Thanks Frank. This was poured into a becher pint glass. The appearance was a golden bronzed color with a film of a little white foamy head that receded at a nice pace. Sliding lace. The aroma had some sweet corn, light biscuits, and grassy sweet hops. The flavor brought the prior mentioned aromas together sweetly and kicked the aftertaste with the grassy sweet hops which propelled the finish to be somewhat grassy sweet. The palate was light bodied with a good carbonation about it. ABV felt as projected by the brewer. Overall, I didnt mind this beer. Probably would be better with food, though.

Bottle. Head is initially small, frothy, white, mostly diminishing. Body is medium yellow. Aroma is lightly malty (grain, corn starch), lightly hoppy (flowers), with light notes of apple juice, DMS, egg. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly bitter, lightly to moderately bitter, unclean. Light to medium body, watery texture, lively/fizzy carbonation. Just plain terrible...dirty in both aroma and aftertaste, this has no redeeming qualities at all. Did they even try to make something enjoyable? So bad it almost seems like an intentional insult to vets.

Bomber. Pours very light yellow, on the lighter side even for the style. A small ring of a white head forms. Aroma has virtually no hops, a little bread and plenty of veggies, particularly corn. The palate is expectedly light with sweet corn flavors and a finish like dough. I’m not sure I’ve had a golden ale that I’ve particularly liked, so I’m not sure what else I want from this beer without making it not a golden ale. Maybe some more earthy hop bite or perhaps a little less sweet, but then is it still to style?

Bomber poured a clear yellow with a lasting white head. Aromas of straw, bread dough, lemon zest and light floral notes. Palate was light bodied and smooth. Flavors of bread, light citrus and light straw with a smooth finish.

zoucrew102 (2054) - - MAY 17, 2014
Bomber, 2014 version 5.5% ABV. Bready malt aroma with floral notes as well a a bit of citrus. Pours clear golden colored with a thin white head and some lacing. Very malty at the beginning with a bready mouthfeel. Finishes crisp and clean with floral and a bit of citrus on the palate. Solid blonde ale.

Tap. Pours clear, pale yellow with average, fizzy white head; decent retention and minimal lacing. Aroma is asparagus, citrus fruit, faint floral hops, and bread malt. Flavor is mostly malt but with veggie undertones; dry finish. Light body with low carbonation and warmth.

onceblind (10327) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUL 9, 2011
Clear straw yellow, thin white head with lots of lace. Aroma of pickle and toast. Taste was oddly kinda the same. Not too briney or vinigary, but a pickle note is definitely there. Starts with some brown toast malts, a pickled middle with a touch of lemon, and finishes with toast and cereal grain malt. Really odd. Not a fan.

cubs (10693) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUL 7, 2011
Tap @ brewery. Pale, light yellow appearance with a well carbonated head. Somewhat citrusy, light blonde ale nose. Lemony, light pale, blonde ale with a crisp, slightly fruity finish. Nice blonde ale.

3.5
notalush (5910) - Lakewood, Colorado, USA - JUL 6, 2011
Tap at the brewery - clear light gold - lively pour - delightfully crisp and clean - starts off with light honey sweetness, but quickly dries out, bringing some lightly chalky texture and Biscuity character, which also fades fast, followed by clean, moderate bitterness and a mild white grape sort of finish - a healthy dose of lemony tartness on the tail end - quite nice, really - would love to try on cask.
