Bottle poured into a pint glass.
The appearance of this beer is a nice copper orange color with no real head or lacing. This looks pretty average in the ESB category and there is nothing really making it stand out. The smell is sweet, fruity and malty. There is a candy sweetness in the aroma. The taste is good and malty and sweet. There is just a touch of bitterness in their to balance out the malty backbone of this beer and everything seems to be pretty well in check. The flavors range from caramels to burnt sugar, and from fruity hops to a metallic twang that seems just a tad off. Not bad though. The mouthfeel is good. The carbonation is nice and rather low for the style and it feels creamy in the mouth.
Not a bad ESB for a company that can be bought just about anywhere. I am not big on Red Hook but this isn't too bad.
