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.

pretty nondiscript actually, not much to cause complaint or offense, nor much to arouse glee or admiration. plain pale orange, good head that peters out pronto. an aroma thats a little sweet and bready like the rolls at kentucky fried chicken. drinkable, (yawn) with watery finish. well, i’d waaaay rather have a redhook in my hand than a fishhook, and they can quote me.

Burst of grain flavor with the first sip, that is a bit overwhelming, but starts to grow on you. Average amber

This beer tastes much different on draft to me. Slightly fuller gold color than the IPA, with a stronger piny hop presence. The little bitterness left on the palate deliquesces pleasingly.

Attractive color, but head dissapates quickly. Initial impression (cold) is thin maltiness with poor hopping. As it warms up, though it turns into a relativley decent beer.
