Bomber poured into a tankard at approximately 45 degrees F.

A: Pours a mildly hazy straw-gold, and forms a seriously tall head of white foam even with a delicate pour, which leaves some positively crazy amounts of lacing down the sides of the glass. Carbonation explodes out from the beer during the pour.

S: Light toast and biscuit malt, with some mild earthy, floral, and herbal tones.

T: Exactly as the aroma. The core is the light toasted biscuit, almost like a plain English muffin, drizzled over with an earthy, grassy bitterness. The lawnmower label is apt, as it tastes like a suburban front yard smells while being mowed, all grass and chlorophyll with a light haze of flowers and pollen. The finish is pure earthen bitterness, which stays for a few moments and then fades abruptly.

M:Bubbly and lively, with just a little more heft than an adjunct lager.

O: A good go at a yellow lager, much better than an adjunct. I'm glad I gave it a whirl. As a malthead, I'd have liked a little less grass and a little more biscuit, but I know I'm in a minority in that respect.
