HogTownHarry (6199) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - JUN 18, 2009
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: 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.

PorterPounder (5881) - 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.

riversideAK (5727) - 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.

Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - APR 10, 2009
Bottle. Pours an amber body with a white head. Nutty aromas, cereal notes, crackers and some caramel. Lightly bitter with some apples and earthy bitterness. Not so good.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - JUN 26, 2003
<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.

TheBeerGod (5441) - 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.

Suttree (5355) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 11, 2007
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.

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.

Medium gold color. Mildly hopped with medium malts. Light tasting and refreshing ale. Good flavor, nice balance. Full mouthfeel. Finish is clean. Aftertaste is slightly bitter. Nice beer.
