COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Redhook ESB is modeled after the premium Extra Special Bitters found in English pubs. Brewed since 1987, this full-bodied amber ale is Redhook’s signature brew with its toasted malt flavor and pleasant finishing sweetness. Its eminently drinkable style has established Redhook ESB as a benchmark brew in the amber ale category. The well-rounded finish of Redhook ESB makes it a wonderful companion to grilled meats. It is also great with game and cheeses. Available year round.

A good (but not amazing) amber; my favorite thing about it is that it has a decent amount of flavor but is still light enough to drink in quantity

One of the better ESB’s out there (my favorite’s Welsh ESB, but that’s really NOT an ESB). Solid malt here and some good bitterness.

papajohn (1249) - San Diego (Mira Mesa), California, USA - JUN 16, 2002
UPDATED: DEC 27, 2003 Clear amber color with a frothy light beige head. Aroma is malt with a hint of citrus. Light sweet malt flavor followed by a light bitter taste. Over all, a pretty good beer.

I like this beer. At first, I thought it had kind of a weird metallic taste, but that soon disappeared. I really didn’t notice the 5.7% alcohol at all. The best aroma I have ever smelled in a beer.

jayme9874 (756) - Hamburg, New York, USA - JUN 10, 2002
Clear, light amber/orange. Thin head and lace. Nose of doughy malt, perfumey yeast and a trace of spicy hops. Creamy but thin body, decent malt profile with some lingering hoppiness but not put together all to well. Very drinkable just not interesing IMHO.
