COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Amber Ales are mostly an American invention. And with its beautiful copper color and subtle hop aroma, our Redwood Flats Amber is our traditional take on a modern American classic. Featuring a unique blend of American hops and malts, Redwood Flats Amber is bold and assertive, with a strongly hoppy flavor that’s easy to drink and even easier to love.

Ernest (6352) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAY 20, 2003
Head is initially average sized, frothy, off-white, mostly diminishing. Body is clear dark amber. Aroma is lightly malty (caramel, toasted bread), lightly hoppy (flowers). Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter, very unclean. Light to medium body, watery texture, fizzy carbonation, metallic. And here I thought, starting with the Dark, that they actually make drinkable beers. Arrgh, the aftertaste! I just ate a cockroach! A cockroach caked with metal filings and under-refrigerator lint! So bad it almost triggered the gag reflex. Shame on them for giving this a tolerable aroma. It's high time I finally made out a will, if I'm to continue reviewing beers of this nature.

Aubrey (3452) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - MAR 5, 2003
Clear with a nice ruby glow; decently frothy head, lasting with some lace patterns. Mouthfeel is somewhat creamy up front, becomes watery. Decent amount of roast and toast. Bit of a hop zing follows behind closely. Bitterness seems to build in the aftertaste. Some fruity notes (raspberry & cherry). Not too bad, but not too great either.

This rating came from the mystery rating sheet I made from the Summer of '01. Not a bad amber, but I preferred Mac and Jacks when I was in Seattle.

i thought this one had the best of all the weinhards family of beers but compared to the world over for this type of beer it still would rank low

KingPinHead (390) - Des Moines, Washington, USA - OCT 19, 2002
Aroma lightly malty with light but sharp hop accents and a slight tang. Color is a pretty reddish amber---head is average but dissipates rapidly...Flavor is decidedly two-tiered: a sweet malt bottom (which alone is unusual for a macrobrew) and a well-measured but sharply bittered hop ceiling---slight tang accompanies all through the finish...Carbonation is moderate and adds to the bite. Body is quite decent...Overall, this is perhaps the best brew in the Henry’s line-up; it has a distinct malt contribution, some layering of flavors, and decent body...Add the attractive price and this becomes something to keep on hand.

The best of the Weinhard beers -- sweet, refreshing, with a decent body.

greystreet80 (191) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAY 21, 2002
A robust red ale, with a beautiful color. This is Henry’s redemption for the horrible blue boar pale ale.

jpfrog (130) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - APR 17, 2002
This is one of my least favorite amber ales. It is too sweet and doesn’t have the right appearance for me. Not hoppy enough. Good beer if you don’t have much money though.
