Easy drinking beer with not a whole lot going on. Good tasting session beer at a fair price. Carmel malt flavor with a slight hoppy bitterness.

Redhook ESB Original Ale has an aroma consisting of toast, pine, and mild pineapple notes. It pours an hazy copper color with eighth inch head but no lasting lace. The flavor is toasty with hints of grapefruit and raisins. It begins with a bitter aftertaste that lessens as it warms. This beer has a creamy, medium mouthfeel with a very mild warming feeling as it goes down. Well balanced. This is a very good ESB, easy to drink, and is recommended!

Nice beer, but nothing spectacular. I enjoy the color and the maltiness, but could’ve done with more hops to even it out.

Decent beer. Very reasonable priced (purchased in a "greatest hits" mixed case). Moderate white head, with little lacing on the glass. A little bitter, not my favorite beer, but better than many.

Great beer for the price, and refreshing on a hot day. Bitter in a good way. Very drinkable and not too bad of a hangover.
