Big ups to Wilson for a crazy big box of beer today! Tiny Bomb is a mildly hazy, pale golden beauty. The foam crackles as it rises to a proud two fingers in height and leaves chunky lacing as it retreats. Carbonation hustles up the glass in streams. My thirst is nearly quenched just looking at this pilsner.

As soon as the can cracks, the cereal grains hit the nose with pure cleanliness and a soft sweetness. Bready malts join the fray while the hop presence is certainly noticeable in the form of herbal spiciness, grassiness, and a squeeze of lemon for brightness. This is a fresh smelling pilsner and instantly makes me salivate.

As bright as the nose seems to be, the flavor is even more so. The hopping is bold for the style starting off with the aforementioned spice and grassiness before segueing into a bright lemon acidity on the finish. All that over the top of a deliciously refined, mildly sweet, graininess that's straight out of the sun.

The body shows a nice weight. It's moderate upfront, a little sweetness on the tip of the tongue, but the carbonation gets it moving until you're left with a lighter body, a bitter tongue and a dry throat. In my opinion, that's exactly how a pilsner should be. This beer is beyond drinkable. I could be a happy man with an endless supply of Tiny Bomb.

Wiseacre hit it out of the park with Tiny Bomb. In my opinion, this is what a pilsner should be. It's clean and grainy with a bright, yet bold, hoppiness that buzzsaws through the softly sweet grain with a dry finish that leaves you wanting more, now. Wow! Thanks a lot, Wil!

Pours a fluffy 1 finger white head with great retention. Beer is a clear goldenrod. Lacing is stringy and spotty with good stick. A really good looking beer.

Smells of a crisp, clean hop body with a biting, accented bitterness followed by a mellow, spritzy, lemony malt body. Nice.

Opens crisp and clean. Accented hop bitterness that tastes of citrus, wax, grass and pine. Aggressive but clean on the finish. Enjoyable.

Light bodied with ample carbonation. Smooth and quenching in the mouth and goes down sparkling and clean. Quick finish with a slightly bitter aftertaste. Very quaffable.

I'm not sure how much "complexity" people expect from this beer. This is very drinkable, refreshing and clean, which is exactly what you expect from the style. A nice offering.

A beautiful, crisp, flavorful, and ridiculously drinkable pilsner. The closest thing to it is Pilsner Urquell on the import side and Sly Fox Pikeland Pils on the craft side. This is richer than Urquell, but more subtle than the Sly Fox (and that's ok). The spicy hops and toasty, bready malts work wonders together here. Find yourself a case. It's damn good.

Poured into a New Belgium goblet. No freshness date.

A- Pours a medium golden color with a 1/2 inch white head that retains decently before becoming a thin ring around the edge of the glass and a small center patch of surface foam. Semi-resilient lacing leaves a thick ring behind.

S- Crisp aroma of light, bready malt and mild noble hops. A tad musty.

T- The malt is flavorful yet restrained with more breadiness and the hops balance things out very nicely. Actually, the hops start to take over the flavor with some mounting bitterness. Still, things don't go overboard.

M- Just enough hop bite to keep me interested without pushing the envelope on the style too heavily. Medium carbonation and a light body.

O- A hop-forward pilsner that I could easily see myself knocking back quite a few of at some sporting event or outdoor activity.
