Pailhead (6026) - 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.

riversideAK (5830) - 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.

FROTHINGSLOSH (5768) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 26, 2005
UPDATED: AUG 23, 2007 I have never been a big fan of this brewer but as I had never had this particular beer before I grabbed one. Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a dark mahogany color with a small dark tan head. The aroma is sour malt with an unpleasant off scent. The flavor is reasonably strong with caramel and has a flowery hop presence. The caramel and a hint of sour nut linger on the finish.

egajdzis (5699) - Pennsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 20, 2003
Poured a dark copper color with a bubbly off white head. Sweet hoppy aroma. Starts sweet and malty, finishes with alittle hop bite. Goes well with deep frying turkey outside, in the winter, for sure.

TheBeerGod (5689) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - DEC 12, 2005
Bottle. Pours a Copper body with a small white head. Nose is surprisingly citrusy and semi-sweet. Light toasted malt notes as well. Taste is toasted malts, orange juice, light toffee, and a bit of caramel notes. Thin spiciness throughout this one. Body seems thin with light carbonation. Finishes with more citrus and light toasty malts.

Suttree (5685) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - NOV 1, 2003
UPDATED: NOV 7, 2003 Cola brown, brown, thin head. Spicy, bready aroma. Earthy, piney flavors dominate, like when you lick the ground in the woods. Spicy and crisp finish. Above average, for Redhook.

Beerman6686 (5619) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 8, 2008
Aroma of malts and a little spice. Dark amber in color. Taste of bland maltyness and not much hops. Rather thin

decaturstevo (5613) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - OCT 17, 2006
An amber pour with a light lacing. An aroma that just doesn’t jump out at me it has a light malt and spice showing, but nothing bad. A flavor of light malt and spice. It has an almost sulphur like flavor to me. A bit of a bitter. A nice beer but not really special. I would drink it again.

Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - DEC 11, 2005
Not much to this beer. There’s a caramel malt base with some earthy and citric hopping to it, but little more. Doesn’t come across as an English strong ale, more like an EPA gone bad.

notalush (5514) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JAN 20, 2003
Hearty this is not. This is a very weak english strong ale. The aroma has a faint roastiness, but not really anything else. The flavor is thin. all the roasty, malty and sweet flavors that should be present are there, but in such minute amounts that this tastes almost like they watered-down the beer. This is a beer to be avoided.
