Red Hook Winter Hook No. 29 (2013) has a medium-to-thick, cream-colored head, a hazy, brown, appearance, and lots of lacing left behind. The aroma is of sweet, spicy, yeasty, winter or holiday gift bread, with a hop zing in the background. Taste is of all that, with a somewhat piney bitterness showing up, mid sip. Mouthfeel is medium, and Red Hook Winter Hook No. 29 (2013 version) finishes refreshing, easy drinking, and rather rich. Overall, it works, and I liked it! RJT

TATE (285) - Lubec, Maine, USA - JAN 26, 2014
Bottle. Pours a deep amber with a thick off white head. Aroma is piney. This comes through in the flavor as well, bitterness throughout that lingers. Seems as though I can taste the alcohol even only at 6%. Just okay, the balance seems off for me.

hotstuff (4058) - Indiana, USA - JAN 22, 2014
Rated on 11-29-2009 (Bottle) This beer forms a medium sized fizzy beige head that mostly diminishes, transparent red with brown tint body, fast rising carbonation, and one ring of lacing. The Aroma is caramel malt, citrus and pine hops. The Taste is lightly bitter, caramel malt, and citrus hops. This is a medium bodied beer. Overall, this is a session beer as it is very easy to drink, has a nice hop presence as it is not overly hoppy tasting which suits me just fine!

Livendadream (97) - New Mexico, USA - JAN 18, 2014
Btl pours a beautiful clear brown color, creamy off white head that leaves great lacing but dissipates quickly. Smells of light roasted malt,toffee and floral hops and a hint of chocolate. Tastes of malt,chocolate, a tad bit of toasted bread and hops.Light to medium body, creamy texture, soft carbonation, dry,bitter finish. Good beer, nice malty taste with a crisp and clean hop flavor. Decent winter offering from redhook.

Draft->mini lager at RFD. Reddish brown with small offwhite head. Toasted malt with a little hops and spices. Very plain and unexciting. Eh.

J_man (685) - Tustin, California, USA - JAN 12, 2014
A very pretty beer that’s medium brown but looks quite red under light, topped with a solid light tan head. Fresh roasted malt aroma. Tastes like a freshly brewed brown ale with a good malt background. There’s some good earthy, pine hops to balance the sweetness. Leaves a good malty taste behind. Good winter warmer.

ryrpat (100) - Illinois, USA - JAN 4, 2014
Okay beer. Pours a nice bronze amber color. Not much of an aroma here and a rather bland taste. It leaves a lot to be desired ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

maekchu (1943) - Hirakata, JAPAN - JAN 1, 2014
Bottle. Good piney hop and very light dark fruit nose. Cola color, thin tan head. Thin watered-down roast malt initial / some hoppiness emerges / all fades out quickly. Medium body, a bit rough on the tongue. Not much really "winter" about it.
