It was a rich brown color when poured, the head dissapates fairly quickly. It has a malty, nutty flavor with just the right amount of hops. Very nice clean finish, over all a quite nice nut brown by these folks.
Aroma and flavor is nutty malts, mild fruit and a standard brown ale/smooth finish. slowrunner77 (13179) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 25, 2014
"Fairly typical brown ale, which is to say, pleasant enough but nothing special. I guess that’s all i could have hoped for. I’ve only had a couple standouts from RH. Anywho, light roast and caramel, with a hint of nut and chocolate in the nose and aroma. A tad too carbonated. alexsdad06 (11222) - West Chester, Ohio, USA - JUN 5, 2014
Bottle sample from old notes. Pours brown with auburn highlights and a medium sized off white head. The aroma and flavor have nuts, brown sugar, caramel toasted malts and light citrus. Some earthy notes to the finish. Average at best. gopherfan99 (2012) - Minnesota, USA - MAR 30, 2014
Bottle, pours brown with a cream colored head, toasted malt taste with some caramel and nuts. Not bad. otakuden (1783) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - OCT 20, 2013
Clear dark browns with garnet edges under a khaki head that fades into a creamy layer. Swirls thick but with no lace.

Chew sticky caramel squares. Skor bars. Cinnamon and nutmeg along the edges. Cinnamon spiced apple slices in the middle – soft. Chocolate powder drifts along an Autumnal breeze. Graham crackers on top.
Medium to medium-light weight. Dry in the middle with apple skins, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Slick along the sides with a mixture of melted treacle, toffee, and caramel. Whisper of diacetyl in the back mingles with a nondescript nutty bitterness. Chocolate powder in the breath.
Not too shabby of a nut brown ale from Redhook; I’d drink it again. The only slightly off-putting note was the weird sweet bitterness in the end, but maybe my bottle was old. Overall though a pleasant surprise which I enjoyed from first quaff to last.
Drank straight from the bottle. Leftover from a tailgate in which the game was so bad that the beer remaining became the highlight of that swirly Saturday evening. A smooth and medium bodied brown ale with nice barley notes and a bit of sweetness. Not bad. edgallow (4618) - nashville, Tennessee, USA - MAY 10, 2013
12 oz bottle pours brown with a thin tan head. Aroma of caramel, nuts, and a hint of pine. Taste is roasted malt, nutty and bread. conway (2210) - - MAR 12, 2013
Uploading old ratings that were missing comments. Not very complex but it did the job on a hot summer day and was very sessionable.

Dimpled mug. Reddish brown with no head or lacing. Very little nose. OK taste of nuts and malts. Ends with a slightly thick mouth feel. This was an old bottle and I am unsure what if anything to attribute to that. Very disappointed Radek Kliber (7501) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - NOV 25, 2012
Bottle 12 fl oz
Aroma: malty , sweet sided , slight nutty hop hints, touch of black tea , tannins. Fruity finish.
Look: dark amber with hint of brown, mi lighter fizzy creamy cap.
Taste/palate: sweet front with soda like feel , plenty of caramel. Sweet mellow mid. Too sweet even for me. Far too sweet. Slight hint of lemongrass at finish.
