Mudslinger is a Nut Brown Ale with a Medium body and a fresh aroma. Its malty flavor is layered with light chocolate, caramel, brown sugar and a hint of vanilla. Six barley malts and two hop varieties result in a surprisingly smooth, well balanced dark beer.

Appearance: pours a healthy 2” beige sudsy head that recedes slowly. Good amount of lacing. Color is mostly clear light brown with moderate carbonation. Looks much like a glass of Coca Cola.
Aroma: fairly mild aroma. There is fresh water and bread dough with some chocolate malt. Mouthfeel: light to medium bodied, somewhat dry finish.
Flavor: medium roasted malts are the dominant flavor with chocolate, coffee, and toffee notes being evident. There is a mild, but noticeable, hop bitterness in the finish.

Mudslinger has a nice copper brown body with a tan head.

Aromas of molasses and milk chocolate. A malty smell and a little funk to boot.

Malty, alcohol comes off a bit too pronounced. Not that complex.

I really don't have much to say about this beer. It's a little off balance.

Poured from a bottle into a Pint glass displayed a clear medium brown brew with a half finger head, the aroma picked up was roasted sweetness and a little malt background. Taste was simple with nothing stepping forward, roasted malts, sugar and a little hint of bitterness. Mouthfeel was medium and nice and overall this is a nice Brown Ale, I've had worse and I've had much better....was looking to try this for a while but it's not something I'd seek out but then again I wouldn't turn it down.

I poured this beer into my tumbler at 40 degrees. The beer poured a great big tan head. The beer had a red color to it also. The beer had a slightly sweet taste and unfortunately a little bit of a metallic taste also or after taste I should say. I will not buy again.

Tried this one while I had a light case of seasonal allergies (read: smell and taste were a little muted).

A: clear brown-red, nice light head with good head retention

S: didn't get a lot, but what I did get was sweet and malty

T: nutty and earthy with a nice roasted malt flavor, hint of molasses

M: light, but a little flat

O: drinkable, malty brown ale. slightly underwhelming. would be very tasty with a grilled cheese sandwich.

A: Very light brown color, off-white head collapsed quickly and didn't rouse up much with swirling, filtered brilliantly clear.

S: This was the best part of the beer to me: malty aroma, chocolate notes, slight piney hop aromatics, moderate fruity esters. No diacetyl present. A bit muted, but in a nice direction.

T: Low hop bitterness, low hop flavor for style. Maltiness subdued, finish thin and watery. No diacetyl present.

M: Medium-light body. Low carbonation, bit of alcohol in finish. Finishes too thin.

D: A mellow beer, probably built around drinkability, but the bottle I had was pretty bland.

A- pours a dark brown with some amber orange highlights. Pours into a thin one finger head that hangs on the side.

S- smell of grass, faint chocolate, hop scent

T- tastes of cascade hops, slight chocolate hints.

M - to quote the later great George Carlin, the mouthfeel is "fairly decent" or " moderately neato". Not perfect, slightly thin for a brown.

D- Decent beer, not overly complex. I wouldnt kick it out of my glass, but I wouldn't go out of my way to find it.

During a visit to Portsmouth we took the opportunity to visit Redhook Brewery. Tried the Mudslinger Spring Ale. The color was darl amber / brown with a white head and some lace. The nose was a missing, nothing to report. The taste was good, a nice touch of maltyness helps this beer. The mouthfeel was good and I certainly could do a Session with this beer.

A little early for a springer beer in mid January, but I won't let that stop me. Appearance pours a dark amber with a fair head and good lace. Smell of malt, caramel a little molasses and nutty. Taste is woodsy with the caramel malt having a low hop to it and there is something else there that I just can't put my buds on, but leaves a cloying. Mouthfeel is medium that goes down slick with the low carbonation. Still has a little heaviness to it that makes me call it more of a late winter than a spring beer.

Mud Slinger, on-tap @ Kahootz Meridian ID. Served in a pub nonic.

A: Pours a very deep dark coppery color, mostly transparent with golden hues around the edges. Very light head lacing.

S: Toasted caramel, sweeter malt, bread, nutty flavors and dryness, a light honey and fruity quality which I'm assuming is from the English Ale yeast.

T: Light spices and crisp, grassy hoppiness emerge on the palette, still a very malty brew. Medium sweetness, very bready, with toasted grain and caramel/toffee notes as well.

MF: Medium-to-light body with some stickiness, low carbonation.

O: A decent enough Brown, serviceable and sessionable.

This beer pours a clear dark amber, not quite brown, color. The head is one inch in height, and recedes slowly into decent lacing. The aroma is of faint caramel, and not much else. It is a very simple aroma for a brown ale. The taste is similar to the aroma. Boringly simple. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with moderate carbonation, and a velvety texture. This is a nice mouthfeel. Overall, this beer is everything I have come to expect from Redhook....mediocrity. While it isn't horrible I can't see myself turning to this beer when I'm in the mood for a brown ale.

Bomber into standard pint.

A: pours clear brown with copper highlights. A quarter inch of offwhite head that was pretty fluffy and fell to a thin but complete cap and is leaving some lacing on the sides.

S: beery. Sweet caramely notes. Otherwise not much there.

T: sweet but not cloying. Lots of caramel malt flavor followed by a bit of herbal hop that balances out the beer. quite drinkable.

M: light and smooth. Increases the drinkability. Could easily finish a couple of them.

O: not well aquainted with the nut brown ale style but if this is average to good then I like 'em.

A medium amber-brown color with thin, off-white head that dissipates pretty quickly. The aroma is grainy, slightly nutty with a hint of caramel. The flavor is about the same; light, grainy malts with a bit of caramel. A slight hop bitterness. Quite thin on the flavor though. The mouthfeel is good, crisp and slightly thin but substantial enough.
