UPDATED: JAN 9, 2014 Similar to an American Amber Ale with more hops and spices, although its a little more subdued in comparison to other, more hoppy Ambers.

Dark brown with a whipped tan top. There's a thin consistency. It's a tad bitter and nutty with a metallic citric finish.

HogTownHarry (6611) - 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.

kramer (6609) - 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.

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

The last of a sixer, but the first time drinking it while a member of RateBeer. I truly enjoy this beer. Balanced, complex yet no part of it is aggressive. It's hoppy, spicy, and earthy nature makes it a great nightcap to an evening of good beer, good food, and good friends. Still when I see the Redhook label, it first thing to come to mind is A-B.

ClarkVV (6539) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - JAN 20, 2004
UPDATED: JAN 29, 2004 2003 draft. Big dark red color with some bright oranges. Moderate sized copper colored head that leaves quickly. Clear. Aroma of light red/orange fruits, some mild hops and a good earthiness. I was very impressed with the flavor. Balanced, enjoyable. Lightl tart cherries and a good malt backbone with some spiciness to it. Very good to style. Faint bready and nutty flavors. No astringency. yum. Now if they could only fix their ESB.

Pailhead (6539) - Rochester Hills, 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.

egajdzis (6434) - 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.
