poured from a twelve oz can medium thick head with a spicy and malt aroma. taste follows nose with grassy hops medium thick mouth feel and syrupy finish as it warms floral hops becomes more balanced with a dry finish. overall a quality lager with good drinkability would buy again.

Can at Flight Restaurant and Wine Bar, Memphis, TN

A: The beer is clear light yellow in color and has a light amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a half finger high bright white head.
S: Light to moderate aromas of grassy hops are present in the nose along with notes of pilsener malts.
T: The taste has lots of flavors of grassy hops with notes of pilsener malts and a light to moderate amount of bitterness.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied and somewhat crisp and clean on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This pilsener is quite hoppy and has lots of aromas and flavors of grassy hops.

Sampled this one at the Flying Saucer and a couple other spots on a recent trip to Memphis. I was pretty impressed by its take on the style (though the can clearly says American Pilsner, and I believe the Saucer menu called it German), so I brought home a six-pack for review.

No clear date on the can. Poured into my short Becher.

L -- Clear, pale gold to nearly straw yellow with a dense, long-lasting white head.

S -- Herbal, slightly resinous, mildly citric hop notes up front. Light mellow bready and cracker malt character back. Mild DMS with warming.

T -- Mildly resinous and herbal hop characters up front with light crackery malts in balance. Light resinous to citric hop quality in the finish with an herbal bitterness in the aftertaste.

F -- Very soft mouthfeel with a light body.

O -- I'm not a big fan of resinous hop character in a Pils, but the Bomb has just the right touch without becoming an APA. The soft mouthfeel, light body and ABV make this a great session beer. I also wouldn't categorize this as a Czech Pils, the malt character is far too light, but I still stand by my opinion of this being a great drinker.

The soft waters of Memphis are ideal for making this often underappreciated style. Pilsner is NOT made by the macro-breweries of Miller and Budweiser; they do not do the style justice. Wise Acre have done a great job here, emulating the classic Czech style.

From a can poured into glass:

L: Bubbly, straw-like color, with bits of something floating through it. A nice head that laces well down my glass.
S: Straw-like aroma with a hint of honey.
T: Biscuit. Not too sweet with a nice bitterness at the end.
F: Outstanding carbonation.

This is a great session beer that is refreshing on a hot day. Delicious.

Weak tasting and on the bland side for my taste.
