Overall a pretty good beer but not wonderful.

[Tap] Pours a bright golden color with a nice cap of white head. Grassy nose features fresh, crisp hops and clean grains. The taste is surprisingly true to style for a North German pilsner. Grassy bitterness is mixed with an touch of astringency. Lively carbonation. The rye malt provided a nice kick that blended well with the hop profile. Tasty and unique.

I really need to try to set aside style designation here when I try to rate this, but it will be difficult considering that this is nowhere close to being a pils, aside from the fact that it is a lager - "hey guys, letís make a beer with seven different malts (two of which are rye) and four hops (none of which are typically associated with pilsners) and market it as a pils" - fuck that - the beauty of a pils is in its simplicity, guys - anyway - hazy straw - aroma is light honey, toasted grains, light Vienna richness, lightly spicy rye - flavor is strongly husky/grainy and moderately bitter - earthy, American hop profile - a honey sweetness through the tail end and finish - herbal, tea-like character - too much apparent alcohol in the finish - drinkable, with no glaring flaws, but NOT a pilsner.

Sampled on 6/10/2011. This pilsner pours a medium orange gold color from a 120z bottle. Small to medium sized white foamy head. The aroma is cereal and grassy, fruity and slightly sweet. A medium bodied pilsner. The malts are cereal and grainy. The hops are earthy and spicy. Lively carbonation. A decent pilsner, it doesnít seem to have any of those adjunct flavors. Crisp and clean tasting. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and crisp. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

Pours cloudy gold with good effervescence & pillowy white head. Medium basement & hay aromas; medium-bodied with grain and hay flavors & malty ovetones but good effervesence. Nice balance, good finish. Not as crisp as some pilsners, but thatís probably why I like it.
