With all the talk of Redhook lately (Forums, 5/03), this showed up the other day in its new "long neck" bottles...

Slightly opaque and misty yellow, looks "illuminated". Poor head generation, just a rim-clinging ring that does leave 3 or 4 laces around te pint glass. Subdued aroma, a little lilac floral character. Interesting flavor, seems rye influenced, dry and mossy with a dank quality. Minimal hop bittering, a little unbalanced, but not overly sweet. Doesn't trail of at the finish, closes similarly to the beginning. Not a bad beer here, something a little different.

Pours with a thin, but determined head. Looks very light, but not pale. It looks like the sun in summer. It's a little cloudy. Since it's so light, when you look very closely, you can see the sediment floating around. It smells fresh and floral. Tastes very crisp and floral! Very refreshing. A little bubbly, but light and drinkable.

Ok new beer from Redhook one of my "fridge" was brewed on March 26th 2003 so its pretty darn fresh
Says it has roasted barley, delicate hops and a touch of rye andd is "slightly unfiltered" whatever that means.
Any way when i pour it into my pint mug it certainlly looks very attractive..nice bright golden yellow..with a small amount of took a slightly vigorous pour to get a small head..but it soon went to be replaced by a ring around the glass.
The aroma is pretty average..very clean and subdued but still pleasant.
Wow this beer has a great crisp , fresh tase then i can certainlly taste the rye especially in the after taste. Nice and not too bitter..but certainlly the rye sems to make all the difference..excellent..I am enjoying this.
Very nice on the tongue its dry at the start but doesnt finish dry at all..good stuff as far as I am concerned.
This has to be among the most enjoyable summer brews I have yet to encounter..happy I bought a few..very good.
