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.

Pailhead (6376) - Plymouth, Michigan, USA - JAN 12, 2005
Bottle: Sweet with light honey and Euro-lager aromas. Pours a lightly hazy yellowish-orange with a small white head with little staying power. Not much up front with very light sour and very light hop finish. Bland and boring.

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.

Braudog (6247) - Yorktown, Virginia, 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.

riversideAK (6078) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - OCT 19, 2007
Golden and bubbly. Mildly sweet malty aroma. Flavor is a little bready, biscuity, and lightly fruity in the finish.

JK (5631) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - APR 23, 2005
Light hop aroma. Light brown color with a large head. Sweet malt; enjoyable for what it is. Medium body. The wheat is barely noticeable, but it is there.

Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - JUL 20, 2005
A rather lackluster golden ale, this near headless brew has a mildly sweet, grassy aroma. The flavor is bland, some slight, light pome fruitiness, some sweet graininess, a touch of herbal hops. Uninteresting.

ClarkVV (5559) - Allston, Massachusetts, USA - APR 2, 2005
2005 bottle. Light yellow body, mostly clear, maybe a chill haze, maybe not. Small white head, some retention. Aroma of grass, hay, wheat and a touch of grains. Flavor is a tad bitter, crisp on the finish and has a mellow hint of vanilla and honey, with some metaliic earthy/toasty grains. I make it sound more flavorful than it is, however, as it is mostly a dry, watery concoction of wheat, grassy hops and light almonds.

Redhook sure does suck.

jgb9348 (5553) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - FEB 9, 2003
Barely gold in colour with a completely white head. Smells like water also. Tastes like metal with a hint of a hop flavour. No malt detected and barely a taste at all. Not a good beer.

thedm (5551) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - SEP 24, 2003
This brew poured a medium sized head of off-white colored mostly lasting bubbles that left behind a fair lacing and a hazy light yellow orange brown colored softly carbonated body. It has a mild malt hop aroma. The mouthfeel is crisp and bubbly in the start with a mild tingly finish. The flavor is a medium strength malt hop one and is very refreshing. A very good choice for our dinner this evening.

Overall Impression: Had this one a bunch of times, usually out of a Redhook sampler pack, it’s an alright example of the Blonde style. Flavors are fairly muted, thin, and light, if that’s your cup-of-tea, you’ll probably enjoy this one more then I do.
