Crisp refreshing and clean amber ale that really does go well with some crab legs fresh off the ocean. Fredis23 (564) - Hickory Hills, Illinois, USA - APR 20, 2013
Light Copper Color, Slight Head, No Lacing. Lightly malty and hoppy. Seems to be too carbonated and has some weird taste. Tried a couple of bottles on a couple of different occasions. It was hard to drink and did not enjoy it. Pass it... Capa (3295) - Kitsap, Washington, USA - APR 17, 2013
Malty, lightly toasted, caramel, and crisp hop bitterness. Easy going but uneventful. Decent slugging beer. Caytinator (1005) - Waco, Texas, USA - APR 11, 2013
12oz bottle. Clear pour, small bubbly persistent head. LIght honey color. Kind of ugly. Light, hay aroma. Very light taste, not too much in it. A little fizzy, just enough taste to be acceptable. Light body, little aftertaste. Patrickctenchi (6587) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - MAR 22, 2013
Pours murky, dark yellow with a small, off-white head.
Scent is lightly fruited, caramel.
Taste is malty, berry flavour.....raspberry/blueberry....slightly bitter, chalky berry aspects.
My rate seems to be a bit anomalous compared to others, but, that’s what I’m tasting...anyway, I think it’s pretty good....light, fruity, lively.

Mixed 12-pack of bottles from grocery store. Definitely copper in color. Minimal aroma, "neutral". Taste is almost sweet with a light finish. Not my favorite Red Hook product. arventresca (567) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - MAR 1, 2013
Bottle in mix pack. Just not doing it for me. I can’t find the ESB anywhere anymore, and besides the longhammer, that’s my choice from these guys. camborne (656) - Hopkins, Minnesota, USA - FEB 23, 2013
Minimal nose. Caramel sweet palate with some malty taste. Goes down smooth but not very complex VALIS (229) - Nashua, New Hampshire, USA - FEB 22, 2013
UPDATED: MAR 23, 2013 Aroma of corn, malt. Taste is oddly sweet, but also watery. Palate is nice and crisp, no bad aftertaste. Inoffensive food beer. dwyerpg (6180) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - FEB 16, 2013
I thought I rated this, but now I will. I remember this as being a fairly decent beer with a fine caramel flavor yet nothing truly great. Apparently it wasn’t memorable enough to rate at the time.
