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.

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.

Pours a beautiful deep copper (some might say red...) with a quickly dissipating, even with an aggressive pour, tan head. Strong sweet; caramel and toffee malt notes both in flavor and aroma. Smooth and quite sweet on the palate. Overall not a bad Irish red, easy drinking for a malty focus.

Earthy, roasty, woody, malty. Little head but lively carbonation tickles the lips. Laudable hop-malt balance. Slightly tangy. Bready modest pleasant aftertaste.

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 doesn’t 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 don’t like is that I won’t get any when I go back to California.
