Bottle. Pours nice clear copper. Off white head that quickly subsides. Citrus and Floral Hops with a base malt, but not quite enough malt or spice for a winter brew. A very easy drinking beer and pleasent for what you can pick up at your local grocery.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a hazy rust-gold with a decent head that persisted. Started promising; the attack was sweet and yeasty. But mid-swallow and into the short finish the beer just ípeters outí and fails to deliver. Not enough bitterness here, and the malt is rather indistinct. I wanted to like this beer but it lacked follow-through.

Not a fan. Horrible hoppy flavor with notes of citrus. Had to choke the 6 pack down.

This beer is a dark amber beer with a strong malty aroma. Itís medium bodied, smooth, and easy to drink. This beer has a roasty taste and a quick, dry finish with a slightly strange roasty after-taste. A decent beer, but not for those that arenít already fans of Redhook in general.

Smells hoppy, piney, citrus, fruity, smells real good. Taste does not keep with the smell, however. Not that it is a bad taste, it just doesnít come through piney like the smell. Smells hoppy, tastes malty. Very warming taste to it. Overall, nice. Definitely distinguishes itself, however I was hoping for more of that piney taste but I guess thats why I bought SN Celebration.

(Bottle) This ale isnít that bad. It tastes similar to Pyramid Snow Cap, most Stone brews, Bass, and other traditional ales.

Draft: Had a amber pour with a nice head. Though dissapated quickly for me. The aroma was very nice and smelled... wintery (not surprisingly). Taste was nice, but perhaps overstaying its winter name.

Bottle. Pour hazy amber a little bit of maltiness on the nose with a hint of coriander spice. Malts are balanced with nice bitter hops on the palate but the body is not as big as I would like. Decent brew.
