UPDATED: MAR 27, 2007 Rerated 3/25/07 ... Deep golden, maybe an orange tinge. Orange-tinged (yes, I’m repeating myself ... hey, I’ve had a few beers) yeasty aroma. The yeastiness carries ... bit of orange, almost a corriander tinge, interestingly flavorful. Not bad. mikebeertaster (114) - washougal, Washington, USA - MAY 13, 2006
this isn’t a bad beer, but as beer goes it leaves something to be desired. Like a better beer. The flavor is smooth and I would call it happy. I llike stuff bitter and this is fairly far from it, but not a bad ale bhensonb (15753) - Woodland, California, USA - APR 28, 2006
Light citrus aroma, with a hint of strawberry? Light reddish color (ok, coppery). Medium dense mouthfeel, and a touch of grapefruit rind and stone fruit. Finish is slightly bitter, but hard to describe. Nice. Drinkable. trokini (1025) - San Diego, California, USA - APR 10, 2006
UPDATED: APR 9, 2007 New bottle, no fish. I enjoyed this beer. Pours copper with some head. Aroma is sweet with hops. Taste is very light, peach flavors, but mostly lighter hops and sweet malt. Smooth drinking beer. SDalkoholic (2424) - Linda Vista, California, USA - APR 6, 2006
Even though the bottle says it was bottled on 02/16/06 this beer has turned into a bottle of crap in less than 2 months. Looks like shit in a glass with huge amounts of junk floating about. Aroma smells like shit too with old faded malt. Flavor is God awful with only flavor of cough syrup and medicine like. Horrible beer.

Bottle. Aroma of a burnt corn, malted grains. Darker orange body with small head the disipates. Flavor is nothing out of the ordinary than common swill, bitter slight malt burnt corn and medium bitterness. Just an odd flavor combination in this beer to keep a person inteerested in it. luckygirl (1222) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - APR 4, 2006
My initial impression upon first waft isn’t a good one. Beer pours a vivid, clear, light orange color with a small, white, frothy, mostly and quickly diminishing head. The aroma is malty with a light note of toasted grain; hoppy with a trace note of resin/pine; yeasty with fairly unsettling moderately weighty notes of cheddar cheese and a trace note of tangy dirty diaper. The flavor is a flatline: lightly bitter, lightly sweet with an average-length, trace sweet, husky finish. The body is light, the texture is watery and the carbonation is average.

Damn, talk about having to concentrate to find any aroma. Just about nuthin’. Similarly BLAND in the mouth. Hwarrff! thoreaubred (42) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAR 26, 2006
This is the worst "amber ale" I’ve tried so far. Soapy and metallic and entirely uninteresting. I’m going to give Redhook one more chance after trying this and Blackhook (which I liked better than this.) luvcasks (178) - USA - MAR 22, 2006
Aroma: Vaguely malty with some citrusy hopy notes
Appearance: Hazy Reddish copper with a thin white head
Flavor: NIcely balanced with malt forward with very slight what I think is belgian-esque sournes
Palate: Light bodied with a short finish
Overall: The bottled version did not leave me thrilled but had enough intrigue to make me want to try one on tap
