Tastes vaguely english, but with american hops, to me. Not particularly spiced, which is fine, but not particularly anything special at all. Sort of a lackluster beer, particularly for the holiday season, where brewers tend to bring out something very special for us dedicated drunkards... I'm not very impressed with Redhook so far.

This beer is just a basic ale. There really isn't anything fancy about it. It certainly isn't robust. There is alight hint of spruce on the palate, but after that, just a regular old ale. Make this beer bigger please!

Amber with no head. Aroma is minimal, if that. Flavor is bland with some malt flavors. Mouthfeel is thin and watery. It's not that bad but I expected much more. Probably if you feel like drinking a ton of beer this would be a good one.

(Newport Weekend) This was a good beer. I liked the complexity between the hops and malts. A good easy going winter beer. Nothing where you light yourself on fire beer. The deep colors and aroma where good.

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.

DocLock (11049) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 30, 2005
Dark copper pour, with minimal head. Aroma of caramal malt, brown sugar, some vegetals, and even brine. The taste was caramel malty but had funky vegetal off notes that I’m hoping were an aberration. I had a hard time finishing this one.

UPDATED: FEB 9, 2009 A fresh grassy aroma with caramel. Not a lotta of head and the body is lightweight. Nice balance of hops and malt with coffee, caramel and a peppery finish.

Not much to this beer. There’s a caramel malt base with some earthy and citric hopping to it, but little more. Doesn’t come across as an English strong ale, more like an EPA gone bad.

Has a spicy aroma that most winter brews have. Dark amber body with tan head. Body was thin not watered down but just a mild spice and bitter to it.
