Clear amber colored ale with a decent tan colored head.

Smell is malty with a good caramel scent. Grassy and woody hop aroma. Smells nutty and has a toasted grain aroma.

Starts out slightly sweet and malty with a good flavor of caramel and nuts. Some toasted grain flavor and grassy hop.

Mouthfeel is good.

Overall this is a pretty good ale. VERY surprised by this one. I wasn't expecting much but this is far better than any $5.99 a six pack beer you could hope for. I absolutely will buy again.

Henry Weinhard's Redwook Flats Amber has a very thick, creamy, cream-colored head and a clear, bubbly, reddish appearance, with relatively thick lacing rings left behind on the glass. The aroma is faint, but one can pick up sweetness, malts and a little bread. Taste is a nice balance of medium-roasted malt, brown bread, and slightly floral hop bitterness, with an overall sweet presentation. Mouthfeel is light to medium, and Henry Weinhard's Redwood Flats Amber finishes soft, semi-dry, refreshing, and highly drinkable. This is a very mild and pleasant beer.

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.

3.68/5  rDev +18.7%

Pours a light amber with a huge head that fades to leave a lot of lacing on the edges of my glass.

Aroma is average with some residual malt sweetness and almost no hop bite. The only reason I mention the latter is due to the trend of over-hopping red ales (of which this does not follow).

Very nice, mellow and creamy. Sweet and chewy as well. Drinks a lot like a cream ale or adjunct lager in terms of mouthfeel. Caramel on the tongue as well.

A decent palate of flavors stick around in the back. Clean finish.

I didn't care for the aroma but I really like the way this tastes. It's a good beer for those who may not be big on craft beer but are looking for a little more flavor than usual.

3.63/5  rDev +17.1%

Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has an amber color with a 1 inch head. Smell is of malts, biscuity, some hops. Taste is well balanced hops and malts, some caramel notes, very easy drinking. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a refreshing and enjoyable beer.
