Thin, boring, funky. A little buttery malt, maybe, but not much of anything interesting. Gets the hook from me.

UPDATED: SEP 25, 2006 Brillant red/amber color. Perfect bitterness palate that does not come at the expense of the overhopped IPAs. I usually do not care for brewers that have a similiar flavor in all their beers( 3-Floyds, Goose Island come to mind) but this is one of my favorite session beers. re-rate. Oh what have they done to one of my favorite beers. The new design with the long neck is a weak, hop-water piss looking and tasting bottle of a macro amber.

I would like to try this agin in a draft variety. Much lighter than I expected. Tastey and slightly bitter.

This would just about define middle of the road American Bitter for me. At the right time and in the right place, I'm sure this can be just swell. Otherwise, a fruity, very slightly bitter American amber.

Verne (263) - Enumclaw, Washington, USA - JAN 19, 2003
Not my favorite a little heavy handed on the caramel malts and yeast character is a bit much. The aroma is a bit light, the hop bitterness is fine. And after saying all that it honestly a fine beer that someone with different taste would rave about

SmellGood (339) - Memphis, Tennessee, USA - JAN 18, 2003
The hint of hops at the end saved this beer from being labeled dull and ordinary. I rather enjoyed it.

spicedad2 (78) - Huntingdon Valley, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 16, 2003
An exceptional ale. RH is well balanced while being not-too-heavy. It's one of the best american ales that I have had.

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - JAN 13, 2003
Pleasant malty caramel aroma with a touch of hops. Pretty dull appearance. Smooth, but uninteresting and nothing out of the ordinary.

Medium amber, clear with decent head. Fairly well balanced and drinkable. Tasted pretty good in the club house after round of bad golf.
