3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle: Medium amber hue with small but lasting frothy head and very good lace. The aroma has notes of grassy and floral hops with a sublime spicy character, some lime and orange notes, and a hint of biscuity malts. The taste starts fruity (mostly citric) and herbal and some malt background. A big dose a forceful bitters shine through and are very lively on the palate. The finish displays the same light spice found on the nose with a different, almost subdued lingering bitter quality. The feel is aggressive and lively but does finish with a papery dryness. Alcohol was well hidden. Oh yeah, this is not your dads pils, full blown and heady stuff. I enjoyed it quite a lot.

Bottle. Pours a ruddy orange color. Decent white head that fades rather quickly leaving a thin film. Some lacing. Aroma is a mix of malt and spicey hops. Pleasant balance with malt and hop in taste. Fairly smooth. A little more flavor than most lagers that I have tried. Very strong hop finish leaving tastes of citrus rind.

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.

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.

A different pilsner for sure. It has a hop bite to it, that I’m not so sure belong in a pilsner. The finish even left a bitter aftertaste. The higher alcohol comes through in the taste.

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.

Bomber. Grainy malt aroma with notes of grassy and floral hops as well as a pinch of citrus. Pours clear pale golden colored with one finger of white head that has excellent retention but very little lacing. Starts with grainy malt flavors with a little bit of citrus mixed in as well. Finishes crisp, clean and refreshing with slight amounts of grassy and floral hops to dry and cleanse the palate. Nice pils.
