Draft at the Woodinville brewpub. Crystal clear toffeeish amber with scant gray head. Musty, sweaty, bready nose. Medium body, very little carb. Mild. Roasty, toasty brown bread on the mid-palate, and sour in an almost rye-like way. Are they using a central keg line back there or something? Not much finish. Company says it "tastes like watered-down whiskey."

blipp (6125) - Newark, New Jersey, USA - DEC 15, 2008
Bottle. Pours red amber with an off white head. Floral hop aroma with some sweet caramel malt. The flavor is well balanced, for floral hops, a bit lighter than the aroma, and sweet caramel. Not bad.

HogTownHarry (6108) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - JAN 2, 2006
Bottle (12oz). Poured deep clear copper with a small white skim head. Aroma of crushed spruce boughs - it’s almost all spruce resin hops, only the faintest hint of light roast malt; says "winter" to me. Taste is a nice blend of tea/orange peel hops, light malt - juicy faint woody malt, a nice evergreen crispness to it, some caramel and yeast as it warmed. Mouthfeel is astringent and lightly acidic, lightly carbonated - quite nice, not spectacular, but a nice session ale for this time of year.

blankboy (6090) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 18, 2008
Bottle. Pours a very bubbly, slightly hazy orange-amber with an average size lasting off-white head -- lookin’ good. Aroma of lightly toasted malt, fruit and a decent amount of hops. Flavour of toasted malt, fruit, hops along with some nuts and light spices -- it could use a bit more flavour. Mild bitter finish. Average bodied. Better then I expected it to be, not bad at all actually.

Had this on tap at an Old Chicago and it just was not good... not good at all. Maybe it was the place.

douglas88 (6053) - Portland, Oregon, USA - DEC 16, 2013
Bottle from the grocery store. Pours a clear mahogany color with a medium beige head. The aroma is light spices, some caramel and toasted malts. Smooth, actually quite hoppy, some pine, toasted malts, nutty, citrus, some caramel. Quite nice really. And a good price. Really smooth and fairly light. Well made.

The last of a sixer, but the first time drinking it while a member of RateBeer. I truly enjoy this beer. Balanced, complex yet no part of it is aggressive. It's hoppy, spicy, and earthy nature makes it a great nightcap to an evening of good beer, good food, and good friends. Still when I see the Redhook label, it first thing to come to mind is A-B.

swoopjones (5927) - Buffalo, New York, USA - DEC 19, 2007
On tap @ Coles Buffalo NY. Nothing real special here but nothing really bad either. Nice easy drinking winter warmer. Darker amber color, some light spiciness & roastiness. medium body. Rather smooth & unobtrusive beer. Nice winter session beer.

Light tan colour .. some decant head but dies down quite a bit .. some honey notes but muddled ... some flavours but too befuddling to pull out anything real, if that makes any sense.. an average beer but for an english strong winter beer, thin and watery but is easy drinking... McLovin ..
