UPDATED: FEB 8, 2009 BOTTLE: amber/clear color, aroma is light. A little hoppy, with spice tones and slight nut flavor. Just okay.

Ibrew2or3 (7201) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - NOV 20, 2006
12 oz bottle stating 6% ABV. Nice copper color with frothy off white head. Great lacing. Light malty aroma with some cinnamon and a bit of hops. The flavor sports a full caramel maltiness backed up by a grapefruit hop bite. Hidden between the malts and hops are hints of nutmeg and cinnamon.

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - DEC 28, 2003
Pours a deep copper with an eggshell colored head. Very fresh hoppy aroma, like a good IPA. Body starts with a nice hoppy kick and trails off into a more caramel malty side. Good crisp bittersweet finish. A very nice hoppy amber. I wouldn't really consider it an English Strong Ale.

i was interested to taste this as redhook is a name you see a bit in beer books. alas it was very poor, slightly nutty but utterly thin and boring

sebletitje (7023) - Enghien, BELGIUM - DEC 10, 2008
Pours ruby/amber, tan head. Aroma is hoppy with herbal-pine. Taste, hoppy with caramel malts. Overall mouthfeel and finish is hoppy and caramelized. Found the beer to be too hoppy and lacking any significant spices to make this one a trully enjoyable winter ale.

arminjewell (6980) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - OCT 4, 2010
Pours dark red with off white head, aroma is some caramel, nuts, roasted malt, touch of vanilla. Taste up front is some sweet caramel, biscuit, vanilla, leading into some nutty flavors and finishing a bit dry and bitter with the roasted malt. Pretty good!

douglas88 (6577) - Portland, Oregon, USA - DEC 16, 2013
Bottle from the grocery store. Pours a clear mahogany color with a medium beige head. The aroma is light spices, some caramel and toasted malts. Smooth, actually quite hoppy, some pine, toasted malts, nutty, citrus, some caramel. Quite nice really. And a good price. Really smooth and fairly light. Well made.

Radek Kliber (6571) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - NOV 30, 2003
Thick creamy head, dark hooked amber, Aroma of sweet malt. Soft in taste, caramel malt, light theme. Good texture, but somehow to shallow.

swoopjones (6524) - Buffalo, New York, USA - DEC 19, 2007
On tap @ Coles Buffalo NY. Nothing real special here but nothing really bad either. Nice easy drinking winter warmer. Darker amber color, some light spiciness & roastiness. medium body. Rather smooth & unobtrusive beer. Nice winter session beer.

blipp (6489) - Newark, New Jersey, USA - DEC 15, 2008
Bottle. Pours red amber with an off white head. Floral hop aroma with some sweet caramel malt. The flavor is well balanced, for floral hops, a bit lighter than the aroma, and sweet caramel. Not bad.
