Best before date of July 22nd, 2013

Appearance - Pours a clear, brilliant amber with an off-white, finger width head. Sub-par retention, resulting in a broken layer of microbubbles across the surface. Very little in the way of lacing.

Smell - Moderate caramel sweetness on the nose.Subtle hints of earth and floral hop.

Taste - Mostly a light caramel and lightly toasted grain profile. Touches of diacetyl. Slight lemongrass bitterness near the finish.

Mouthfeel - Medium body with moderate carbonation. Smooth and drinkable.

Overall - Not a bad beer, mostly because there's not enough flavor to truly judge, but what is there is unoffensive, and is actually somewhat good. Just wish there was more. One of those beers you'd buy for a backyard BBQ or when you're feeling the need to get a buzz on the cheap.

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.

Poured into a conical pint glass.

The beer is a bright cedar-amber color with an orangish tint. A light cream colored head slowly recedes to a film while thick foamy lacing creates rings on the glass, initially.

The aroma is hoppy and pine-wood infused. Bitter also.

The taste starts out with a evergreen pines assaulting my palate. Faint, and I mean faint malts show up eventually, with no caramel sweetness.

Mouthfeel is a bit tangy, sticky.

Overall, I hate this amber. Bitter, dry, and hoppy. The opposite of every amber I've ever had.

[Suggested Glassware: Shaker Glass]

The pour was a clear light copper orange with an average (1-2 finger) white foamy head that reduced to a thin cap with fair spotty lacing.

The aroma was extremely mild of a light grain malt, grassy hops and an earthy yeast with a light note of caramel and maybe an adjunct.

The taste was lightly malty sweet with a faint hint of caramel at first, becoming mildly bitter and a tad hoppy towards the end. The flavor was short lived with just a light bitterness left behind.

Mouthfeel was light in body with a watery, dry texture and a medium carbonation.

Overall this was an ultra light tasting brew in every aspect. It reminds me of the light beers on the market today, but with just a little more flavor...

I poured this average beer into my tumbler at 45 degrees. The beer was a really nice amber color but that's about it. No head at all but did have decent lacing. The beer was a little dry but still was pretty refreshing some how. There was nothing really remarkable about the beer and for that reason I guess I'll have to say that I will not buy it again. Not for the high price I paid anyway.

Poured from the bottle into a pint glass, Redwood Flats Amber is a clear, very light golden amber color with a thin, bubbly white head. The nose is rather non-distinct, a mixture of carmel/bready notes that blend in a generic malty sweetness. The taste is also fairly generic, overly sweet upfront and transitions to an overly bitter, unpleasant finish. Mouthfeel is a light-medium body with a silky carbonation; probably the beer's best feature. Overall, not a beer I would order again, drinkable but not likeable.
