"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.

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.

Bottle, pours brown with a cream colored head, toasted malt taste with some caramel and nuts. Not bad.

Appearance: Clear dark browns with garnet edges under a khaki head that fades into a creamy layer. Swirls thick but with no lace.
Nose: 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.
Palate: 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.
Final Thoughts: 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.

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.

Uploading old ratings that were missing comments. Not very complex but it did the job on a hot summer day and was very sessionable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
