"Nice balance of sweet malt and some light bitter citrus hops, but again, there’s a commonality with their smaller beers and this is another that is pretty average...."

Solid NW Red Ale. Varies from batch to batch. Can be thin at times and all the way to creamy when served on nitro.

Bomber from Oregon. Very enjoyable beer w/malty, roast, biscuit, & caramels working together w/a slight nod to the hops. I could drink this often.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

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.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
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+.
