Unimpressive pour. Looks like Miller Lite. Nose is of cookie dough with a bit of skunk. The skunk surprised the heck out of me. A richer fuller body and mouth feel than I expected, with more hops than I expected. A little sour in the beginning with the skunk and all. Get rid of the skunk and this isn’t half bad. Coming from me that’s high praise. I don’t usually care for pilsner style beer.

Straw yellow with the mildest of haze and a fluffy white head, quickly fading. Aroma of grassy hops, noble hops, pale malt and a touch of skunk. Watery body taste of grassy hops, pale malt and diacteyl. Finishes dry to astringent. Meh.

Pours a nice yellow color with a medium white head.Aromas of yeasty grains,corn and some hops peeking through as well. Flavor is of grains that turn very sweet, then the saaz hops take over to finish it off bitter.Nice light to medium body to it. Very good for the style.Great cause as well!

Lots of lager yeast in the aroma and flavor. Yelow color and low carbonation for the style. Medium bodied, adequate hop and malt flavors. A well made pilsner in the central European style, very good for an American effort.

22oz bottle 4/10/2009 (Discount Liquor-Milwaukee)-Pours a hazy golden with a decent white head that dissipates quickly into a small covering. Aroma of grains, corn, malt, and slight hops. Taste is of the same with a bit more grains and a tad of citrus thrown in. A light bodied brew that has a sharp bitterness on the back end. Not bad.

22 oz bomber straight from the Brewery (Milwaukee, WI) from my Beer-Birthday trip, which was planned and given to me by the girlfriend. Sounds like she wants a ring, eh guys? Pours a golden slightly hazed hue, a little dark, but still very clear, with big white bubbly head that begins to dissipate to a moderate amount. Aromas are very muted, grainy malts with slight corn and a vague sweetness. Initial has a decent body for the style, largely grainy and corny malt sweetness, with a touch of honey, and slight grassy and earthy bitterness on the finish. Fairly bland, but decent. Well carbonated, and largely dull maltiness. Corn, sweet grains, light grassiness. Ok. Typical Blonde Ale.

Bomber. Poured very light, clear, bright golden with a short cap of white head. The aroma picked up lightly floral and grassy hops over a weak pale malt base.. rather simple, but it grew on me. The flavor never did quite catch with me.. dry pale malts on the core with a light pinch of honey.. grassy and hay-like bitterness didn’t provide much character and stuck unpleasantly on the finish. Lighter-bodied and tacky on the palate with an ugly bitter impression at the end.. balance wasn’t good.. not so enjoyable.

Thanks to Skyview. Clear yellow pour with a thin head. Carbonation. Dull malty aroma. Corn and some citrus along with a small touch of alcohol in flavor.

Picked up a single 22-oz bomber at Discount Liquors in Waukesha, Wisconsin. Pours a clear light golden blonde brew with a decent white head that quickly dissipates and leaves a spotty lacing. Aroma of grassy hops at first and then a golden grain malt, some citrus zest and a hint of lemon. Taste is light to medium bodied, some carbonation with flavors of golden grain malt, citrus zest, and some grassy hops. Finish has a semi-dry bitterness that quickly disappears to a crisp finish.
