I bought this in bottle ( six pack) didn't last long as this is a very drinkable beer, the taste is very good , almost fruity..but with unfiltered yeast its almost like a hefe-weisen though I know its isn,t.
If you can find it anywere outside Oregon go ahead and buy it a very nice "session" beer.

UPDATED: OCT 24, 2011 Cloudy orange. Nice mouthfeel; mild carbonation. Smooth and mellow malt flavors with a milk-like sweetness and hints of cookie dough. Hops are only mildly bitter with herbal aspects. Has some cream ale qualities. Overall, it’s a solid session beer, just not overly exciting. BarePaw (148) - Pullman, Washington, USA - SEP 16, 2003
This one has the hazy, unfiltered appearance, with a golden color. When poured, it did not have much of a head. The aroma and appearance were average, and the flavor had a slight bitterness, but not too hoppy. Not a bad beer, but nothing outstanding either.

UPDATED: FEB 24, 2007 Rerate Nice copper pour with a soft silky head. Pleasant lemony aroma with hints of spice. Flavor has the same faint citrusy notes with some mild spiciness. Refreshing and a good beer to cook on the grill by. Original 3.2 Had on tap at the Copper Sky Grill in Seattle - did not realize it was a Redhook product until I saw in the grocery store the next day. Has a bit of a honey aroma to it - very pleasing. Dark golden appearance - not copper at all. Not much of a head or lacing. Smooth flavor with some sweet honey notes on the way down. Very smooth drinking - good compliment to the Cheeseburger I had. harlequinn (2744) - Tacoma, Washington, USA - JUL 10, 2003
A slightly golden amber hue in the pour, with a very short lived foamy head. Slightly hoppy with a doughy, somewhat fruity but could not narrow down the exact fruit hints. Semi-sweet in the finish.

Poured a dark orange, almost amber with very slight haze to it. It is unfiltered, so once the yeast is poured in it becomes very hazy. Small white head, average lacing. Aroma slightly hoppy with a yeast background with notes of honey, apricot and citrus. Flavor is mild with an absence of any floral hops. They used enough bittering hops, it is very dry and bitter on the palate, but the hop flavor doesn't come out. A little dry hopping would go a long way on this one. I prefer this without the yeast as it adds to the already bready taste and hides more of the hops. The yeast does add a more homebrewed taste to it though. baobubba (454) - Starkville, Mississippi, USA - JUN 24, 2003
Golden with a white head. Floral aroma (apricot, ice tea, a little sour). Light bitter finish. Somewhat refreshing. BillKismet (4103) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAY 15, 2003
Lambent orange soft foam head with profuse bubbles. Sanitized, stank hops with a brush of apricot skin in the nose. Light flavor, reflective of the aroma, but with a slightly sour finishgrymy (105) - Bel Air, Maryland, USA - MAR 20, 2003

This scotch colored amber left a diffuse tingly hop presence in the mouth, but otherwise was rather dull and flat. Not bad, but not quite good either--just unimpressive.

On tap at the 2003 Great Alaska Beer and Barley Wine Festival. Yellow beer with thin white head and very little aroma. Sort of acidic malty sweetness, but no real distinction. Not an interesting beer, but not really bad either.
