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.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours amber with a thin off white head. Smells earthy, some caramel, light fruity hints, some citrus. Tastes toasty and full bodied with a light resiny finish.

Bottle. I was a little disapointed with this brew. I’m not a huge fan of Ambers, but when they’re done right, I love them. This one was just a little too toasted malty for me, with not enough hop balance in my mind. Bittersweet finish, not as refreshing as I would have liked.

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.

UPDATED: OCT 22, 2006 Copper-orange with but a thin head. Interesting hop-floral nose. Caramel malt rules the roost with a bit of apple bitterness following. I’d drink this again.

Nothing but hops in the aroma but first taste shows some nice malts. Was my bottle flat? There was absolutely no head and just a hint of lacing. Some caramel and dark fruit are present and just a bit of grapefruit. Late in the glass the hops take over and the malts fade. Mouthfeel is thin and there is a slight tart and bitter aftertaste but the beer is very clean tasting.

Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a copper color with a huge foamy orange head that lingered and left good lacing. The aroma was sweet toasted caramel but was a bit vegetal. The flavor was sweet toasted caramel, fig, honey and nut. The finish was medium length tangy caramel and nut. Medium body. Ok.

Draft at County Grill in Yorktown VA. Had no idea this was new. Came out amber with a small bit of froth on top. Being as this is draft, that’s all the head I expected. Nose was rather nice, surprisingly enough. Light toffee, earthy hops, and moderate maltiness. Taste is lightly hopped and semi-sweet. Hints of toffee, sweet malts, hops, light spice and light nuttiness. Body is rather light, but very drinkable. Finishes with more of a hop splash, light toffee and sweet malts. Not too bad, but nothing over the top.
