1.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Aroma is malty with a bit of citrus. Appearance is copper, hazy, small tan head. Taste is malt forward, then grainy, then a bit of bitterness and alcohol hotness. Maybe some banana. Palate is medium. Bitterness and malt that dont go well together linger. Overall I do not like this beer. Goes from cloying, to off bitterness. Its is almost not drinkable IMO.

Flavor is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly bitter.
Finish is lightly sweet, lightly to moderately bitter, husky.

Damn, talk about having to concentrate to find any aroma. Just about nuthin’. Similarly BLAND in the mouth. Hwarrff!

On tap at Bocktown-This was awful. No taste to speak of. Literally none. There was a faint malt taste but it was covered up by the seltzer water texture/taste. No aroma either. Blah.

Floral malt aromas. Skunky mouldy flavour. Some metallic aftertaste, sadly.

BAD beer. Pours a copper color, surprise! that provides no allure. Tiny fizzy head that dissapears instatly. Smells like MOVIE THEATER STALE VOMIT. Tastes like metal, bread, and water. A beer that was made useful by being used to lubricate my garbage disposal. Thanks redhook!

1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Poured a real light tan color rather than the coppery amber I was expecting. White head that didn’t stick around long. Nothing stuck out to the nose and the taste didn’t do anything for me either. Redhook should be trying to sell this as a light beer. It is not at all what I was expecting, and coming from Redhook I am very disappointed in this beer. I will probably give it another try to make sure that it was that light and non flavorful, but you know what thy say about first impressions.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
Draught at Elk Public House, Spokane, WA. Clear amber, no head. Slight cardboardy caramel aroma. Mid sweet, clean hard mouthfeel. A bit of syrup before a finish with low bitterness. Dull and lifeless without purpose or direction.

355mL. Pours clear amber. Medium off white soapy head. Soapy retention. Nose is sweet cherry and spices. Dog food comes through. Taste is soapy and very bland, tangy, lemon heavy, detergent. Palate is chemical heavy. Worse than the pilsner.
