2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
12oz bottle. Bottled on 04.05.10. Golden yellow pour. Thin white head. Aroma of wheat and corn, a bit grainy. Flavor is sweet cereal and a bit of grass. A sharp hop bite. A bit over carbonated. Finishes a bit on the sharp side. Not too pleasant. Kinda like Longhammer, a nice attempt to a well selling style, just not done right on a large scale. BLAH.

Thanks to mar for sharing this bottle.
The beer pours a clear yellow color with a white head. The aroma is corn and wheat. Not too great. The flavor is very similar. The corn and wheat stand out and this tastes a whole lot like a macro lager. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Not something I would try again.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Light gold, clear as day with one finger head. Grainy and sweet, but not overly so. A little floral hint made this refreshing and moderately enjoyable.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: MAY 25, 2010 12 ounce bottle - $1.49 at Total Wine & More in Kennesaw, Georgia. Bottle on: 04-22-10.
Appearance: Pours a crystal clear, yellow body with a smallish, fizzly, white head.
Smell: Aroma of pilsner malts accented by a pervasive grainy character and teensy hint of honey. Also noble hop notes of dehydrated grasses and spice.
Taste: Pils and pale malts with a pointed graininess to it. Mild cereal sweetness, like a taste of Golden Crisp. Floral, grassy, lightly spicy Saaz hop character with a decent pinch of bitterness. More graininess and grassiness on the dry, reasonably crisp finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Medium-high carbonation. Fairly soft mouthfeel.
Drinkability: Goes down easy enough, I suppose. A little more graininess than I’m looking for in a pilsner, but otherwise it’s acceptable.

Bottle. Pours a clear, light gold with white head. Aroma of light pilsner malt, light grain, light citrus. Flavor is very much the same with a bit of grass, light earth and a small bitter at the end. Mouth feel is light body with high carbonation. Overall, easy drinking refreshing beer.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Typical golden yellow lager, with a nice bubbly white head.
Aroma isnt too hot..lot of paper and biscuit.
Taste however is very nice, slightly fruity,malt driven, slight hop..gets a little drier and even salty at the end.
Nice mouthfeel.. have to give it high marks..good balance dry at the end leads to another gulp easily.
Overall not a great pilsner but a very drinkable and enjoyable beer after work on the first mid to upper 70 degree day of the year.
i actually thought it a lighter helles rather than a pilsner.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Not a bad showing from the Woodinville Redhook. A very well made Bo Pils, sparkling clarity, good head and nice Saaz spicy aroma. No major flaws, however finishes a tad toward the sweeter end of the spectrum. Body is appropriate for the style with good carbonation and mouthfeel. Crisp maltiness shines through especially in the finish. A very good domestic BoPils.
