Aroma is malty with a bit of citrus. Appearance is copper, hazy, small tan head. Taste is malt forward, then grainy, then a bit of bitterness and alcohol hotness. Maybe some banana. Palate is medium. Bitterness and malt that dont go well together linger. Overall I do not like this beer. Goes from cloying, to off bitterness. Its is almost not drinkable IMO. jsmerig (1578) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 3, 2012
Aroma of noble hops and caramel. This beer pours a golden amber with a thick off-white head. The taste is caramel sweet to start with just enough hops to make the finish clean. Great session ale.

Pretty boring, refreshing on a hot day, but that's about it. Not much of a head to it, golden bronze color. Tastes like a malty pilsner

12oz. I love these local macros, picking interesting styles, making good beers in that style, and bringing them out to the masses. It is making beer better. Salty hop aroma, robust orange zest waxy body. Hops forward but middle ground malt-heavy brew. Tasty in context, which is not hard to imagine. I’d share this with my family. Session style. fishonmyplane (505) - Newington, Connecticut, USA - JUN 20, 2012
Dark amber color. Flavor is mostly caramel malts. Light to medium body. Red Hook is starting to remind me of Saranac, in the sense that their beers taste alright, but they lack any complexity or memorable character.

355mL. Pours clear amber. Medium off white soapy head. Soapy retention. Nose is sweet cherry and spices. Dog food comes through. Taste is soapy and very bland, tangy, lemon heavy, detergent. Palate is chemical heavy. Worse than the pilsner.

Completely average beer. innocuous flavor, a little sweet. Smells like sweet bread. Malty turn and frothy finish. robgibbens (432) - Gaithersburg, Maryland, USA - JUN 8, 2012
Nice clear copper color with a small head. Looks nice. Caramel aroma is straightforward. Clean, refreshing finish. burg326 (5479) - Florida, USA - JUN 8, 2012
12 ounce bottle pours a light copper color, aromas of bread, light fruit esters, floral hops and some sweet malt. Flavors are the same as aromas. bpreo (2832) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - JUN 4, 2012
Summer is almost here, but in Oregon it still feels like the start of Spring. This beer is appropriate I suppose.
