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.

bhensonb (11070) - Woodland, California, USA - NOV 18, 2006
Light malt and hop aroma. Tarnished gold color with virtually no head. Substantial mouthfeel. Sweetish malt coats the mouth, but hops get the edges of the tongue. However, the strongest impression is carbonation. The flavors are nice, but not very strong. I think some citrus develops in the finish. Decent and drinkable.
