3.5/5 rDev -6.4%
Poured into a standard pint glass a nice clear rich copper color with a half finger white head that left a fair amount of lacing as it settled.Mild aromas with some lightly toasted bread dough a hint of caramel malts,not much hop presence to be found.Light and crisp on the palate with a little sweet dough-like flavors,the hops are restrained giving off some leafy/spicy notes in the finish.No frills here and not alot of hops but it goes down easy,more malt tilted.

Brilliant yellow-gold covered with a thick, creamy head. The aroma is mostly grassy, spicy hops and a little crackery, wort-like malt. Clean, crisp noble hops, citrus, and sweet malt. Floral, peppery, a little toasty. Medium-light, bitter, and snappy. This is a very nice, German take on the pale ale. Hoppy, just in an atypical way.

A bright, clear copper-gold color with a classy white froth soundly capping the top with very impressive costing of lace throughout. The aroma is very weak and hard to identify, just a hint of crisp wheat , that's about all I can pick up. The first swig seems similarly weak but then the subtle floral hops and bright cereal grains evolve into a very pleasing , delicate medley. There's a sort of creamy quality that's se neatly with the fine effervescent carbonation in this light bodied ale. A surprising pale ale. Not your typical offering but quite good on its own right.

A: Pours a clear straw yellow with two fingers of white head that fades into a thin cap with nice lacing.
S: Clean, biscuity aromas with crystal malts up front with a light grassy hop character. Nice bread aromas bring up the finish.
T: Similar to the aroma, crystal malts with clean biscuit and bread flavors. Grassy and piney hop flavors come through before a dry, clean finish.
M: Light body with medium carbonation, this beer is dry and drinkable, though could use a little more carbonation.
O: An enjoyable beer, overall. More like a lightly hopped pilsner, but this beer is still drinkable and tasty.

bomber into a tulip. 7/15/13 bottling date.
Pours a brass color with a 2 inch thick head. A bit too carbonated. Smell is malty and crisp. Taste is more like a german pils than an APA. citrusy and crisp. Very much like a lager. Great malt backbone. Medium bodied, but fuller than an APA. Easy drinking and refreshing.
Overall a good drinking lager. OMB has impressed me thus far and ill look out for more from them.

On-tap, while in Charlotte, July 2012:
The beer appeared a nice copper color with thick white head, very well retained and left thin cap. Some lacing. The beer gave off a light grain aroma and maybe a hint of biscuit. The had a nice German pils taste to it, sweet malt taste with that hint of biscuit. I would say that this is a nicely balanced beer. The beer had a light feel to it, good carbonation, and was very smooth. Overall, a nice beer in OMB's stellar line of beers. I will be heading to the brewery...again...the next time that I am in Charlotte. Keep up the good work.
