Cloudy dark amber to brown color with frothy head. mild aroma of caramel with light fruity impression. Good body, round mouthfeel; strong flavor of caramel and dark caramel, light roastiness, light residual sweetness; it has some lingering fruity touch and floral undertones; strong bitterness; roasted nuts in the final.
Solid beer, well brewed, with an original delicate touch.

bhensonb (12171) - Woodland, California, USA - MAY 12, 2013
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 thereís 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. Itís even pleasant to the nose when the glass is raised each quaff. Good beer. Finishes with lots of hop bitter.

(Alameda Rose City Red) Bottle at home, 650 ml, served into a tulip. ABV 6.4% Deep red to dark amber in colour, clear body, tall and thick head, creamy, light beige in colour. Very good retention, heavy lacing on the glass. Aroma of hops, citrus, light grapefruit, flowers, nuts, caramel. Good taste, nicely hopped. Citrus, less nutty than the aroma indicated, grapefruit, pine, floral notes on the finish. Quite bitter there too, with the bitterness lasting for long. Medium body, good carbonation. Quite dry palate. Very good.

Fatehunter (1614) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - APR 18, 2014
Pours two fingers of head on a cloudy dark red colored body. The aroma is rich malt, a little lemon, caramel and flowers. The taste is mild lemon bitterness at first that is quickly balanced out by the big malt bill. Kind of barnyardish overall. The texture is crisp with moderate carbonation. Itís a good, bold red ale.

Bottle. Pours a reddish amber with a good, yellowish-brown head. Aroma is hoppily fruity. Some wood and pine, some caramel and spiciness. Crystal malt. Taste has a lot of caramelly crystal malt as well. Some wooden tones and pine. Fairly full with fairly decent carbonation. Pretty good all around.
