Bottle (12oz). Shared by garthicus with me and blankboy. Clear bright gold, smallish white head. Tangy, slightly harsh, sweet - apricot? Taste - same, cereal, generic bitterness, slight fake fruit - wtf? Slick, sort of lively, harsh building aftertaste. Not too good.

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.

djd07 (6248) - Houston, Texas, USA - FEB 2, 2008
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.

Braudog (6024) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - MAY 19, 2006
UPDATED: MAR 27, 2007 Rerated 3/25/07 ... Deep golden, maybe an orange tinge. Orange-tinged (yes, I’m repeating myself ... hey, I’ve had a few beers) yeasty aroma. The yeastiness carries ... bit of orange, almost a corriander tinge, interestingly flavorful. Not bad.

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.

riversideAK (5738) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - MAR 24, 2008
Caramel malt aroma with a touch of spicy hops. Pours copper with a thin head. Flavor is slightly sweet caramel malt with a light metallic note. Finishes clean with light citrus.

Strykzone (5621) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - MAY 31, 2007
Copper is a pretty good description of the color of this beer. It has a small and short lived head that leaves a small lacing. Aroma is a very pleasant floral, hop, and malt mixture. Flavor, like the aroma, is a combination of tart hops, sweet malt and honey. Nicely carbonated. Pleasant and refreshing.

TheBeerGod (5595) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - MAY 9, 2009
Sample from a bottle in the VIP tent at WBF Raleigh on 5/2/09. Copper pour. Short tan head.Nose is light malt, hops and caramel. Taste is grassy hops, caramel, sweet malt, and light spicy hops. Chewy, medium bodied beer with light carbonation. Ends with more grassy and spicy hops, faint fruit, caramel, and malt notes.

FROTHINGSLOSH (5591) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 17, 2011
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a vibrant golden-apricot color with a large creamy yellow-white head that lingered and left decent lacing. The aroma was sweetish caramel with vague fruity and citric hops. The flavor was tangy and sweetish with caramel, lemon, orange, nut and bread elements. The finish was medium length tangy citrus, honey and bread. Medium body. Pleasant.

I could go into detail of the various characteristics of this beer. You know - caramel and toffee, mild hop bite, blah blah blah. Simply put, this is a well made beer, but so low key so as to be barely noticeable. Nothing wrong, no challenges.
