22. Grainy, hazy opaque dark amber with bright rubied highlights. Light tan sudsy film and lace. Sweet bready nose with minimal differentiation. Light body with slight carb and not much else happening on the attack. Mid-palate opens up without too much fanfare and carries through with light caramel and brown bread happening. Bit of a disappointment, really. Clean finish. The whole thing is really not very interruptive.

22oz bottle from riversideAK - thanks, Alex! Nice bright amber pour with a fluffy cream head. Aroma is fairly hoppy, more or less as you’d expect for a PNW brew, in this category or otherwise. Slightly thin mouthfeel but decent smooth, and more than drinkable. Semi-sweet malts are balanced nicely by grassy hops to give this one a liveliness often lacking in the style. Pretty decent.

This was a pretty nice red ale that had a good malt and finish. Poured a light red color with alot of nice head.

Bomber from Malt & Vine. Pours copper with a bubbly beige head. Aroma is sweetish caramel. Med body. Flavor starts like cola. Not very bitter. Makes me think of marzen. Does finish more bitter than not.

Smells a little funky to me. Solid red color. A bit sweet in the flavor, but not real full or flavorful. Just eh, okay.

On tap at the brewpub.
Clear deep amber colour. Sweet malty caramel aroma, brown sugar, toffee, a very faint dose of earthiness as well. Flavour is quite sweet and nutty up front with a bit of herbal and spice toward the finish. A bit too sweet for my tastes.

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.

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.

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