purchased at central market in poulsbo, washington.
pour is clear copper-red with a thin beige head that within 30 seconds is gone, no lacing.
smell is of grass, roasted malt, touch of nuts, small scent of bread dough.
taste is weak, watery, some malt, bit sour, some fruit, wood.
overall not impressed, i would agree with Oakes in that it is a bit like a ch-ch-cherry cola. Alphadelic (2249) - Portland, Oregon, USA - APR 1, 2017
I think my 6-pack is somewhat oxidized but this beer is also stupid sweet. Very caramelly with some cherry and other indiscernible fruit flavors. Not really my cup of tea at all. jjgmd (2220) - Coral Springs, Florida, USA - JAN 13, 2014
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 bitbucket (2165) - Kirkland, Washington, USA - FEB 15, 2008
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 they’re positioning this as a gateway brew, not too assertive, but with a enough flavor to draw you in. Prufrockstar (2132) - Moscow, Idaho, 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 it’s 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

This was a pretty nice red ale that had a good malt and finish. Poured a light red color with alot of nice head. 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! Luvystypotables (2039) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - JUN 2, 2015
Subdued aroma of malt, reddish brown minimal head and carbonation. Subdued taste of malt, sweet, medium body with a malt finish slightly bitter. Nocturne (1992) - 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. zgaier (1962) - 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 wasn’t a fan
