12 oz bottle, slightly past the 2013 best by date, served in a lager glass.

Pours clear, deep amber colored, with a moderate size but exceptionally creamy head. The head has good retention and leaves a full coat of lacing on the glass with each tip. Lots of carbonation is visible.

S: caramel with some piney and earthy hops, but with a metallic and faintly musky tone.

T: Better than the aroma, but too mild. Caramel malt up front fades as the earthy hops build towards the mildly hoppy and slightly bitter finish.

M: crisp; light-medium body.

O: Decent, at least after it warms up a bit.

My good ole Kllians loving buddy mentioned in posts from years past elected to stop by for a chat today and as usual he had a six pack of some generic wal-mart wanna be craft swill of which he gave me a bottle because he swears by it.

Thanks buddy, sure it'll be the next Sucks.

Look - Pours a light amber with no head whatsoever and leaves no lacing. The carbonation bubble are very prevelant even in the slight murk.

Smell - Light toasty malts and a bit of grainyness. Not a wholr lot going on here.

Taste -.Admittedly, it was quite smooth though as most other HW products, lacking in the department. It follows the nose but the toast amps up a tad and the grains take the back seat. Sweet and a bit tart.

Feel - Medium bodied and heavily carbonated.

Overall - You get what you pay for.

12 ounce bottle. With DEC3112 on the neck. Best before dating?

Pours near clear reddish amber, quick to depart khaki head, leaves a trace of a film, and moderate fine lace.

Just a hint of sweet caramel tinged malts and dusty hops on the nose.

Middle of the road amber, "craft beer" for newbies, more caramel, very light hop presence in the finish. Ehh, nothing special, toss some chicken in it for a spell, give it to your BMC drinking friends or family members, create a little more interest for real beer. But dont expect a transcendant experience drinking this one

A: The beer is clear amber in color and has a light amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a quarter finger high beige colored head that died down a bit but consistently left a thin head covering the surface.
S: Very light aromas of caramel malts are present in the nose.
T: The taste is similar to the smell but has much more stronger initial flavors of caramel and toasted malts along with notes of earthy hops towards the finish. There are some hints of sweetness from the malts but the hops provide a slight amount of counteracting bitterness.
M: It feels medium-bodied and a little smooth on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer has a great mouthfeel, but seems like it could use more hop bitterness to help balance out all of the malts.

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.

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.

Ug, another screw cap.
Pours a fluffy like almost 1 finger head on a very aggressive pour with some lighter lacing, over ridiculously clear obviously over filtered amber reddish color.

Nose starts with light reddish malts, little toasty and sweet, hint fruity, hint of grassy hops, little caramel like malts, fluffy malty ale.

Taste starts with light malts, reddish semi sweet malts, a little caramel, but then into not so great flavors, an unhappy yeast or off yeast like bready chewy syrupy weird flavor, light caramel and toasty malt, some light herbal grassy hops, light bitterness, little icky oily flavor, almost rancid oil flavor, bleh. Finish is drier, more icky malts and oily herbal bitter hops, tingly.

Mouth is lighter bodied, fairly good carb.

Overall meh, quite icky and off flavors but not as bad as I expected from the last beer I had from them.

Henry Weinhard's Redwood Flats Amber from Hood River, OR.

This beer was a semi-sweet red amber ale. I thought it was a good amount of sweetness. Good taste. Not much of a smell.

I drank it out of a bottle from Kroger in Knoxville, TN on 12/18/2012 from a create your own 6-pack.

Yes.
