Cloudy light brown,small beige head.Sweet malt nose.Sweet light toasty profile,faintly tart mid,light hop finish Alphadelic (2237) - Portland, Oregon, USA - FEB 29, 2012
A surprisingly dry and fruity red with a strong malt background and some powdery chocolate notes. It’s a little weighty for me to find it awesome for a session but it’s definitely something I will revisit every now and again. CampesinoTino (800) - Seattle, Washington, USA - FEB 5, 2012
Bomber. Amber colored as expected with a half-inch of tan head. The aroma has a fair amount of caramel and toasted malts in addition to some orange citrus and earthy hops notes. The taste is along the same lines with an equally strong emphasis on the caramel and bready malt characteristics backed by a more subtle citrus and herbal hops flavor. The body is mildly creamy with moderate carbonation and a malty, candied citrus finish. Pretty decent malt-forward NW Red with just enough hops to balance things out. I could see it paring well with brewpub fare. Reid (2541) - Salem, Oregon, USA - JAN 21, 2012

Semi sweet thick malty taste,again caramel,toast,milk chocolat slight hop bitterness at the end but this is a malt bomb.

This flavorful red ale pours a very hazy amber-red body with half an inch of off-white head that settles to a thin ring. The malt-dominated nose is toasty, caramely, and sweet-smelling, with a touch of hops offering aromas of tea and cut grass, but the nose is also a bit husky. The flavor generally mirrors the nose, with toasty, medium-sweet, and very caramely malt, as well as a toffee and lightly bitter, grassy, tea-like hop character, but unfortunately, there is also a noticeable grain huskiness in the finish that does detract from the final impression. Medium bodied on the palate with medium carbonation and a dry, slightly astringent finish. Not a bad beer, but that husky grain quality of the finish really starts getting in the way after a few sips.
Bottle. Pours a hazy amber brown with small head that disappears quickly. Heavy malts in the aroma. Taste is sweet and malty, no hoppiness to speak of. A bit thin. Decent and very drinkable, but not very complex. bu11zeye (13029) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - OCT 6, 2011
(22oz bottle) Pours a burnt orange body with a small cream head. Aroma of caramel, bread, toffee, cardboard, and orange. Flavor of caramel malt, bread, and oxidation with a dry, bitter finish. after4ever (8025) - Mukilteo, Washington, USA - SEP 25, 2011
Draft at ncbc. Pours a cloudy dark amber. Dense creamy white head. Big toasty caramel nose with pine overtones. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Toast, caramel, and pine on the mid palate. Mild bready finish. TBone (17581) - Pori, FINLAND - JUL 12, 2011
Bottled 0,65l (bought from Portland)
Deep red color, small off-white head. Caramelly, bready aroma. Medium-bodied, soft palate. Front is caramelly, then some toasted, ryeish maltyness. Finish has some hops and alcohol. Decent "Imperial Red" (err... working class red I mean).
