Bomber from SuzyGreenberg - thanks Ben. Pours a luminescent peachy amber with a 2 finger foamy off-white head. ? Grassy/herby aroma over mild caramel. Medium body with foamy carbonation. Caramel is light, and the flavor is like Imperial Pilsner. Good stuff. It’s definitely bitter. Good stuff. Repeat indefinitely.

Tap at Commons Santa Monica. Thanks Dedicatedtofun! Clear orange amber. Medium white foam. Good lacing. Nose is sweet strawberry, orange peel, hints of ruby red grapefruit. Taste is dark chocolate bitter, long rindy bitters. Fresh though with tart ruby red grapefruit. Actually pretty legit.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Hazy orange-amber pour with a thin white head. The nose is light and a touch spicy. A hint of soft fruit and orange peel along with a bit of sweet malt. Light and fairly quaffable brew although it’s fairly forgettable. Simple though.

Bottle. Pours with a hazy golden body and a small white head that fades. Aroma of is malty, a bit of a noble hop like earthy/spiciness, a little bit of fruit-leather-rollup. Toffee. Taste is bitter, a bit astringent, husky, hay. Really a lot of lingering bitterness. Lively bubbles. Dry.

Bottle, shared by Parksy. Light golden, hazy, medium white head. Aroma is grainy and grassy, faintly of dried flowers. Lightly biscuity pale malt structure, grassy bitter hops, hint of metal. I would swear this is a pilsener, and a decent one at that!
