3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bomber bottle poured into pilsner glass from cellar (54F). Pours a light gold color with a thick white head. Head is long-lasting and leaves a lot of lacing on the glass. Aroma - biscuity, green, a touch of yeast. Taste - initially biscuit and then a touch of bitterness, then some malty sweetness and a finish that is lightly bitter and astringent at the back of the mouth. Carbonation level is appropriate and leaves a tickle in the back of your sinuses as you swallow. Note a huge fan of irish-style lagers, but it’s St. Patty’s Day. This isn’t bad, but I wouldn’t go out of my way to drink it again.

Best place to get a lager rating - for free at the Whole Foods Market sample pours. Nice crisp barley. More than adequate for style but still not something next level. Pours blonde with OK head and lacing.

bottle. Golden with two finger head. Nice flavor for a lager. I’m not crazy about Irish-styled beers in general, but this is definitely an exception. Light malt body, pleasant slightly hoppy bite.

Pretty good. Light in color, and easily drinkable. Not too strong, so you could get away with drinking a few.
