Not bad. A little less intense then most blondes, it’s most notable character is it’s bready, yeasty flavor. While I was taken aback at first at such a diversion from the traditional style, this one really grew on me. The best Red Hook I have tried (though admittedly I haven’t tried a lot).

Very smooth and has a high drinkability factor. Great for watching sporting events or hanging out with friends.

Not much to look at but more than makes up for it in flavor. Very smooth and satisfying.

Better than average, and remained tasty after sitting open on sampling table. Most of Red Hooks brews seem to be too hoppy for my tastes, but this was smooth. Not weak and almost citrus finish...?

Had from bottle. Aroma is a solid malt/hop balance forward, sweet. The malt overpowered the hops a bit after being open a few minutes. Beer is golden yellow with a white low retention head, clear. Flavor is sweet, bready malt forward, no aftertaste, with medium bitterness and a slight graininess. Mouthfeel has light carbonation feel for what seems to be med-high carbonation, medium body, and overall a very smooth, slightly creamy texture. Overall, this has always been en extremely easy-drinking beer to me. Always enjoy the sweetness and balance this one offers. A lot of blondes just taste like pilsners to me. The round ale yeastiness in this just gives such a different impression.

A blonde ale with blonde color. Refreshing. Light bodied and mild hops. Same catagory as Blue Moon and Sunset Wheat without the strong flavoring of orange and corriander. Good ale to start with.

This beer reminded me vaguely of Caffrey’s. It is creamy with a hint of fruit. It was better than I expected. I’m not big on blonde ales, but this one is definately worth trying. Excellent brew.
