I used to enjoy this now and then, once a year...it was good, ..once...years ago...
Appearance: a clear, light crimson color, with a small, flimsy head.
Aroma: Hmmm,...nutty, creamy, soft, but rather shy, hints of spice...
Taste: huh...HUH..HUUUH!...didn’t used to be so, shall we say, SHALLOW. Very thinly bodied, and I can’t shake it, can’t get around it, over it, or through it. It’s just flimsy. There’s some fruity, nutty flavor, but very small, and there is tremendously little texture...I’ll go so far as to say "none." Forgettable. Boring. A bit too sweet. The soul has been sucked out of it. Damn, I thought this was supposed to be an ALE, maybe even a hearty, WINTER ale...goodness me, what was I thinking...
I remember a day...sigh...

Light amber with some fine head. Piney nose though not much else. Steely mouthfeel with a dull hop finish. motelpogo (8031) - Plzen, CZECH REPUBLIC - AUG 16, 2004
i was interested to taste this as redhook is a name you see a bit in beer books. alas it was very poor, slightly nutty but utterly thin and boring hopdog (13246) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 12, 2004
On tap (12/10/03). Poured a dark Amber color with a very small tan head. Slight hoppy taste. Not a bad beer but I prefer their ESB. robertsreality (2460) - Minnesota, USA - JUN 24, 2004
Had at O.C. Brown Coloring. Wouldn’t agree with rich and hearty...A pinch watery... Don’t care to drink again.

man this brew makes me want to vomit everywhere. I’ll make it simple. Looks like dirt water. Smells like carrots. Tastes like carrot salad with motor oil on it. Finishes like most of my poop. Terrible

Bottled, lame is a word that springs to mind. Very dissapointing for a supposed winter ale. Light choc, caramel, little hops noticable, grainy and thin, no bitterness, cola like texture. beaconstreet (811) - Washington DC, USA - MAY 15, 2004
A nice color indeed, dark and rich with a layer of white froth. A hint of some kind of unindentifyable spice. This one is good for sipping slowly over conversation. mrkimchee (1414) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 11, 2004
clear brown, well retained foamy beige head. aroma of moxed berries and dried fruit, wholewheat bread, caramel and perfumy hops. the flavour follows but isn’t as nice. milsly roasty finish with some earthiness and citrus hop. god (18) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - APR 24, 2004
Smells like apples. Shallow off-white head with a lot of lace. Strong carbonation keeps the head up for a long time.
Caremellt-brown color, dry texture. The killer is the sour-alkaline finish that puts the nail in the coffin: not that great a beer.
