2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap at Coalition, pours an opaque dark amber with a small white head. Aroma has a good balance of resinous hops and bready caramel malt. Flavour is dry, with bready malts and a touch of resinous hops - less hops than in the nose. Bland and weak, but clean and decently balanced.

We had Red Ale night back in January and this wasn't our favorite. Cheers from the Cannery Row Beer Club!

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours two fingers of head on a cloudy dark straw colored body.
The aroma is damp grains and lemon.
The taste starts with sharp bitter note, quickly gets malty but not too sweet. Finishes with a slightly metallic bitter note.
The texture is crisp.
It’s fine, malty ale.

"Solid red. Hybrid Irish/hoppy amber. Sweetly hoppy, malty and nutty all at the same time. A little thin but not lacking in flavor or aroma...

Bomber. Pours a clear dark amber color with a medium light tan head. A light caramel and toast nose. The flavor is light bitter hops, some caramel, maybe sweet toffee, pretty dry overall. Light, pretty nice. A bit of fruity hops, medium orange peel in the finish.

Draft at Coalition Brewing in Portland, OR on 4 June 2013.
Poured a slightly hazy amber. Grainy malt and some grassy hop on the nose. Hop resin flavours offset by some nice roasty malt notes on the palate. Very balanced and drinkable for a red.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Good to be rater #10. Bomber from Made in Oregon. Pours translucent dark amber - maybe a touch of ruddiness. Slight creamy beige/tan head. Aroma is mixed fruit over smooth slightly roasted malt. Med body. Lots of flavor - no one flavor is too intense - but there’s quite a mix. Fruit/toffee/chocolate I’d say among others. It’s bitter enough to say it’s towards dry. Finish is sort of a chocolate tinged earthiness. It’s a good beer, and much nicer to quaff than most ambers.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
22oz bottle from "Lifesource" in Salem.
Pours very dark amber, really brown with a large,rocky lighter tan head.
Nice malt driven aromas..chocolate,biscuits, and caramel ..a little earthy.
More resiny hop bitterness in the taste but the malts still dominate..caramel,treacle..slightly burnt bread..very nice.
Great thick and smooth palate to this one..goes down a treat.
Overall excellent amber.
