Redhook ESB

Redhook ESB

Ratebeer 3.05 49th percentile
Beer Advocate B-
Taste +3

It gave a big nose and full mouth feel that were the same. Full on roasted malt, bread and toffee filled every inch of your mouth. The added astringency from the bitter grapefruit hops just made it that much nicer.

Aftertaste +2

You were left with a long, long lasting bitter, roasted grain finish. It might be a little much for some people.
Alcohol Content 0 5.77%

Value +1

This was a nice bitter; certainly one I would get again. I paid $6 for a plastic cupful on the Washington State ferry.

Ingame Enhancement +1

You heard me right; beer on the ferry. WOOT.

Overall 7/10

A nice mix of bitter and IPA styles.
