Wimpy flavor. Disappointing for Redhook.

Lackluster. Nothing distinguishing about this beer; can’t believe they’re trying to pass this off as a special holiday beer. Bitter malts accented by vomity hops. Strong metallic aftertaste. Pours a toasted amber with virtually no head. I was not impressed.

Clear reddish. No aroma. Bitterish taste but even that is a stretch. Very boring and bland.

Poured from 12oz bottle. Nice amber coloring and a semi-full mouthfeel. Not overpowering but great flavor. Great interpretation of the style. --you've been Dubbed.

Unexciting. The 2000 bottling seems to have fared better in these ratings.

Huh. The main problem here is that I just had Bell's Old Ale and this beer instantly came on like the whiny, annoying third cousin of that marvelous beer. This is pretty pathetic - quiet, limp, basic stuff.

I.C.suds (189) - Da U.P. eh?, Michigan, USA - DEC 8, 2003
Dark amber with a frothy but short lived light tan head. Spicy hop aroma. No chance to identify the malt- overly hopped- Resiny aftertaste reminds me of doing bong hits in college back in '75.

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

Poured deep brown with a thin tan head...smell is worn socks, and a hint of coffee...taste is bitter and sour...this is foul...

Bottled, lame is a word that springs to mind. Very dissapointing for a supposed winter ale. Light choc, caramel, little hops noticable, grainy and thin, no bitterness, cola like texture.
