3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bomber from Belmont Station. Label much more detailed than original! Pours bright gold with a white head. Aroma of light sweet malt and mild non-Sazz hop. Med body or better. Flavor is very lightly sweet malt, and the hop is somewhat Saaz. Nice, but flavors are not strong. Could use much more noble hop IMHO. Finishes mildly biter. And quite clean.

(22oz bottle) Lightly hazed apple juice body with off-white head. Aroma is medium sweet, grapefruit, apple. Taste is moderately sweet, floral, apple, some grapefruit, light alcohol. Bitterness really only comes out in the swallow, suggesting this beer is pat its prime. Medium-full body, some stickiness.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sample at the 29th Annual Oregon Brewers Festival on 07/30/2016. Cloudy yellow-gold color with a medium white head that recedes steadily to a film. Short strings of lace. Aroma of grassy hops, fruit and malt. Medium body with flavors of spicy hops, citrus and malt. The finish is mildly bitter with an herbal hop aftertaste. Decent overall.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Orange. Thick orange head, collapsing. Nose is malty, and fruity as grape or vaguely citrus. Very hopbitter – so much that distinction between noble or bitterhops becomes moot. Citrussy retronasal, long. Mouthfeel is a bit oily, very full-bodied. Refreshing all the same. Nice. Given blind, Pilsener is the last thing I’d thought of.

Strong wet dog odor, vegetables as well... grassy with some sweet, sticky, almost hot alcohol. Malt-liquoresque... too hot, too sticky, and too grainy. No thanks.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
This 2002 vintage bottle was won in a drawing at Fredfest and subseqently dropped on the cement floor. Amazingly, the bottle didn’t break but the cap popped off, and most of the beer was saved and consumed by whoever was nearby. This bottle will be known as "Double Capsize Double Pilsner." The beer is cloudy golden with a thick white head and floral yeasty aroma. There is a substantial sweet malt flavor complemented by very nice hop bitterness that held up well over the years. A pleasant accident.

So it’s back! After 6 years, wow. On tap at the brewery. Pours a golden hue with a medium white head. A big nose of floral and sweet honey biscuit. The flavor is grainy, sweet sugary malts, honey, light floral hops. Very smooth. Solid.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
2002 bottle. Head is initially average sized, frothy, off-white, mostly
diminishing. Body is clear dark yellow. Aroma is moderately hoppy
(grapefruit), lightly malty (toasted light bread), moderately yeasty
(sweat, dough). Flavor is moderately sweet, moderately bitter,
moderately acidic. Finish is moderately bitter, moderately acidic,
lightly sweet. Medium to full body, creamy texture, lively carbonation,
lightly alcoholic, lightly astringent. Not impressed...sweaty yeast (and
grapefruity hops) ruins the aroma and flavor alike.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Shared at the 12/18/04 Wisconsin gathering: Clear pale golden with a thin white lacy head. Semi-sweet pale malty aroma shows some European hoppiness. Body is lightly sweet turning more tart and acidic with some citrus presence. Needs more balance and Saaz hops though to be a double pilsner. Thanks DavidP for sharing!
