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.

blipp (6957) - San Diego, California, USA - APR 26, 2008
Bottle. Pours amber with a white head. Aroma is light caramel and floral. Medium body. Light malt flavor with caramel and floral notes. Not bad but rather boring.

drowland (6824) - Georgia, USA - AUG 4, 2009
12oz bottle to a pint glass. Decent example of the style, but almost... dumbed down a bit to make it more drinkable.

Ernest (6723) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAY 17, 2003
Head is initially small, fizzy, white, fully diminishing. Body is clear medium yellow. Aroma is lightly malty (grain), lightly hoppy (herbs, flowers), with a fairly strong note of DMS. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter, unclean. Light to medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. DMS-laden aroma with a dirty aftertaste, what more could you ask for?

after4ever (6686) - Brier, Washington, USA - OCT 31, 2007
Draft at the Woodinville brewpub. Pours crystal clear medium amber, almost indistinguishable in appearance and aroma from the Sun Rye. Scant white head. Neutral nose, very light body and attack--soft carb, and a sweet, almost corny body. No finish. Not much of a start or a middle, either, come to think of it.

Cletus (6355) - Connecticut, USA - JUL 29, 2009
Pours gold with a thin white head. Smells of toasted malt, some fruity hints. Tastes of sweet malt wth some fruity hints. An easy drinking lawnmower beer.

5000 (6300) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - JAN 22, 2004
UPDATED: JAN 29, 2004 Bottle pours a translucent yellow with a fine bubbly frothy white head. I am somewhat amazed at the amount of head and lacing of this brew. Slight hints of sweetened straw and grains. Mouthfeel has a bit of malty chewiness, somewhat wheat like. The hops are very subtle. I enjoyed this one more than I thought I would. Great for a summer day.

PorterPounder (6197) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAR 16, 2003
Aroma - barely there - but it is fresh. Nice cloudy appearnce, thick creamy head, good lacing. Starts off with a bit-o-honey taste to it and then the hoppiness takes over in a pleasant and subtle way. Excellent mouthfeel - coats your mouth - thick.

djd07 (6034) - 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.

Braudog (6014) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - MAY 10, 2003
UPDATED: MAY 23, 2007 Dark yellow with standing off-white head, exceptionally still. Hop-malt nose of note. OK frothy, very sweet hop-cereal flavor with mellow finish. Bit thin, but viscuous.
