COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Gold Medal Winner at the 2009 Great American Beer Festival. Silver Medal Winner at the 2010 World Beer Cup. This handsome ale is created by balancing a selection of crystal and caramel malts, then moderately hopped resulting in a rich, full flavored satisfying brew.

Bomber. Pretty standard Red ale. Definitely malt forward, yet very accessible and drinkable.

Bomber pours clear amber-ish copper with tan head. The aroma has some roasted malt notes mixing with sweet dark fruity esters such as cherries and prunes. The taste is much the same with modest amounts of roasted malts, grainy malts and a bit of earthiness all blending together along with sweet prunes, dates and cherries. The hops this beer has are well off in the background and provide only snippets of spicy and earthy like hoppiness.

brokensail (10530) - Orange County, California, USA - AUG 9, 2011
A: The beer pours a light amber color with a fair amount of orange and a creamy off-white head. S: There is a fair amount of citrus hop character with some pine notes to it. A light floral character to go along with toasted malt and a slight sweetness of toffee and bread. T: Lots of malt flavor. Heavy on the bread and toast with a bit of toffee and caramel. The hop flavors are not quite as intense as the aromas. Citrus, grass, and floral notes with a light bitterness. M: Medium in body with a medium level of carbonation. O: Not a bad red ale. I liked the aroma a bit better than the nose, however.

StuPreston (5) - Arizona, USA - JUL 22, 2011 does not count
Poured from a can purchased at Total Wine. Iíve had this one at the brewery in Flagstaff. Beaver Street makes great beer. Aroma: sweet, rich. Smells close to a lager, but the red/amber ale comes through. Appearance. More of an amber than a red. Virtually no head on the pour. Taste: full character followed by a bitter aftertaste; a little drier than most reds. Palate: great volume in the mouth; craft comes through Overall: Order this one again. Right up there with my favorite reds.

cbkschubert (2900) - BFE, Arizona, USA - JUL 12, 2011
12 oz. can from Plaza Liquors - Pours a hazy deep amber color with a one finger thick off white head. Aroma is faint toasted malt. Pitiful! Faint spotty lacing. Flavor is light hops and light caramel malt. The hops linger in the finish. Light to medium body. This beer was a disappointment. Still, itís worth a try.

highibus (706) - Vail, Arizona, USA - MAY 28, 2011
Nice red color with white head. Decent lacing but not lasting. Aroma is decent, malty and sweet. Flavor has a bit of cardboard. A bit too much for me. Malty with a bit of hops but just a bit off.

GreatLibations (1854) - Last Supper, Arizona, USA - MAY 14, 2011
A light copper amber color with a good head that reduces to a few spattered pancake remnants. Smells of sweet caramel and pine. Full nectar with good carbonation. Malty with mild sweetness. There is a defined resin character that clings as the beer bitters up on the finish.
