COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Redhook Blonde combines the best attributes of a flavorful golden ale with the refreshing qualities of a lager. The ale is brewed with three different malts and two hop varietals. Lightly roasted barley and a touch of wheat, combined with an ample portion of hops, creates a truly crowd pleasing beer . Redhook Blonde pairs well with medium flavored foods such as fish, nachos or salad. Available year round.

Clear golden color, some carbonation, very small head, light lacing. Grain and biscuity malts, with a bit of hops giving a dry finish.

Reviewed from notes. This was poured into a pint glass. The appearance had a golden blonde color with a one finger white bubbly and somewhat foamy white head. There was some light lacing that slid into the beer. The smell had a light sweet corn, light citrus and a piney hops to it. The taste followed the nose. On the palate, this one sat pretty light and came across pretty sessionable. Overall, decent to good blonde ale I could see maybe possibly having again depending upon what else was there.

Iíve always loved the session mild drinkable beer, itís been a staple for me since itís release, and it is being released again in 2014. It is clean tasting and refreshing.

8/17/2011. From bottle. Pale yellow with a white head. Corn, malt and hay aromas. Little going on in terms of flavors. Light hops, watery and just boring.

Another beer I had awhile back but apparently forgot to rate. A ho-hum beer (like so many redhook beers to me).

Not great but not horrible. Aroma and flavor is very mild. Not very complex and a bit watery. Just boring.

Barreras (968) - Diamond Bar, California, USA - JUL 23, 2012
Pours a pale bubbly yellow with aroma of hops mixed with a slight sweetness of fruit. Taste is slightly sour with a hint of hops that dissapates after the swallow. Overall a decent blonde golden ale with no complexity.

jmagnus87 (2427) - Rockford, Illinois, USA - MAY 14, 2012
Bottle poured into a shaker. Pours a deep gold with about a finger of white head. Aroma of light citrus and a little bready wheat. Taste is lightly bitter. Medium-light bodied with a somewhat thin texture. Lively carbonation and a decently long finish. Overall, not bad. Nothing I would seek out but I would drink it again.

seymour (1410) - Maplewood, Missouri, USA - OCT 17, 2011
Tasted bottle from mix pack into standard pint glass. Poured a clear, light golden color with fluffy white foam, somewhat lasting with a little lace. Aroma of grass, toast, distant noble hops, very faint roasted barley and even fainter fruity yeast phenols. Flavor is almost entirely neutral, but hints of malt-sweetness, hops bitterness, and just a little apricot. This isnít a spicy Belgian blond ale, and itís not a crisp, clean lager either. Itís something in between; not bad but kind of bland and boring. Still drinkable and relatively refreshing, would be good with rich food.

scooterbub (823) - Lander, Wyoming, USA - APR 24, 2011
12 ounce bottle. Pours a clear gold color and has a nice, one inch, white head that slowly fades. Taste is of malt, barley, honey, grass and some hops. Similar aroma. Has a decent body. There is a slight bitterness towards the end. Not as easy to drink as I thought it would be. Not bad, but not worth getting again.
