Gerbeer (3785) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 13, 2014
On tap. Pours a dark mahogany/red with light head. Vegetable hop aromas. Flavors of resin and sharp acidic malts. Not a fan.

luttonm (6482) - Seattle, Washington, USA - FEB 1, 2014
Draft at Mountlake Terrace brewpub. Fresh. caramel-amber malt bomb. caramel mahogany, tight foam. tart carbonation and hop bitterness. good tobacco-leather note. nice, solid, but not hitting the style i was expecting.

Appearance: deep, clear amber red with a huge, fluffy, frothy creamy tan head that rises unevenly above the lip of the glass in a slowly dissipating pillow; a surprisingly beautiful beer. Aroma: caramel grains, wet barley, honey, a hint of rye whiskey and toffee. Taste: smoothly, lightly sweet grains, caramel, a hint of toasted nuts and buttery toffee, with just a hint of herbal, piney hops. Finish: clean, crisp, almost lager-like, with a lingering toasty sweet note. Notes: I’m an admitted lover of Irish Red Ales, and this is one of the better versions I’ve ever had. Slightly sweet, not overly hopped like many American takes on the style, and a really good looking beer to boot. Plus, it was like $3.49 for a 22 oz bomber at Total Wine in Alexandria, VA. What’s not to love?

Poured from a chilled bottle into a glass. Reddish color with a medium head. Lacks any type of aroma. not really a fan of red ales. This one is not bad. Can’t pinpoint a specific taste.

Rrauth (1196) - North Carolina, USA - JUN 20, 2013
Bomber. Not much in terms of memorable. Better than a BMC but not by much. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Pours a clear reddish brown color with a moderate off-white head. Nose is awfully malty with a little bit of caramel in there. Taste is much the same, with a bit of toasting and a slightly bitter taste. OK, but not great.

chinchill (5071) - South Carolina, USA - FEB 8, 2013
UPDATED: MAR 14, 2016 Poured from a 22 oz bottle into a pint glass. (Revisited in March 2016 - averaged ratings). Pours a deep reddish-amber with a decent off-white head that is pretty durable and leaves great lacing. Smells notably hoppy on top of a mild malt base, but (sample 1 only) with a very faint musky note. The taste starts malty and good, but (sample 1 only) the musky off-flavor appears mid-taste and lingers into the mildly bitter aftertaste. Mouthfeel: very smooth a bit buttery; near medium body is slightly watery; medium carbonation.

Drake (13942) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 3, 2012
Bomber from Total Wine West Richmond, VA. Pours a clear amber color with a medium sized off-white head. Good head retention. Nutty and toffeeish aroma with herbal hops. The taste is toffee, berries, earthy notes and a bitter hop finish. Medium bodied. Decent.

fluffy (2472) - St Petersburg, Florida, USA - JUL 26, 2012
a completely solid irish ale if ever there was one. its a bit sweet on the palate, overtly like shortbread. but otherwise its quite good.
