Bottle from Total Wine. Pours cloudy amber with a decent off-white head and a toffee aroma. There is a bitter caramel malt flavor that is a bit syrupy and a dry finish.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
I’m liking these unique Redhook 12oz bottles. It pours out clear copper with gold hues and thin off white head. The mild aroma emits some sweet malts that border on being sweet date like as well as a bit of biscuit, a bit of floral hops and a sense of minerals. The taste is sweet with malts and then gets a bit sweet with apple and prune like fruity esters. Between these notes is a floral hop and lager yeast like quality (yes, ale with a lager like aspect) with a wafer thin biscuit malt like sensation. Easy drinkin’ but is a tad on the sweet side for my taste . . . just a tad.

Bottle@ukulele freakout BBQ, the jungle, Kaua’i, 21/08/12. Er, copper with a well behaved several-finger bloom of foam. Soapy cherry, sweet hay aroma. Pretty flavourless with hints of nothing, old rusty metal, marzipan, stale boiled sweets. A dull beer to accompany a pretty exotic experience.

i am an idiot .... Pours a dark orange colour ... hearty lacing ... nice smell, wheat and some citrus ... average no frills taste, some nice sweetness, but doesn’t really have a defining high point ... will do the job and it is quite drinkable but probably not again ....

Bottle (12oz) shared with HogTownHarry & garthicus -- c/o garthicus. Pours a clear oily looking golden-orange with a small quickly diminishing white head. Mild aroma of grain, sweet malt and very light hops. Watery flavour of grain, corn, bread, artificial fruit and a light bitter finish -- not liking it. Average bodied. Mediocre at best.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

Non-offensive to an almost offensive degree. The beer pours a nice color, but it is almost like you’re drinking nothing. Not like drinking water, but like beer that is completely neutral.
