On Tap at BrewPub. Pours out a clear amber topped with a small head. A nice sweet and wood flavor on this one.

Aubrey (3482) - 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.

KansaiBeerLvrs (2977) - Kyoto, JAPAN - APR 10, 2014
This Irish Red Ale pours a reddish amber brown with a caramel malty aroma that has a hint of earthiness to it. The beer’s medium bodied while the carbonation gives it a sharp mouthfeel. The taste is soft caramel, bitter cacao & earthy herbal hops in the finish. Good stuff, a well made red.

beerinmarch (2830) - Washington, USA - JUL 26, 2005
Cloudy orange with a white head. Very fruity citrus hops in the aroma with a touch of sweetness trying to show behind it. Very hoppy amber with a very fruity hop finish, kinda wet hop taste that kinda reminds me of cantalope. Very light on the palate, but still refreshing.

IndianaRed (2805) - Boise, Idaho, USA - APR 29, 2007
On Tap at the brewpub. Clear red amber with a small fleeting head and only spece of off white lacing. Aroma of medium woody malts. 5lavor is sweet and woody malts wwith very little hops. Palate is moderate and like the othres I had tonight’ a bit chalky feeling. Tasty though.

Capa (2265) - Kitsap, Washington, USA - APR 17, 2015
Toasted malts win the day on this amber ale. Not much more to say. Red with a tan head. Medium bodied. Lots of toast. Decent.

bitbucket (2160) - Kirkland, Washington, USA - FEB 15, 2008
Bomber. Pours clear coppery amber with a lacy off-white head. Thin aroma, just a touch of caramel, dust, earthy hops. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Sweet, malty nutty toffee taste. The finish is just lightly bitter, with the same earthy quality as the nose. It almost seems like they’re positioning this as a gateway brew, not too assertive, but with a enough flavor to draw you in.

robforbes (2083) - Bremerton, Washington, USA - JAN 21, 2008
purchased at central market in poulsbo, washington. pour is clear copper-red with a thin beige head that within 30 seconds is gone, no lacing. smell is of grass, roasted malt, touch of nuts, small scent of bread dough. taste is weak, watery, some malt, bit sour, some fruit, wood. overall not impressed, i would agree with Oakes in that it is a bit like a ch-ch-cherry cola.

Everything Silver City makes seems to make me smile, and this was no exception. Although I am not a huge fan of reds, this one played the part well. A notable carmel sweetness and a bright red glow; this guy is very sessionable for late spring, early summer days. If more reds were lilke this, I might have had a different preconceived notion on the genre. Woo hoo!
