jredmond (6284) - Manhattan, New York, USA - MAR 20, 2008
12 oz bottle. Tried this beer right after sampling Troegs Nugget Nectar - which was pretty hoppy. This was a nice contrast. Poured an amber orange red body. Very minimal aroma. The taste was pretty good, nice and smooth. Maybe some roasty notes towards the finish.

HogTownHarry (6201) - 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.

PorterPounder (6197) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - DEC 31, 2002
UPDATED: DEC 15, 2007 Rerate Pick up a bit of a nectarine-like fruitiness in the flavor this time around. Enjoyable - same score. Original 3.4 Slightly malty aroma, thin, quickly dissipating head with a wee bit of lacing. Nice amber color. Nothing really memorable about the flavor - kind of dry with a bit of a bitter aftertaste little bit of a hoppiness to it - it’s from the west coast ain’t it?. Beats the Bud Light that they will be serving at the New Years Eve party I am going to.

djd07 (6034) - Houston, Texas, USA - DEC 18, 2007
Bottle. Pours a dark amber coor with a medium off white head that diminishes quickly. The aroma is a light malt with caramel and light hops. Good lacing on the glass. The taste is a sweet hop with a clean dry finish. A good english strong ale from Redhook.

Dark brown with a whipped tan top. There's a thin consistency. It's a tad bitter and nutty with a metallic citric finish.

riversideAK (5738) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - DEC 5, 2007
Dark copper color. Aroma is sweet fruity malt. The flavor is dried fruit with a light citrus finish. Medium bodied. Not really very "strong". Average.

Pailhead (5633) - Plymouth, Michigan, USA - NOV 10, 2005
Bottle: Aroma is very roasty, nutty, and lightly floral. Pours a transparent garnet with a small off-white head. Flavor is very roasty and nutty up front with the slightest hints of chocolate in the background. Finishes moderately floral and lightly piney. Tastes more like a mediocre brown ale.
