2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
The more than light malty aroma one expects from an amber. Light copper color. Frothy off-white head. It tries to lace. Medium bodied. Lots of carbonation, though not enough to bite. Hard to taste anything until the carbonation leaves. Then it is a mild malty sweetness. Not a great deal of hop at any point. The amber that remembers to be an amber rather than a pale ale or IPA or even an ESB. For the price this is excellent value.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle: Pellucid amber, light head and nice lacing. Nose of light malt, not much else, maybe some caramel. The flavor is a bit marshmallowy with subtle caramel again. Subtle, more for the little flavor group.

Dark golden to amber color with a foamy white head. Somewhat earthy malt aromas and dry herbal hops are evident only slightly in the background. Mild floor malt and caramel start. Middle has a light fruit and dry floral bitterness. A English and PNW twist to this one.

Taster - Hop Scotch Spring Beer Festival – Seattle WA
Amber in color this had a nice head. This was a deep malt brew with very little hops. Nice flavors but not my style it was more of a Bitter than a Amber. This is a good try at this market. But not the best brew I have had. Better than other Henries. Too bad they do not even brew there own beer anymore. Bring back Henries

Bottle Pours out a crisp cleam amber topped with a off white head. Aroma of malt and light hops. Tast more of the malt a little wood and a touch of hops on the end. Just so so.

12 oz bottle picked up during vacation to Oregon. Copper color with a decent head. Aromas of sweet caramel. some citrus fruit too. Flavors more malty flavors with mostly sweet coming through. Light hop finish and an aftertaste of bight fruit. Not bad.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Nice packageing, and at $6.99 a six, way more exspensive than regular "Henry’s".
Plain copper coloured ale with a good sized frothy,thick light tan head.
Pleasant very malty aroma, slightly spicy .
Flavour is mainlly malty in a light caramel sort of way, with a pleasing light hop bitterness in the end, slightly grainy. Simple.
Mouthfeel is OK, its lowly carbonated and goes down smooth, some nice after taste.
Over all a very simple beer and nothing really to rave over. Probably not worth the extra $1.50 for a Henry weinhard product.
NOTES: as it went on it began to take on some English bitter characteristics,
