4.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
A bomber, pours clear and a darker gold. It has 8% ABV, stamped on the label, in a very hard to see ink. I know the description on rate beer says 7%. That must have been a previous, older batch. This bad boy is 8%. Also stamped it says it was brewed in 2014 (no month denoted), and it says 70 IBUs. 70 IBUs for a Pilsner is unheard of! This 8% beauty is easy drinking, smells and tastes hoppy like you’d imagine for an Imperial Pilsner, and goes down easily, with a clean, crisp finish. It’s lighter on the palate than an Imperial IPA. I give this brew high ratings because it deserves it. A dated bomber, 70 IBUs, and at a reasonable price, you can’t lose. Add in the less filling Pilsner style and it is a real winner!

Tap at craft house in El Paso
pours dark orange hue with a small soapy white bead and great lacing. Noseis sweet and malthough I expected a big hoppy pils. Flavors of big sweet biscuit malts and faint spicy hops. Really not all that interesting. Big slick body with mild carbonation. Long lightly spicy hops on the finish lingering bitterness. Really not that interesting.

Pours a nice clear golden with fizzy white head. Cereal grains on the nose are most present; follows onto the palate. Finishes ok.

Poured a clear dark gold with a 2 finger, foamy head. Lots of carbonation coming from the bottom of the glass. Floral and citrus hop smell with a hint of rye. It tastes similar to a rye IPA with a pilsner body. Semi-dry finish. A good pilsner

A good pilsner with a nice malt flavor and high hops content. A very big head with plenty of lace, this beer is close to an IPA in taste. The malt is straight forward in taste. Overall, a good beer, but a little too hoppy for the malt strength.

On draught at Hay Merchant. The beer pours a luminous orange-gold color with a medium off-white head that dissipates gradually. Stringy lacing on the glass. Aroma of hops, malt and spice. Medium-bodied with flavors of grassy hops, grainy malt and citrus. The finish is mildly bitter with a floral hops aftertaste. Decent overall.

22oz bottle, Secret Santa 2013 Summer, as you amp up the pils category you are more prone to off flavors, and unclean fermentation this is no different while still a viable and drinkable beer, the finish had a punch of flavor that was slightly offputting for me. the people I shared it with didnt seem to mind as much.

Bomber Initial pour was clear dark gold with a fluffy lacy white head, The second pour had lots of floaties. Sweet caramel nose with a but of fruit and perfume. Full body, sweet taste of caramel, bread, There are enough hops to punch their way through all the residual sugar far a decent if somewhat grassy finish.

Bomber. Poured a murky amber color with a nice white top. Looked like a snow globe! Taste wasn’t as appealing: too much caramel, sweet grains, earthy bitter finish. High carbonation, medium body.
