3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a reddish amber with a thin white head that didn’t last long for me. Has a light, sweet, toasty malt aroma. Flavor is toast and caramel malt with a light, crisp, flowery hop flavor on the finish. I found this a bit boring, but very easy drinking.

Malt up front. Mild hop balance. Sips crisp and carbonated . More caramel malt flavor than I prefer in a red ale.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

From my notes from recent trip to Seattle and Portland...DRAFT at the brewery / pub in Silverdale WA. Pours red with thin head. Nose is mostly brown sugar and caramel....smooth, creamy tastes of the same. Smooth in the mouth. Decent...not outstanding,but good.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Goodness, I didn’t get the swell growler of this, only the bomber. Andre’s bottle looks cooler.
Pours an almost mahogany color with a thin head that doesn’t leave too much lace, but some.
Aroma is strong even though I’m just getting over a cold. Sweet like an Amber with with a slight pine/hop presence and a little...bready?
Flavor is great. Amber is one of my least liked styles and I like what SC has done with this. Lots of malt but it’s well balanced with the hops. Due to the aforementioned cold I can’t detect too many details but this is complex with caramel and some definite darker fruits in there.
Palate is full and on the crisp side. Overall this is really good and worth the drive over to this side of the Puget Sound to sample. Nicely done.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured from a bottle on an Alaska Air flight to Boise. Aroma is somewhat floral. Flavor is garden like, salty and creamy. Doesn’t have that normal harsh bitter bite of a red. Instead tastes more like a BBQ. Interesting beer!
