COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This Northwest Red ale is malty and full bodied with a deep, rich red color. Proletariat Red reminds us that work is the curse of the drinking class!

Draft at portland OR pizza place. Nitro. Huge nitro head copper red color. Aroma is masked by the nitro head, but smells a little caramel. Grains, some caramel, biscuit. Kind If funky tasting. Would not get again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bomber from portland, or. Caramel malt aroma with notes of hops and spice. Pours pours reddish copper colored with one finger of off-white head with excellent retention and no lacing. Very malt forward flavor to start with the sweet caramel malt dominating to start. Finishes dry with a bit of the spice and hops coming through at the end. Nice, well balanced red. Definitely one of the best I've come across.

maxwelldeux (3452) - Everett, Washington, USA - APR 13, 2014
Bottle. Pours a clear amber color with relatively little head on it. Nose is malt forward with some caramel and toast coming through, but has a subtle grassy hop presence. Taste is well-balanced, being neither bitter nor sweet. Lots of toasting coming through. Not bad at all.

gramity (1307) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 24, 2013
Small ivory head that was mostly lasting, virtually no lacing, transparent, no carbonation observed, and a red hue. Nose was malty, caramel, hoppy, and nutty. Flavor was sweet, malty, nutty, and hoppy. Mouthfeel was smooth. Medium body.

Beergeek23322 (2130) - Chesapeake, Virginia, USA - AUG 12, 2013
August 2012 from bottle. Dark amber color with an offwhite head. Malt, spice, caramel and sweet aromas. Sweet on the palate, but good Summer beer.

mikedR (1075) - Gilbert, Arizona, USA - JUN 18, 2013
Solid, flavorful red ale. Malt aroma, which carries through strongly to the flavor. Some spiciness, but this is a distinctly malt-forward beer. But no hoppiness -- which surprises me considering it's labeled as a northwest red ale. Very smooth, very drinkable, and recommended. B+. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Ratman197 (9454) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - MAY 28, 2013
Bomber poured a clear reddish amber with a lingering ring of amber foam. Aromas of carmel, toasted malt and earthiness. Palate was light bodied and crisp with a dry finish. Flavors of toasted malt, carmel and earthiness with a crisp dry lingering earthy finish.

Dogbrick (7585) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAY 20, 2013
Sample from firkin at the 6th Annual Rogue Firkin Fest at Green Dragon. Copper-colored with a medium off-white head that diminishes steadily. Small patches of lacing on the glass. Aroma of malt, caramel and hops. Medium body with flavors of caramel malt, citrus and earthy hops. The finish is sweet with a malty aftertaste. Decent overall.

Aluman (21) - Grants, New Mexico, USA - MAY 7, 2013
While this red isn’t the world’s best its not a bad one either. It pours a kind of muddy river red, tastes slightly on the bitter side. Really pleasing hop odors when you open it.

maekchu (1943) - Hirakata, JAPAN - MAR 9, 2013
Draught at The New Old Lompoc 5th Quadrant. From notes. A bit like an amber ale but with less body and a bit more hopping. Some malt flavor. Good balance.
