Not quite as red as cinder but pretty damn close, a piddle o’ brown in there. Malty earthiness erupts from the aroma, alongside mild grapefruit and pine with of touch of rye to spice it up. Tastes much the same but surely rich baked grains stand out. Well scaled hopping going on in this rouge magma that has a rich creamy flow.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours a mostly clear dark amber color with some reddish notes and a very large frothy light tan head on it. Nose has some moderate toffee notes coming off it, balanced with a fair amount of grassy hops to offset it. Taste ends up being just a bit sweet, up front, but has some hoppy bitterness throughout, which was a pleasant surprise for the style.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a reddish amber with a one finger off white head with nice lacing. Aroma is of toasted malts, caramel, sweet malts, pine, and some citrus. Taste is similar to the aroma with the addition of some toffee and grassy hops. Has a medium body with a slighty creamy mouthfeel and a semi bitter, medium finish. Overall, a tasty, well balnaced amber ale.

Nice reddish brown pour from a 22 bomber. Nice smooth sweet malt flavor with a hop kick. Felt like almost a brown and almost a red. Not bad at all.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bomber from Albertson’s. Pours deep amber with small but creamy head, lots of lacing. Hops come through in the aroma and stronger on the palate, almost IPA strength. Malt body balances well with hop attack. One of the best ambers I’ve tried.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Strong pins and amber malt aroma. Farmer rd hue with a frothy tan head. Not much flavor at first but follows with a bit of carbonation and a creamy malt after taste. Like most general reda. Not much start, pretty good finish.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Quite a bit of hops for a namer ale and also sweeter than malty. It’s even a bit too much in the sweetness for my taste. Overall, a pretty good beer.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pour is a hazy red with a average white head. Aroma is a decent caramel malt with pine hops. Flavor is an earthy malt with more of those pine hops. Kinda a thin mouth feel after the swallow but the malt and hops are present after the beer goes down. Way better than your average amber ale.
