Bottle thanks to angrypirate06. Pours with an off-white head and a copper-brown body. Aroma of brown sugar, caramel and pine. Taste is caramel, light hops and pretty watery. Creamy carbonation. Not a horrible Redhook offering. SudsMcDuff (8428) - .....Manchester United.........., Texas, USA - JAN 27, 2010

Pours brown with off white head, aroma is thin with some nutty character. Taste is a bit thin, nutty character comes out with a bit of bitter at the end.

A dingy copper color with a lingering head. Malty aroma with a mild roast carries to the palate with good carbonation. A nice hop bittering takes place. Not bad. It has a very commercial sense about it. ditmier (1508) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JAN 22, 2010
2009 Bottle - Here is why I generally hate Redhook...this is a Spring ale that I just bought today that was bottled December 7 2009...it’s January 22, 2010...and this is a Spring ale, Spring doesn’t start until March...seriously, what the fuck, this is a new style that replaced the last Spring seasonal, and it was launched in fucking December? Whatever, apparently the marketing geniuses at Red Hook know what they’re doing so no more bitching...Pours out thin and clear, rudddy brown with a small beige head...aroma is malty and grassy, rough grain with a little bit of roast beef...flavour is tame enough, cereal grain, grass, toffee and some more roast...the beer isn’t terrible, it’s drinkable and not poorly thrown together, but if I stayed up trying to make sense of this release, I’d go cross-eyed...

UPDATED: JAN 16, 2010 Bottle. Pours a translucent brown with light red hues and foamy beige head. Aroma of light toasted grain, light chocolate, a little nutty. Flavor has a nice malty toastiness o it and a bit nutty, nicely balanced hop bitter. Mouth feel is light-medium body with high carbonation. Overall, I thought it was pretty tasty! glkaiser (1214) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JAN 13, 2010
Pours a dark amber with medium head. Very drinkable, medium bodied brown ale with light roast, a little chocolate and nuts, and an assertive balancing bitterness. Not going to blow you away with flavor, but it’s not meant to. Just a nice session brown and I’d have no problem throwing a few back. Cheers to Red Hook for this one.

12 oz. bottle- Pours amber brown with average head and lacing, the aroma is the same, no distinguishing qualities but not bad either. The flavor is possibly the best Redhook beer I’ve had, but that’s not saying much. This has a mellow nutty smoothness that I could drink all night, good job Redhook.
