This big red ale has a rich, malt flavor, good hop balance and a unique dry-hopped finish.

Some alcohol in nose. Rich carmel malts tending towards molasses. Some earthy hop character in aroma too. Coppery red with respectable british style head. Good lacing. Nicely sweet with crystal malts character and just a touch of bitterness. Creamy mouthfeel. Quite nice.

Bomber bottle fresh from brewery. Pours reddish amber with a bit of cloudy haze and a thick off-white head that subsides to a nice thin cover. Carmel sweet, slightly roasty, nutty malt aroma gives way to some citrusy hops and spicy notes. Flavor is surprisingly dry, but quite nice. The spice and roasty nut notes come through, as does the hop bitterness with just a bit of dry hop finishing character. Light-medium bodied, moderate carbonation, and quite smooth and creamy. Pretty nice beer!

Tastes of malt and "My First Homebrew Kit". Below par beer, unless your buddy had told you he made it. Then it would be average. Color was light brown not really amber and taste was of a malty pale ale with zero hopps. Pass.
