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.

Ibrew2or3 (6835) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - AUG 6, 2011
Very cool shaped 12oz bottle poured clear deep gold with copper hues and white head. The aroma is sweet malts, spicy hops, some mild malt graininess and floral hops. The taste is similar with pretty bold spicy hops ringed by thin layers of floral hops, grainy malts and sweet maltiness off in the background. A bit too much on the floral side for my taste.

Hansen (6563) - Assentoft, DENMARK - FEB 2, 2013
Light golden coloured and clear. Has a white head, diminishing. Aroma with notes of old grains, a bit anoying, faint hoppy notes. Flavor starts sweet, then some more old grains, finish moderate bitter.

Radek Kliber (6386) - 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.

5000 (6239) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - NOV 26, 2011
Bottle:   Fiery straw, clear, thin to moderate sudsy white head, sparce lacing, light carbonation.   Grassy nose, a little straw/hay.   Has a mealy quality to it, but unlike the Sunburn by Widmer it has a bit more flavor that lasts a little longer.   Still the same old grassy/straw/hay aspect.   Smidgen more sweetness, but not much.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Finishes with a mealiness that I just dont care for.   I miss their old Blonde, well compared to this at least.   Curious how the new Blonde works out.   This one seems a little too flat and uninteresting overall.

Bottle. Yellow pour with a white head. Aroma and taste are very muted malt and citrus, with a bit of funkiness. Just okay.

drowland (5989) - Valdosta, Georgia, USA - NOV 8, 2011
11/8/11. 12oz bottle. Super clear somewhat dark golden pour with a small, fluffy off-white head that cuts fast and barely laces. Very plain, light aroma, with barely anything... perhaps a touch of apples and dusty graininess. Sweet, malty entry at first but it fades to slightly tart and fruity followed by bitter graininess that reminds me slightly of cracker and popcorn. Meh.

SudsMcDuff (5806) - .....Manchester United.........., Texas, USA - JUN 8, 2010
Pours a basic gold, with a low sturdy headring .. . God, it was so personal! Like you could see right through me. .. light hop bitterness, it is quite well balanced! .. . bottled 4/5/10 .. . i enjoyed it, but needs more of an aggressive bite .. . smell needs improvement, but other than that .. . Go Brain!
