The beer itself pours a lovely golden color and smells like a nice bowl of frosted flakes. As soon as it hits the tongue you get a nice mix of sweet malts and bitter hops and the hops finish all the way down. Amazingly crisp and very drinkable all the way through.

Pretty standard for the style. Not a whole lot going on in terms of flavor, but has a nice texture to it and it drinks easily. There’s a bit of a biscuity flavor and the hops are a little more forward than you’d expect. Overall: meh.

12oz bottle. Pours a pale yellow with very little white head. Sorry Ben but nothing great here. I guess for the style it’s OK but I really don’t get this one. It taste like a slightly above average typical macro.

Bonus appearance point because I dig the new Redhook bottles. Dark yellow, nicely carbonated, not much head. Smells like toast and I don’t know, beer? It smells like beer. There. I’ve said it. Taste is bready, toasty, with a grassy hop finish.

9th August 2012<br<GBBF - as Redhook Cream Ale 4.8%. Cask. Hazy pale gold beer. Small bubbly white head. Light palate. Interesting flavour of peach and apricot, very slightly sour, over creamy malt. Semi dry finish. Good. Didn’t realise at the time this would ultimately be the tribute beer so hats off to Ben Harris.
