Amber color with small foamy head. Fruity hop aroma. Caramel malt with ample but not overpowering grassy-citrus hops. Also notes of molasses, rye and even a touch of nuttiness. Good balance between malt and hops. Solid red ale.

What is a double red ale anyway? Why doesn’t this just become another style, like an American Strong Ale? At any rate, this was reasonable, with a pronounced hop front and plausible balance of hops and malts. (on tap at Republic, Minneapolis)

Bomber. Cherry wood with light orange head that quickly fades. Tropical fruit and resinous hops, caramel, and malty aromas. Piney bitterness that lingers. Body is medium with fizzy carbonation.

Orange pour with a white head. The aroma is full of red malt, earth and dirt. The flavor is more of the same, with a lot of the reddish malt notes I am not a big fan of. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

22oz bomber split with Anndiesel. Deep burgundy stained glass-red color, foamy glass lacing head. I’m not the biggest Amber fan, but this one is really quite nice. Big smooth malt tones, with some definite sweet fruity amber malt tones, but balanced out by rich caramel and other specialty malts. Quality hop balance, give its a citrus, bubblegum edge. Solid offering.
