Drake (8030) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - JAN 23, 2009
12 ounce bottle courtesy of Alraomon, Thanks! Pours a golden amber color with a thin fizzy head. Aroma is weak, but shows grainy and sweet malty notes. Taste is grain, honey, mild hop notes. Thin-medium bodied.

bluemooner (600) - East Bethel, Minnesota, USA - JAN 19, 2009
Pours a yellow golden color with thin white head. A rather thin, drinkable ale with flavors of some hops, grains, and a little sweetness. Not spectacular.

djd07 (3372) - Houston, Texas, USA - JAN 5, 2009
Bottle. Pours a cloudy yellow golden with a small white head that diminishes quickly. The aroma is a light malt with yeast and light hop. The taste is a corn malt with light fruit and a bitter finish. Not too much going on with this golden ale from Redhook.

fidelis83 (1910) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - DEC 31, 2008
Pours light gold with a few tiny particulates and a 1 finger white head that quickly fades to a skim. Aroma is raw bread dough, wet straw, mop water and citrus hops. Flavor is grainy malt, sweet, toast and roast, a little nutty even. FInish is bitter hops grainy malt and a little corny, not sure if this has corn though. Body is thin and well carbonated. Decent brew, would be good for a BBQ / with ribs or other rich succulent meats. Not a great brew but I could see myself knocking back quite a few on a nice summer (hopefully bbq) evening.

mrant (330) - New York, USA - DEC 11, 2008
Smells very light, faint aroma of hay. Taste is heavier than it smells, decent amount of darkish malts for a golden. More flavorful than I was expecting. A decent Red Hook offering

cbeers21 (693) - Miami, Florida, USA - NOV 28, 2008
Tap @ brewery. Decent loloking, nice head. LIhglt everything, light malts light hops and a distant spiced quality. Not outstanding, however everything goes well with each other, albeit quietly. A decent session brew.
