3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Huge thanks to G311 for sending this bottle out this way just because he’s such a nice guy and knew I wanted it. Served in a wine glass.
Pours a mostly-clear straw color with a good white head that is quite large. It’s fizzy and goes down quickly, leaving some spotty lacing. The nose brings a moderate amount of malt with some bread, grain, and straw. Behind that are some herbal and floral hops. The flavor takes through a light amount of grainy sweetness along with some moderate bitterness, with floral hops coming through in the finish. Good carbonation on a light body with a dry and somewhat bitter finish. Pretty good beer. Huge thanks, Vince!

Smells floral, tastes pretty bitter. A hint of sweaty dog, grass, eh. I think this is probably the best lager there might be...but it’s still bad.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bomber from SneezyAchew on BA - thanks! Cloudy pale yellow pour, very appropriate given the style. Fresh, grassy, earthy aroma, on par with the pleasing organic feel of many PT brews. Nose is slightly sharp, like angry noble hops. Mouthfeel is nice and lively, with a bit of a raw feel to the palate given the intensity of the carbonation and the bitter hops. Flavors incorporate mild tangerine in the middle, but this beer is mostly about the nice crisp dry tastes. Enjoyable.

Bottle (2010 batch 2). Clear gold/wheat with some white head. Light aroma with some pale malt, wheat, maybe a hint of citrus. Taste is light and refreshing with a light hop finish. Not bad for what it is but also nothing special.

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
The head is lager pure white with sheet lacing. The head dwindles as they do but remains. Teh color is yellow with a slight - ever slight - haze. The nose is full of hops and spice. The light sweet malt hits first and then is balanced quickly with the bitterness of the hops finishing in the aftertaste with the lingering memory of the hops. And then the 7% alcohol take its toll. When this rating was added, it tipped the scale and beer’s rating went up. Cool. One person, rating, etc. does make a difference. June 2010, Batch 2

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bomber, Batch 2, bottled May 2010. The pour gives a clear, pure, medium golden body with an average sized head of smooth eggshell foam. Ultra-thin sheets of tattered tissue lacing score the glass. The nose is straightforward and clean, showing notes of slightly sweet dough, baking white bread, and glazed cereal grain in the malt base, with an equal dose of grassy, slightly citrusy hops there as the counter. Flavors follow suit, again coming across basic and clean. Toasted bread and lightly sugary dough are balanced very nicely with ample peppery, grassy, earthen hops. A twist of lemon rind is there for good measure, lending further bitterness. The palate is moderate in both carbonation and body, showing a crisp, hoppy finish and lingering, resinous, grassy bitterness. Despite being about 5 months old, this held up pretty well for a hoppy lager. I’d gladly drink this any day. Solid brew.
