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.

daknole (10350) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - SEP 14, 2008
Bottle from a trade...finally decided to open it as my last beer for the weekend. Amberish pour with a small white head. Aroma is a fair balance of yeast, malt and some hops. Flavor has some grain, yeast, malt and slight hops. Not bad but fairly boring.

UPDATED: AUG 11, 2003 This beer rocks. This beer so desperately wants to be BASS, but comes up just a bit short in almost every category. Still, an excellent blond ale. Try one... try six, I hear the business end of Redhook isn't doing so well right now.

Dogbrick (10001) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - AUG 3, 2002
Draught version. Golden colored with a medium head that lasted fairly long, also lively carbonation. Sweet yeasty/citrusy aroma that bordered on a German Wheat. Light and refreshing if a little on the sweet side. I did enjoy this one somewhat, but mostly because I got it on tap. I’m not sure how well this would translate to a bottle.

arminjewell (8842) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - OCT 4, 2010
Pours hazy yellow with white head, aroma of a touch of esters, grassy hops, straw. Taste is some light fruit, grass, sweet pils malt, slightly dry finish. Not bad, but nothing really good about it.

DocLock (8798) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 13, 2004
Pours gold, with medium head/lace. Aroma of malt, some hops, some floral/spice. Tastes of malt, slight hops and fruit, and slight honey. Finishes fairly smooth and crisp.

DruncanVeasey (7882) - NUNEATON, TOP, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - NOV 1, 2010
Tap, Pour 24, Las Vegas, Nevada. Dusty yellow with a scant white halo. Heavy diacetyl aroma with underlying hop greenery and..banana? Fizzy and brain-chillingly cold with notes of lemon jelly, biscuit and butter. Some orange and lychee on the belch. Not loved or looked after. Probably much better than this.

12 oz. bottle. Pours a clear golden color (who didn’t see this coming?) with a small white head. The faint aroma was dough, light malt, and grain. The flavor was sweet malts and some hops. Clean, crisp finish. Light bodied. Not bad for a summer day. Not as bad as others may have rated.
