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.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft tonight, twice at the local with dinner. First one was free since the 2010 mug club mugs finally came in. A nice yellow with hints of haze and a nice fluffy white head. Nose has some grass and grains. Body is lightly hopped but full bodied. Cant go so far as to say it is robust though. An easy session brew. Smooth and clean.
