Bockyhorsey (2609) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - APR 6, 2006
Bottle. Aroma of a burnt corn, malted grains. Darker orange body with small head the disipates. Flavor is nothing out of the ordinary than common swill, bitter slight malt burnt corn and medium bitterness. Just an odd flavor combination in this beer to keep a person inteerested in it.

luckygirl (1223) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - APR 4, 2006
My initial impression upon first waft isn’t a good one. Beer pours a vivid, clear, light orange color with a small, white, frothy, mostly and quickly diminishing head. The aroma is malty with a light note of toasted grain; hoppy with a trace note of resin/pine; yeasty with fairly unsettling moderately weighty notes of cheddar cheese and a trace note of tangy dirty diaper. The flavor is a flatline: lightly bitter, lightly sweet with an average-length, trace sweet, husky finish. The body is light, the texture is watery and the carbonation is average.

Ernest (6031) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - APR 4, 2006
Head is initially small, fizzy, white, mostly diminishing. Body is clear light amber. Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain), trace hops (flowers), with a hint of dirty feet. Flavor is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly to moderately bitter, husky. Light to medium body, watery texture, lively/fizzy carbonation. Damn, talk about having to concentrate to find any aroma. Just about nuthin’. Similarly BLAND in the mouth. Hwarrff!

thoreaubred (42) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAR 26, 2006
This is the worst "amber ale" I’ve tried so far. Soapy and metallic and entirely uninteresting. I’m going to give Redhook one more chance after trying this and Blackhook (which I liked better than this.)

luvcasks (178) - USA - MAR 22, 2006
Aroma: Vaguely malty with some citrusy hopy notes Appearance: Hazy Reddish copper with a thin white head Flavor: NIcely balanced with malt forward with very slight what I think is belgian-esque sournes Palate: Light bodied with a short finish Overall: The bottled version did not leave me thrilled but had enough intrigue to make me want to try one on tap

elnadeau (786) - Laguna Niguel, California, USA - MAR 13, 2006
Bottle. Gold-orange with a bit of haze, decent sized white head. Aroma is bready fruit with some hops. Moderate malt presence, nicely balanced with some citrus hops, good mouthfeel though light, finishes with some spicy bitterness. Not remarkable but I wouldn’t turn one down.

ElGaucho (2156) - Minnetonka, Minnesota, USA - MAR 11, 2006
Draught at Hole in the Wall, Pointe Hilton Squaw Peak Phoenix. I was pretty excited to come across a Redhook brew I hadn’t tried, or heard of, before. And judging from the low number of ratings, either it is new or its distribution is limited. Some sweetness in the nose. Copper in color (imagine that), no head. Slightly hazy body. Nice flavor; well balanced. Some bitterness. I enjoyed it and wouldn’t mind having it again. It would appear that there’s a macro bias underrating this brew.

BeerandBlues2 (9081) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - MAR 9, 2006
Bottle. Pours amber, orange with a patchy white head. Aroma is malt (grain, meal, cereal), yeast (sweat, horse blanket) and slight fruit notes (apple, peach). Medium bitterness and acidity, low to no sweetness, metal and grainy malt flavor, fading grain and meal flavor. Light bodied and slightly fizzy palate.

jake65 (2532) - Williston, North Dakota, USA - MAR 8, 2006
Somewhat dissapointing. The flavor starts off well with hints of citrus, maltiness, and little hoppiness. There really was no finish to this brew. The taste disapears quickly. Weak taste for an amber ale.

Gusler (2653) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - MAR 5, 2006
The beer after its disemboguing the 12-ounce brown bottle sets in the glass a slightly cloudy amber with a decent light tan head that is semi-creamy in texture, the lace formed after head depletion forms a tight concealing sheet upon the glass. Nose is fresh & crisp, with a nice malt sweetness; start is lightly sweet with a fair to middling grain presence and the top light. Finish has a benign acidity with the hops light but detectable, a very dry somewhat soapy aftertaste linger long, drinkable but nothing more.
