A Pacific NW style red ale brewed with the highest quality Crystal malts and copious amounts of Nugget hops. The Rose City Red will win you over with its red tinted color, amazing aroma and complex flavor. A perfect brew for contemplating the return of the roses.

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!

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.

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.

Fatehunter (1201) - 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. It’s a good, bold red ale.

Reid (1897) - Salem, Oregon, USA - JAN 13, 2013
22oz bottle from"Lifesource" in Salem. $4.59 Pours a dark,ruddy red colour with a large and thick light tan head. In the aroma its nugget hops to the front,herbal alightly grassy with a good caramel malt aroma to the end. Taste is a fair balance of the caramel hop and the hops with the malts just winning out. OK mouth feel. Nice drinkable amber. Good beer.

caesar (5118) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - SEP 10, 2014
Bottle @ de Molen, small sample. Almost clear amber color, short frothy off-white head. Aroma is a bit hoppy, bit pine and grapefruit, quite some toffee and caramel, reddish/irish amber ale like. Medium bitter in taste, slight caramelly and toffee sweetness, hint of nuttyness. Bit dry as well. Decent stuff.

5000 (6300) - 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!
