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. bendz1 (87) - Ankeny, Iowa, USA - JAN 6, 2007
Not a fan. Horrible hoppy flavor with notes of citrus. Had to choke the 6 pack down. warriorx99 (85) - USA - JAN 27, 2006
This beer is a dark amber beer with a strong malty aroma. It’s 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 aren’t already fans of Redhook in general. lipscomb216 (80) - USA - DEC 15, 2006
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 doesn’t 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 isn’t that bad. It tastes similar to Pyramid Snow Cap, most Stone brews, Bass, and other traditional ales.

Good overall strong Ale. light spicy taste with clean finish. Would drink this one again. shanereid (75) - Portsmouth, Virginia, USA - NOV 13, 2005
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. ttboy8099 (73) - Corvallis, Oregon, USA - FEB 6, 2002
goog, but not the best winter ale JFParnell (72) - Washington, USA - SEP 30, 2012
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. hollybeery (66) - Texas, USA - JAN 13, 2011
Bottle. Pour hazy amber a little bit of maltiness on the nose with a hint of coriander spice. Malts are balanced with nice bitter hops on the palate but the body is not as big as I would like. Decent brew.
