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.

UPDATED: DEC 5, 2009 Location: Had it many times, can find it almost anywhere

Aroma: Malts, dark fruits, some spice
Appearance: Nice looking dark red color
Flavor: Mostly malty sweetness, some roasted flavor
Palate: Medium body, dull mouthfeel
Overall Impression: An average, OK, just decent winter ale...Not a lot of very interesting flavor here. Looks better then it is. **Update 12/5/09: Just had some of a bottle of this, but the rating seems about right, so I’m going to leave it here.

Clovy aroma. Reddish copper color with a thin head and good lacing. Floral marigold flavor. Nice ingredients but too bitter and floral for my taste.

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.

2.8
Pailhead (6543) - 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.

sonnycheeba (6539) - Federal Hill, Baltimore, Maryland, USA - DEC 27, 2013
Tap. Pours clear light brown with creamy beige head. Aroma is woody notes, light toffee, cereal malts, and light raisin. Flavor is dry earthy notes, ash, chocolate, and faint dark fruit; dry finish. Medium body and carbonation.

3
Suttree (6537) - 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.
