22oz bottle from riversideAK - thanks, Alex! Nice bright amber pour with a fluffy cream head. Aroma is fairly hoppy, more or less as youíd expect for a PNW brew, in this category or otherwise. Slightly thin mouthfeel but decent smooth, and more than drinkable. Semi-sweet malts are balanced nicely by grassy hops to give this one a liveliness often lacking in the style. Pretty decent.

Gold Metal Winner at GABF. While in Silverdale WA, I had the opportunity to try all of Silver city Brewing Companies beers. My favorite is the The Red Amber beer, which is a beer that is "drinkable" and doesnít weigh heavy on you unless you drink too much. Although not a hop-head type of a beer, this is a well balanced beer with a crispy finish. The only thing I donít like is that I wonít get any when I go back to California.

Deceptive that itís called "Red" but is an amber ale. Definitely wouldnít have ordered it. Pours a transparent amber with a smallish white head. Decent balance, but itís lacking ingredients. This tastes like something the Ram would brew Ė intended for those who donít care much for flavor, and are just looking for something quaffable. Slightly metallic Ė needs a much fuller mouthfeel to counter the carbonation. A bit fruity, but not much to it other than a balance of weak hops and caramel malts.
