Bomber. Pours clear coppery amber with a lacy off-white head. Thin aroma, just a touch of caramel, dust, earthy hops. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Sweet, malty nutty toffee taste. The finish is just lightly bitter, with the same earthy quality as the nose. It almost seems like theyre positioning this as a gateway brew, not too assertive, but with a enough flavor to draw you in.

Bottle. Pours an amber red color with no head. Nose is malty and grainy for an ale. Taste is sweet, malty and syrupy. Strong caramel, without any decent flavor or taste. Finishes just as poorly as it starts. Leave it. Quaff Score 5 / 10

Angeloregon (2055) - Portland, Oregon, USA - FEB 27, 2007
Everything Silver City makes seems to make me smile, and this was no exception. Although I am not a huge fan of reds, this one played the part well. A notable carmel sweetness and a bright red glow; this guy is very sessionable for late spring, early summer days. If more reds were lilke this, I might have had a different preconceived notion on the genre. Woo hoo!

Prufrockstar (2052) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 30, 2013
Bomber. Aroma is bread, caramel, grain, dirty dishsoap. Muddy red/brown, white head that dissipates to a ring. Taste is caramel-sweet, grainy, only the slightest bit of bitterness. Light body, soft carbonation, short finish. Sticky mouth residue long after its done, but during each sip the texture is thin. Overall: No idea how this is for the style (my first Irish ale as far as I can remember), but

zgaier (1927) - Coral Springs, Florida, USA - JAN 13, 2014
Pours a red brown with a beige head and sweet malty, grainy aroma. Taste is light and not very flavorful, some sweet malt, caramel, and bread notes but wasnt a fan

Nocturne (1927) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - OCT 21, 2015
355ml bottle. Deep amber/red shade. Lots of foam. Nose is waxy and leafy hops with some fruity orange character. Taste carries that through with a slight earthy, nutty sweetness. Seems well joined up. Nothing too exciting but perfectly fine.

Deceptive that its called "Red" but is an amber ale. Definitely wouldnt have ordered it. Pours a transparent amber with a smallish white head. Decent balance, but its lacking ingredients. This tastes like something the Ram would brew intended for those who dont care much for flavor, and are just looking for something quaffable. Slightly metallic needs a much fuller mouthfeel to counter the carbonation. A bit fruity, but not much to it other than a balance of weak hops and caramel malts.
