3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
10oz on tap at Flipdaddy’s. Clear golden orange color. Nice bigger off-white head. Good thicker splotches of lace, looks pretty damn good. Great texture to it, as well. Medium-plus body. Smooth, lightly soft, lighter carbonation. More dry finish. Great appearance and texture to this, then. Flavor is not that interesting, though. Just some bready, lagery funk. A light macro-like weird thing going on in the flavor, here. Some corn type flavors. Decent ands interesting, but what about this is supposed to be Irish-style? Is it influenced by an Irish macro? Bigger sweet taste, light to moderate bitter. Despite the odd flavor, though, it never becomes a pain a drink, and lacks the bite of a macro. Has a near-perfect texture that you only see in craft beers.. Good stuff to try, and a pretty decent, classically tasting lager in the end.

From bomber to pint glass. Pours a clear light gold with full, fluffy white head. Both aroma and flavor are grainy malt with slight hay and lemon. Finishes dry and crisp.

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.
