Pours a hazy rust-gold with a decent head that persisted. Started promising; the attack was sweet and yeasty. But mid-swallow and into the short finish the beer just peters out and fails to deliver. Not enough bitterness here, and the malt is rather indistinct. I wanted to like this beer but it lacked follow-through.

Bottle. Pours nice clear copper. Off white head that quickly subsides. Citrus and Floral Hops with a base malt, but not quite enough malt or spice for a winter brew. A very easy drinking beer and pleasent for what you can pick up at your local grocery.

Not a fan. Horrible hoppy flavor with notes of citrus. Had to choke the 6 pack down.

This beer is a dark amber beer with a strong malty aroma. Its medium bodied, smooth, and easy to drink. This beer has a roasty taste and a quick, dry finish with a slightly strange roasty after-taste. A decent beer, but not for those that arent already fans of Redhook in general.

Smells hoppy, piney, citrus, fruity, smells real good. Taste does not keep with the smell, however. Not that it is a bad taste, it just doesnt come through piney like the smell. Smells hoppy, tastes malty. Very warming taste to it. Overall, nice. Definitely distinguishes itself, however I was hoping for more of that piney taste but I guess thats why I bought SN Celebration.

(Bottle) This ale isnt that bad. It tastes similar to Pyramid Snow Cap, most Stone brews, Bass, and other traditional ales.

Draft: Had a amber pour with a nice head. Though dissapated quickly for me. The aroma was very nice and smelled... wintery (not surprisingly). Taste was nice, but perhaps overstaying its winter name.

UPDATED: OCT 26, 2013 Cask conditioned sample at the Redhook brewery in Woodinville, so this is the best that it gets. Natural overtones of dish soap and toe jam permeate this beer with just a hint of castor oil. Nasty aftertaste makes the drinker wish that they had brought some mouthwash with them. Head lays flatter than piss on a platter, and the brown color reminds one of dead leaves. Overall a very undrinkable beer, and well worthy of the Redhook name.
