COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Redhook Pilsner is brewed in a traditional Czech style and is the first pilsner Redhook Ale Brewery has ever released. Red Hook Pilsner offers a very soft palate and malt flavors that are offset by a medium dose of distinct Czech hops to bring out its authentic flavors. The refreshing beer finishes with a clean, bright, thirst-quenching quality. Red Hook Pilsner pairs nicely with barbecued chicken, bratwurst, spicy food, fresh fish, and green salad.

Sampled on 5/23/2010. This Bohemian Pilsner pours a medium orange gold color from a 12oz bottle. Medium sized white foamy head with decent lacing. The aroma is cereal and grain with some floral hops. A medium to light bodied Bohemian Pilsner. The malts are grainy and cereal, slightly sweet. The hops are floral. Nice carbonation. Drinkable, but it needs to be some more malt and a little more spiciness. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is crisp and clean. The aftertaste is slightly bitter.

Beerlando (3342) - Orlando, Florida, USA - MAY 23, 2010
Fresh Bottle. Pours a clear, medium golden hue with a centered, concentrated stream of effervescing bubbles. A small, pure white layer of smooth froth sits at the head, settling quickly to a thin film. Soapy lacing mostly rejoins the body, though a few elongated spots do remain behind. The aroma is of relatively sweet cereal grain malts, corn, sugary bread dough, and mild floral hops. Flavors follow suit, falling well on the sweet side of balanced for the style, and showing far too much sweet corn sugars. Cereal grain and gummy dough again dominant a weak, slightly peppery, floral hop profile. The palate also sports the ill effects of too much sugar, showing sticky, cloying tendencies that are not at all what Iím looking for in a pils. Reminds me alot of stateside Pilsner Urquell, which is far too sweet.

unclemattie (4226) - Georgia, USA - MAY 22, 2010
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. 4,3,4,2,9

Mora2000 (5790) - McKinney, Texas, USA - MAY 21, 2010
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.

Goodgrief (1801) - Middletown, Delaware, USA - MAY 18, 2010
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.

bu11zeye (11971) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - MAY 18, 2010
(12oz bottle, courtesy of mar) Pours a clear yellow body with a small white head. Aroma of soap, grain, and straw. Flavor of toasted grain, light soap, grass, and cereal.

ChainGangGuy (4393) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - MAY 17, 2010
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 Iím looking for in a pilsner, but otherwise itís acceptable.

SphinxTX (2876) - Mata Gorda, Texas, USA - MAY 14, 2010
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.

Reid (1926) - Salem, Oregon, USA - MAY 13, 2010
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.
