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.

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...

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.

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.

A copper body with a foam head. The smell is mostley hopps. The taste is smoother then the smell with mild citrus and hints of malt. Good carbonation.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Deep clear copper, creamy dense pale tan head. Dry leafy aroma, some mild caramel. Light caramel, some copper metal, little sour zing that at this point actually adds to the overall -meh-.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle: Bright and transparent dark caramel color with two fingers of creamy khaki head. Aroma is roasty, earthy, and nutty. Gives the impression of a dry roastiness. Tastes nutty and earthy with some toffee. The roasted malt isnít as prominent as expected. Retains a nice toffee and caramel sweetness before the nuts and earthy bits in the tail. Nice little session ale.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Could not be more pedestrian if it sprouted legs and picked up a a walking cane. Slightly toasted nutty malt body with some root character and earthyness. Screams "hey everybody! lets all play solitaire in the corner by ourselves! maybe that will be less boring than drinking a dozen of meís!" Meh-Squared.
