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. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours amber with white head, aroma is a touch of roast, caramel, nuts. Taste up front is some weak metallic hops, caramel, nutty roast, and a sweet slightly dry finish. Some good flavors, but a bit weak overall.

I’m liking these unique Redhook 12oz bottles. It pours out clear copper with gold hues and thin off white head. The mild aroma emits some sweet malts that border on being sweet date like as well as a bit of biscuit, a bit of floral hops and a sense of minerals. The taste is sweet with malts and then gets a bit sweet with apple and prune like fruity esters. Between these notes is a floral hop and lager yeast like quality (yes, ale with a lager like aspect) with a wafer thin biscuit malt like sensation. Easy drinkin’ but is a tad on the sweet side for my taste . . . just a tad.

Non-offensive to an almost offensive degree. The beer pours a nice color, but it is almost like you’re drinking nothing. Not like drinking water, but like beer that is completely neutral.

i am an idiot .... Pours a dark orange colour ... hearty lacing ... nice smell, wheat and some citrus ... average no frills taste, some nice sweetness, but doesn’t really have a defining high point ... will do the job and it is quite drinkable but probably not again ....

[email protected] freakout BBQ, the jungle, Kaua’i, 21/08/12. Er, copper with a well behaved several-finger bloom of foam. Soapy cherry, sweet hay aroma. Pretty flavourless with hints of nothing, old rusty metal, marzipan, stale boiled sweets. A dull beer to accompany a pretty exotic experience.

PorterPounder (8357) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - AUG 18, 2003
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.

FROTHINGSLOSH (8291) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 17, 2011
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a vibrant golden-apricot color with a large creamy yellow-white head that lingered and left decent lacing. The aroma was sweetish caramel with vague fruity and citric hops. The flavor was tangy and sweetish with caramel, lemon, orange, nut and bread elements. The finish was medium length tangy citrus, honey and bread. Medium body. Pleasant.

AirForceHops (8026) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - SEP 3, 2011
Draft @ Portsmouth, NH location. Served in my mug, can’t tell color. Light head. Malt and bread nose. Starts sweet and finishes bitter with a touch of salt. Flavors of biscuit, light caramel and light fruit hop finish. I’m really thinking Red Hook is getting too big. This brew is aimed at the masses, to commercial. Nothing to make it stand-out. Skip this one.
