Day #334 – Redhook Winterhook

December 1, 2011

Redhook Winterhook


This is the seasonal ale from Redhook. It is an English Strong Ale at 6% ABV.

This beer pours a clear amber orange color with a white foamy head.

The aroma is hoppier than I was anticipating. Strong aroma of hops, winter spice like ginger perhaps and a strong malty character as well.

The flavor matches the aroma with the maltier flavor taking the lead. The hops provide a bitter backbone and finish with the spice being felt more than tasted. Also has a floral flavor to it which I wasn’t expecting. Not bad.
