Tasted on-tap 09/27/05 at Mighty Mike's in Sterling, VA.
Golden-copper color with a low beige head. Light malt aroma with light malt spiciness. All malt flavors and no hop character to speak of. Medium-light bodied.
Nothing extraordinary here. A beer to try but not one I'd stick with or buy a sixer of.

I was at the store trying to decide what to get and saw this brew sitting on the shelf. I thought to myself, "self, you should try something new"
This brew pours a nice orangis gold with a nice head on it.
Once the beer warms up a little, the malts come out and play but are balanced nicely by a little bitterness from the malts. Also, there is a very good mouthfeel once the beer starts to warm a little. This is a beer that I will look for in the future... Not something that I would drink on a regular basis but would definitley have again.

Light honey colored with an orangey beige foamy head made up of bubbles of many and various sizes. Aroma is rich and strong, bready malts, fruity sweetness, some light spiciness of nutmeg. Flavor is rich and full, with typical Marzen smooth maltiness, a little doughey, a little sweet, some fruit and cinnamon, but also something a little edgey like some essence of autumnal dried leaves. Understated hops, just some lingering bitter in the aftertaste. Smooth mouthfeel, some tingly carbonation. Very drinkable, I've been enjoying this beer this Fall.

Beautiful amber with a light tan head, dissipates fast to a thin float that give a little lace. High carbonation.
Smell is of sweet spiced caramel, some hop notes mingled with brown sugar.
Taste is sweet caramel-like maltsthat and pumpkin that are quickly overcome by the surprisingly harsh hop profile that ends in a dry finish that moves into the aftertaste of faint apple, floral and pleasantly hoppy sensation. Very well balanced brew.
Full mouthfeel, great coating and textured going down.
Excellent drinkability in this well crafted fall brew.

A new one from Redhook. Clear copper color with a decent tan head that lies flat at 1/2 an inch in height. Fairly sticky lace, especially on the near side of the pint glass. Malty aroma, cinnamon bread, a bit of fruit and hop tickle. Mouthfeel is about medium, carbonation is average. Lots of malt to start, toasty with sweet tones that get a little tea-like when combined with an orangey hop oil bittering at the close. Actually a fairly sturdy brew in many aspects with a bite at the end. A few elements seem a bit papery and cardboard-like. Still, not a bad brew overall.

Nice little brew here...much like all the redhook beers...subtle but tasty..
Nice amber color....nose is sweet caramel malts...body is medium...taste begins sweet with a nice caramel flavor...subtle but evident...hopping is secondary but there are some soft herbal notes...not a BIG beer is body or taste but a good one....very nice caramel touch without going over the top....the hops lend a nice touch as well.
I have come to appreciate the redhook line for what it offers...subtle but tasty beers that don't blow you away but are almost always enjoyable...I could find a place for a six-pack each fall for this beer.

Thanks for NCLifestyle for pointing out this beer,poured a nice deep copper with a slightly off white head,pretty average in the aroma department though a hint of caramel and toasted malt but its faint.This is a straight on amber ale no frills some caramel and kilned malt a slight butteriness and vanilla pod in the finish not overly complex.Is it robust like the six pack says not really but its quaffable and has some decent flavor,not bad.In some ways it reminds me a little of Anderson Valley Summer Solstice in appearance and a vanilla-like finish.

Stopped by the Harris Teeter today, strolled down the beer row, and a new, nice looking 6-pack from Red Hook jumped out at me. Autumn Ale (although the box says Autumn Robust Ale), in a lovely burnt orange color with yellow highlights.
The bottle reads "saccharomyces cerevisiae" (latin for autumn ale?) near the bottom, and above that says "Homage To The Autumnal Equinox" on the label. 12 oz bottle with born on date of 7/27/05.
Poured into a pint glass, you get a bright amber color with a thick off-white head of large bubbles. A thin layer remains with the beer until the end, and moderate, at least sporadic, lace can be found.
The first noticable smell is sweet malt, maybe caramel or sugar cane, followed by a spicy citrus hint, maybe even a floral aroma. Not a bad smelling brew, just not overwhelming.
You taste a touch of caramel on the front of your tongue, which is lost to a nice hop rush on the sides of the mouth. I find a sharp tang, not wholly unpleasant, in the back of my mouth.
The beer has some carbonation, but not a ton, and feels moderately smooth but a bit thin in the mouth.
Very easy to drink, but, as the name suggests, would seem more at home on the porch in late september, early october, than in the dog days of summer (in N.C.). The aftertaste gets a bit strong for my likes near the end as the beer warms, but it's not that bad. Still, a pretty good beer.
