Bottle... Poured a deep amber with an off-white head. Malty aroma with a vegetable-like quality. Light, sweet flavors with a mild bitterness. Big malts with a short, crisp finish, with the Cascade Hops shining through.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bomber. A wiener lager, huh? Heater usually cranks out good stuff. Beautiful appearance, clear deep amber with a lacy white head. Nice aroma, toasty caramel with a citrus and earthy hop punch. The flavor is like Brooklyn Lager on roids, like the Barroids of wieners. Mildly sweet and quite bitter and hot on the finish. Medium body with a good hop bite. Legit as hell. One of the best wieners I’ve ever sucked down!

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bronzed brew with a slight salon hued and topped with a decent head. Clean, characteristic "steam" aroma with some pepper heat. Muted floral hop flavor specked with metallic notes. As with Kolsch’s, I apparently just don’t get this style. Drinkable, but rather ordinary stuff.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
22 oz bottle courtesy of DA. Pour is ruby brown, hazy with a 1/2 inch off white head. Fair amount of lacing left behind. Aroma of sweet dark fruit and brown sugar caramel sweetness. Taste is mostly the caramel maltiness, though is drier and earthier than the nose would have suggested. There really is quite a bit of flavor and complexity in this. Like the Heater Allen Pils, it is pretty simple and straight forward and complex at the same time. Palate is thin to medium, very drinkable. This would be a very nice winter session beer. Really impressed with this brewery. Thanks for sending this my way Derek!

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at home after a long day at work. Pour is clear amber with a fluffy off-white head and great lacing. Snappy, crackers, toffee, grassy, slightly fruity, husky, and caramelly aroma. Taste is chewy malt, toffee, cookie, light grass, slightly floral, slightly toasted cracker, and oranges with a crisp bitter finish. Light body with medium carbonation. Clean and easy drinking lager but not quite up to their pilsener’s standard.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
22 oz bottle. Misty amber with a spongy white head. Nose is toffee, orange, apple and light pine; lovely. Medium light with bright but soft carb. Taste is bitter lemon, juicy grapefruit, hint of caramel. These folks do great lagers.

2.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
22 ounce bottle purchased at The Davis Beer Shoppe. The aroma on this is a very pleasant, sweet, floral aroma with caramel maltiness. The hops really unleash a very nice floral bouquet. So quaffable. Transparent amber-colored body with a medium, light orange head. Good lacing, but the head is a little weak. Starts with a hoppy, bitter, astringent earthy hop explosion. This is super bitter and harsh. There’s very little malt character here to back up the really heavy medicinal hop bitterness. Super dry. A severe disappointment.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Corvallis. Pours a reddish tinged amber with an offwhite head. Nose shows some soft sweetness and clean, herbal hops, tending towards an English type character. Toasty malt with a drying finish. Medium bitterness and richly malty overall. Really nice stuff.
