3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
sixer picked up at azwine. bottle dec72009 consumed 2/20/10.
the aroma doesnít give me much.... it is mostly caramel malt with chocolate, a a little smoke and some toasted nuts tossed in.
the flavor has the same characteristics with maple walnut creme candies, biscuits and a dry hoppy finish which actually tingles the tongue. .
it is easy drinking (and without much thought) with a medium body and high spritzy carbonation. 5/3/6/3/13/3.0

Pours ruby amber with a thick frothy beige head. Aroma of caramel, biscuit, some nut. Taste is a bit dull but has biscuity sweet malt again. Nothing bad but nothing stands out. Medium light body, full soft carbonation.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Nice looking beer here, chesnut brown with a nice looking large frothy/thick tan head.
Ok aromas of caramel and buscuit malts, pleasing.
Taste pretty similar to the aroma, very caramel , semi sweet, slightly toasted. Hardly any hop .
Ok on the palate, on the thin side but this is to style.
Overall a well drinkable and likeable Brown Ale.
Not complex, simple like the style is meant to be.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pour is a ruddy chestnut brown with a bit of an amber ruddy quality with a thin dense and tight bubbled light khaki head...smell is faintly sweet with some toasted almond and faint caramel and molasses note...a bit of peanut husk too...taste is lightly sweet and toasty at first with some stale bread and pecan flavors...then a bit of hoppy bitterness sort of appeared out of nowhere...I didnít pick any of it up in the nose...a grapefruit/citrusy bitterness...the finish is lingeringly sweet with a faint citrus note...fairly thin and watery...

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 12/20
This wasnít the best brown ale Iíve had. It didnít have that flavor I was looking for and itís oalate was poor. Redhook seems to be a hit and miss brewer. This was a miss for me.

2.7 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
No aroma, bit o foam, and crystal clear brown liquid. Decent malty flavor but the beer foams up in my mouth. I think I would like this more if I had a couple. Seems stronger than 5.8%. Accessible.
