12 oz. bottle. This was better, once upon a time. Sample from the first batch into the local market, and I’m feeling let down. This is more like a summer ale than winter. The color is lighter, the nose and flavor more citrusy than in years past, and there doesn’t seem to be anything "roasty" about this beer at all. This is the ESB with a fake suntan. I like the ESB, and this is a drinkable beer, but there’s no Winter in this Hook.

clear copper, light but clinging head. tinny aroma. the first sip, i was like "ew, tastes like amber bock mixed with bud", but after it sat out for a while it wasn’t as bad as i initially thought. not spicy at all, but a nice malty flavor. fizzy but somewhat watery palate. it’ll do in a pinch i suppose.

This may be the only beer from Redhook that I don’t care for. I can’t put my finger on it, but something in the finish just left me a bit queasy.

This is a good looking beer. The taste is not overpowering, but a strong, malty flavor definitely comes out. I don’t know what kind of hops they used but I would prefer something different.

Bottle. Well, this was just fine but nothing special. Flavor and aroma wise, it is very similar to Cottonwood’s Frost bite: Hoppy (especially in the finish), citrusy, but no caramel. Nice malt flavor. Cottonwood’s version is just a superior beer.

1/12/03. Clear ruby amber with a thin, quick white head. Mild hop aroma. Pine resin and hop flavor with caramel and malt. Good flavors to have in a beer but this doesn't come across as a good beer.

phildorsey (161) - Fort Carson, Colorado, USA - OCT 31, 2010
12 oz. Bottle. Pours cloudy golden with a thick frothy head. Taste is a little bitter and sour, and weak on the palate.

blkitson (158) - Westerville, Ohio, USA - DEC 23, 2006
This has a very furity aroma. NIce dark reddish brown color with a very nice head. Has a nice fruity taste, but which fruit is hard to distiquish. Very good ale

It had an amber color with a spare and diminishing head. The flavor was very smooth with a taste of coffee.
