Lightly hopped with some kind of boring malt, itís not bad just boring. Some slightly sweet hints with a touch of tinniness and corn. Seems to have that graininess of many lagers, like a beefed-up pilsner. Just boring.

Nice amber color. Nose of hops. Flavor was more of extra hopped ale than that of an amber. I got more citrus tones than malt. Like someone said before, was more like an ESP than amber.
Earlier Rating: 7/20/2004 Total Score: 3.2
Amber in color with a quick head. Citrus with a touch of yeast nose. Hints of hoppy citrus with light malt balance. Clean finish to it.

Hazy orange appearance. Has a sharp hop tinge in the front with a trace of lemon in the finish. A nice drinkable amber ale.

From the bottle this pours a clear amber with a medium white head. Moderate citrus hop aroma, with a slight metallic note. Taste starts with a very watery palate, light fruity malts followed by a mild hop finish. Not much to this beer, just mild flavors. I remember the tap version tasting much better than this.

Nice amber ale...a little more hop than others Iíve tried. Medium frothy head smells more like a mild american pale ale. Clean, crisp aftertaste...not a bad brew at all.

UPDATED: JAN 13, 2005 (12 oz bottle) Is Redhook trying to hide the fact that they are the brewers of this beer? The only way to tell is to read the fine print on the edge of the label that says Redhook Ale Brewery. Well, if this were my beer, Iíd be trying to hide that fact too. This is a mediocre effort at best. It is dominated by a floral, peachy flavor, and is moderately sweet, but pretty light on maltiness. Sweet, peachy nose reinforces the characteristics of the flavor. Light in body, kind of thin on the palate. Golden in color, and cloudy, with small particles suspended in the beer. Small, whitish head barely maintains a thin rim around the glass, but there are many streaks and irregular patches of lace on the glass. Not a fan.

This is not a very good beer at all. Even at 2.99 rating it is still overrated. No reason I can think of as to why you would want to partake of this. Its almost more offensive than the crappy macros.

IndianaRed (2192) - Boise, Idaho, USA - OCT 3, 2004
Bottle Poures a clear medium amber with a modest off-white head that quickly disolves leaving very little lacing. Aroma is of bread and yeast, and very little hops. Flavor has a little more of the hoppy slant. Otherwise it is somewhat bitter, not pparticularly interesting. Feel is pretty thin and the aftertaste is just slight bitter woody flavor. Nothing special...Gllad Iím thirsty

ClarkVV (3863) - Allston, Massachusetts, USA - SEP 21, 2004
2003 or 2004 bottle. Lovely medium-orange-amber color, with a touch of sediment floating around. Decent white head. Appearance looks great so far. Aroma is citrus hops, grapefruit, orange marmalade and some more fruity spiciness compliments of the hops. Flavor is moderately bitter, but well-balanced (relative to the style of course). Which by the way, how is this an amber ale??? Anyways, itís got a good dry toffee/caramel like malt that dosent get too sweet but holds the bitterness in check. The finish had plenty of orange zest, grapefruit and a hint of bitter pininess. Body is medium, lively carbonation, hint of thinning and very drinkable. Loved it, actually, but then, I havent had a West Coast hopped beer for a while, so maybe I was just missing them. Thanks so much for the beer, Andre.

Hazy amber colour with very little head. Malty aroma with noticable citrus hops and some faint fruitiness. Flavour is both spicy and citrusy. Crisp finish with decent body.
