2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A dingy copper color with a lingering head. Malty aroma with a mild roast carries to the palate with good carbonation. A nice hop bittering takes place. Not bad. It has a very commercial sense about it.

2009 Bottle - Here is why I generally hate Redhook...this is a Spring ale that I just bought today that was bottled December 7 2009...itís January 22, 2010...and this is a Spring ale, Spring doesnít start until March...seriously, what the fuck, this is a new style that replaced the last Spring seasonal, and it was launched in fucking December? Whatever, apparently the marketing geniuses at Red Hook know what theyíre doing so no more bitching...Pours out thin and clear, rudddy brown with a small beige head...aroma is malty and grassy, rough grain with a little bit of roast beef...flavour is tame enough, cereal grain, grass, toffee and some more roast...the beer isnít terrible, itís drinkable and not poorly thrown together, but if I stayed up trying to make sense of this release, Iíd go cross-eyed...

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JAN 16, 2010 Bottle. Pours a translucent brown with light red hues and foamy beige head. Aroma of light toasted grain, light chocolate, a little nutty. Flavor has a nice malty toastiness o it and a bit nutty, nicely balanced hop bitter. Mouth feel is light-medium body with high carbonation. Overall, I thought it was pretty tasty!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a dark amber with medium head. Very drinkable, medium bodied brown ale with light roast, a little chocolate and nuts, and an assertive balancing bitterness. Not going to blow you away with flavor, but itís not meant to. Just a nice session brown and Iíd have no problem throwing a few back. Cheers to Red Hook for this one.

3.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz. bottle- Pours amber brown with average head and lacing, the aroma is the same, no distinguishing qualities but not bad either. The flavor is possibly the best Redhook beer Iíve had, but thatís not saying much. This has a mellow nutty smoothness that I could drink all night, good job Redhook.

On tap. Poured a reddish brown with a milky tan head. Aroma of fruit, nuts, caramel and bread. Flavor was surprisingly solid. Rich caramel and cocoa notes, with nuts and fruit. Sweet. Nice beer.
