Clear brown/amber. No head. Mild aroma, toffee if any. "Drinkable", I guess. Mild if any hops, slight metallic flavor. Won’t buy next year.

Winter ales usually arent my favorite. This one was probably the best of the winter ales Ive had but I still didnt care too much for it.

Deep brown in color with a quickly diminishing tan head, this beer is bland with a bitter bite from the roasted malt. No spice. No character.

Caramel malts. Harsh finish. Completely average beer. DIdnt expect much more from a red hook brew.

Bottle. Pours an amber color with white head. Caramel, toast, malty, slight booze aromas. Malty, toast, slight metallic flavors. Pretty blah, pass.

igneous1 (1535) - Davenport, Iowa, USA - OCT 28, 2002
clear reddish-orange color, thin head dissipating almost immediately. aroma is a bit fruity with some apple and pear flavors. overall a thin beer, one id hardly call "robust"

Heavily heavily spiced. Extremely anisey with a fat sweet finish. Yuck.

clear copper, light but clinging head. tinny aroma. the first sip, i was like "ew, tastes like amber bock mixed with bud", but after it sat out for a while it wasnt as bad as i initially thought. not spicy at all, but a nice malty flavor. fizzy but somewhat watery palate. itll do in a pinch i suppose.

BarePaw (148) - Pullman, Washington, USA - JAN 13, 2003
The head was thin and didnt last long. The feel on my palate wasnt impressive. It has a nice fruity flavor, but it isnt very strong. It isnt my favorite winter brew.

I bought a case of this beer back in December and gave most of it out for Xmas beer to my friends and family. Nobody came back to me with any remarks on this beer. I put a few aside for myself and I was not impressed. Winterhook taste wise was a far cry from other English Strong Ales I've tried. Maybe it's the way the Yanks brew this style of beer because I was also not impressed by Weyebacher's Winter Ale, supposably another English Strong Ale.
