UPDATED: DEC 15, 2007 Rerate Pick up a bit of a nectarine-like fruitiness in the flavor this time around. Enjoyable - same score. Original 3.4 Slightly malty aroma, thin, quickly dissipating head with a wee bit of lacing. Nice amber color. Nothing really memorable about the flavor - kind of dry with a bit of a bitter aftertaste little bit of a hoppiness to it - itís from the west coast ainít it?. Beats the Bud Light that they will be serving at the New Years Eve party I am going to.

5000 (6599) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - FEB 14, 2004
Bottle pours red with a large off-white dishwater head. † Little carbonation, decent lacing. † Hops and major amounts of spruce dominate this one. † Taste doesn't behold that Tree scent, it however does reveal the Cascade hops. † Mouthfeel is a bit thin, flavor isn't as bountiful as I would want for a Winter Seasonal, but still not bad. † Mild bitterness on the finish. † Prior years of Winterhook were better IMO.

The last of a sixer, but the first time drinking it while a member of RateBeer. I truly enjoy this beer. Balanced, complex yet no part of it is aggressive. It's hoppy, spicy, and earthy nature makes it a great nightcap to an evening of good beer, good food, and good friends. Still when I see the Redhook label, it first thing to come to mind is A-B.

onceblind (6378) - Denver, Colorado, USA - DEC 29, 2011
Clear dark amber, with a nice but small foamy head that left ok lacing. Aroma was confusing for an English Strong, or a winter ale for that matter. I got a lot of citrus rind, nutmeg, toasted biscuit, burnt toffee, and a great big dose of herbal hops. In the flavor the hoppiness was a little restrained, leaving plenty of room for some biscuity toffee malts to come through, with some citrus rind, a little nutmeg, and some soft bitterness from herbal hops at the finish. Not shabby, but nothing Iíd buy again.

HogTownHarry (6372) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - JAN 2, 2006
Bottle (12oz). Poured deep clear copper with a small white skim head. Aroma of crushed spruce boughs - itís almost all spruce resin hops, only the faintest hint of light roast malt; says "winter" to me. Taste is a nice blend of tea/orange peel hops, light malt - juicy faint woody malt, a nice evergreen crispness to it, some caramel and yeast as it warmed. Mouthfeel is astringent and lightly acidic, lightly carbonated - quite nice, not spectacular, but a nice session ale for this time of year.

Cletus (6355) - Connecticut, USA - JAN 25, 2006
Pours a coppery amber with a thin white head. Smells of yogurt with some mellow tangy fruits ans some nuts. Tastes peppery with some nuts, nutmeg, and spices shining through.

Pailhead (6142) - Plymouth, Michigan, USA - NOV 10, 2005
Bottle: Aroma is very roasty, nutty, and lightly floral. Pours a transparent garnet with a small off-white head. Flavor is very roasty and nutty up front with the slightest hints of chocolate in the background. Finishes moderately floral and lightly piney. Tastes more like a mediocre brown ale.
