Thanks to the tampa crew for the share. Pours hazy yellow with a white head. Nose is malt, grain, ammonia, and slight hops. Flavor is similar with an unenjojyable finish. tronraner (2459) - Walland, Tennessee, USA - SEP 11, 2010
Bomber. Pours a luscious golden color with nice white head. The aroma is grassy hops, a little bit of lemon, and some sweet maltiness. The flavor is a little on the sweet side for a true pilsener, but is still quite good. Honeyish malt dominates, cut by some lemon, grass, and slight spicy hops. Very drinkable, and for a good cause, too. DYCSoccer17 (3714) - Woodland, California, USA - SEP 10, 2010
22 ounce bottle from the Davis Food Co-Op. This has a nice sweet, toasted, aroma with plenty of maltiness and some honey notes as well. There was some initial noble hop grassiness, but it quickly dissipated. Transparent golden body with a medium white head that is pillowy and pretty fortuitous. Starts with some pretty sharp grassiness and hop flavors. This is followed by a super sweet sugary malt middle with some toastiness present. Light biscuit, too. Finishes with spicy, herbal hop flavors. The awkward sweetness in the middle of this makes it feel out of balance and not overly palatable. slitcher (273) - Freeport, Illinois, USA - SEP 10, 2010
Pours a beautiful golden color with a fluffy white head. Aromas of sweet malt, wheat, some citrus and hops. A nice sweet flavor with grass and wheat. Very interesting and very good. unclemattie (4406) - Georgia, USA - SEP 10, 2010
22oz bottle. Smells like the beach. Kinda odd. Salt air and lotion. HUH...

Golden pour, thick airy white head. Smells of wheat malt, cinnamon, peppery hops, and a bit of lentil soup. Flavor is a bit soapy. Very much a Pilsner. Straw flavors, pale malts. Finishes with a Wheat Ale dryness. Creamy textured and a lemony zest add to the pleasant experience.
Bomber from the CBX poured into a pilsner glass a few times. I wasn’t interested in a pils from Abita necessarily ,but it is for a good cause. Now I’m glad I picked one up. It looks great for the style: very cloudy bright yellow with a frothy head. The aroma isn’t as hoppy as I would like, but it is very yeasty and citrusy without any corn or really anything that I usually don’t like from golden lagers. This is superbly refreshing without being flavorless. It engages my palate with a doughy hint at crackers and modest wooden hops that remind me this is supposed to be a pilsner, but juicy and zesty lemon seems to be the most notable flavor. Normally I would really want more hops from the style, but this is different enough to be pleasing in an entirely separate manner. I am impressed with what Abita has done. Not too shabby. It’s no Prima Pils. . but not too shabby. TheBeerOrg (2145) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - SEP 9, 2010
Pours dull gold with a thin mostly receding off-white head. Notes of sweet pils malt, strong resin, herbal, grassy, spicy hop, and biscuit. Medium bodied with lively carbonation. TheBeerGod (6284) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - SEP 9, 2010
Bottle. Golden bodied with a dense, tall white head. Perfumey hops, light lemon, grains and grassy notes in the aroma. Taste is a touch sweeter with honey notes, lemony zest, grassy hops, wheat, and light herbal hops. Body is medium with a strong, bubbly carbonation. Ends with more lemony notes, softer honey and sweet malt, dried fruit, herbal flavors and grassy hops. 17thfloor (2444) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 7, 2010
Bottle. Pours a paler golden yellow with a tall frothy thick white head. Aroma is lightly grassy with vanilla, lightly floral, smells like egg-whites. Flavor follows, seemingly full and creamy, egg-whites, vanilla, lightly floral, a bit too soft, very soft, little bit boozy on the finish, hot wheat, medium bitterness. Soft carbonation, really low carbonation, milky. Flavor is pretty good, I like the wheat element, however the total lack of carbonation fails this beer miserably. matthewjk (1138) - San Diego, California, USA - SEP 6, 2010
22oz bottle - interesting style. Lots of sweet malt and banana, bread, and yeastiness. Not something I would usually seek out, but I appreciate the charitable contribution Abita is making from each unit sold. Good job guys!
