COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Available in bottle and keg seasonally. Hook Island Red is a robust red Rye ale with Chinook, Columbus and Simcoe hops. A hefty 20% of the malt make-up is rye, lending dryness and spice notes to the brew. Combined with pine and passion fruit flavours of the American hops, this is a complex, idiosyncratic brew that is a special part of our range.

Moolesen (627) - NETHERLANDS - AUG 23, 2016
Bottle 33cl. Red/brown with a tanned foamy head. Funny aroma of sweet malt and some hops in the back. Bitter taste with some sweetness. Strange combination. The bitterness stays quite long.

Bottled. Ambery brown colour with a small beige creamy head, that leaves some lace. Aroma is smoked wet wood, some rye bread and mild citrusy and floral notes. Flavour is quite similar, but has a nice crisp maltiness to it.

RichardGretton (4862) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - FEB 6, 2016
Bottle. Reddish amber coloured beer with a very strong slightly off white head. The aroma is well hopped, and the flavour is well hopped with bags of bitterness and dryness. Overall a nice amber coloured well hopped beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
