Ughsmash (7508) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 8, 2007
Bottled on 7/18/07. Poured an ugly, cloudy medium orange with very little carbonation and only the faintest dusting of head. My first impression from the aroma was "American wheat ale".. had that sweetened-up-to-make-it-tolerable/intriguing/palat character to it.. some of the sweetness appeared berry-related.. I just didn’t dig it. The flavor was a little more agreeable.. lightly-toasted berries and caramel at the core with a mild grassy/herbal hop presence.. more berries on the finish, which made it a bit hard to choke down.. decent mild smoky accents throughout. Lighter-bodied with lower carbonation on the palate.. man.. I just didn’t care for this. Radek Kliber (7362) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - NOV 30, 2008

Nothing but hops in the aroma but first taste shows some nice malts. Was my bottle flat? There was absolutely no head and just a hint of lacing. Some caramel and dark fruit are present and just a bit of grapefruit. Late in the glass the hops take over and the malts fade. Mouthfeel is thin and there is a slight tart and bitter aftertaste but the beer is very clean tasting. AirForceHops (7240) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - AUG 19, 2010
On tap at Redhook Portsmouth. Pours a very nice light brown almost red color. Scent of toasted malt and light cinnamon. Lightly hopped taste at first, then slowly mellows to a sweetness that leaves a very nice smooth aftertaste. AmEricanbrew (6878) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - SEP 18, 2010

Bottle (12oz). Amber pour, clear, with a good-sized foamy-creamy beige lasting head. Very light aroma - sweet malt, floral, perhaps a little earthy. The taste - eww - plastic and sugar, that’s about it - maybe stale weeds soaked in pond water that’s had a big bag of Pez candies lying at the bottom for a couple of years. Light body, soft and weakly carbonated, finishes quick and leaves a linger of slight stale bitterness (maybe that’s the previous beer intruding on my palate). Pretty bleh or, at best, meh. 5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - OCT 5, 2005
Bottle: Amber, hues of dark/burnt orange, moderate light beige head that leaves behind very nice lacing, but not much in the way of carbonation.   Nose of grains and oddly enough, canvas.   Malty start, slight astringency or metal immediately after, though not too strong, with a slightly nutty finsih.   Body and mouthfeel are fairly average... this is Redhook ya know.   I will say it does have a rather smooth and somewhat cleaner finish.   Gets a bit better as it warms up.   Thanks Clark for the chance at trying a Redhook that is not brewed down the street from me in Woodinville.   Everyone will wonder where the hell I got this beer. =) wlajwl (6812) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - APR 16, 2017
Aroma and flavor is mild caramel malts, fruit and a low but decent hoppy finish. Braudog (6716) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - SEP 11, 2005
UPDATED: OCT 22, 2006 Copper-orange with but a thin head. Interesting hop-floral nose. Caramel malt rules the roost with a bit of apple bitterness following. I’d drink this again. ClarkVV (6708) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - SEP 7, 2005
UPDATED: SEP 12, 2005 Bottled on 7/19/2005 consumed on 9/6/2005. Nice looking beer. Brilliant amber-caramel with deep strawberry blonde highlights. Tons of cream colored head. Lots of medium-sized bubbles. Pretty clear. Head is well-retained and laces well. Smells like citrus. Bit of sugary bread dough. Orange-herbal tea as well. Flavor begins with pale grains, bit of light caramel. Dry flavor and rather wet on the palate, texture wise. Nice to see no overcarbonation. Not much aroma strength though. Hoppy and lightly bitter but I’m actually getting alcohol notes in the flavor. Kind of an odd, dull, papery feel to it. Bit of grapefruit and oranges. Kind of meaty at the end. Big, loose, aerated texture is rather annoying. CItrus hops and plain old sugary malt. Alcohol still apparent at the end. Medium to medium-light bodied. Bready. For being filtered and force carbonated, it does look quite nice though, I will reiterate.
