Pours a clear red, nice white head with some lacing. Aroma is mild but sweet and malty. Flavor much the same. Meh.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a clear soft brown. The slightly off cream head does not last long. The carbonation stays soft through out. Caramel in the nose with a hint of cocco. Medium sweetness coats the tongue with a slightly sticky sensation. This reminds me of Peteís Wicked Ale back in the late 80ís-early 90ís; a balanced American Brown Ale.

0.5 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
I am sitting here wondering how out of all the redhook beers that are widely distributed, how this one got one of the highest scores. In all honesty, it tastes like if you took a dirty dishrag, dunked it in dirt water, and then squeeze that out into a glass and poured a cheap half shot of well voldka in it. YUCK. for $15.00 I should have known better.

Bottle at Dayton Ale feast. I thought this was a nice brown ale that separated itself from the pack of lesser browns. A little tastier roasted malts and hop balance compared to others. nice.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Wet copper, tan head. Nose is caramel, nuts (walnut and pecan?)
Taste is nutty, woody, very smooth...moderate sweetness....a very pleasant beer....another one that would be good with an after dinner dessert.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Light-flavored, non-offensive and sessionable, but not the most exciting brown ale. Granted, the brown ale is not the most exciting style, but still. Light to medium body. Light malt flavors of toast, nuts, grist and wort. Barely discernible hops, though it does finish somewhat dry from its slight bitterness, and itís balanced. Bit of an alcohol warmth in the aftertaste. Overall, itís well made with no off-flavors (other than some wortiness, but most arenít bothered by that), but like I mentioned before, itís not very exciting. Perhaps that was the intention, though. Regardless, this would make for a good cooking beer.

22 oz bomber from Bi-Mart for $1.99. Pours a dark amber with a creamy head. Not much nose. Malt hits you first. No bitterness. No sourness. Very mild nut brown beer. However it is drinkable. A good everyday beer for the retail price.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a clear, light, red-brown with a thin ring of white foam. Aroma is toasted, grain, nuts, a hint of chocolate, planty hops and some grassy hops. Flavor is toasted nuts, cereal grain, a touch of roast, light chocolate, spicy, floral and sweet grass hops. Palate is light bodied, dry and slightly creamy on entry, off dry and a little chalky on the finish with a moderate strength, but sharp and blanketing carbonation. Didnít really wow me, but itís not bad as far as brown ales go.

On tap @ Humpyís. Clear amber/brown with a white head. Aroma is biscuit dough, nuts and some light chocolate. Flavor is rich and malty with just a light hop bitterness. Medium body with average carbonation and a clean, malty finish. This is a great nut brown, nothing wrong with this.
