Approximately 5 oz. pour, on tap at the brewery’s taproom in Charlotte, North Carolina. Consumed on 9-21-15. Listed as "Capt Jack." Pours a bright, clear gold with beige head. Looks good. Quite effervescent. Buttery smell, probably due to diacetyl, but I’m okay with that. Lightly buttery taste (buttered popcorn) but pleasant. Soft in the palate. Medium body; heavy for a pilsner. Easy to drink. Overall, more likable than good but not bad. lithy (2996) - Capital of Appalachia, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 6, 2012

Bomber as a bonus in a trade. Straw yellow with limited white head. Sweet, lots of fruit, grain, some malt. Low carbonation, mild body, slightly dry with a very slight bitterness and some sweet malt. TAR (2787) - Blue Ridge Mountains, North Carolina, USA - NOV 14, 2016
Draft at the brewpub: Clear blonde. Healthy white head shows good retention. Remarkably unclean nose of DMS, metal shavings, vinegar, decaying apples and cauliflower. Loose carbonation is quite fuzzy on the tongue. Vinegary and tart, initially, with notes of applesauce worsened by an abrasive huskiness. No hoppy brightness to speak of due to the overbearing huskiness which evolves into popcorn and burnt sawdust. Tartness persists as the structure steadily worsens, with wet papery malt leading the way. Apple jelly and DMS muddles everything in its path. Foully vegetal and wet finish of canned green beans and wet paper, with notes of popcorn lingering. Well, somehow they managed to create something even more putrid than their embarrassing helles. This is profoundly industrial in character and absolutely replete with glaring defects. I’m truly mystified as to why this brewery bothers with the extra cost and intense labor of decocting their lagers when they struggle mightily with so many other things. There is a huge DMS problem at this brewery and evidently the brewers are fans of this character, as I found it in all four beers I sampled, or they simply aren’t detecting it. Wow, just wow. ucusty (2693) - raleigh, North Carolina, USA - JUN 24, 2011
Had this less than two weeks old according to the hand written date on the bottle. Very cool.. Bottle from Brawleys in Charlotte. Thanks to OSCF for sharing. Lively gold pour frothy white head and drippy lace. Grassy hops and corn on the nose. Corn bomb flavor with light signs of oxidation which I found strange given the freshness factor. durhambeer (2585) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - NOV 27, 2012
$4 bomber from Bruisin’ Ales in Asheville. Pours light bright, ever-so-slightly hazy gold with a decent white head and a bit of lacing. Nose is pilsner hops, grassy and a bit grainy/corny. Taste adds a bit of weird plastic but mostly a solid light beer. freekyp (2416) - Thomasville, North Carolina, USA - SEP 14, 2014
A perfect pile, crisp and grassy with a hop forward character backed with by a solid cracker malt back on. Crystal clear yellow with a 2 finger white head. Light lacing.
