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 itís 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

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 didnít get the swell growler of this, only the bomber. Andreís bottle looks cooler.
Pours an almost mahogany color with a thin head that doesnít leave too much lace, but some.
Aroma is strong even though Iím 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 itís well balanced with the hops. Due to the aforementioned cold I canít 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.

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.

tap, medium copper pour with medium white head, wonderfully sweet malt aroma very little hop aroma present, taste same as aroma, very caramel like with almost a hint of fruit, no hop bitter, mild hop flavor in end, palate very crisp with light lingering sweet malt, taken aback by how much I enjoyed this one.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Malt dominated beer that is still extremely drinkable. Aroma smells like condensed milk with caramelized apples! Color is an amazing dark brown/red. Taste is a malty caramel with a great hope balanced background.

Not much aroma. Amber in color. Malt taste but falls flat with no body. OK, but donít plan on drinking again
