3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Rated on 11-29-2009 (Bottle) This beer forms a medium sized fizzy beige head that mostly diminishes, transparent red with brown tint body, fast rising carbonation, and one ring of lacing. The Aroma is caramel malt, citrus and pine hops. The Taste is lightly bitter, caramel malt, and citrus hops. This is a medium bodied beer. Overall, this is a session beer as it is very easy to drink, has a nice hop presence as it is not overly hoppy tasting which suits me just fine!

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Btl pours a beautiful clear brown color, creamy off white head that leaves great lacing but dissipates quickly. Smells of light roasted malt,toffee and floral hops and a hint of chocolate. Tastes of malt,chocolate, a tad bit of toasted bread and hops.Light to medium body, creamy texture, soft carbonation, dry,bitter finish. Good beer, nice malty taste with a crisp and clean hop flavor. Decent winter offering from redhook.

Draft->mini lager at RFD. Reddish brown with small offwhite head. Toasted malt with a little hops and spices. Very plain and unexciting. Eh.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A very pretty beer that’s medium brown but looks quite red under light, topped with a solid light tan head. Fresh roasted malt aroma. Tastes like a freshly brewed brown ale with a good malt background. There’s some good earthy, pine hops to balance the sweetness. Leaves a good malty taste behind. Good winter warmer.

Okay beer. Pours a nice bronze amber color. Not much of an aroma here and a rather bland taste. It leaves a lot to be desired

Bottle. Good piney hop and very light dark fruit nose. Cola color, thin tan head. Thin watered-down roast malt initial / some hoppiness emerges / all fades out quickly. Medium body, a bit rough on the tongue. Not much really "winter" about it.

Dark brown, reddish body with small white head. Aroma has mostly malts and some sweet syrup/sugar notes. Mouthfeel is light, somewhat watery with little carbonation. Taste is soft with nice bitterness. It’s a pretty good ale and I can see this working outside winter as well.

Bottle. Pours dark brown, thin brown head. Aroma not impressive, but flavor is actually not too shabby. Malty and toasty. Rich and some very mild spices, but nothing too overbearing. Nice bitter finish.
