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.

Thick body. Deep reddish color with quickly dissipating head. Sourness mixed with spiciness. Not much aftertaste.

Nice dark color. Great thick taste. Good amount and color of head. Good amount of alcohol.

Reddish body with rising carbonation, small white head, malty nose. Bitter start, bready finish.

This beer is just a basic ale. There really isn't anything fancy about it. It certainly isn't robust. There is alight hint of spruce on the palate, but after that, just a regular old ale. Make this beer bigger please!

Huh. The main problem here is that I just had Bell's Old Ale and this beer instantly came on like the whiny, annoying third cousin of that marvelous beer. This is pretty pathetic - quiet, limp, basic stuff.

You can tell this was made by Redhook, it has that " taste". Brownish amber color, with a piney aroma. This finished slightly dry. Not as good as their ESB but still worth drinking during the season.
