Copper is a pretty good description of the color of this beer. It has a small and short lived head that leaves a small lacing. Aroma is a very pleasant floral, hop, and malt mixture. Flavor, like the aroma, is a combination of tart hops, sweet malt and honey. Nicely carbonated. Pleasant and refreshing.

Draft @ Portsmouth, NH location. Served in my mug, cant 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. Im 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.

UPDATED: MAR 19, 2004 Bottle pours amber with a medium sized off-white head.   Decent carbonation, good lacing.   Lots of very fine bits floating about, almost appears unfiltered.   Aroma is grain & malts.   Taste is much the same, but with a sweaty sock & ashtray finish.   Definately thin on the palate.   I can see why this is what they offer to BMC drinkers at Redhook.

Aroma and flavor is sweetish malts, mild tea and not quite enough hops/bitterness.

Braudog (6630) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - MAY 19, 2006
UPDATED: MAR 27, 2007 Rerated 3/25/07 ... Deep golden, maybe an orange tinge. Orange-tinged (yes, Im repeating myself ... hey, Ive had a few beers) yeasty aroma. The yeastiness carries ... bit of orange, almost a corriander tinge, interestingly flavorful. Not bad.

Bottle (12oz). Shared by garthicus with me and blankboy. Clear bright gold, smallish white head. Tangy, slightly harsh, sweet - apricot? Taste - same, cereal, generic bitterness, slight fake fruit - wtf? Slick, sort of lively, harsh building aftertaste. Not too good.

BBB63 (6557) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - MAR 3, 2008
Bottle and served in standard pint glass: Clean deep golden hue with a fizzy head and some lace. The aroma has notes of bready and caramel malt, herbal hop, some apple and pear esters, a bit medicinal as well. The taste is rather boring as it is missing the brash citric twang I was led to believe was here. Really noting more than a standard paint-by-numbers amber ale. Malty and sweet with a minimal hop bitterness. Additional there is a veggie and corn aftertaste that sucks. The mouth feel sprite but short, thin-bodied. What a waste of money, I was looking for something refreshing and this is not it.

ClarkVV (6542) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - SEP 21, 2004
2003 or 2004 bottle. Lovely medium-orange-amber color, with a touch of sediment floating around. Decent white head. Appearance looks great so far. Aroma is citrus hops, grapefruit, orange marmalade and some more fruity spiciness compliments of the hops. Flavor is moderately bitter, but well-balanced (relative to the style of course). Which by the way, how is this an amber ale??? Anyways, its got a good dry toffee/caramel like malt that dosent get too sweet but holds the bitterness in check. The finish had plenty of orange zest, grapefruit and a hint of bitter pininess. Body is medium, lively carbonation, hint of thinning and very drinkable. Loved it, actually, but then, I havent had a West Coast hopped beer for a while, so maybe I was just missing them. Thanks so much for the beer, Andre.

Pours murky, dark yellow with a small, off-white head. Scent is lightly fruited, caramel. Taste is malty, berry flavour.....raspberry/blueberry....slightly bitter, chalky berry aspects. My rate seems to be a bit anomalous compared to others, but, thats what Im tasting...anyway, I think its pretty good....light, fruity, lively.
