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.

3.1 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. =)

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle (12oz). Amber pour, clear, with a good-sized foamy-creamy beige lasting head. Very light aroma - sweet malt, floral, perhaps a little earthy. The taste - eww - plastic and sugar, that’s about it - maybe stale weeds soaked in pond water that’s had a big bag of Pez candies lying at the bottom for a couple of years. Light body, soft and weakly carbonated, finishes quick and leaves a linger of slight stale bitterness (maybe that’s the previous beer intruding on my palate). Pretty bleh or, at best, meh.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
<b>In short: </b>A dirty fluffy fruity beer of some kind (I think I got a bad bottle)
<b>How: </b>Bottle 12oz, consumed a few days after purchase.
<b>The look: </b>Murky dark-orange body topped by a very small beige head.
<b>In long: </b>Ripe fruits, leather and sweat on the nose. Fluffy yeasty body with notes of extra-ripe bananas, juicy ripe citrus, moist, medium sweetnes. This is really not a clean beer, to the contrary. Fortunately the beer is not very tasty so it’s not so bad. I drank the beer just a few days after purchasing it from a little store in Princeton but I had the feeling I was drinking an old tired beer. I hope for Redhook’s sake that I got a bad bottle because the only thing that wasn’t wrong with this bottle was, well, the actual bottle.

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.

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.
