Nothing here except crystal clear bubble h20. I guess on hot day no infections or wierd stuff going on. What youíd expect n a blonde. Iíd drink over any of big boys sucky stuff.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

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.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

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

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.
