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.

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.

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.

pinkzambia (1802) - Boise, Idaho, USA - MAR 2, 2006
Bottle: This is NOT an amber ale! I wish it was put in the right category. Anyway, it is a cloudy gold color with fine sediment floating around with a small, white bubbly head and sticky lacing. The aromas are sweet and the flavors are soapy sweet and wheat notes. YUCK.

12 oz bottle extracted from a six-pack at Vons. Pours hazy amber with a slight coppery cast and a thin off-white head that diminished mostly leaving a bit of spotty lace. Aroma of light caramel malts, along with some citrus notes and floral hoppiness. Flavor is quite sweet, again with caramel malts, lemon, orange and a crisp hop bite that fades to a slightly unpleasant bitter-astringent woodchip finish. Light to medium body and assertive carbonation. This one is as I might expect from Redhook, middlin’ at best. Sadly, my opinion of Redhook has dropped considerably from the mid-eighties in Seattle when they were on the cutting edge of microbrewing and helped to launch the brewing revolution in the Northwest. :-(

12oz. bottle. Slightly hazy orange amber with a small rocky white head. Caramel, fruity sweetness, and metallic hops in the aroma. Malty sweetness, artificial fruit twang flavors. Herbal and citric hop components dominate the later flavor and last into the finish. Mouthfeel is medium light.

Tastes like a lot of fake flavors, surprised I was to see sediment on the bottom of this bottle, I assume it to be pieces of canned yeast waste but cannot be certain, malty flavor with somethin a little citrusy goin on, watery but I assumed that going into it, not bad but not good

UPDATED: MAY 1, 2006 I’ve had this as both the Chinook Copper and the new Redhook Copper Hook. Seems to have a little better aroma and flavor as the Redhook. Pours a nice bright amber color. Aromas of malts,something metallic, and a touch of grapefruit. Flavor is a tad citrus mixed well with the malt, nice finish, but a little watery. Redhook CopperHook: Pours a nice bright amber color. Aromas of grapefruit/pine with some roasty scents. Flavor is citrus mixed well with the sweet malt, nice hoppy taste on this one.

on draft bellvue, WA...some weird offshoot of redhook. crisp nose of frank essence with small amt of citrus. mouth pushes a bitter backbone from the aftertaste of the beer. crisp yet biting. reminds me of anchor steam.

maltdog (621) - Colorado, USA - JUL 11, 2005
Purchased fresh at the brewery in WA, sampled barely chilled in a tulip glass. Yeast-cloudy copper/orange... somewhere between polished bronze and cantaloupe flesh... with a small ecru head. Bright aromas of spicy licorice, caramel, menthol, and nutmeg. Flavors are complex and fascinating; rye and breadcrust, peppery spice, honey, yeast, walnut, juniper, and a hint of bubblegum. Medium bodied, tingly on the tongue, kind of coats the mouth like static cling. Mildy bitter, cedary aftertaste. All elements blend seamlessly. I think the "amber ale" classification is misleading- I consider it more of a hybrid or "specialty" style. Refreshing, tasty, and unusually spicy; rivals a top-notch Belgian ale. Wow!
