on tap at Pearly Baker's Tavern in Easton PA on Tuesday. A long way from it's home in Tennesee. Had this at a couple of Knoxville brewfest in the past, but not reviewed as it's never a good idea to try and review festival beers.

Pale yellow hazy body. Good carbonation. Nice head initially, which disappeared halfway through.

Aroma is grass and hay, mildly earthy, slightly sweet.

Taste is quite enjoyable. There are lagers and their are lagers, and czech pilseners stand out in my book, though I'm not a big lager fan. Clean, balanced, extremely drinkable and refreshing, but with some strong flavor as well. The "farm" smells of freshly cut hay and grass come through nicely.

mouth is below medium, finish is slightly bitter.

Overall, a surprise to find it here in Eastern PA, but a nice surprise. Good sessionable thirst quenching beer.

Pours a pale yellow color with plenty of frothy head. good carbonation and lacing as well. The smell is definitely grass like. The taste is the same as well, grassy. Not the most flavorful brew either. Don't think I'll try another

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.
