Pale gold with slow rising carb trails. Sheets of lace, forming a halo around the glass.
Long lasting surface coverage. Foam looks like a puffy buttermilk biscuit.

Aroma is mild and crackery, vaguely bready.
Taste has a more firm grassy hop character with a dry bitter finish. Pale malt is mild and smooth.
Easy feel, light and lean with a crisp bite and light carbonation. Greatly sessionable.
Far better than any macro option out there, resident macro apologists be damned.

I can't say this American Pils disappoints. The wildflower honey lends the crackery Pilsner malt more depth resulting in a chewy body. The hops are there but aren't heavy handed, giving a slight nibble instead of a ferocious bite. Overall, Tiny Bomb is a lovely Pilsner.

Pours a cloudy bright golden yellow color. Frothy white head dissipates slowly leaving a one finger layer of white foam with lots of sticky white lacing on the glass.

Smell has some floral and fruity notes light malt backbone comes through on the nose.

Taste is very fruity up front with some orange, lemon, and grassy hops. Nice cracker pilsner malt backbone.

Feel is lighter with a nice easy drinking character. Semi-dry finish. Medium carbonation.

On its own merits, this a nice good tasting beer. However, its a very Americanized take on the style and drinks more like a pale ale with the hop profile here - not really a Czech Pilsner.

Poured from a 12 oz can,into a Cigar City pint glass.

Frothy,white head that stands a little over 1 finger tall.Golden /straw in color with beautiful clarity,and small hints of sediment floating around.Heavy carbonation on the pour,light carbonation after the pour.

On the nose I get mostly lemon / lemongrass notes,backed by some sweet bread / yeast notes,and some mild notes of malt and hops.A little bit of earth and metallic notes as well,but nothing offensive.

The palate starts of with lemons / lemongrass up front,followed by sweet bread and malt in the middle,and finishes off with some bready yeast ,and piney hops on the back end.The hops are subdued and add a very nice balance.Little bit of an earthy after taste.

The body is thin but not to the point of being watered down.Very smooth finish.This is a nice and easy drinking beer.

Smooth,refreshing,and easy drinking.Definitely a fine beer.

I bought a can of this off the single shelf at Binnys. It poured a clear yellow with white head that is leaving a nice lace. The scent had grain. The taste is nicely balanced and easy to drink. There is slight grain and earth presence. The Mouthfeel is lighter in body with bubbly carbonation. Overall it's a solid pilsner.

poured out of a can into a globe glass..

Nice yellow color with 1 finger pure white head, not cloudy but lots of little white bits floating around.

Smell of bread yeast and spicy hops.

Taste is excellent some nice malt smoothness to start and finishes a spicy floral clean flavor.

Some body, not thick but also not watery , perfect medium.

Overall very good beer and I will be buying it again

A thanks to the creator of the canquest, woodychandler, for this beer. Poured from a 12 oz. can. Has a bright golden color with a 1 inch head. Smell is of malts, lemons. Taste is lemons, light sourness, malts, grains, easy drinking. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a decent beer.
