1/12/03. Clear ruby amber with a thin, quick white head. Mild hop aroma. Pine resin and hop flavor with caramel and malt. Good flavors to have in a beer but this doesn't come across as a good beer.

This has a very furity aroma. NIce dark reddish brown color with a very nice head. Has a nice fruity taste, but which fruit is hard to distiquish. Very good ale

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.

It had an amber color with a spare and diminishing head. The flavor was very smooth with a taste of coffee.

Clear brown/amber. No head. Mild aroma, toffee if any. "Drinkable", I guess. Mild if any hops, slight metallic flavor. Won’t buy next year.

UPDATED: DEC 23, 2006 Bottle: Amber color with off-white, thin head and no lace. Floral aroma with hints of citrus and pine. Quite apealing. Wonderful spices, citrus, and pine in the mouth, hops present through out. Finish is a little weak, as was the body, but a pleasent pine flavor lingers. I found this to be a very fine beer, just not a very good example of the style.
