Appears clear and golden in color with a foamy white head.

It smells a bit citrusy and floral. I get a bit of sweet bread like malty smell as well.

It tastes initially fairly citrusy: I get a strong lemon flavor. There is a mild grainy sweetness to the beer. There is a bit of a chemical like aftertaste (that I find in most lagers) in this beer.

The mouth feel is fizzy as the carbonation is fairly high. Though this is a normal mouth feel for this style.

Drinkability is pretty damn good. It is light yet it has enough flavors so it is not a bore to drink. The metallic aftertaste does limit how easy the beer goes down though.

Overall better than average. This would be a good beer to drink on a hot day. This is not a perfect lager but it is very good. Worth picking up a bottle or two.

Bomber from Capital Market,Salem. Nice looking hazy ,yet bright golden beer with a nice big rocky,bubbly pure white head. very nice fresh doughy, biscuity aromas..very pleasing. Taste is similar to the aroma but with a very nice mellow citric/lemon "zing" to it in the end. Nice mouthfeel to this lager. A very nice surprise..a tasty, clean refreshing lager from Oregon. This needs to be in 6 packs.
