COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A rich, hearty ale brewed for a clean, dry, roasty palate.

Gregis (1281) - Shawnee, Kansas, USA - DEC 23, 2007
Pours a crystal clear copper with a frothy, beige head that subsides, leaving behind patchy lace. The nose is tainted by a slightly phenolic (plastic bag) note over light caramel and faint, earthy hops. Light to medium-bodied, with soft carbonation, the palate concludes with a dry and slightly astringent finish. Fairly bland, the flavor is of faint caramel behind dull, earthy hops and metal. This one is pretty much like a sub-par amber ale with the hops tuned up just a notch. It just doesn’t work for me.

An okay winter ale offering from Red Hook. I was really expecting more, though.

Bottle looks like a chode. Taste is relatively bland but what it lacks in taste it makes up for in alcohol content.

hennes (934) - Fountain, Michigan, USA - DEC 8, 2001
It may be my outraged sensibilities talking, but ever since they got in the sack with Anheuser-Busch, the quality of Redhook seems to be diminished. The 2001 Winterhook is strange and frothy in the mouth and curiously weak in body. The tastes are muddy - rancid butter, sourdough bread, badly aged raisins, and pine resin. Not a pleasant beer at all, at all.

baobubba (454) - Starkville, Mississippi, USA - NOV 29, 2002
Copper color, little head. Malty/fruity aroma - dried apples, pears, and caramel. Sweet flavor, slight bitter finish, no aftertaste. An unoffensive, uncomplicated winter ale. Pretty much gutless.

TheDean (786) - MIlwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 1, 2003
Interesting taste, but not that good. Somewhat fruity...not expected in a beer this dark.

pobenohne (504) - Northern Liberties, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 8, 2004
Sampled at Paninin’s on the OSU campus in Columbus. Dark brew, thin head, malty, but somewhat skunked: old hops? poor handling? Put this back and ordered a Blue Moon.

The best thing about this beer was the color. Taste was not remarkable, slightly metallic. Not a beer for me.

elamericano (34) - Moscow, USA - OCT 12, 2013
UPDATED: OCT 19, 2013 Pours pretty dark, nice frothy head that lasts forever. Slightly fruity, slightly spicy. Dry. Nothing fantastic, nothing terrible.

Wimpy flavor. Disappointing for Redhook.
