Redhook ESB

Very odd color for an ESB – it’s much too plae and yellow, but putside of that, pretty nice.

Sharp and clean taste to this increasingly common brew. It has some characteristics of an amber ale. Pours really nicely with a couple of fingers worth of bubbly head, but little or no lacing. Another beer which will benefit from a little warming up. I found it refreshing with a clean, dry aftertaste.

Sugared grapefruit in the taste and surprisingly hoppy given the Genesis of this beer.

Definitely one to try if you are not familiar.
