Solid beer, well brewed, with an original delicate touch.

Bomber from Made in Oregon. Pours dark ruddy amber with a foamy beige head. Aroma is resin over roast malt. Med body or better. Flavor is lightly nutty roast malt, but there’s a lot of hop - mostly resin? - or is it spicy/herby?- anyway it drinks a s--- load better than the vast majority of ambers. Thankfully this amber is far from a drain pour. It’s even pleasant to the nose when the glass is raised each quaff. Good beer. Finishes with lots of hop bitter.

Bottle gushes upon opening it. Amber pour with a tall off-white head. Nose of floral hops, pine, citrus, and bread. Some green apple, toast, toffee, and water. Flavor is somewhat sweet and malty with floral and pine hops. Kind of watery. Some toast, toffee, bread, and green apple.

Ratman197 (9696) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - MAR 27, 2013
Bomber poured a clear redish amber with a lasting creamy amber head. Aromas of carmel, earthiness, grassiness, pine and a hint of citrus. Palate was medium bodied and smooth with a dry finish. Flavors of carmel, earthiness, pine and grapefruit with asmoth dry bitter lingering malty finish. One of the best Reds I’ve had!

mcberko (6306) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 18, 2013
22 oz. bottle, pours a dark amber / brown with a small beige head. Aroma brings out dry earthy malts, some slight caramel undertones, and a considerable hop profile. Flavour is very well-balanced, with tons of dry earthy, bready malts, and a great hop punch without being too overbearing. Highly drinkable and sessionable. Finishes dry and earthy. Great stuff.

5000 (6241) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - AUG 11, 2013
Bottle:   Darker side of Amber, moderate frothy tannish head, nice lacing.   Soft bready aroma, a little grainy, slight pine like hops.   Malty up front, a little bready, citrus peel, pith, minor sweetness.   Seems well balanced.   Could stand to be a touch sweeter.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Less malty on the finish, more like a Pale Ale in its pith and peel bitterness.   Not bad, if it were a bit more maltier and sweeter it would be spot on!

Amber reddish in color, clear with a thin head. Very nice amber ale flavors and finish. This was a tasty easy drinking amber ale.

CapFlu (4500) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 3, 2014
Thin white frothy head atop a deep reddish brown body. Nose of red malt and strong orange hop bitterness. Hops really are overpowering and malt is toasty and bold. Pretty plain.
