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.

Draft pour. Pours reddish with a faint malt aroma. Flavor is mostly sweet malt flavor. Mild hops. Drinks easy. Nothing too special or different here, but not bad.

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.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

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.

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!

Rating #1916 - 2015.09.24 #CraftTakesSeattle Beer 15 - Bottleshare - Pours a ruby amber. Aroma is caramel, toffee, lemon rind. Nice toffee sweetness, mild grassy, spicy hop bitterness that is barely there. Roasty malt forward Irish red.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Pours an amber red color with no head. Nose is malty and grainy for an ale. Taste is sweet, malty and syrupy. Strong caramel, without any decent flavor or taste. Finishes just as poorly as it starts. Leave it. Quaff Score 5 / 10

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
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
