12 oz bottle with a best by date of 123112 pours a clear copper color with a small off-white head. Not much for lacing or retention.

Nose is light and nutty with a touch of caramel. Pretty bland actually with just a smidge of fruitiness.

Taste is watered toasty toffee with a light hop bittering. Very light flavor overall and Id classify this as a JAB: Just Another Beer. This is just something to wet the whistle, so to speak. Mouthfeel is very light and there is carbonation aplenty. It inoffensive, does that make it bad? I’d probably buy it occasionally if it was priced on par with Coors or the like and available in 12packs.

12oz bottle, pours amber in color with a thin, white head, good clarity, head dissipates quickly, leaving no lacing on the glass. Aromas are caramely malt, apple juice, toasted grain. Tastes are toasty grain, apple, grape nuts, caramel, earthy, metallic, familiar flavor of cascade hops are present in the finish. Feel is thin with moderately high carbonation, finishes clean. Overall, pretty average, maybe a little sub-par here.

Pours a clean orange-ish to amber color with an off white head. In the aroma, a sweet, small caramel roast that is quite faint. In the taste, mostly dry, sticky sweet to a dry caramel like malt. A small bite and a medium to lighter bodied mouthfeel, with a small dry, sticky skunky hop. EH! Skunky hops, quite lagery for an ale.

Surprisingly i actually like this beer..its the best beer that Weinhards have to offer and its pretty cheap too ,BONUS!
This is a good beer to have around if your having a BBQ and inviting the neighbours..its certainlly better than the macro swill ( its regional) and it was opne of the beers that turned me towards trying micros...so if you see it outside Oregon ..giove it a go..not a bad amber.

Finger of head with a reddish hue. Clear, copper colored body.
Smell is faintly lemon, faintly.
Plain Jane taste. Almost flavorless at first, mild bitterness to end it.
Crisp and clean texture, medium body with moderate carbonation.
Not bad, but not good or interesting.

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.

Henry Weinhardt's ... used to be, and perhaps still, is the best brew for the price around. It's been a while since I've seen more than a bottle here and there.

Pours a reddish amber. Smells like ... malt. Not much aroma to it, truthfully. Tastes like ... basically, malt. Maybe a bit of earthy/hoppiness to it. But, it's a fairly straight forward malty amber. Quenching, and a decently palatable mouthfeel.

This poured with a robust one inch head that was bubbly but stayed around for several minutes. The color was of orange but almost pink and appeared to be a Chablis in the snifter. I detected an undertone of sweetness and hops but maltiness dominated. The taste was of an average Amber Ale, malty and sweet but a bit acidic on the tongue. I would drink this again, especially at $6 a six pack, but consider it a run of the mill Ale.
