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.

Good beer, but not the best from this company. Rich malty flavor does make it a good beer to drink.

Pours coppery. Smells of caramel and some vague earthy notes. Taste is some watery caramel. Not particularly bitter. Not the best example of the style.

IneedAbuheer (69) - Ingleside, Illinois, USA - MAY 22, 2002
A mild and fairly flavorful beer. Aroma was decent and the appearance was a good orange-amber color with a decent head that stayed. Not as bitter as I expected, in fact, not really bitter at all. An easy drinking tasteful brew.

Enjoyable amber, but really nothing special. It's a good beer to have when nothing else sounds good at the time...inoffensive is a good word.

I really liked this beer. It has a pleasant smell and the taste is pleasing. It went very well with my steak dinner. I really dig the dark copper color and 5.69 alc/v. Plan on getting this again.

Beer was pretty lackluster. Small head, little flavor. Lacking in hops. Won’t buy again.

kev1001 (67) - Montana, USA - MAR 30, 2011
Bottle. Pours copper/orange. Somewhat creamy mouthfeel. Not as hoppy or bitter or bold as I thought it would be. More malt than I expected. Some hops, a little caramel, a little citrus. Not a rememberable beer but not bad really.

A good common ESB that won’t steer you wrong. The full malted body goes down smooth and awards you with a refreshing bittersweet finish. This stuff is great on tap, and I highly suggest drawing yourself a pint should you have the means.
