3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Whatís 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. Itís quite nice. Good body, intriguing flavor, finishing towards astringently bitter. Iíd like to see them do a 10 single hop series, if that wouldnít lose the pepper spice. I like this.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: † Amberish, slight haze, moderate off-white head, frothy, nice lacing. † Semi-sweet barnish aroma, a bit like alfalfa or something. † Has this minor aroma of rabbit food. † Very smooth hay/straw like maltiness on the tongue. † A bit hoppy as well. † Feels fairly full bodied. † More hops than most for this style, which is fine. † Strong lingering hay and straw, with a tinge towards grassiness. † This is a big hoppy Pils. † Thanks Bill for the bottle!

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.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
22 oz. bottle from a buddy in Texas- thanks, Brian! Pours a somewhat hazy orange-gold color with a small eggshell white head. Notes of sweet crackers, toasted sugar, marshmallow, orange and lemon citrus, hay, biscuit, and a little earthiness. Not much in the way of hops to speak of. Thatís all right, though, as Iíve had plenty in this style that are excessively grassy, boozy, and bitter. This is none of that- dry, malty, and toasty. Medium-bodied, with moderate carbonation. Not bad.
