Aroma of malts and a little spice. Dark amber in color. Taste of bland maltyness and not much hops. Rather thin

Pailhead (6539) - Plymouth, Michigan, USA - NOV 10, 2005
Bottle: Aroma is very roasty, nutty, and lightly floral. Pours a transparent garnet with a small off-white head. Flavor is very roasty and nutty up front with the slightest hints of chocolate in the background. Finishes moderately floral and lightly piney. Tastes more like a mediocre brown ale.

Braudog (6517) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - JAN 1, 2004
Dark brown with a whipped tan top. There's a thin consistency. It's a tad bitter and nutty with a metallic citric finish.

kramer (6490) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 9, 2013
Bottle. Pours a clear amber body with a small frothy off-white head that left some nice sticky lacing. The nose is quite good, lots of hops compared to what I was expecting. A nice balance of citrusy and English hops overlaying a slightly sweet toasted malt base. A slight detraction in that Im smelling a little iced tea like crystal malt, but its pretty light. The flavor is a bit on the sweeter side as well with the crystal malt, which is kind of a bummer. The sweetness from the crystal malt dulls the hops a bit too much, especially on the finish. Medium bodied with fizzy carbonation and a lingering sweetness. I wish this were a lot drier, cause the hops seem to have the beer going in the right direction. Decent for one bottle, but not something Id purchase again.

HogTownHarry (6381) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - JAN 2, 2006
Bottle (12oz). Poured deep clear copper with a small white skim head. Aroma of crushed spruce boughs - its almost all spruce resin hops, only the faintest hint of light roast malt; says "winter" to me. Taste is a nice blend of tea/orange peel hops, light malt - juicy faint woody malt, a nice evergreen crispness to it, some caramel and yeast as it warmed. Mouthfeel is astringent and lightly acidic, lightly carbonated - quite nice, not spectacular, but a nice session ale for this time of year.

Cletus (6355) - Connecticut, USA - JAN 25, 2006
Pours a coppery amber with a thin white head. Smells of yogurt with some mellow tangy fruits ans some nuts. Tastes peppery with some nuts, nutmeg, and spices shining through.

egajdzis (6278) - Pennsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 20, 2003
Poured a dark copper color with a bubbly off white head. Sweet hoppy aroma. Starts sweet and malty, finishes with alittle hop bite. Goes well with deep frying turkey outside, in the winter, for sure.

riversideAK (6256) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - DEC 5, 2007
Dark copper color. Aroma is sweet fruity malt. The flavor is dried fruit with a light citrus finish. Medium bodied. Not really very "strong". Average.

Suttree (6235) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - NOV 1, 2003
UPDATED: NOV 7, 2003 Cola brown, brown, thin head. Spicy, bready aroma. Earthy, piney flavors dominate, like when you lick the ground in the woods. Spicy and crisp finish. Above average, for Redhook.
