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’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.

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 ....

Ernest (6905) - 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!

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.

Bottle. Pours a clear copper color with a medium white head that diminishes quickly. The aroma is a grassy hops and light malt. Decent lacing on the glass. The taste is a sour malt and a metallic finish. Not much going on with this one.

UPDATED: MAR 19, 2004 Bottle pours amber with a medium sized off-white head.   Decent carbonation, good lacing.   Lots of very fine bits floating about, almost appears unfiltered.   Aroma is grain & malts.   Taste is much the same, but with a sweaty sock & ashtray finish.   Definately thin on the palate.   I can see why this is what they offer to BMC drinkers at Redhook.

PorterPounder (6526) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - AUG 18, 2003
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.
