COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Halloween is time for our annual Evil Dead Red specialty brew. Vivid mahogany color, good head formation and retention. Rich, chewy, toasty, malty flavors perfectly balanced by a moderate hoppy bitterness. The aroma starts with a pleasant hop aroma followed by a nice malty sweetness. Well-rounded and well-balanced. Smooth, medium-bodied. Lush and rich on the palate with a semi-dry finish

bhensonb (10816) - Woodland, California, USA - JUL 14, 2014
Bomber from The Davis Beer Shoppe. Pours very dark and ruddy with a slight foamy beige/tan head. Aroma has lots of hop - seems very resin. Med ++ body. Foamy carbonation. Flavor is somewhat roasty malt with a great deal of complex hop. Itís much more bitter than not. Bitter and sweet seem to oscillate. Itís really tasty ale.

(bottle - 22 oz) Deep dark amber pour with white head. Pine resin and big malt in the aroma with a citrus hop undertone. Bitter hops at the start with no trace of the citrus that I got from the aroma. Surprisingly clean finish though. Very mild aftertaste.

jgb9348 (4664) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - FEB 10, 2014
Ridiculously deep amber coloured body with a very nice ruby glow and a thick, four centimetre tall tan head - looks great. Aroma of alcohol, toasted malt, toffee, rich citrus, some light grapefruit and a bunch of caramelised sugars, all with a bready and thick smell. Medium-bodied; Assertive hop character that shows some resin and pine at first then mellows out to a grapefruit and citrus character and then finishes with a good pungent maltiness and a relatively mild sweet flavour. Aftertaste shows a good bite with the malt coming out most and some alcohol and toffee flavours, but the hops show up at the very tail end. Overall, a good amber for sure, and a nice beer all around; Not to the level of most other beers from AleSmith, but a great drink and definitely nice to sample! I sampled this 65 cL bottle purchased from Whole Foods in New York, New York (Bowery) on 21-November-2013 for US$7.99 sampled at home in Washington on 10-February-2014 a couple of days before heading back up to New York.

2013 bottle drank a few months old Feb 2014. Pours bright copper with a big rocky tan head long lasting with great lace. The aroma is a big blast of dank and fruity sweet hops on a caramel and soft grain canvas. The flavor is at at first nicely meshed full sweetness and strong bitterness with the latter emerging with strong pine, light and not unpleasant metal, spice, red currants without the tartness, and riding out into a long deep blunted clean bitterness. The feel is full but not heavy, lightly soap and soft, though lingers with a bit of spice and stickiness. This is my first proper beer after 5 weeks off drinking and itís a lovely welcome and firm hop handshake. Thanks Alesmith.

blankboy (5979) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 21, 2014
[Bottle (660ml)] Pours a deep ruby-amber with a large lasting frothy beige head. Some lacing on the glass. Nice aroma of hops, citrusy and earthy, along with some fruit, bready caramel malt and light sugary notes. Flavour is surprisingly hoppy for the style, in a good way, again citrusy and earthy, along with a good amount of caramel malt, fruit, light brown sugar and a moderate to big bitter finish. Medium to full bodied. One of the better Reds youíll ever have.

sudomorph (517) - Barrie, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 18, 2014
650ml bottle. Pours a clear amber red with an off-white, film and ring head. Aroma has big notes of grapefruit, dark fruits, yeast, and a malty, breadyness. Taste is a balanced bitter with notes of bread, caramel, and dark fruits. Ends with a fruity, assertive bitter. Medium-full body with a medium carbonation. Clean in the mouth with a great amount of carbonation to keep it refreshing. Overall very nice. Great hop notes with a solid mouth feel. Cheers!

beerbaaron (1160) - Arizona, USA - JAN 16, 2014
Pours clear reddish amber. Large creamy beige head. Aroma is wonderfully sticky hoppy. Citrus, grapefruit, some pine. Balanced by some nice caramely malty sweetness. Lighter medium body. Super easy drinking. Well rounded and balanced indeed. Fruity, citrus, some nice grapefruit and pine bitterness. Solid bitterness. Just enough caramel sweetness. Pleasant light earthy dryness leaves you ready for another sip.

MarinEvelyn (536) - Wisconsin, USA - JAN 16, 2014
The aroma is just as the description says, very well-balanced hops and sweet malt. A little roast, citrus, pine. Taste starts out sweet malty for me then turns more bitter, but with glistens of sweetness here and there. Fairly dry, hoppy/bitter finish, with a decent amount of pine.

12/26/13. Bottle purchased and shared by cbfobes at Against the Grain. Red brown pour with a small khaki head. Malty aroma, mild hoppiness shows citrus, earthy, and floral aspects. This was begging to be drank fresher. Malty flavor as well, caramel and biscuit, more light citrus and earthy hops. Would love to try again fresh around Halloween.
