Bottle:   Tawny amber, moderate frothy off-white head, spotty lacing.   Soft grainy nose, a little bit of cocoa and nuttiness.   Toasty on the tongue, light pale fruit, nutiness, with that smidgen of cocoa.   A little dry, not as full bodied as I would like but still somewhat smooth.   Finishes bready, toasty, soft nuts and a bit of mealiness.   Lingering dry cocoa like notes after the finish.   Decent Amber, almost coming across as a Brown at times.

Poured from bomber into a pint glass. Pours a nice amber color with a smaller head.
Nice complexity to the aromas of malts, toffee, caramel, and some bitter notes too. Good depth and very aromatic.
Medium bodied with a real nice smooth and complete feel. Lacks a slight bit of depth and complexity but is very nice with flavors of caramel, toffee and a slight bit of malts.
This was a real good red ale. Very enjoyable and very drinkable.

A surprisingly dry and fruity red with a strong malt background and some powdery chocolate notes. Itís a little weighty for me to find it awesome for a session but itís definitely something I will revisit every now and again.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bomber. Amber colored as expected with a half-inch of tan head. The aroma has a fair amount of caramel and toasted malts in addition to some orange citrus and earthy hops notes. The taste is along the same lines with an equally strong emphasis on the caramel and bready malt characteristics backed by a more subtle citrus and herbal hops flavor. The body is mildly creamy with moderate carbonation and a malty, candied citrus finish. Pretty decent malt-forward NW Red with just enough hops to balance things out. I could see it paring well with brewpub fare.
