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!

I wonder why an amber is classed as IPA. On to the investigation of a bomber from Big Star in Seattle. Pours ruddy amber with a slight beige head. Smells like light roast malt without much hop. Flavor is moderately roasted malt with not much hop. This is not an IPA IMHO. Pretty blah amber IMHO.

Bomber. Rust red in color with about an inch of fluffy white foam. Aroma has slight chocolate, toasty malts, some biscuit and a faint whiff of citrus. More similar in aroma to a brown ale than a "red" ale. Flavor is overly bitter with a pronounced malt background. One of my least liked beers Iíve had from this brewer so far.

A little spice and sweet in the aroma. Some hop at beginning and end. Pretty red color. Some sugar in the flavor. On nitro, which fades fairly quickly.

[2962-20100626] Tap. Fresh yeasty bread dough aroma has some leafy greens. Clear, dark amber body with a quick foamy white head. More yeasty bread dough flavour has some bitter notes with a green hop aftertaste. Medium body. Nice yeast characteristics, good balance.

2010-06-26. Dark red body, with a thin off-white head. 3+ Flavour is pretty sweet and malty, with touches of caramel. Very light bitterness. Sweet malty aroma, caramel notes. Average palate is a touch light for the beer and under carbonated. Simple but enjoyable. On Tap at the brewpub, Portland.

Sampled at the SpringBeerFest in Portland. Dark dirty amber, fruity hop aroma. Palate is malt driven, toasty, with peachy hop character. Nice.

boFNjackson (4200) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAR 30, 2010
Bottle... Poured reddish/amber with a bubbly, white head. Aroma of hops and malts. A tad over carbonated which didnít support the fruity tones of the ale yeast. Hop bitterness lingered towards the end which was rounded out by a malt sweetness.

BillKismet (3866) - Seattle, Washington, USA - FEB 27, 2010
Red-hued amber with a decent head. Rich malty nose with a dusted quality that leans dismayingly closer to wet shoe. A lightly malty body. Ok for the proletariat, but not up to par for the discriminating boozer.
