Prufrockstar (794) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JAN 30, 2013
Bomber. Aroma is bread, caramel, grain, dirty dishsoap. Muddy red/brown, white head that dissipates to a ring. Taste is caramel-sweet, grainy, only the slightest bit of bitterness. Light body, soft carbonation, short finish. Sticky mouth residue long after it’s done, but during each sip the texture is thin. Overall: No idea how this is for the style (my first Irish ale as far as I can remember), but

Pours a beautiful deep copper (some might say red...) with a quickly dissipating, even with an aggressive pour, tan head. Strong sweet; caramel and toffee malt notes both in flavor and aroma. Smooth and quite sweet on the palate. Overall not a bad Irish red, easy drinking for a malty focus.

CampesinoTino (751) - Seattle, Washington, USA - APR 27, 2012
Bomber. Dark copper colored with an inch of tan foam. Mostly bread dough, apricot and brown sugar in the aroma. The taste is heavy on the toffee and toasted caramel malt flavors as well as some orange citrus, honey and smoked grain notes. Mouthfeel is mildly creamy with heavy carbonation and a dry, malty finish. A little one-dimensional but a decent Red Ale nonetheless.

AmEricanbrew (5575) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - OCT 31, 2011
Clear amber color with ivory sheen. Nutty, soapy, tea leaf, caramel aromas. light bodied. Lightly sweet spicy caramel, nutty flavors with a tea leaf twang to finish--decent

thirdeye11 (5479) - Dallas, Texas, USA - SEP 29, 2011
(22oz bomber thanks to bu11zeye) clear amber-orange with barely a ring of tan bubbles. Nose of honey, marshmallows, subdued nose overall. Taste of cola root, earthy, honey, and under-carbonated.

dwyerpg (4436) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - JUN 17, 2011
Smells a little funky to me. Solid red color. A bit sweet in the flavor, but not real full or flavorful. Just eh, okay.

Aubrey (3430) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - JUN 2, 2011
Draft at Bushwhackers in Port Angeles: Deep mahogany. Crisp. Lively carbonation. A little toasted and nutty with a subtle toffee-like sweetness. Very mild bitterness. Candy-coated sweetness in aftertaste. Easy to drink and sessionable (albeit on the sweet side), but not overly exciting.

bhensonb (10692) - Woodland, California, USA - APR 28, 2011
Bomber from Malt & Vine. Pours copper with a bubbly beige head. Aroma is sweetish caramel. Med body. Flavor starts like cola. Not very bitter. Makes me think of marzen. Does finish more bitter than not.

bottle, thanks to bu11zeye, red amber color with a buttery banana and caramel aroma, flavors of malty bananas, caramel, cashew butter
