Nothing special very plain drinkable. Light malt and hop flavor. Finishes clean and dry.

What the hell was this all about? I thought i bought myself a winter ale, not a wussy brown ale? Whattup guys??? So this thing poured a reddish brown mix..mostly amber with no head. The aroma was mildly malty, some hints of fruit, but nothing that said, smell me!!!! The taste was heavily malty, a lil' nutty, and all disappointing. It went down smoothly, with little carbonated value or any other exciting qualities. Truly boring. It may have had the slightest bit of spice, but given that it was so tiny, i could not distinguish it by any means. Wake me up when Redhook wakes up and listens to the fine beer drinkers of the world.

Mildly disappointing ale. A little whimpy and run of the mill for a winter ale. Amber-brown. No head. Decent aroma and flavor. Nothing special. texture also middle of the road.

Trying not to be biased against ale, this beer still didnt cut it. Redhook seemed a bit flat for my taste.

Amber with no head. Aroma is minimal, if that. Flavor is bland with some malt flavors. Mouthfeel is thin and watery. It's not that bad but I expected much more. Probably if you feel like drinking a ton of beer this would be a good one.

Bottled. A rather disappointing beer. Nothing wrong with it. Just didn't do anything for me. Had a little spice flavor, but mainly it was just a beer.

I bought a case of this beer back in December and gave most of it out for Xmas beer to my friends and family. Nobody came back to me with any remarks on this beer. I put a few aside for myself and I was not impressed. Winterhook taste wise was a far cry from other English Strong Ales I've tried. Maybe it's the way the Yanks brew this style of beer because I was also not impressed by Weyebacher's Winter Ale, supposably another English Strong Ale.

Dark brownish red in color. Poured without much of a head. Smells yeasty but yummy. Metallic aftertaste.

Pours a light brown color with little head. The aroma is rather bland and weak. The flavor has some strong, boring malt flavors. Not much complexity or balance. Rather uneventful I must say.

Slightly spicy ale, with nice color, but weak aroma. Decent, but certainly nothing exceptional in this offering from Redhook.
