maltdog (621) - Colorado, USA - JUL 11, 2005
Purchased fresh at the brewery in WA, sampled barely chilled in a tulip glass. Yeast-cloudy copper/orange... somewhere between polished bronze and cantaloupe flesh... with a small ecru head. Bright aromas of spicy licorice, caramel, menthol, and nutmeg. Flavors are complex and fascinating; rye and breadcrust, peppery spice, honey, yeast, walnut, juniper, and a hint of bubblegum. Medium bodied, tingly on the tongue, kind of coats the mouth like static cling. Mildy bitter, cedary aftertaste. All elements blend seamlessly. I think the "amber ale" classification is misleading- I consider it more of a hybrid or "specialty" style. Refreshing, tasty, and unusually spicy; rivals a top-notch Belgian ale. Wow!

Bottled. A very good amber with nice balance and a good slightly hoppy finish. Good full body. Wish we could get this on the east coast.

Anthonys - Belingham, WA Tasted like a generic amber, decent beer but no special. Mild hops and malt but a little watery

KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - MAY 7, 2005
UPDATED: JUN 14, 2006 Re-Rate. Bottle at Aunt Judy and Uncle Toms, Bainbridge Island, WA. Pours cloudy and viscous amber; a faint head and carbonation are evident, as is a whisper of yeast. Aroma is faint malt with grapefruit and a slight peach. Flavor is watery-sweet corn with a malty undertone. My girlfriend, Corey, says of the palate: "Fizzy on the tongue." I say it has a dagger-like intensity. Offensive! Average at best; leaves no lasting impression.

drismyhero (815) - Tacoma, Washington, USA - MAY 5, 2005
Lightly hopped with some kind of boring malt, its not bad just boring. Some slightly sweet hints with a touch of tinniness and corn. Seems to have that graininess of many lagers, like a beefed-up pilsner. Just boring.

kyzr (1456) - Montana, USA - APR 28, 2005
Nice amber color. Nose of hops. Flavor was more of extra hopped ale than that of an amber. I got more citrus tones than malt. Like someone said before, was more like an ESP than amber.
Earlier Rating: 7/20/2004 Total Score: 3.2
Amber in color with a quick head. Citrus with a touch of yeast nose. Hints of hoppy citrus with light malt balance. Clean finish to it.

Hazy orange appearance. Has a sharp hop tinge in the front with a trace of lemon in the finish. A nice drinkable amber ale.

beerinmarch (2830) - Washington, USA - MAR 11, 2005
From the bottle this pours a clear amber with a medium white head. Moderate citrus hop aroma, with a slight metallic note. Taste starts with a very watery palate, light fruity malts followed by a mild hop finish. Not much to this beer, just mild flavors. I remember the tap version tasting much better than this.

Nice amber ale...a little more hop than others Ive tried. Medium frothy head smells more like a mild american pale ale. Clean, crisp aftertaste...not a bad brew at all.

DarkElf (3061) - La Jolla, California, USA - JAN 12, 2005
UPDATED: JAN 13, 2005 (12 oz bottle) Is Redhook trying to hide the fact that they are the brewers of this beer? The only way to tell is to read the fine print on the edge of the label that says Redhook Ale Brewery. Well, if this were my beer, Id be trying to hide that fact too. This is a mediocre effort at best. It is dominated by a floral, peachy flavor, and is moderately sweet, but pretty light on maltiness. Sweet, peachy nose reinforces the characteristics of the flavor. Light in body, kind of thin on the palate. Golden in color, and cloudy, with small particles suspended in the beer. Small, whitish head barely maintains a thin rim around the glass, but there are many streaks and irregular patches of lace on the glass. Not a fan.
