4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
This brew is just absolutely amazing! It poured up a beautiful, rich, dark amber-colored body that formed up a huge frothy head with amazing retention and lacing effects which lasted until the beer was gone! Aromas of caramel, sweet malts, citrus fruits (orange and maybe a bit of lemon), hops, and spices. There’s a nice hoppy hit up front followed by sweet malt for a mellowed, somewhat dry finish.

Golden brew with a small amount of white head. Lots of bready malt aromas with some decent grassy hops. Flavor is lacking with some bitterness, grainy and earthy flavors. Better than most of Rahr’s offerings but still decent at best.

On tap at petrol station. Pours a clear orange copper with a medium frothy white head that leaves sticky lacing. The aroma is a faint corn malt and wheat. Thin mouhfeel with a dry wheat and yeast. Easy to drink with a nice dry finish. A good imperial pils from Rahr.

Bottle via a trade with blutt59. Pours with a notably viscous quality. Orange body, clear, with a small bone hued head. Aromas up front are hoppy: floral, earthy, a hint of citrus. Malt quality is bready, nutty, and biscuity. Light sulfur/lager yeast notes. Flavors are bready, biscuity, malty and bitter (I cannot tell if there is a malt astringency as well causing some of the bitterness). A bit of an herbal note. Sweet up front but dries out towards the finish. Surprisingly viscous body. Medium to light bubbles.

I think this one is underrated. It is very close to being a malty masterpiece. Well balanced taste of malts, rye and hops. Much better than expected.

Clear golden orange color with a small off-white head. Mild aroma of toast, nuts, and hay. The flavor is nuts and a bit of sweet malt and a very mild bitterness. Medium bodied, a little sticky and dry.

bomber. Pours a clear amber with an off-white head. Nose is nutty, grainy and boring. Taste is malty and grainy. Mouthfeel is medium. This was not horrible, but not a good pilsner.

6/24/11. Bomber courtesy Cavie! Clear piss colored golden pour with a very small white head that fades instantly. Mild floral aroma with some grain in there. Slightly sweet flavor with a nice bitter punch and a big hint of chocolate. Not bad.

What’s not to like. Great name; great label; great style; sent by a great guy - bomber from ericandersnavy. Pours amber with a creamy off-white head. Aroma is bready with some spicy florality. Flavor is peppery/bready with some herbal/noble hop. It’s quite nice. Good body, intriguing flavor, finishing towards astringently bitter. I’d like to see them do a 10 single hop series, if that wouldn’t lose the pepper spice. I like this.
