COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bomble Bee 17 turned out pretty much how we wanted a pilsener style lager from our backyard brewery to be. Golden colour and a pearly white head. Elegant dry body and a refreshing bitterness. But then, while lagering, our brewmaster chose to bombard the brew with hops to give the beer its final profile. Grassy Saaz battling Flowery Willamette for your noses attention. We call it a Hop-Struck Pilsener.

This beer reminds me little bit of Brooklyn Lager but this is not quite as good.

jjsint (2482) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - OCT 29, 2016
Can from Ocado as a gift. Nice deep golden colour with a thin smooth head. Malty honeyed aroma, slight metallic and grassy notes. Starts sweet and malty with a bitter and slightly acrid note at the end. More honey in the aftertaste. It isnt bad and the hops add a bit of character. However the balance is a bit off and it isnt much better than your average macro lager.
