UPDATED: FEB 24, 2007 Rerate Nice copper pour with a soft silky head. Pleasant lemony aroma with hints of spice. Flavor has the same faint citrusy notes with some mild spiciness. Refreshing and a good beer to cook on the grill by. Original 3.2 Had on tap at the Copper Sky Grill in Seattle - did not realize it was a Redhook product until I saw in the grocery store the next day. Has a bit of a honey aroma to it - very pleasing. Dark golden appearance - not copper at all. Not much of a head or lacing. Smooth flavor with some sweet honey notes on the way down. Very smooth drinking - good compliment to the Cheeseburger I had.

A slightly golden amber hue in the pour, with a very short lived foamy head. Slightly hoppy with a doughy, somewhat fruity but could not narrow down the exact fruit hints. Semi-sweet in the finish.

<font size=+1>Drinking Conditions: Pint glass, tasted with and without the yeast, 40°F Tasting temp</font><hr> Poured a dark orange, almost amber with very slight haze to it. It is unfiltered, so once the yeast is poured in it becomes very hazy. Small white head, average lacing. Aroma slightly hoppy with a yeast background with notes of honey, apricot and citrus. Flavor is mild with an absence of any floral hops. They used enough bittering hops, it is very dry and bitter on the palate, but the hop flavor doesn't come out. A little dry hopping would go a long way on this one. I prefer this without the yeast as it adds to the already bready taste and hides more of the hops. The yeast does add a more homebrewed taste to it though.

Golden with a white head. Floral aroma (apricot, ice tea, a little sour). Light bitter finish. Somewhat refreshing.

BillKismet (3335) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAY 15, 2003
Lambent orange soft foam head with profuse bubbles. Sanitized, stank hops with a brush of apricot skin in the nose. Light flavor, reflective of the aroma, but with a slightly sour finish
Earlier Rating: 1/21/2002 Total Score: 3
This scotch colored amber left a diffuse tingly hop presence in the mouth, but otherwise was rather dull and flat. Not bad, but not quite good either--just unimpressive.

jsquire (3436) - St. Marys, Ohio, USA - MAR 2, 2003
On tap at the 2003 Great Alaska Beer and Barley Wine Festival. Yellow beer with thin white head and very little aroma. Sort of acidic malty sweetness, but no real distinction. Not an interesting beer, but not really bad either.

GermanBrews76 (678) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - JAN 20, 2003
Brilliant amber body with a golden hue to it. a tight head as well. looks good. Really hoppy. lots of clean, bitter hops. fairly astringent, almost like a sprite. I dont care too much for it. Pretty acidic as well.

KingPinHead (390) - Des Moines, Washington, USA - NOV 12, 2002
On draught: Very light aroma of sweet malt and hops...Color a bronze/copper with wispy light head---no lace to speak of...Flavor is similarly two-pronged between the sweet malt floor and the lightly hopped top...Carbonation very light, which adds softness to its mouthfeel but accentuates the lack of hop assertiveness. The overall feel of this brew is a bit thin. Actually, I like the sweet base, but this needs considerably more hop presence to inspire repeat samplings.

Murphy (1759) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - NOV 3, 2002
This was weak compared to every other beer Redhook makes, yet for some reason this one gets the special label. What gives? A beer that is easy to drink, but just didn’t do much for me.
