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.

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

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.

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.

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+.
