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.

An average beer, that was once great in my mind, shows you what money will do. But if you’ve been drinking a lot of american standards, and are looking to branch out, I would reccomend this beer to go from. It gives you some more flavors, without overpowering amerging beer drinker.

Calling this beer an ’ESB’ is kind of a misnomer. This beer has a very minor bitterness when you take the first sip, but is pretty mellow otherwise. Still, this is a good beer and is definitely worth a try.

For and extra-special bitter it is not, this beer is more like a lager, sort of reminds me of Fosters with a slightly fuller body.

Nothing spectacular about this beer. Just your average amber ale.

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

BillKismet (3321) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JAN 21, 2002
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.
