Solid, flavorful red ale. Malt aroma, which carries through strongly to the flavor. Some spiciness, but this is a distinctly malt-forward beer. But no hoppiness -- which surprises me considering it's labeled as a northwest red ale. Very smooth, very drinkable, and recommended. B+.

Serving: from tap at The Beer Junction.
Aroma: lightly piney hoppy.
Appearance: average-sized, creamy, off-white, initial head with excellent lacing and fully diminishing longevity. Clear, flat, amber/orange body.
Taste: moderately bitter initial flavor and lightly acidic finish with chocolate overtones and average duration.
Palate: medium bodied with oily texture and soft carbonation.
Overall: a great beer. I would like to drink this again. zoucrew102 (2245) - - APR 26, 2014
Bomber from portland, or. Caramel malt aroma with notes of hops and spice. Pours pours reddish copper colored with one finger of off-white head with excellent retention and no lacing. Very malt forward flavor to start with the sweet caramel malt dominating to start. Finishes dry with a bit of the spice and hops coming through at the end. Nice, well balanced red. Definitely one of the best I've come across. Reid (2675) - Salem, Oregon, USA - JAN 21, 2012

Pours a darks reddish brown with a small off white ring. Aroma is caramel malts with an earthy hop prescence. Taste is a nice earthy hop bitterness with toffee and caramel malt backing. Nice beer. Aluman (21) - Grants, New Mexico, USA - MAY 7, 2013
While this red isn’t the world’s best its not a bad one either. It pours a kind of muddy river red, tastes slightly on the bitter side. Really pleasing hop odors when you open it. Newk (299) - - MAY 21, 2012
Poured from bomber into a pint glass. Pours a nice amber color with a smaller head.
Nice complexity to the aromas of malts, toffee, caramel, and some bitter notes too. Good depth and very aromatic.
Medium bodied with a real nice smooth and complete feel. Lacks a slight bit of depth and complexity but is very nice with flavors of caramel, toffee and a slight bit of malts.
This was a real good red ale. Very enjoyable and very drinkable.
