2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottled on 7/18/07. Poured an ugly, cloudy medium orange with very little carbonation and only the faintest dusting of head. My first impression from the aroma was "American wheat ale".. had that sweetened-up-to-make-it-tolerable/intriguing/palat character to it.. some of the sweetness appeared berry-related.. I just didnít dig it. The flavor was a little more agreeable.. lightly-toasted berries and caramel at the core with a mild grassy/herbal hop presence.. more berries on the finish, which made it a bit hard to choke down.. decent mild smoky accents throughout. Lighter-bodied with lower carbonation on the palate.. man.. I just didnít care for this.

Bottle. Pours amber with an off white head. Caramel malt aroma with a hint of citrusy hops. The flavor is sweet caramel and toast, with a hint of hoppy bitterness. Not bad.

I believe I had this on tap at an Old Chicago. Light flavor with a hint of sweet maltiness and a definite metallic tinge. Unimpressed.

You see a lot, Doctor. But are you strong enough to point that high-powered perception at yourself? What about it? Why donít you - why donít you look at yourself and write down what you see? Or maybe youíre afraid to.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Head is initially small, frothy, off-white to light brown, mostly diminishing.
Body is medium to dark amber.
Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (cookie, caramel, grain), lightly hoppy (flowers, apricot), with a light note of peach.
Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter.
Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter, slightly unclean.
Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation.
Reasonably pleasant (if simple) aroma, but marred by a somewhat dirty aftertaste (much as with Sam Adams beers). Ehh.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle (12oz). Pours a clear orange-amber with an average size diminishing fizzy off-white head. Mild aroma of caramel malt, fruit, toasted grain, some earthiness and sweetness -- it’s all very mild and subtle though. Mild, slightly watery flavour of caramel malt, toasted grain, sweet fruit, a bit of spices and a very light bitter finish. Some light, sweet candy-like flavour mixed in there too -- not unpleasant, just a little odd. Average bodied. It’s alright, it’s not bad but it’s nothing special, just a decent Amber-like beer.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle: Amber, hues of dark/burnt orange, moderate light beige head that leaves behind very nice lacing, but not much in the way of carbonation.   Nose of grains and oddly enough, canvas.   Malty start, slight astringency or metal immediately after, though not too strong, with a slightly nutty finsih.   Body and mouthfeel are fairly average... this is Redhook ya know.   I will say it does have a rather smooth and somewhat cleaner finish.   Gets a bit better as it warms up.   Thanks Clark for the chance at trying a Redhook that is not brewed down the street from me in Woodinville.   Everyone will wonder where the hell I got this beer. =)
