Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: BeerAdvocate on 07-30-2001

Brewed in the style of a traditional British ESB (Extra Special Bitter), we’ve been making ESB continuously since 1987, and it’s now the benchmark for the Amber beer category. Despite having “bitter” in its name, Redhook ESB is really not that bitter at all. This brew is all about the balance of caramel malt sweetness completed by spicy, citrusy hops.

First craft style beer I had when I moved to Seattle 20 years ago. Goes with everything especially BBQ. Available everywhere by bottle, sometimes on tap. My go to when there is nothing else to try in the place I'm trying.
