Bomb Lager
(Bomb Beer Company)


Bomb Beer Company is new to the beer scene having just recently released their one and only beer, Bomb Lager, in cans. Based in NYC, the company actually contract brews/cans at the Lion Brewery in Pennsylvania. 


From the Bomb site:


"Bomb is a traditional Bavarian Helles brewed with some of the best malts around.No adjunct. No surprises. Just quality ingredients from quality suppliers."


Here we go...


Pour - very pale yellow pour with a nice white inch of head. Lacing is excellent for the style with heavy drapes hanging around the glass.


Aroma - a decent whiff of malt and very pronounced sour fruit notes. Any hop presence is noticeably absent.  

Taste - pretty sour at the start and a middle that was almost fruitlike. Taste is not unpleasant, but is also rather neutral.  Finishes with a quick flash of hoppiness before turning watery and leaving very little aftertaste. Body is thin, which makes it very easy to drink but also makes it easy to forget that you’re drinking. Wish this one had more hops to keep me interested.


Overall - tastes much more like a typical light lager than a Helles Bock. Bomb Lager isn’t undrinkable, but it is rather unremarkable. Put a Naragansett Bock and a Bomb Lager in front of me; I’ll drink the ‘Gansett while checking out the artwork on the Bomb can.


Note - There is no actual "Bomb Brewery" in NYC, that is simply where the company has their office. The artwork on the cans is done by Billy the Artist, a NYC artist whom you've probably seen work from elsewhere - it's hard to miss. Bomb Beer Company is releasing several Bomb Lager cans with different artwork on them. They are currently only available in New York State.
