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 is a simple but well-rounded, enjoyable lager.

Copper, it has a medium off-white head steadil shrinking to foamy ring and wisps.

Aroma is toasted white bread, hint of cheese, oranges, pine bark.

Taste is spicy peppery-piney hop bitterness, toasty barley (slightly caramelised), bitterness gentle but firm and lingering with caramelly toasty sweetness. The feel is nice and engaging.

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.

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 one pours out a semi-clear rust brown color. a lively fizzy head dies away in about thirty seconds. no real lace to speak of. carbonation dies off with the head. sweet caramel malted tastes are almost candy like. a snap of some cascade hops add some more bold taste. a seemingly thick and oily sweet mouthfeel makes it all slide down too well. this beer seems flat in body and mind. not a beer i would recommend or have again.

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.

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.

[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...
