Redhook ESB

redhook_esb

I don’t know if ESB (Extra Special Bitter) is Redhook’s best selling beer, but I wouldn’t be surprised if it is since it seems to be the one that I consistently have the least trouble finding.  It’s a coppery-colored amber ale that doesn’t have much of a scent.  It’s got what I’d call a faintly metallic taste, with a balance of malt and hops that makes for a fairly mild taste, and a mildly bitter finish.   It’s a nice beer, but not exceptional.

I give it a 3.1 out of 5.
