3.35/5  rDev +8.1%
look: 2.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

12oz bottle poured into an Imperial pint glass. The date on the bottle reads December 31, 2012 but I believe its a best by date.

A - Small cap of off-white head with some big bubbles falls to a small cap. The beer has great clarity and is a light amber. Small bit of lacing left.

S - Pleasant bouquet of citrus hops is most forward. They also seem to have a melon character as well. Some biscuit malts are there but understated.

T - Malt has a better edge here with some toasty flavors that hold throughout. Hops still play a big role following along with the smell. The hops are citrus-like but somewhat earthy. Has a bit of bitterness to it that starts about midway through. Finishes somewhat dry but with a nice balance of hops and malt after.

M - Medium to medium-light body, moderate carbonation, semi-dry.

O - Unsure what exactly to make of this beer. Had a solid aroma with a focus on hop character. Flavor was right there as well but in both fields seemed to be off-balanced. Could have used more malt emphasis and dimension within. Good drinkability but nothing I would recommend or buy again.

2.95/5  rDev -4.8%
look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.25

Appearance: 1.5” off white head recedes and leaves light lacing. Moderate carbonation bubbles stream through the mostly clear amber/copper brew.
Aroma: fairly mild – bready malts are most prominent, some caramel, and a little hop spice. Mouthfeel: fairly light bodied and watery, with a somewhat dry finish.
Flavor: whole wheat bread, mild citrus (orange peel), caramel, and a slight saltine cracker flavor. Overall: Not a bad beer, nothing too exciting.

Sampled last night on 3/22/14, Bottled chilled down to 36 degrees F in my beer cooler and poured into a handled glass stein.

Pours a nice pretty deep amber in color with a very thin off-white head. Some spotty lacing was seen when sipped but not a lot. The aroma of caramel malts hits you right up front first with some other grains. The taste is about the same with the caramel malt sweetness and fades into some hops and then has a dry and slightly bitter finish.

3.74/5  rDev +20.6%

I bought a six-pack of Redwood Flats Amber Ale in a grocery store. Poured in to a pint glass.

Pours a shiny copper/bronze color, clear with a foamy off-white head.

Smell is a sweet earthy aroma, Sweet peat, leaves and grass fragrances.

Taste is as sweet as the aroma, with a cereal and caramel malt flavor up front, with a dry bitter grain flavor on the finish.

Mouthfeel is smooth and clean with light carbonation.

Overall a decent amber. These Henry's products are reasonably priced, and this one tastes pretty good so I'll probably buy more of this.
