COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
UFO experts claim that this element combined with another element make UFOs fly. A true American style beer made with lager yeast fermented at warmer ale temperatures gives this beer a slight fruity character yet remains crisp and refreshing. What kind of beer is it? It depends on whom you ask. Some will call it a West Coast lager, some a California Common and other still will say amber hybrid. We hopped this beer with four different west coast varieties of hops, Northern Brewer, Cluster, Simcoe and Mt. Hood.

Bomber. Dark amber with minimal head. Malty, light caramel, grassy hops. Taste is very mildly bitter. Medium to lighter body with a soapy feel. Simple beer, would be a good summer beer.

On cask at Firkin Fest. Easy drinking and refreshing, this hit the spot on a hot afternoon. But only good for sessions.

One of my all time favorite beers. I was very sad to here this beer was being demoted to seasonal status. I hope they make this on again soon! One of the best Californian Commons around, and definitely the best one coming out of Minnesota.
