4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
On tap at brewery, took home a growler. One of the most delicious lagers ever!!! Color is a nice golden color. Good head and lacing. Aroma is very hoppy. The flavour is where you really notice the wet hops. You really wouldn’t even know this was a lager.

Bright amber color with lasting ivory sheen. Big dank, earthy, spicy, barnyard piss aromas. Light bodied with average co2. Dry, spicy flavors of earth, wet grass, with lagered maltage--very good

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A yeasty buttery smell and a slight aroma of hops. Wierd for a lager but it does have a lager smell as well. Has a blonde hazy color with a decent head. Very light bodied slight yeast after taste. A sharp bitter taste but not overwhelming. That buttery smell comes thru in the mouthfeel towards the end of the taste. Leaves with a thick feeling for a moment. The caramel malts show thru for a moment slightly. Overall not a bad brew it is like an ipa but it is a lager. You ban feel the alcohol in the back of ur throat. Worth a buy

The 22-oz bottle came from Total Wine and More in Sacramento, CA. Pours a rich gold with a big white head. Moderate lacing. Nose is floral hops. Medium in body with a very clean smooth mouthfeel. The flavor is light fruit, flowers, and citrus. Finishes slightly bitter. Good.

3.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bomber from Total Wine in Sacramento, CA. Pours amber gold with a 3 finger creamy/bubbly white head. Aroma is bready with something like noble hop. For me just now the hop aroma is not strong. Med body. Flavor is bready, fruity, and somewhat citrus. Very nice, but not the cat pee I’d hoped for (see rating below). It’s very refreshing. But I’m getting more apricot than citrus. Very good drink.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sample at brewery. Clear medium yellow pour with a slick of white foam. Aroma is faded hops and light sweet malt with perhaps some trailing citrus. Taste is light hops with some bitterness and a slightly medicinal twinge over some sweet malt. Smooth mouthfeel. Okay but well past its prime.

Pale yellow pour with a big fluffy white head. Beautiful lacing. Aroma is a little plasticy with some pine notes. Smells kind of green too. Flavor is a little buttery and a touch sweet. Some more light plastic. Something just tastes off.

Bomber. Clear yellow pour, with a white head. Sharp lemon citrus, some sweet apricot, musty earth, and a little buttery. Not very good, must be past its prime.
