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.

DruncanVeasey (7099) - NUNEATON, Top 13, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - SEP 13, 2012
Bottle in Kaua’i. Bright gold, good foaming top. Faint flowering shrub, beeswax aroma. Bit drab and almond-like with a shave of zest. Low bitterness, little hop, zero malt. Drab, a touch metallic, nothing like a pilsner.

mkgrenwel (564) - Cambridge, Massachusetts, USA - SEP 10, 2012
Golden straw pour. Thin force-carbonated head. Aroma of biscuits and apple. Light malty character with very little hops. Could use some bitterness or hop flavor beyond just enough to balance. As a helles or vienna I would probably like this a good bit more. No problematic flaws. Ultimately a pretty good sessionable lager.

maley1 (729) - calgary, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 10, 2012
Bright clear yellow pour with medium sized white head. Aroma of hay, slightly floral. Taste of sweet malts, yeast, slightly fruity and a slight hop finish. Nice and crisp mouthfeel and very refreshing, highly drinkable. Very good pilsener.

robforbes (2055) - Bremerton, Washington, USA - SEP 8, 2012
had as a rope swing. pours a clear pale yellow with a small white head. smell is of some grain, lime, some lemon, and a touch of floral. taste is crisp, clean, some yeast, sweet malt, and citrus. ends nicely refreshing.

DalzAle (1944) - Eden Prairie, Minnesota, USA - SEP 1, 2012
Bottle. Clear dark yellow pour, almost no head and a slightly sweet pear aroma. Flavor is light hay, white grapes, pear and slightly sweet on the aftertaste. Not bad.

sawbuck (286) - Round Lake, Illinois, USA - AUG 20, 2012
Pours a bright gold...thin head...aroma barely there. Surprised by a crisp flavor up front, hay with notes of slight caramel and slight bitter finish. Thin texture with livley carbonation.

Radek Kliber (6368) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - AUG 13, 2012
Virginia Trip – bottle 355 ml
Aroma not very pilsner like. Grainy basic notes, touch of green apple.
Appearance bright golden look with medium foamy top (short lived).3-
Flavor and Palate : Green apple, lacking body. Mineral feel at mid. Some malty sweetness behind. Felt macro like. Finishing hints of cardboard. Disappointing.

txspartan (959) - Wilrijk, BELGIUM - AUG 6, 2012
Some milky notes in its aroma. Decent head. Strong malt flavour. Little hoppyness.

BlackEyePA (559) - USA - JUL 31, 2012
It was ok, but good for a plain pils. It is true to style, dry grainy pils yeastiness with straw hay color taste and aroma. One dimensional and plain but seems to be the style overall

JediMindTricks (446) - Remington, Virginia, USA - JUL 30, 2012
Pours a crystal-clear straw color, aroma is light and crisp. Flavor is mild, with a good hint of those saaz hops. Pretty solid.
