heavier and more body than other winter lagers. there is a robust ginger taste that comes with a bite, almost like a pale ale, but darker, if that makes sense

Jkripp (141) - Washington, USA - JAN 31, 2011
This is a classic Redhook seasonal ale. Its bold but smooth flavor rests well on my palate as comfortable as a majority as my other favorite beers.

11.28.2011 - Houston, TX Bottle Well crafted winter ale. Dark, yet smooth and simple. Not too filling. Nice aroma with a nice blend of hops that give a delicous palate.

bconger (138) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - MAY 29, 2008
Bottle. Dark copper pour with a very thin head. Hops, caramel, and some yeast on the nose. Hoppy flavor up front with sour lemon and malty elements. This beer lacks backbone. There are nice high notes and the hops are decent, but it feels empty with too little middle-maltiness. Nice carbonation and mouthfeel, though.

blatz (138) - Palm Beach Gardens, FL, Florida, USA - DEC 8, 2001
2001I was kind of disappointed in this one. I was expecting a hearty, dark, rich ale, but I got a watered down ESB dark. Dark copper color, weak head that faded quickly and a dark taste that was reminiscent of burnt, watered down ESB (which I do love however). If you are buying several winter brews this year, and need to somehow limit whicch ones you get, this may be the one to leave off. Maybe next year.

Brewosk (137) - Illinois, USA - MAR 22, 2007
Nice Red/Amber color. Lasting head. Pinish hops flavour. Pleasant spiced aftertaste. On tap at Old Chicago

psuCE03 (135) - York, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 11, 2007
Pours a dark amber color and produced little to no head. Has a great aroma and was a very flavorful winter ale

hamrech (134) - Carbondale, Illinois, USA - OCT 17, 2009
The gold standard for average winter ales from mid-grade microbreweries. There’s nothing "wrong" with it whatsoever, but there’s nothing particularly good about it either.

sneezey (132) - Hackettstown, New Jersey, USA - SEP 2, 2007
Less hops than their ESB, a bit more balanced. Nice overall beer but not perfect. Bit toasty on the malt side, heavy but not too strong. Maybe just a bit thinner than expected but not bad.

beerbrat99 (132) - Shanghai, CHINA - DEC 31, 2007
Bottle. Pours a brilliant amber/orange hue. Tan head with minimal lacing. Aroma of malty roastiness with some bubblegum and sweet candy. Flavor is roasty and very dry with some residual candy notes as well. A decent brew but nothing to rock the socks during winter.
