3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Amber color. The head started out nice then almost disappeared. Light body but nice cloudy/clear balance. Not much smell till after you have a drink. Then the aroma fills the nasal cavities. Not bad. Redhook makes a better Nut Brown ale.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz bottle. Pours a nice hazy mahogany color. Aroma is floral hops up front with faint toasted caramel notes. Flavor is well-balanced between bitter hops and malt backside. Palate is a bit thin, but it makes it very drinkable. Overall a decent, drinkable beer. Surprised it’s a seasonal, actually.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Nitro draft pour featured at the brewery. Swirling amber color pour with the huge creamy head and lace. Aroma has light hops, and rich malt. Rich caramel malt flavor with a toasty finish. Interested in trying this on regular draft, but this nitro is very nice. Creamy, cinnamon like, spice finish. Nicely done.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Pours a mostly clear dark amber color with a smallish off-white head on there that disappears quickly. Nose is pretty nutty with hints of toast to it. Taste is a little sweet and bready, with quite a bit of nuttiness coming through. OK, but just seems a bit off for me.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12oz bottle poured into an Affligem wide mouth goblet. Beer Date: " Exp: 05.14.15. This just came out recently, so maybe 4 month best by date. So, lets see we have 4 ratings in 2011, 4 in 2012, 1 n 2013, 0 in 2014... well the rating scene in Seattle is growing old. Brown colored beer, not much head. Aroma smells of industrial plastic, metallic, and bug spray. Flavor is similar. Maybe I understand why no one is rating this beer. Its close to being macro level, un-nuanced, industrial flavored waste of fermented malted beverage. Low, even for Hale’s.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sample at the brewpub. Deep amber color with a medium off-white head that dissipates steadily. Partial rings of lacing. Aroma of roasted malt and nuts. Light-bodied with a roasty character and flavors of sweet malt, nuts and fruit. The finish is sweet with a short nutty aftertaste. Slightly above average overall.

Pleasant nuttiness, not too sweet, A LOT of diacetyl. Very round. Had it more body, would be a great beer.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz. Pours an opaque dark brown with clearer dark brown edges. Virtually no head, lace, or legs. Big roasty nose with a toasty nutshell note. Creamy medium body with decently lively carb. Roast, black bread, and nuts on the mid palate. Certainly appealing enough, just not really complex enough to be very interesting.
